How many people are going to the Bonhams Auction on Sat 13th and then the Concours at Blenheim on Sun 14th?  And of those, how many want to stay over somewhere near Blenheim on the Saturday night?

I fancy making a bit of an ‘Aston weekend’ of it, and would love to meet up with other Astonites at a local hostelry for a beer and a chat (and gazing at a line of Astons parked in the evening sunshine?!!).

Anyone else interest in meeting up?

Hi Rick,

As you know I think this is a great idea to meet up.  I'll be at the Bonhams auction on the 13th, but really not sure I'll be able to make the concours.  We'll certainly meet up on the 13th.

I live 20 mins away from NP. My drive is set away from the road and can park 10 plus cars, it would make a lovely photo only problem is it's 20 mins in the wrong direction if you are coming north or sounth M1, and I want to get to the auction fairly early for a really good look round.

I am leaving my house at 10 am, alternatively can meet in the car park. If you want to exchange numbers then message me direct using this website (my direct email is down atm so I am not receiving/sending anything).

Hi Dwarf,

thanks for the offer, but last year they had plenty of car pakring dotted around the place- in the Aston car park (early starters...) and also in the car park of the local offices. It was quite fun to go walking and see the odd Aston parked down a side street!

I look forward to seeing you there. Last year it took ages to get through all the stuff and get to the interesting cars. Plenty of time to have a nose around, go for a pub lunch (anyone else?) and come back.

I'm going to the auction, but would attend both if I could.  The concours is as much about the location as the event, so I welcome the change to Blenheim after a number of years at Waddesdon.

Don't know if I'll be in the DB6 volante or the DBS V8, will depend on the weather.  For the sake of my marriage, will most definitely not be bidding on anything!

WilliamP, I wasnt offering to 'keep' your astons whilst you are at auction, dunno though,, I could be tempted to car park duty.

Was thinking moreso of meeting at mine and driving convey from there, bit of a round trip though as most of you will come past NP to get to me, so guess I will meet you there, and yes there was plenty of parking.
