Talking Next Yorkshire Meet - Longest Day Whitby Fish n'chip run - Thu 21st June

MEET REPORT AND PHOTOS

Thanks to all who made it for the "Longest Day Whitby Run" on Thursday.
I think I speak for everyone in saying it was a great evening of driving, suberb weather , friendly social element and a tasty meal too of locally landed fish !
The award for the longest distance travelled goes to Dave and Grace from Grange over sands ( Nr Lancaster) who drove the breadth of the country to attend. Dave has owned his S for 9 yrs from new yet never driven with other S's and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. He is now in the process of joining S2UK!
Now we need to think of another Yorkshire event !

Photos below give a flavour of the evening -


Arrival at Whitby Harbour.

Local cod and haddock proving popular!

Sounds great but I don't think I would make those tight timelines. Its an 1hr 15min to the first rendez-vous point for me, not taking into account rush hour traffic on M62. To try make the 6:30pm deadline would be a stretch for me. So I don't think I could make it from work (Leeds) back home to Bradford and then out again for 6:30pm.
Might have to miss this one...

Exclamation Yorkshire Meet, Whitby Run - Revised Times

I appreciated that timings are a little tight when planning this event, with an early start and this may be putting some potential attendees off. However !! Trenchers restaurant which has an excellent location by the Marina have agreed to offer last orders at 8.30pm. This means all timings can be delayed by half an hour - either join at the start point (now 7pm) or arranged rendez vous.

Allocated parking will be arranged in the Co-operative car park just opposite the restaurant.

Route will pass over the Eastern edge of the Yorkshire Wolds before crossing Vale of York and up onto the Moors towards Whitby.

7 cars attending so far but with revised timings some of the 17 interested will hopefully make it. Please update me via this forum rather than that sprawling mess called Facebook !!

Thanks, Ian

Hi H10NDR
Understand your problem. See re arranged timings, hopefully this will make it a goer!

Either see you at YO43 3PN or perhaps Malton rendezvous (Eden Camp entrance A64/A169 jct) ?

Hi Mick
No Problem to make Malton rendezvouz at Eden Camp entrance (A64/A169 jct). Will avoid stopping in town and perhaps be quicker and easier to find for any joining at Malton.
Looks like 7 cars so far but sure it will be more.

Ian
PS - looks like drinks on you!
