The retro rides gathering is taking place at Shelsley Walsh on Sunday 28th August 2016.

I will be going down on the Sunday morning with some others but thought it would be good to get some other 924 owners there. Is anyone interested in going or even going already? If there is enough going maybe we could try and book a club stand? I'm happy to try and sort this but if someone with more experience at this kind of stuff want to sort it that's ok to.

Details here http://www.retroridesgathering.com/

I try to go every year.
I think the shonky rocket will be there - IIRC camping.
If you want to contact them and ask for a 924 OC stand then that would be great. :smile: It's just dedicated parking in the show field, so it's not like we need any organisation (though maybe we could take one of the club flags this year if we are organised?)!
Cheers
Duncan

Thanks Duncan, if there are enough 924's going to make it worthwhile then I'll contact the organisers and see if we can get our own stand.

If anyone else is interested reply asap so I can sort it out. How would we go about getting some Owners club flags or signs etc?

I recognise your 924, I followed you into Silverstone. I've never been to retro rides before but heard good things from other that go.

There is 3 (maybe 4 with the shonky rocket) going so far, is it worth trying to get a stand?

How would we get the flags, gazebo etc?

The "stands" are basically just reserved parking in the show field. This is last years:

So flags would be good, but it's not a stand in the same way it would be at a normal car show...
Cheers
