Places too high key make parking a challenge and sometimes annoys the locals.  Bare in mind this is a club meet, so best behaviour required - no illegal activities (including skids etc) please.

See you guys there :)

Um I'll be at the drags anyway but probably not best to just rock up if you don't want cops to turn up (don't want to give the club a bad name)

No way we're going to the boyracer gathering down there, unkeen to associate with that.  A couple of weeks ago I was dropping a friend off home in Petone and came around a corner to find myself got caught in a checkpoint near Melling and had to wait for like 20 minutes to get my car checked because it looked like something similar to all the other things that were there.  The cop (I don't blame him, knowing there is no way he'd know who was caught up there for what reason) was being a c*nt about and and afterwards I was very very unimpressed, especially at some of the shxt I had to watch/listen to when I was trapped in said line.

If you have any self respect, don't go down there - if you want to see or participate in drags... support the Masterton Motorplex project so we can end up with a proper local venue and go and thrash our cars regularly in a safe and legal environment where you actually get times and get to really open the cars up.  Those "drags" you speak of is an embarrassment and it ruins the car-scene's image, and as such ruins it for anyone into cars who aren't knuckle draggers and just generally does nobody any favours.

Sorry about the rant, its been building pressure.
