Hi all just wondered if there was any meets around the lincolnshire region, or any planned for the future.

Many thanks

Steve

lincolnshire meets/shows are fairly non existent. i also live in lincolnshire and have the same issue. it seems to be a no go area for show organisers. there was one in cleethorpes recently and also one near louth but thats about it. ive started to go to cadwell park a fair bit to watch the racing but as cadwell mainly does bike stuff the cars are not on to often.
as for the club meets theres not really to much to come see/do in lincs so i suppose thats why we dont have any.

My wifes nan lives in chapel st leonards and think there is a fair bit to see.

How about a club meet at East Kirkby?
Aviation Heritage - they do taxi runs in a Lancaster and am sure I have seen they do car stuff there. :)

A Rover car rally and the Lincolnshire MCGG jointly have a show at East Kirkby in July.

There is also a mega car show at Boston that is well attended and over 400 cars were there this year. Next year the club may want to attend this as its free and very good. Various clubs attend every year, Mini, MGCC,Morris Minor, Capri, etc and lots of cars not in any club

I believe there is also the Revesby show on the 1st week of August
There are other shows in the area btw that may want the club to attend

These are all next year off course but with planning it may boost events in Lincolnshire for you and promote the club profile

Thanks for all the info Jeff, appears there are quite a few of us in this area. Might be worth getting a regional show planned for next year.

No probs, if you need more info for next year give me a shout. I don't have a Rover 200/400 though as it's my sons car. I have plenty of others though and all are MG/Rover.

Run by a friend of mine, John Simpson from Practical Classics.
The car show is one of the largest in the area and the club will go well here next year.
Also mentioned in the photo gallery pages is the East Kirkby Mid Lincs Rover Rally and again the club should go down well here.
If you look through the photo galleries you can see that there are lots of events going on in the Lincs area, it's just about finding them

i agree. as much as i like rovers i do like many other makes too, anything from jap to euro. classics are not really my thing but anything from the 60's onwards i dont mind.
theres an annual show in cleethorps organised by a local modified car club which ive been to have a look round most years. lots of different clubs attend such as classic, american but it is mainly modified cars. its only a couple of quid to get into aswell.
