    Ideas for Jaguar meet event 2017

    Hi all,
    well the Crieff event went very well I thought, most seemed to have a great day as far as I can tell, see details again here.....http://www.jaguarforum.com/showthread.php?t=89174

    The impromptu quickly put together "Highest pub in England meet" last week for XJ X350/X358 only was also a success, although on a smaller scale of course, see here....http://www.jaguarforum.com/showthread.php?t=92509

    I'm thinking / considering putting something together for next year, maybe something a little different.

    Maybe we could look to change locations and do something different? I'll get my thinking cap on....
    It had crossed my mind though about checking out the "Northcoast 500"

    It's 500 miles of North Scottish coastline, some stunning scenery and great driving roads too. I'm wondering if it's something we could cover in say 3 days / 2 nights and make a weekend of it.
    Essentially looking at an extended meet with a much larger driving portion for the event, after all we're a Jaguar forum and Jags are for driving.

    I could still look to see what sponsors I could get for the event and or check out possible accommodation ( of course checking around and looking for discounts and or the best places to stay )
    Just thinking out loud, maybe from the Friday to the Sunday inclusive?
    Come on your own and or bring partners etc, the more the merrier. A nice Jaguar convoy heading through the Scottish Highlands would be pretty cool.

    The idea sounds great in my head, but unsure of the logistics of it and or who / how many may be interested in something like this?

    Depending on when it is, Jim, I'd be up for the 500..
    Was thinking to do it at some stage in any case, but would be great with a decent group of cars & people
    If you'd like me to help with a bit research or something, please let me know. I think there's a lot of info on the web already, but it takes time to filter it all out...

    If the 500 turns out impractical or undesirable, I'm keen to join a few more meets in future in any case.

    All the best
    Simon.

    Previous history, with red wheel of doom on page 1!
    Recent history - the, erm, "Tibbles" thread.

    Still wafting

    Thanks Simon, good to hear from you and appreciate your enthusiasm.

    The NC500 may turn out to be impractical, but one helluva Jag meet / convoy run it'd be!!!!
    Time will tell, we'll see I guess, either way it's definitely on my bucket list

    As far as this or any other meets go, I have a listing first and foremost of those who have either attended previous meets, and or expressed an interest. These guys ( such as yourself ) will automatically be notified either by text / pm or email with the suggestion / invite and we'll build from there.

    Thanks

    From England and Wales is a 9 hour drive, probably 12 with meals etc, so those would need an additional day to travel there and another for the return
