    Caffeine & Machine Opening - 27 October 2018

    The weekend was their grand opening but they are now open midweek until 11pm. I'd highly recommend stopping by for a coffee or a beer. We're hoping it'll be a unique venue for several meetings next year and I for sure will be heading back.

    AGM at The Stag Redhill - 14 March 2019

    I understand it’s a joint meeting but didn’t realise CL required the entrire room each month. In fairness Dipak could have his 10 minutes before the meeting if necessary although I assume you’d rather not have the meeting at The Stag altogether and that the Club sticks with Stoneleigh or an alternative which is a shame as it’s on all the flyers for 2019 ? Lets hope you all agree with everything else that’s been planned by the Club for next year ?

    AGM at The Stag Redhill - 14 March 2019

    The date was chosen on purpose to conincide with the regular meeting. Do CL book the function room though? Obviously, if they are members of both they would be welcome to attend the meeting, if not they’re part of the wrong Club ?

    AGM at The Stag Redhill - 14 March 2019

    I’ve passed on everyones concerns so we’ll see what the consensus is from everyone else. Remember the Club has more events planned already for 2019, of which details are being published, than in previous years so the focus has been put on these with the statutory AGM being held for members to attend if they choose to. Didn’t realise you all enjoyed Colin’s public speaking so much!

    AGM at The Stag Redhill - 14 March 2019

    The discussion was had that in previous years the Club has struggled to avoid Mother’s Day when choosing to attend the breakfast meeting at Stoneleigh Park (bad planning I suppose) and also for variation it seemed fair to members to hold the AGM at a different venue. Historically the meeting was always held in the evening so we thought it would be a nice change for those who choose to attend. Personally even when at Stoneleigh in March, it’s unusual that we would bring the Lotus for a day trip as 9/10 it’s pretty dull weather and the meeting itself is a formality. For Tash and myself for example an evening is more convenient for this type of meeting and The Stag is easier for us as well. At the end of the day if it doesn’t work this year and members are adement it should be more accessible and made into more of an event then we can move it again... to Caffeine & Machine for example? There’s a lot on next year ?

    Caffeine & Machine Opening - 27 October 2018

    That's what I'm thinking hence tomorrows opening will be a good opportunity to take a look before next year. I would imagine there will be plenty of organised meets at Caffeine and Machine that we could attend and add to the calendar for next year.

  14. Sunday 6 January 2019 Join us for the first Sunday Scramble of the year taking place on 6th January – a great way to clear the head and the engine! Buy Club Member Vehicle Tickets – Tickets for the January Scramble will go on sale in November. Founded in 2014 the Sunday Scramble began as a ‘cars and coffee’ get together amidst the early stages of our restoration works. Four years on and the Sunday Scramble is an event of national repute, attracting enthusiasts from across the UK and Europe, offering the opportunity to explore the former RAF Bicester base, the restored wartime buildings and the specialists businesses based here. Starting with some 100 visitors at the first Scramble in 2014, the event has grown significantly with over 6,000 visitors gathering at Bicester Heritage for the ‘Drive It Day’ Scramble, April 2018. Having been off limits to the public for the best part of one hundred years in the hands of the RAF and MOD, historic vehicle owners and enthusiasts can now drive through the gates to this once hidden location and spend a Sunday morning freely exploring the Technical Site, specialists businesses based here and bring their own vehicles to add to the diverse display of machinery that makes this event so spectacular.
