Hello all!

Following feedback from local members we have decided on the location and date of our first post lockdown meeting.

Our meet is booked for 12 noon at the Fox and Goose, Greywell, near Hook RG29 1BY on Saturday 12th September 2020. We have told them provisionally that about a dozen people will attend but we would like to confirm nearer the time. Therefore, please let us know by email to readingsaab@outlook.com if you plan to attend, even if you are a maybe.

The Pub has no additional COVID19 rules beyond government guidance, they expect adequate social distancing and common sense. There are a couple of points to note for our meet:

    We ask that we avoid touching or entering each other's cars without the owner's express permission
    We ask that we avoid crowding around engine bays with our heads in looking at potential faults or shiny parts
    Bringing a mask is advised in case you need it and perhaps nitrile gloves or similar if you plan on being in contact with another member's vehicle
    The group will support and respect any attendees if they wish to take further steps due to COVID19.

There may be a special parking area for us on the day, depending on the weather, our expected numbers and some other factors. If this is the case then we will make this obvious.

Web site for info and directions etc is https://www.foxandgoosehampshire.co.uk/

This venue was chosen as it is most central to the Berks Hants Oxon area from the two options. Feedback about the venue was equally split but several people did not reply so I thought it best to be accessible to as many people as possible. The 12th seemed most convenient for those who responded, although most were quite flexible with that. I will be bringing my Tech II for those who need it with v146 software for modern cars and v44 software for older cars that use Tech II.

I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible there!

Rob Whitby

I would have given this a go, but, it's the same day that the Beds, Bucks, Herts group are meeting at Silverstone...

Sorry Will, I must confess that I didn't check. Have fun!

Not to worry! There wasn’t anything to check. Because of the virus, numbers at the Silverstone Experience are limited, so the event was only publicised within the BBH group and the quota has been filled, I believe.

Still on, yes.

As the new rules are from Monday we are OK in that regard. Extra care regarding distancing is advised though.

:)

I can't control whether the pub has other ideas when we arrive of course but there has been no communication so far.

No worries, hope you feel better soon! We can plug in your 9000 to Tech II another time.
