Thanks John and all who contributed to this great day out - my first one and surely the first of many. A real pleasure to meet some very friendly and knowledgeable enthusiasts. Hope to meet and chat with you regularly from now on. Hope I can contribute to the growth of the club in the future. Many thanks again and best regards, Duncan (oldest car at party).

As a newcomer to the club I just wanted to thank those involved in organising the event on Sunday for all their hard work. I thought it was a great day with the numbers and variety of cars far exceeding my expectations. I am now looking forward to attending future events organised by the club.
.....And yes as a newbie I do feel slightly guilty for taking home some of the "silverware"!

Yes may I just congratulate the winners again, we didn't know your names, but I'm sure that didn't spoil it!

The numbers of car's and people who made such an effort to turn out
for our event was real gratifying and certainly exceeded my wildest expectations! :clapping



Also thank's to our sister club who turned up in force, I hope everybody enjoyed their day.
