For all those who couldn't make it for one reason or another...

A really good day out, even Lin enjoyed herself - must be something to do with the fact that she got to meet everyone when handing out the badges.
Counting the couple that left early and a few late comers I reckon we had a good count of 43 MX6's, 626's, Xedos6's and Probe's show up.

We all spent at least an hour looking at each others cars and chatting. Matt (FPOC, "Sgt C") spent most of the time polishing (of course...) Then we gradually drifted off into the pub for lunch as hunger set in.

Not much modding going on that could be seen, except that one Probe now has it's intake fitted. Oh, and Mike and I have now fitted shiny Tesco Chutney pots and I've got a new oil cap (thanks Mike).

I tried my best to organise a cruise through the forest later, and plenty of people said they were up for it. But in the end no-one else joined in, so it was down to the Mazdas - just 6 of us! Still, I wouldn't have liked to keep track of 30 odd cars through some of those roads...

Anyway, my pics are here: http://homepage.ntlworld.com/ken.holland/WhiteBuck.htm

Thanks to all those who turned up and made it a success.

Well

You lot seemed to have a great down in the woods, i'm glad someone kept ken's transmitter on so he didn't get lost in them :).

Our little Crail meet went good as well, and Shooter (nice guy from the Porbe board) i think was a very happy bunny as he broke the 16 mark every time on his runs, and now feels that all his hard work on his car has paid off (nice one Stuart :) ).

As for our runs well the less said the better :), as we didn't want to do many 5 in total and didn't even bother to get the timeslips, due to a certain person wishing we would install a rev limiter onto the car before we went.


Andy
PS
we did film a lot fo this but how it turns out is a diff matter :eek:

anyway as Ken said, back to the thread

just to say i have organised a successful event before for a RR and just to say it is stressful enough and takes up alot of that persons personal time and efforts to make sure it all runs smoothly

so just saying a big thanks to Ken (clapping and round of applause)

Cheers Ken:)

It was nice to meet some old faces and to meet some new ones too, Those name tags came in handy.

Had a Great day and thanks to Ken for all the affort he put into it.

Heres my photos of the day, I had to resize them down to 25% of the original to get them uploaded.

If anyone wants the original size then e-mail me and I'll send it on.
