Regular DLOC Meetings cancelled

I presume that ALL meetings everywhere are, for the foreseeable future, "closed" ?

Obviously meeting inside a pub is banned, but so is driving for unessential reasons. If restrictions are relaxed for a few weeks (as anticipated to allow the virus peaks to climb and subside but never exceed the NHS capabilities), why not have a rally instead? Just meet at the normal place and shout from one car to another and have a pleasant drive in the summer, (or meet in a pub garden keeping well apart, not very recommended I think).

On Saturday I was just leaving my gate with the Dart when seven or eight supercars sped by. I was tempted to follow them on their rally or to their meeting place but by the time I had got out of the gate they had vanished.

Right now I'm watching the PM and two others giving a briefing well within two metres of each other and a view of the journalists showed them sitting less than 1 metre apart!
