    We had a few cars go to this event last year, and despite being a bit drizzly was a good day out! I went in my MINI Cooper last year, and was the token MINI for the day :shifty:. The chips from the beach front chippy were spectacularly good too!

    They are usually very nice on the day, and will let us park as a group if you fancy it!

    Some pictures from last year are here - http://zroadster.org/media/categories/2013-bms-on-the-lawn.27/

    ---------

    This event is in its fifth year, I think we started with a dozen cars, we now get over forty cars, so we are growing every year. The day is very informal and friendly, and we welcome any type of BMW/ Mini, classic or modern and is a chance for like minded enthusiasts to meet and discuss each others cars.

    The event will be on Sunday the 15th of June, and the event will take place on the hard standing opposite what used to be the Tropicana, on the sea front(please see attachment for location, same as last year)

    We also have a sponsor, Clayton Cars of Bristol, a local independent BMW specialist who will be providing the trophies and some raffle prizes, not to mention technical advice if required.

    For the slightly more competitive, we are also holding a show & shine competition, where each entrant chooses there three most favourite vehicles, There is also a trophy for the sponsors favourite car.This is not as stringent as a concourse competition, but just adds a bit of fun. The cost of entering the show and shine is £2.00. If this is not your cup of tea, then you are welcome to just park up and enjoy the show.

    The show times will be from 10am till 4pm

    Hi Gaz

    I would like to attend but it's unlikely I could stay for the whole 6 hours! On the assumption there is some flex on arrival/departure timings then count me in!

    There was no issue at all on being able to arrive/leave when you wanted last year. It's not like a show where you have to park and not move, it's more like a structured car park meet ;)

    Would have liked to come to this:( but it clashes with the Dorset Sea Run which I'm going on:). Perhaps next year...

    There are no costs at all with this event. It's likely we will all be on the handstand unless there is a big turnout, at which case we overspill on to the grass.

    As you say, maybe next year :). Was a bit slow putting this one up this year!

    Ok, I'll remember to count in the Facebook people as well. It's just so I can give the car club organiser rough numbers before the day. Helps them with their organisation for the day.
