Ok so as there have been no car shows yet this year and all you guys down south haven’t had to pay any fuel costs :). How do you fancy doing a car show a little further out?

Someone we know with a Challenger has spent a lot of time trying to convince the committee of the Milton Keynes Rugby Club to hold a show at the Milton Keynes Rugby Club and it has been fully approved so the guy is looking for as many American cars as possible. Post code of venue is MK4 2DN

The show is to be held on the 19th July from 11 am.

I do know that a few people from down your way (including Dawn Gibson with her Red eye) are making the journey so a good convoy for you guys ?

if you are interested the guy has asked for an email to be sent to him at colts@mkrufc.com with the subject Car Show with the year model and colour of your car and he will send all the information

We are planning on going so hope to see some of you there.

Sounds interesting.

Are organised events allowed now, or is this pending on a future announcement from the government?

As far as I am aware it is ok. The committee of the MKRUFC have had numerous meeting and have given it the go ahead. If it wasn’t allowed then surely they wouldn’t have allowed it. I can ask the question if you want?

And the media are definitely scare mongering. They take pictures from angles that make things look bad but actually distancing is being observed.
We have seen a few counter points from locals who say it’s not as the media portray.

But I’m definitely up for it. Being inside is now affecting me and I need to get out. Enjoyment is not even a question!

Ok - I have had a response from the organiser

"At level 3, if everyone is sensible, it will be. There are other shows starting up throughout July which have been cleared. By the time it happens, pubs, restaurants and cinemas will be open, also hairdressers, but no nail bars or tattoo studios..!Basically it is no worse than the retail carpark we met at, or Tesco, or Primark or Ikea in terms of contact, but it is open air. The cars will also be further spaced. Obviously, if anyone in your family is shielding or you suddenly show symptoms you should not attend. It's a fair question, but it wouldn't have been passed by MKRUFC if it couldn't be run and stay in line with regulations. It's why I need to log all the cars..."

Even if shows aren't allowed, is it going to be possible to do the Southsea Cruise again soon as long as people remain in their cars?

I heard that the Chelsea cruise had gone ahead recently and there was also a cruise in Weston Super Mare so I would imagine so :)
