Thanks to everyone who came along today. A special thanks to the weather that allowed us (just) to have the BBQ without getting soaked.

Here are my pics - not too many unfortunately. I will post Alan's pics (the guy on the motorbike) tomorrow when I get them off him.

Post up any you may have got as well as any video clips you have taken

Spanky, a massive thanks for organising this, was a great day. Thoroughly enjoyed the run, the BBQ, meeting everyone, seeing all the cars etc. Was a fantastic selection of cars and probably the biggest/best meet I have been to, to date.

Great pics also, ill get mine up later hopefully. KC+1 for you mate!!

Regarding the knobend - I got in touch the MR2OC admin as soon as I got home with the recommendation that I ban him from meets. As of last night I issued the ban to him stating that it extended to all MR2OC events in the UK and Ireland. The admin of the MR2OC have went one step further and banned him from the site for life and deleted his account.

Behaviour like this will only ever have one result at meets organised by me. I am not interested in second chances. I think it is only good fortune that nothing disastrous happened as I am convinced he was not in control of his car as he thought.

The quote below is from a post I have just made on the OC explaining the stance on this.



At a recent meet, one of the attendees thought it appropriate to perform a number of donuts in a public car park in very close proximity to other cars as well as other 2's attending the meet.

This sort of behaviour is in direct contravention of the rules of this club and the specific rules governing Northern Ireland meets.

For this reason the member concerned was initially banned from all MR2OC meets throughout the UK and Ireland (by me), closely followed by his account on MR2OC being deleted by the administrator team.

These repercussions should be expected by anyone who thinks that an MR2OC meet is a suitable opportunity for show boating, putting members and by-standers at risk, as well as potentially ruining the image of this club and getting event organisers in trouble with the law.

If this is your style of driving or you feel that this is acceptable behaviour, then I would ask that you stay away from any Irish events, or any other MR2OC event for that matter. Feel free to do whatever you want in your own time but events organised by the reps on this site are for those who want to safely enjoy themselves, their cars and each others company.

Good call Mark, behind you 110% on that. Only gives us all a bad name, not to mention pebble dashed cars

If people want to get on like that then they can do it by all means in a safe controlled environment, not in a public carpark on a Sunday afternoon in full view of young families.

Re:2nd Annual Coast run & bbq 2B FEATURED IN MR2ONLY 8 Years, 3 Months ago Karma: 148
I didnt actually see this as it happened before I got to that car park, but I heard that one or two people were hit by flying stones and some members had to move their cars, also because of flying stones. Thats pretty bad alright, damaging members cars, I sure would have been p1552d off if someone sprayed my car in stones. I could see several members were clearly very annoyed.
Considering all of the effort you made to go to the police to get permission and organise this meet/run officially, I can understand your frustration, as behaviour like this could come back on you personally and the club's and we may not be allowed to have such events again in the future if we are deemed to be a danger to the public and so on.
Therefore I cant argue with your decision and believe you did the right thing.

The club/s in general seem to be a slightly older, more mature crowd, people who are MR2 ENTHUSIASTS. An serious enthusiast wouldnt act like that, they would be more concerned with the car, and not interested in thrashing it or damaging others cars in the process.

Good on ya, order in court!

cheers guys

As I have just posted on the OC ... zero tolerance is the only way. Everyone should have good time and enjoy themselves BUT act like a tw4t - you deserve to cut off.
