POL 2016 IS CANCELLED dut to the amount of rain we've had recently, meaning it's too slippery underfoot. Gemma Cartwright has just called me to say this.

So we're looking at whether we can reconvene at Gaydon but they have a Ford event on so may be busy...

Keep looking for updates here and /or Facebook.

Just spoken to the Gaydon events manager, they have several events on today, including a big JLR event, so it will be BUSY already . Entrance to the museum is likely to be slow. They will try to manage any extra visitors but best not to turn up en masse!

The best we might get is standing in a wet car park - just like POl then :wink3

Expecting a call back after 8.30....

:sad Very unhappy now. I've been looking forward to this for months...

I'm hoping they can re-schedule for next weekend or sometime pretty soon.

I am currently in a car park near Marks and Spencer Longbridge which was an alternative but not now apparently due to some enthusiastic driving in the multi storey!

I expect I'll be on my way home soon :S

No status change on any of the websites I'm checking, including "B31 voices." Latest tweet was that it was postponed not cancelled, so a reschedule might be on the cards? Really doesn't look like it's going to be today.

Always some idiot to spoil it for others. I heard the Cowley lot were planning on meeting there too.
I've kinda given it up now. Disappointed not to meet all the people off here

Pol is going ahead 100% but if the rain carries on we will be parking in different areas. I have met with officers and had clearance for the back up plan. Soooo as groups you need to be flexible and supportive organisation your end is a must. If you are the link please pm message me with an upto date number so k can keep you upto date with the final decisions. Sorry if my grammar is wrong but just need to get the point over "
