Just hold your horses lol I've to call up and meet with new centre manager on Monday about this January cars and coffee. Fingers crossed it goes well. He sounded dead on on the phone, just explained he's new at all this and just wants to know what will be happening etc and where will we be using.
If he's not happy, Will have to cancel
Sell him on the point its a good kickback for the centre as people use the coffee shops restaurants and then browse and buy stuff around the centre. Not capable of his job if he thinks anything different
The loud van although very cool, may get peoples backs up
Very positive meeting today with j1. We are now having to use a different carpark due to potential construction near the carpark we would of been using.
More bins will be provided by j1 and we will also be on litter patrol as the litter was brought up and we apolgized profusely and said it shouldn't of happened.
Psni are onboard as well to promote road safety.
More details will be revealed soon enough when I get new updated maps sent to me
Good work @Gemma, fingers crossed one of our guys will be along hopefully with one of our BMW’s to fit in !!
Can I just point out that after the last meet on the 29th Dec there were a couple of Complaints from one of the residents on Ballymena Rd outside Junction one.
The person that made the complaints to Police has done so on many occasions when meets are on at the Centre, please don’t give them any excuse to ring again as it’s only a matter of time before Junction 1 pull the plug and prevent these kind of meets going ahead, if they did this it would be a shame as it’s an ideal venue.
Thanks avo. That's why we asked for the police to attend to stop this kind of behaviour from happening and promote road safety.
Acting the knob is not what we are about. We just wanna get out, have a coffee and enjoy our passion for cars with other enthusiasts.
Hopefully if we comply with everything that j1 asks of us, they will see that Mr complainer is just a moan. We can't stop what's happening outside of the centre
Guys, I have edited the ni bmw events page on fb., suppose I should of said in here too...
Its now 12pm to 3pm to get majority of cars that are attending in before the shops open.
Heck last time it was due to start to 11.30 am and carpark 1 was full by 11.15am lol
We are using the carpark that is Infront/ Beside moes grill (where the pirate mini golf was)
We will have Marshalls on as well and areas coned off to try and keep a flow moving through the centre.
Please park in the spaces properly to make use of the space we have been given
So here's the map. Self explanatory. We are using the carpark in the red box. I have put a X in the space above as that is not actually there YET as a usable carpark (it's where the big machine car wash)
The route highlighted is the route with zero ramps and the best route in.
As said, the PSNI will be there in attendance.
Clic Sargent buckets will be out too. Voluntary donation
Reserved seating in Costa coffee from 12pm to 1pm for anyone who wishes to sit in to have a coffee.
