E28's & other 5 series on the hill at Fort Nelson - Saturday 27 May 2017

97 posts in this topic

E28's and other 5 series on the hill at Fort Nelson is on again this year, Saturday 27 May 2017.

 

This year will should be inside the fort on the parade ground.

 

Saturday 27th May 2017 is the day in question with the meeting scheduled between 10:00 to 15:30.

 

We have been granted the use of the parade ground inside the Royal Armouries Museum being allowed to park amongst the big guns where we can meet up and admire each other's cars and which can also provides some great photo opportunities.

 

The museum also has some great views over the Solent and the surrounding areas and best of all entry to the museum is  free - I'm sure some of you will enjoy a look round the fort and its tunnels as well as the large historic collection of guns.  The Fort is open between 10:00 and 17:00.

 

Snows BMW are attending with one of the new G30 5 series.  No longer attending.

 

Owing to access constraints there is a limited time in which to entre the fort between 10:00 and 11:00.  People arriving before 10:00  should muster in the car park to the east of the fort and visitors centre before being guided into the fort.  People arriving after 11:00 should park in the car park to the east of the fort and visitors centre and make there way into the fort via the visitors centre.

 

Once inside the fort we will be parked up as we will be amongst the public displays.

 

There are a series of live firing demonstrations during the afternoon at 11:30, 13:00, 14:00 and 15:00, so we have a series of exit times that will not conflict with these.  Exit times will be a 15 minute window centred around the following times 13:30, 14:30 and clear the parade ground at 15:30.

 

I am intending to arrive by 09:30 and will most likely be wearing something fashionably hi-vis.

 

Address of Royal armouries is:

 

Fort Nelson

Portsdown Hill Road

There is a plan B if there are issues with staff sickness or absence that prevent access to the fort on the day.  We will use the grassy parking area to the north of the visitors centre car park.  We used this area last year and they have promised to cut the grass this year if we have to re-locate.

 

There is a limit to the numbers that we can take inside the fort so if you are intending to attend then please take the time to declare your intentions on this thread.

 

Any questions then please pm me if you are of a shy or retiring personality or post your question onto this thread.

Hi CB,

 

Good to see that you can make it in the little donkey and you have a chaperone too :lol:

 

Be good to finally put a face to a forum handle.

 

8 E28's so far, 4 of which are Eta's.  So far the e's have it the e's have it :P

 

Only 20 more E28's until we reach the target of 28 E28's B)

 

Regards

 

Mick
