    Howdy all!

    Following the national SCN meet this year at VAG Tuner, everyone was saying that we should get more local meets arranged, and then perhaps a few more national meets. I appreciate that meets aren’t for everyone, and some people are put off because they haven’t modified their car or think their car isn’t worth showing off, but nothing could be further from the truth.

    The meets are for everyone and every Seat, old and new.

    With all this in mind, and with the entire North West to cover, can we get some suggestions on events, locations and dates for meets?

    I personally don’t mind travelling, I’m always looking for an excuse to get on to some good roads and meet like minded people.

    Even if you just reply to say you’re up for a meet (and where you’re from) we can get an idea of numbers and look for something close to everyone interested :)

    I’ll be bringing VCDS with me to any meets too.

    We have a date, time and location for the first meet: Saturday 13th October 2018, Castleton (Peak District), around 11am in one of the various car parks!

    Here is the confirmed list of attendees:
    @paddy6789 (Aaron) - MK3 290 5dD - Alor Blue
    @theoldboy (Ron) MK3 280 5D- White
    @Jimbobcook (Simon) Mk2 Cupra R - Speed Blue
    @Legojon (Jon) MK2 Cupra R - Speed Blue
    @Damo H - (Damo) MK3 280 ST - White
    @Deano j1971 (Dean) MK3 300 - White
    @Ryan_tayl - (Ryan) MK3 TDI FR - White
    @Maypack - (Tony) - MK3 300 5D - Desire Red
    @saveoursouls - () maybe the Mrs as well MK2 TDI - Red
    @JohnnyMackers (John) MK2 Cupra - Red
    @Jamp94 () - MK3 290 ST - White

    other possible if they can confirm otherwise we will assume cant make it.

    @ibizafrSY4 () MK3 300 SC White
    @Chino_UK - () MK4 Ibiza - Red
    @kiddo
    @Gav
    @Yellow fr - MK1 Leon FR - Yellow
    @walshy

    I have some SCN stickers being provided by @Syphon for the day. Every attendee will get one for free, and if you want any more, it's a discounted cost of £3 per sticker :)

    Let’s show those Golf R and Focus RS boys what real cars and real drivers are ;-)

    I could be up for a drive if it isn't 5 years driving from the real Midlands haha what's the point in having a car if you don't drive it in my books...

    Thats right I'm moving out of my local meet area...

    Cheers

    Live in Manchester and work in Bolton so anywhere in a radius works for me.

    Sheffield
    Lancaster
    Cheshire
    Manchester
    Preston
    Blackpool
    Morecomb
    Liverpool
    Birmingham
    Leeds

    My preference would be the Peak District, snake pass and woodhead are a great drive.

    Depends on days for me

    I can be in Blackburn for the day (work) and meet up in the evening (during the week) or do a day run on a weekend.

    Chester is an amazing place! I also like their Miller and Carter steak house.

    Seems a few more people are on the boat @paddy6789 is it worth getting some dates and a location?

    There used to be a VW meet at Blackpool whilst the illuminations are on, good chance to get some ''dazzling'' photos of shiny paintwork
