Talking the Fiat 126 weekend 2019, 5-7th July

After last year's modest success (which I believe turned out to be the largest gathering of 126s in the UK that year) I'm once again making preparations for a weekend meet-up this summer!

Road runs, camping with our cars, perhaps another treasure hunt, parts market and no doubt seeing the local sights of the Peak District (a vote was held and last year's central location won again).

Click here to see how last year's event went!

It's a book-yourself-in arrangement. If you want to come, simply go to their website or phone them up and book yourself a tent space! If you're really quick there's also some comfy wood cabins.

LOCATION:
Riddings Wood Caravan & Camping Park
Bullock Lane, Riddings, Derbyshire DE55 4BP

TIME:
from late afternoon on Friday 5th July
till late morning of Sunday 7th July
(Saturday is the main day of activities, if you can only attend for a while)

WEBSITE:
Campsite booking
Event page

Once you've booked, I'd appreciate if you could let me know if you're coming! Or better yet, indicate you're attending in the corresponding Facebook event. This helps me anticipate numbers and plan the activities.

hey!

(sorry for the delay there)

No- I don't stay on the island- but I am up regularly to visit my girlfriend.

She works near BayView and had spotted your car and mentioned it to me- I HAD TO take a nosy up there and admire your example!

It's ace- lucky you! Where abouts are you on the island?- I spotted another one on a pile of stuff outside a farm near Birsay; do you know the one I mean..??

Re: the Fiat 126 weekend 2019, 5-7th July

I've lived in Orkney for 3 years, most of which has been in Kirkwall but in the last few months I've moved to Harray in the west. I visit home (central belt Scotland) once a month, so I keep some earplugs in my ash tray for the road trips.

As far as I'm aware, there's only two 126s in Orkney: mine and an aircooled on Sanday, never heard of one in Birsay (tempted to go investigate!)

Hey Xyla-

so you do the commute South in the 126?

r e s p e c t

We should hook-up sometime; I'm next up at the end of June.

I'll attach a picture of the 126 at Birsay now

(sorry- I should point out; it's scrapped; which hasn't stopped me thinking about it!)
