Sorry for not getting this part of the meet sorted, albeit the MOST important part!!! I am genuinely happy to meet wherever the majority agrees to meet. I think Jeromes suggestion looks and sounds great - so if we can agree on that then im in. Did we find out if its going to be ok to actually take pics at this location?? Or should we just risk it, not ask them and avoid preempting an issue and just turn up??
ps; i just hope i get my car back from BMW in time, otherwise im gonna be very pissed!!

Dorney lake is free, but I went to Woolwich before in my old car, and its one hell of a site for a photoshoot but we need to pay the security off If you guys are tight, then I suggest Dorney lake.

Well, if its just to catch up with old wives tales; then ace cafe is the place but not a place for any good photos at all. Worse thing is you might not be able to even find parking.

Woolwich photoshoot does sound good... agree that ACE Cafe is a nightmare for parking, especially evenings and weekends.

I'm happy to travel where ever... and as I might not be able to swing it with 'er in doors, won't make a preference to the location.

Oh my god - im sure i did a photo shoot and film at that place last year???
Was that a genuine CSL Jerome?? Have to say i really miss mine, great car, great handling and awsome sound track!!
So, can we agree on a location then?? When you say pay off the security - are we talking a beer or a rolex watch??

I think he charges 150, but I will know next week as per last time but maybe can get away with credit crunch prices.

Would prefer Dorney Lake and putting my money towards a nice pub lunch than lining a security guard's pocket to be honest....

Guys, we will jeopardise decent numbers if we don't decide an exact meet location soon! Shall we just say Dorney Lake as we all know where that is!! Looks nice too

OR Ikea at Edmonton is very good since I was there last weekend, and we can get good shots as well this is a failsafe location.

So Paul - what do you think? 9:30 am? Ikea Edmonton?
