Is this the Ace Cafe thing?
I was just thinking a similar thing to see if anyone from down here wanted to convoy up there.

I currently working the M4 corridor. J10. I finish at 5pm. Does anyone want to meet up with me there?

razza
14-01-07, 12:52
will be glad to, also pleased to see you now have a supra:d

shall we say meet at Maccy D's at 5 then (same place as Monthly Jap meet on A33, just off from Jnc10)? I'll PM you my number in case there's any problems, if you send me yours as well I can let you know if I may be late (just started new job so may run over, but will plan to get away on time, just don't want to have you sat there without me being able to let you know)

how_supra
14-01-07, 12:53
erm the monthly japmeet isn't that just off Junction 12? :D

razza
14-01-07, 13:17
sorry, was thinking of jnc 11. There's a cinema at jnc 10 at winnersh triangle/lower early, any good? just trying to think of where's a suitable place for meeting....

how_supra
14-01-07, 13:20
Yep I know that cinema thats perfect, its just round the corner from me. I finish at 5, so I can be there for 5:15. :D

razza
14-01-07, 13:23
cool, I'll try to get away at 4:45 to give me plenty of time in rush hour (coming from Theale).

how_supra
14-01-07, 13:32
okie dockey. See you then.

16-01-07, 19:53
Hi guys i wouldnt mind meeting up with you both for the convoy as im not sure what time gaz and ash are leaving for the M3. So you guys are meeting at J10 at the cinema, is that easy to find?? :rolleyes:

razza

postcode for sat nav or www.theaa.com

RG41 5EH


Come off at jnc 10 of M4 down the A329M and off at Early/Winnersh Triangle, follow round to left and cinema is by the massive roundabout with lights, on right hand side, you'll have to loop round to get in, I think (been a while since I 've been there but you'll see where to go once you get there.

shall we say to the back of the cinema? and I'm not on about the back row.....:rolleyes:

If for any reason that's too busy try the left hand side as you look towards it from the front.

how_supra
16-01-07, 20:13
It should be fine that time of night. I will probably be there first, as I work round the corner from that

SilverSoop
16-01-07, 20:15
Well ok then but would it be easy to meet you before that?? I know where im going on the M4 but after that im not too sure. Would it be alright if i could meet you say somewhere just after
J10??

markiemark
18-01-07, 02:52
i might come. if i can find the supra i am after. i know were you are meeting up. so if i buy mine by than i come and say hello. if that is ok with every one. :rolleyes

nice and easy to find. i am in Newbury

razza
18-01-07, 08:38
by all means come on down. sounds like it'll be a decent convey, picking up a few people at different spots on the way.

If you're coming from Newbury you may want to join me at Theale if you're coming that way, let me know, I'm literally just off the junction 12.

Homer
18-01-07, 10:09
Think I'll join you too :)

I was going to go to the meet early and help Lui set up, but can't afford the time off work.

how_supra
18-01-07, 10:25
okay cool. Im going to be on the hardshoulder just off junction 10 then? Is that okay?

Homer
18-01-07, 10:31

Okay, I'm confused (easily done!)

Aren't we all meeting at the cinema at 5ish?

how_supra

No apparently not, though there is no harm in us meeting up there. :D

mr lover
18-01-07, 10:50
i may be coming through about that time, but if i can i will be trying to get there a bit earlier :)

markiemark
18-01-07, 12:24
razz do you have a dark green supra with i think 18inch 5 spokes. if it is you can i say thanks. seeing your car was made me want one. i was umm and erring than i saw yours at junction 12 m4 a few days ago coming out of theale and went yes please.

so if that is you.
thank you for being in that place at that time.

cheers

if i get mine by than ya i meet you first.
know to go and find my supra.:d :d :d :d :d :d :d :d :d

razza
18-01-07, 12:31
Sabrina,

I was still planning to meet up with you guys at the cinema, just picking up a few on the way, why the change in plan? Don't think waiting on the hard shoulder for a convey is the safest idea, especially if the weather's anything like this week....


Mark,

Thanks mate, glad it made you see sense :D

Hopefully see you in your new supra then...

how_supra
18-01-07, 12:32
Oh okay, Im confused then, are you meeting with Silversoop somewhere else then? :D

razza
18-01-07, 12:40
yep, picking him up at where the reading jap meet is usually held on the A33 as he's coming from basingstoke and doesn't know the way to the cinema very well (obviously not a fan of sat nav :p )


Then we'll head down the back route past Shire Hall and Sindlesham mill to the cinema, should only take 15mins hopefully, or if the M4 isn't too bad back up there then down the 329.

I need to pick a mate up at the cinema anyway who's coming along for the ride (trying to convert him to the supra)

how_supra
18-01-07, 12:48
ah cool, thats much better I will be waiting at the cinema then. :D

18-01-07, 15:33
Hi all,

Hopefully I can meet you all at 5pm (depends on work) at Mc D's

MarkieMark, if you get your car before then I'll meet you at Chieveley for a blast down to Reading.

SilverSoop
18-01-07, 20:55
Cool see you all on wednesday! :D

amend as neccessary please guys so we can get to the Ace Cafe quickly and get some good parking spots (am outside:( )

razza
18-01-07, 21:12

From there we can take a short cut thru langley up to the A412 and then onto the A40 to Hanger lane and A406 to the Ace cafe if thats ok with every one. :)

It sort of depends on the traffic
