yes i know but its 15 miles away and we wanted one a bit more local to us also ive gone to a few in the last couple of months and im yet to meet bangbus at the meeting . we thought perhaps in the daylight instead of in the dark on a car park.

It's fair I think to say that in the early days ( 2005 /2007) that we had a smaller membership, so regional meets did mean someone having to drive a bit. Even the "3 counties meet " which I set up meant I had to drive 15miles myself. We had guys drive 80 mile round trips to that. With visitors travelling from much, much, further afield.

As time has passed, some of the older meets have had much less attendance and more smaller meets have sprung up. All of which actually seem to do well initially, then often attendance drops.
Regional meets were very much that,regional, not one in every town.

Please bear in mind too that it is not neccesary for the guy who puts the dates up to attend if they can't. In Rob's case he runs his own business and has a young family. Last month he had to be in North Wales as organiser of Vansurf, to set up and meet n greet from the thursday afternoon.

The attendance is whoever goes.

It will always be difficult to get people to agree on a day or time. Many who may otherwise go, wont go at night as it's dark. Or, wont go at weekends, as frankly they are probably doing what it was they bought their van for in the first place.
I can't get to as many as maybe I'd like, tghese days myself, but will stick with the meet at Bridgnorth for now. Although attendance seems to drop partly in the darker months, but also because of other meets.


Good luck though T:

cheers bigcat i thought it would be a good idea we already tried to start a meet ( BLACK COUNTRY MEET)great 1st one 13 vans then after that was unable to agree a meet point and a date and time .just thought the local lads IN wolverhampton may be able to make it one saturday afternoon . but we wouldnt arrange A Meet when vw shows are on. as for rob have spoken to him via pm but never met him . we all have times when we cant get to the meets.
