Re: G-Wagon 40th Anniversary at Mercedes Brooklands

Very well done Gooch.  Thouroughly enjoyed the day in spite of having to use the ML.  I am giving our discussion a lot of thought and will be in touch soon.

Re: G-Wagon 40th Anniversary at Mercedes Brooklands

Same.  Great to meet G fans and hear all their experience and stories with Gs, and see so many examples in one place, old to new, short to long, petrol to diesel (and even LPG I think) - all have great road appeal.  An annual (or ad hoc) attempt at further meets should follow more easily.

Very well done Gooch.  A very friendly gathering with more G Wagens in one place than I have seen for a long time. This has to be done more often.

Photos look amazing, really sad to not have been able to make it. Well done on organising Gooch, these things take a lot of time so its really appreciated. 

My partner and me run a small German bar in north Milton keynes and would love to host a meet up if anyone is interested?

The MK biergarten in wolverton, http://www.mkbiergarten.co.uk/ the facebook is probably a little more up to date.

Re: G-Wagon 40th Anniversary at Mercedes Brooklands

the facebook.  Love it.

A G meet and convoy there one Saturday might book the cafe takings as well and be a nice trip out.  I'd love a bratwurst.

Pick a date and circulate for suitability.  Good for a early pm timeslot maybe.

Re: G-Wagon 40th Anniversary at Mercedes Brooklands

To me, the important thing is, what's the parking situation?

Re: G-Wagon 40th Anniversary at Mercedes Brooklands

Looks like parking is plentiful either side of the Bar, but not in the complex itself?  Tesco car park one side, Wolverton Station car part the other.

And its a bar not a Cafe, sorry.  But if we planned a Saturday, they do hot pretzels!  It would be a short meet because one could only sample one or 2 biers if driving, so should have something on tap, like coffee??  Over to you.

Re: G-Wagon 40th Anniversary at Mercedes Brooklands

we have a streetfood van every other friday evening if you want food, next one is the 28th July and is jamacian curry i think...

We do coffee and tea every day and pretzels on a saturday, no bratwurts i'm affraid though unless you get the right streetfood evening. There is a very good tapas restaurant two doors down called Cafe Ole. 

Parking is plentiful around the shop. Dont use tesco, its a short walk, but to drive you go all the way round, its a bit awkward as there is a railway line inbetween. 

for dates how about:

  • friday 28th June
  • Saturday 29th June
  • Saturday 13th June

Any takers? First round is on me :-)

Re: G-Wagon 40th Anniversary at Mercedes Brooklands

Sorry I am late with this but would like to add my thanks to Gooch for organising the MB World G-Day.

A great opportunity to meet and catch up with other G-Owners and share info and war-stories, much appreciated.

Hope to see you all again soon.

Best wishes to all

Re: G-Wagon 40th Anniversary at Mercedes Brooklands

niblett..  next weekend is a bit too soon. Happy to try Sat 13th July.  That works for me and a trip to Wolverton.  It sounds like there are a few parking spots around, a canal round the back and a park across the road (if anyone has dogs to walk!)

Late pm sound OK....?   say 4pm.   

Saturday 13th July, 4pm,  MK Biergarten, Wolverton.

A Beer/Drink and Pretzel or whatever you have for sale.  I'm sure a handful might make it, even though this site is not the most visited anymore.  I'll decide which G to bring later.  The 350Cdi is more modern and economical than the 230GE

Re: G-Wagon 40th Anniversary at Mercedes Brooklands

On the back of this successful meet, and the discussions held there about GWOA future.

There will be an EGM (concall) on Sunday 30th June 2019, at 7pm  (UK)

Please see http://gwoa.co.uk/content/club-where-are-we#comment-88263 

Would love to have you all on the proposed EGM call.  Lets get this rolling and elect a new working Committee for GWOA. 

The separate GWOA Limited Company can then be addressed, before it is struck off the Companies House Register.

Regards

Although I keep bashing the screen - sometimes quite hard - it still comes up as "Access denied". We'll not be able to join you BUT we will be thinking of you and wishing you all well. There are so many good folk out there, with so much knowledge. All power to ye!
