Is Midland Split Bus Meet still going - when is it?

Post by ernie »

hi all,

I seem to remember that the Midland Split Bus meet was on at Toys R Us Island, Oldbury, B'ham on the first Tuesday of the month.

Think it may have been organised by Daz Yip.

Anybody know if this is still going & whether it is actually the first Tuesday of the month?

Thanks,
Ade.

Thanx Dougie.

We need a decent VW meet in the Midlands - there are plenty of us around here!

Not sure what went wrong with the Midlands meet, it was good while it lasted, but working shifts I didn't get there as often as I would have liked. The few times I went there was always a good turnout and I'm sure there was even a bloke from Ross on Wye who would make it...

There was a few of us from R on W and Gloucester that made it a few times....me, Pye1man and Corner Window to name a few :D Twas a good meet....
Come on Bondo and Yippy....would be good to get it going again. With a big emphasis on it being an Aircooled meet only :wink: :D
Packed a few belongings and headed out to Pirates Cove. In my buddy’s old grey Kombi we rolled until the gas got low.....
