Contrary to the forecast, we've had very little rain over the past 2 days after all.

Hope not as I’m now not working Sunday! Praying for a miracle that the forecast is wrong...

Tom Morley confirmed tonight that the event will be going ahead, 'do or die!'

The museum are happy to support the event in any way they can, rather than see it cancelled.

So, I hope to see you all there :)

Decided to drop out looking at the weather forecast 70 % chance of rain all day & its nasty road via Oxford.

Had to make a decision a couple of days ago and unfortunately decided against it based on the forecast at the time and the risk of a 240 mile round trip.

Latest forecast looks showery for the day rather than persistent so hopefully it will be a good day!

The weather was better than expected today. I think it only rained heavily once but I may have missed some showers by sampling the delights of the tea shop...

Very good turn out as usual, we counted 23 club cars there.

We had a very good turn out of G-registration R8s

There was a nice Tahiti trio too
