Big Meet 2016 ideas and suggestions

Post by hounddog » Mon May 04, 2015 4:53 pm

As some of you will know, and some may not, 2015 was our final year at Stafford for the club "Big Meet".

So, we will be looking for a new venue for 2016 , and thought it would be useful to throw this open to the forum and invite suggestions that we can think about in planning for next year.

all ideas and suggestions welcome






[The reason for Stafford ceasing to be available to us is as explained by Wirralman in the Stafford thread and I have copied below for reference, so it is not possible to have a large club presence there any more for a "big meet" ].

"When we first went to Stafford we had a limit imposed on the number of bikes we could have and were allocated showground space that had never been used before. After we had demonstrated that we could act responsibly, we were allocated another larger area but suffered because early non MT arrivals parked their huge campers on our allotted space. The following year after negotiation by Bunker, we then were allocated to the area we had this year.

The show has grown and the organisers can sell the space the club has used for far more that we have been charged whilst generating a bigger attraction to pull in the public. So we will not be offered a plot next year for commercial reasons.

"





Thank you

Blank sheet of paper so to speak, could be a show , doesn't necessarily have to be , just collecting ideas really. We have a few ideas already , BMF show for example, but also interested in other possibilities to think about

A Military show might be a good idea. Preferably one that has tat to buy too.
