Probably too late for this year but a meet in the lake district could be good, plenty routes and not too busy if we choose the right time of year (winter?).
I agree with Gump, MM was very far away for me - and when you consider the numbers involved thats a lot of cars/fuel for what is effectively a short mountain bike run.
If it could be combined with a big race event it might be worthwhile for example the Outsider Music Festival 2009 (very family friendly) http://www.outsiderfestival.co.uk/bike.html
but as that is scheduled for June I think MM would rightfully take priority.
