    Hi All,

    I'm new to this forum and to Zed ownership, delighted to meet everyone. It looks (from what I've seen) like everyone on here is as passionate about their Zed's as I am.

    I'm unable to find so far if there is a South Yorkshire group on here, one that has regular meets, can anyone help?

    Cheers,

    Colin.

    Hi Colin, welcome to the forum from near Lincoln. We have very good friends from Roth originally they now live at Torksey Lock near Lincoln.
    There's a small meet on Sunday at 1.00 at the Trent Port pub at Gainsborough and you would be very welcome if you would like to come over.
    This is classed as a North Lincs. meet but S. yorks is very close at Bawtry anyway.
    Will be back later, have darts matches on Monday nights so cheers for now,Tony.:)

    Welcome Colin,

    There aren't really that many organised zed groups in the UK, and those that are have developed slowly over the years. There are quite a few members in your area, so hopefully some of them will pop up and say hi in a bit.

    Any meets are usually published in the Forthcoming Events section, and we always welcome volunteer organisers :)

    Cheers, Gary

    Hi Guys,

    Thanks for the replies. I'm not sure yet if Sunday at 1pm will work until we get our daughters rota - might have to babysit!!

    If I can't make it I will definitely look out for other get-togethers as I would like to meet other owners.

    Colin.

    Thanks everyone. Looking forward to some lively debate.

    Tony,

    Still hoping to make 1pm at Gainsborough but playing golf in the morning and might be a little late. What time will you be there until?

    Colin.

    Great to see you Colin and the other guys, great cars, the interior of your '4' is amazing. Will keep you posted on the next meet hope to do a 'Seaside meet' but Shepshed is coming up, and Pete 'Koolflyer' is looking to arrange a special one later! Hope to see you again soon.

    Cheers Eddie1 (Pete),

    Your wife was telling mine that you're arranging a BBQ meet (or should that be meat!!) at yours too.

    I hope you knew about that and she's not arranging it behind your back??

    Let us know when and I'll grab some burgers and buns (breadcakes as I'm a true Yorkie) on the way over.

    See you all soon,

    Colin.
