Default UK XL Forum Meet and Greet Sunday 1st Oct

Calling all the UK and Europe forum members. I am trying to set up a meet and greet for all the members. This is open to any member of the XL forum and will be held at the Copdock Classic Bike Show on Sunday 1st Oct 2017 at Ipswich Suffolk.
The venue will be open from the Saturday 30th Sept for setting up. There is free camping onsite with washrooms etc. There is a beer tent with real ale and live music for the sat night so you do not have to leave the site. Bikes can be left on the site over night as the grounds have security fences and there is security on site over night. If you do not want to camp there are hotels within 3/4 mile and also in the town, so bikes can be left on the show grounds over night. We have a area which can hold around 25 bikes and we get 10 gate passes free. I will try to hand the passes out to any member who is going to come and place his bike in the show ground, not just the bike park.
So this is your chance to show off your bike to other members and the public and have a fun day to.

Here is a vid of the 2015 show.

I will bump this thread every month for all to see.

I'm not sure about staying overnight, but I'll see if I can come for the day on the Sunday.

It's a fair old trot from my place but you never know.

Or you can just buy another one while you're there ( to add to your collection) but it might be difficult to get used to it, because the handlebars are on the wrong side.

I never miss it - Copdock is the best show in the UK by a long way.

Do you just go for the day Myles, on the Sunday, or do you travel the previous day and stay overnight?
