Kilkenny Feb meet (or suggestions) 8 Years, 7 Months ago Karma: 213
UPDATE: The meet will be at 'the dome' (Carlow) www.dome.ie on Sunday at 12noon. There may be people meeting up at other places along the way, but I recommend you get the map details from Page 3 of this thread. Preperation is key - do it now!!


Okay, I am tied up for a few weeks in a row in Feb, so I won't be able to make this meet myself. So, I am suggesting a meet where some of the southerly members can get along to.

With V-day being on the second Sunday, I'll throw out the first Sunday, 7th Feb and Kilkenny as a suggestion ?

hi Spidey,

I'm a little snookered for the first few months working on a thesis so I can't really commit. If it turns out I can make it I will, but probably wouldn't know until the last minute.

If you're suffering from lag, you're either in the wrong gear or the wrong car!

Might come along to this one if we get a few cars interested up our way.

I have stuck an announcement on the OC to see if there is any interest.

If we are heading down then will probably be interested in stopping around Dub for some breakfast so we could use that as a meeting point with any Dub based members that are heading to Kilkenny.

Hey Spidey, I'm guessing people won't mind delaying it a week or two until you can make it also...

I was thinking about that but then we're getting close to the March run - so, we might end up getting low numbers for both.

For myself - if Kilkenny was on Sunday 21st, I could go. End of Feb would also mean that we get that bit more daylight and hopefully a few degres warmer !!

I'd say date-wise, its best to leave it at Sunday 7th Feb. If we moved it to Sunday 21st, it'd be getting near the March run to Fermanagh and we'd have people choosing one or the other and maybe get low numbers for both.

But we don't seem to be getting numbers - I think we have a decent few members down South Leinster/Munster but none putting their names down for the run

I'm hoping to have my car back for the 7th and would like to nominate McDonalds in Kilkenny for a mini meet. Give our more southern located members a chance to meet up.

Out of interest Quandry, what time would you be leaving Dublin at?

My 2 is in for its MOT on Thursday but I am not expeting anything to crop up (famous last words) so I am still thinking of exercising the tubby for a run to Kilkenny but I am try to gauge just how long a day it might be.

Cheers

Hi mate don't know actually. I was thinking about taking a drive around Kilkenny tomorrow to find a good spot to meet at pre-requisites would be coffee and a big car park

I might know more after that so I'll post up in here. Would be good to meet you though and see your 2 in person Your avatar makes it look like it's tip top anyways

Cheers Q

Its even better now that I got some bits re-sprayed and the stereo set-up properly

Kilkenny is about a 350 miles round trip for me plus whatever else we do while there but I would still be up for the run if my car is legal and the weather is half decent

Well it will be legal down here.. they don't recognise the MOT

Loving the colour of your 2! I could never change mine from what it is but if I got another I would want it to be that blue!

Not insured come midnight on Friday if it fails but I should be fine, just need to get a slight seize on the front brakes sorted, everything else is sorted as I have put new Mr T springs and shocks in, recon'd gearbox and new clutch in the last year as well as the paintwork and stereo ... busy year.

I agree about the colour - the car wasn't perfect when I got it but I love that colour

The last time I was down there we went to that kart track, its miles away from Kilkenny and hard to find up back road. But hopefully some local MR2 heads will guide the way.

Car parking is premium stuff in Kilkenny. The hotel on the Castlecomer road www.irelandhotels.com/kilkenny-hotels/newpark-hotel would be my suggestion to you.

Also this would be the best road to drive home on Not as busy and more twisty.

Well guys I went for a drive to Kilkenny today. Ray is right it's sort of hard to find any parking around there. We went to the Newpark hotel and it does have car parking, and also a carvery which was good - but costly at 14eur a head..

The only other thing I could find around was the dome.

_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG

Which has 10pin bowling, video games, a big carpark (which you can see easilly from the building), but they are in Carlow...

So for interested parties, let me know what you would prefer..
