    OcUK HQ Motors Meet Take 3 - Cars, Computers & Cosplay - Saturday 15th September 2018

    Hi all,

    After the huge success of the last one, @Gibbo has signed off on another OcUK HQ meet - so that means we've got to make it bigger than before right? The last event went brilliantly with some amazing cars showing up, and some great laps being put in on the simulators!



    The aim is to have 200 cars this time out, so tell a friend to tell a friend to come on down. Please be sure to post on other forums and share the links here - All cars and clubs welcome!

    So get your names down! Please be sure to let me know what car you will be attending in also!

    So what's new this time out?

    ASUS ROGBUS
    The Asus Republic of Gamers Bus will be in attendance! What's a ROGBUS? Well simple, it's a bus kitted out with gaming machines, laptops and components on display and full demos available!

    For more information please check out their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pg/ROGBusUK/

    Woodfire Pizza Company
    OcUK will be bringing in the Woodfire Pizza company to take care of all the hungry petrolheads and gamers on the day!

    Ice cream van
    What's a car meet without pizza and ice cream right?

    Cosplay Models and Gamers
    Not too sure who wants to see the gamers, but there will be Cosplay models doing the rounds throughout the day :D - more information to follow.

    Meet 8 Pack
    You'll all no doubt be aware of some of the amazing builds that 8 Pack puts out for OcUK, so the opportunity to meet and speak with 8 Pack will be taking place. Some live overclocking and benchmarking will also be taking place!

    Discounts & Sales Products
    Details of products to be reduced and on sale for in-store ONLY bargains to be announced. You won't see these deals replicated online or anywhere else. You have to be at the store to take advantage!

    And some more to be announced with OcUK partners as the date gets closer!

    The usual stuff :D
    - The OcUK Motors Meet in the OcUK HQ car park
    - Passenger rides in willing Motors member's cars
    - Show and shine - awards for the cleanest and the dirtiest cars will be available - We will actually be sure to follow up on this one this time!
    - Autobrite are returning with their fully kitted out van along to demo their products and have them available for sale. Pick up anything from your micro fibre products, to foam lances, shampoos etc.
    - Other PC systems available on the day for attendees to play an assortment of the latest games

    OCUK Racing Motors simulator Challenge
    - Car and circuit to be decided on the day to prevent 100s of practice laps :p
    - Fastest lap time wins a Noble Chair (model to be confirmed)
    - Slowest lap time wins the opportunity to wash a member's wheels in the car park :D The member who sets the fastest lap gets to choose the wheels which require cleaning

    Hopefully this again ticks a few boxes for many on the OcUK Motors forum - but if you feel there is something that could be done to further enhance the day, please post something constructive.

    Meet details:

    Time:
    Between 10:00-16:00
    There is no fixed time to arrive for this meet, this is an all day meet so feel free to attend any time between 10am and 4pm, staying for as long as you like.

    Location:

    Overclockers UK
    Newcastle-Under-Lyme
    Staffordshire
    ST5 9BT

    Extra information to keep in mind during the day:
    Toilets: Though OcUK has rest rooms they are not for general public (insurance) as such we advise using Morrisons opposite.
    Food: OcUK will supply snacks and beverages. Those seeking other food, morrisons opposite, fish and chips top of road, subway also, KFC and McDonalds too.
    Discounts: Discounts on all hardware, anyone wanting a graphics card I will operate a strict policy of OcUK cost plus 10% margin, happy to show our cost on the day to any real potential buyer who wants a card for gaming.
    OcUK car park: Is huge, can easily accomodate 100+ cars, however strictly no driving fast, donuts etc.
    Tour: Anyone who would like a tour of OcUK's internal operation just ask a member of staff and they shall take small groups around.

    In order to help guide people who never being to OcUK HQ before I've put my paintbrush skills to hand and done a parking layout people need to follow, there shall be marshals present on the event to guide people as it is important customers have a parking area near the door for carrying goods for example.

    To summarise directions to OcUK for those exiting A500 / M6 using postcode ST5 9EN or ST5 9BT will both get you to Milehouse Lane.
    - Coming from North, you will pass McDonalds on your left, then a Starbucks coffee on your right, also watch out for the 40mph gatso, at roundabout 3rd exit pass subway. Coming from South you will pass a KFC on your left, then a Pizza hut and reach subway on your left. First exit!
    - Reach a roundabout, on this roundabout is a Subway and Buffet Island (now closed and boarded up). Drive downhill pass subway.
    - At the bottom of the road is a Morrisons, at those lights turn left for Morrisons (toilettes, snacks) or turn right for OcUK and you are then on our industrial estate, the first left DO NOT ENTER, the second left is your parking area. :)

    [​IMG]

    Turn in and park in the appropiate zone, we shall have two forum members marshalling the event along with staff to direct people or if need be remove people. :)

    So get your name down for what should be a decent day! Please be sure to state your car's make and model.

    Fixed it. ;)

    We are hoping to make the H2H simulators three at a time, to make it spicier.
    Also if all goes well we hope to have a full motion F1 simulator on-site too for everyone to try out, but to be confirmed.
