Can i bring some gibbons?

hullo, my beloved told me that her grandsons would like to come to a car show, they are 9 and 5
i thought the birthday event would be ideal but when babs and me came last year the car was stuffed
i suggested tying them to the roof but she got the hump
so what do you think about the japday event ?, bearing in mind my intention is to have a good few beers the night before in chippenham:confused:

Bringing your family is welcomed, but remember on over night meets things tend to get a little more adult orientated.

Japday is fine if you want to bring children :slight_smile:

Japday will probably be more exciting for the kids/big kids I think, cars screeching around a track etc…

you just need to be aware of the dangers that’s all, if they are left unsupervised and decide to lean on someones car, you could have a bust up to unravell or worst up it’s easy for kids to find dangerous things at car shows. Lots of moving parts, hot things and sharp things to touch.

Gavin’s kids always bring him along , granted we have to supervise him while they go off and play , but @Steven_Smith is his allocated guardian so he looks after him takes him for food etc and stops him getting a kicking from the grown ups .

Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like I will be there this year. Someone will have to put @gavin_naish on a leash and tie him to the wheel of a car.

That was nice of you to ask @andybarb respectful to the Club and members.

Over the years we’ve had lots of kids at various events, some have even grown up in the Club. like Julian’s lad Joseph who was a nipper and now is 19 with his own car, hard to believe for us who met him when he first came to JAE with Dad (Julian).

Kids are always welcome, there’s lots of fun going off which they can join in on, but also lots of drinking at some overnight meets as you know Andy.

All that is needed is that parents respect the ‘adult time’ as you would at home, and we can be one happy GTOUK family.

Maybe I’m a bit old school, but just the way I was brought up, hope this isn’t offensive to anyone with kids.

Tbh the clubs a bit of a family and I know I’ve brought my daughter to one event (although she was only 8months old) I’d have no issue bringing her to any event… So long as she knew to look with her eyes ;-).
Don’t forget Stan!
Both stan and Joseph have even competed for the club at JAE in the inter club competitions and done us proud
