Is this because they haven't got their own area?

I'm expecting quite a few owners being directed to our area so let's make them welcome!

... by parking close together :laughing2

Just bump start it. The field has a down hill bit.


Just don't stall on route.

Weather forecasts show 10-11 degrees the consensus, dry, clear with patchy cloud and a 10% chance of rain. Westerly winds of 10mph and gusts easily double this speed, will mean it'll feel more like 7 degrees.

I'm definitely out on this one now. There's no way I can get the time off from work commitments (just finished for today, in fact. The joy of working nights) I need to for the distance I need to travel. Bit of a bugger but never mind. Look forward to seeing all your pictures from the day and I hope you all have a great time.

'Tis true, the RCOC haven't organised a pitch so we're all in this together.

We've got 25'ish committed for a 40-car pitch and they've got 12'ish but that means virtually no slack for people who just turn up, who wold generally be non-members.

Bear in mind that we had 60+ between the 2 clubs at POL15...

So we are going to have to maximise space utilisation!

I'm intending to get there early to erect the club flag as a marker and try to work out how to fit everybody in :angel

Remember this is POL and we're all mates :D

I'll be attending in my 1993 Rover 416SLi - one previous owner - original condition and 32000 miles from new. It'll be a 300 mile round trip, the longest the car has ever done. Patrick

Great Patrick. Mine's a 1990 416. I know of at least two other 416's too. Look forward to seeing you and the car tomorrow. :-)
