The new meet location is going oldschool

Back to the old quicksave, so aldi on the dudley bypass.

I need to have a chat with you about it mate.
I want the first meet back there to be a quiet one, test the water so to speak.
It might have CCTV and police could come instantly. It could kill of the meets if people get put off.

too right jay - if we all be honest tesco is horse shit

the problem is everyone didnt want to change it incase people lost interest. as i said all along, if we improve the meet by finding a better location, why would anyone lose interest?

glad that we have no alternative to change 2bf

i think our meets get plenty of hype from us aswell as a lot of other guys on forums to not be a wassh if we moved the location.

i think people will be thinking of it more as a new improved location rather than a "shit we've got no option but to move" location....get me.

My only concern was distance from a central location and the ability for a first time attendee to find it. Tescos was a prominent point just of the Bham new road / Wolvo road easy as piss to find. Now with all the road works is there an easy way to get to the location?

So long as we are clear on the distance from Dudley / Birmingham and location / Maps directions and pictures of the location etc Im all down for doing it. Im free a couple of nights so Cus / Dave and a few others if we can do a mini meet, snaps of the location and some of the cars and core members, check out the location im down for that.

But you get all the chavvey Dickheads down there Al for example the knobs on scooters whizzing round pulling wheelies and the divs in corsa's and clios doing hand break turns and wheel spins Not what TOA is all about TBH.

I know what ur saying for location its ideal but comes with all the above problems associated,

No offence Al ..

Tesco wasn't shit for a location, it was well lit and big enough to cope. Aldi isn't as well let but nice enough and easy to find.

i beg to differ....

maybe Aldi isnt the best place but it will be alot better. we needed a carpark dedicated for the meet, not somewhere that still has shoppers milling about

For pictures too, Aldi will be hugely better (light depending) It will be perfect come summer. Actively scout other places in the mean time

I love how the people who came least to the meets are the first to complain about where it was, seriously we had our biggest ever meets there so it was deffo a success.
Aldi in the summer will be spot on. Afterall the only reason we left there was cause it closed and the carpark was taken over by gypo's and diggers.
