It's on ! :clapping

Just received this email from John Baker:-

This is just to inform you that The Austin Longbridge Federation (ALF) will not be involved with POL in 2015.

Please note below the group who will now be organising POL.

Perhaps there will an auto jumble then? I would have thought that would be the perfect addition to the day and give the trip more purpose the just a pilgrimage to Longbridge? Just a thought.

with space becoming such a premium and loads of us nutters turning up every year, I hope they don't or at leased limit it to one small section of the park ie that field just as you enter on the left.

And charge for the privilege!!!!

Sick of pol saying they have no money and people making thousands while they are there.

Info received from Gemma Cartwright, on behalf of the organising team:

Pride Of Longbridge is 18th April gates open from
9 officially but cars start to attend earlier than that.
It's the 10th anniversary this year to recognise the
collapse of MG Rover but to celebrate the great that came
out of Longbridge.
It would be great for your Club to attend so the
ex work force, community and enthusiasts have a chance to
be together.


I will update the thread as and when I receive further information. :wink3

All you need to do is turn up.

Its a free event but onsite food can get expensive.

I'm always in the r8 section.

Can we indeed just turn up on the day?

Last year got complicated from what I recollect, did we not have to pay a fee for a stand/flag/what ever and also indicate numbers to the organisers? :S

club stands need to be pre arranged, not sure about costs as i've never done it.

normal users are free to turn up.

Just had an email from John Baker, who has been involved with PoL previously saying
"The Pride of Longbridge Event is on the 18 April 2015. and will be organised by the Pride Of Longbridge Heritage and Community Group.
They hope you will support the event this year.
Just to inform you that I will pass on your email address to them on Monday.
"

So I'm expecting contact shortly....

Last year we just told them that we'd be there as a club and they designated an area for us. I guess we'll do something similar but there are a couple of simple improvements we can make:-

- We can have a couple of people at the entrance pointing R8s to the designated area
and
- We can ask to be near/next to the RCOC to get a higher concentration of cars all in one place

Last year I suggested we'd have about 30 cars and there were, just they were spread all over the site :laughing2

Suppose we ought to start counting attendees, so here goes:-

1) GTiJohn in my Coupe
I like Twin Cams.... and Single Cams
