Bad news, but not really surprised. Have to cancel the hotel. Real shame as it’s the highlight of mine and Gavin’s sons year. Here’s to next year, let’s just hope Santa Pod can survive financially in the meantime.
Hopefully the 7 tickets I bought, and will leave in their coffers for next year, will go some way towards keeping them going... :?

The 31st July has been replaced with MOCGB. Shame we can’t have a 1 day event like that, if we kept the numbers below 500.

That was a re-booking that had been planned for many months.

The "Big Hitters" will be queuing up for "Test and Tune" days.....

Pity we couldn’t all still meet up responsibly on the Sunday for a get together with the cars as restrictions will no doubt be eased dramatically by the end of July, just an idea?

Great idea! Cruise to Brighton anyone?

Not sure of the majority of peoples geographies but would need a larger free open space ideally with no permissions required.

I'm sure most people would be happy to travel for a get together..

Traditionally, around 60% of the membership resides in Surrey, Hampshire, etc.... things may have changed a bit since we opened up the membership....

Very sad news, the family all look forward to Euronats, we've been attending for years.

We are where we are tho', so what about trying to get something positive out of the cancellation?

What about making up some special merchandise for the 'Euronats that never was' - it would have some rarity value in future years and it could raise some money for the club or a good cause etc.

Just a thought.

That is really the call of the "Mopar Euronats" Committee, not the MMA; so it is down to them regarding which Official Merchandise they would wish to produce and market. Cheers. Pete.

Agreed, but since Tony O has contributed to this thread he might see it?

Very sad that the nats is a no go, its our groups must go to event, I am glad I have so much to do it gives me another weeks work around here, as that's the amount of time a dedicate to the event, I bet it all gets lifted mid October when the weather is Bananarama!

I'd be up for a Brighton run if some more of you fancy it?
