Default Regular Midlands meet - Caffein & Machine

Iíve been going to C&M regularly now and always have an awesome time due to the calibre of the ever-evolving car park. I went yesterday and parked my 850R next to itís ancestor. It got me thinking, why donít we have a bi-monthly/quarterly get together for those of us in the Midlands? All Volvoís welcome of course (particularly 850ís).

Itís an awesome informal location to meet and chat to like minded people, which allows social distancing measures followed. It made me feel really good as Iíd not been to a Ďcar eventí for months (it wasnít even a car event).

This may already be happening but Iím not aware of it as Iím not on Facebook. Thoughts? Ideas? It would be something Iíd look forward to

It's on my doorstep, but won't be coming if they are still charging £10 to park your car there! Absolute nonsense!
