  1. Preparations are now well underway for the Mike Stripe Cotswold Weekend, but don't forget only one month remaining until the booking deadline February 28th. All the double rooms are now allocated but twin (& single) rooms are still available. Please ask via this forum should you need any more information. Picture below is the Tithe Barn Bar:-
  2. Thank you to all who joined in at The Stag for our 2018 Christmas meal last night, good food, great company! Chris, Lynn, Marie & Adrian

  4. Kathryn/Andy. As we are still in the early stages of confirmed bookings we need to check with RUA on their return in the New Year. The deal we have with the RUA is based on a number of guests staying over night and the number of booked meals, they are catering for as a club event, bit like a wedding reception. But to clarify Andy’s specific point, all meals will have to be booked and paid for in advance. Happy New Year! Adrian
  5. Hi Kathryn, Thank you for your interest in this year's Mike Stripe Event, does your question relate to joining us just for the drives, or for the entire daytime programme including breakfast and dinner? Adrian
  6. Well done Mark, makes a good header for an on-line petition!
  7. It's a joint booking. The two Clubs meet every month at the same time, not sure how many belong to both clubs. Club Lotus usually have "the floor" first followed by LDC. We would have to negotiate with Dipak (Area Leader) that CL could not have their meeting that month?!? Not sure how I would feel if Dipak told me that LDC could not have their usual monthly meeting?
  8. And, as this date is the 2nd Thursday of the month, Club Lotus will be at The Stag as usual for the regular joint meeting! I think The Stag has only one function room?
  9. Eddie, I see that this appears to be a very popular choice by a few others, a quote from the Caffeine online chatter:-
  10. Hi Graham, Neil & The Guru! There is also the other Midlands Area Meeting (Area 2), 2nd Thursday of every month around 8pm or earlier if you want the Lotus beer, fish & chips for £10 at The Stag at Redhill, Alcester B49 6NQ. I know it's about 75 minutes from MK14 area. We try & have guest speakers, this month we have Malcolm Ricketts (11th October) and we plan a Christmas Dinner meeting on 10th January. I send out an email to the regular attendees, if you want to receive this email send me a private message with your email address. Adrian
  11. We are pleased to announce that Malcolm & Gill Ricketts have kindly accepted our invitation to "talk Lotus" at our next area meeting at The Stag, Alcester B49 6NQ, on Thursday 11 October, 8pm. Beer, fish & chips for £10 as usual (gluten free option available) but if you intend to eat please arrive nearer 7pm. Please let us know if you going to attend so we have a rough idea on numbers. Look forward to seeing you!
  12. In addition to Fish & Chips, this month we have a guest speaker, Terry Giles, who has owned his Lotus 7 S1 since 1974 and featured in Classic & Sports Car magazine. An informal presentation and slide show on the history & restoration of TVB 350 but we hope Terry will arrive in the Lotus.
