Thanks to all who turned up for our Pre Winter Tech Day today.

Thanks to Helen for the home made Fine Pieces.

Thanks to Malcolm for his Technical Expertise and assistance.

A special thanks to Frances for making delicious soup and taking us in out of the cold.

Soup AND fine pieces - my you were spoilt :mrgreen:

Pics look good too. The garage still looks cold though. Bbbbrrrrr :shock:

Shame I could not come along but next time with a bit luck I'll make it.

Had a productive day at home so not all bad.

PS did the fine pieces have chocolate on :?

Would the chocolate have swung the day Lorraine? :lol:

Now I know the name for that particular fine piece.. and fine it was (as 'twas other.. no rocks there).

Who had the clunk from the rear on left hand bends? .. was it a Mk1 .. if so then it is probably the battery breaking loose and trying to put a dent in the rear on left hand bends .. so that may have sorted that question?

All the tools back in place in my sheddie and we did not even have to crank up the heater... or perhaps we should have for those of more thermally sensitive nature? :(

...Evening all !
Has been an interesting afternoon and good fun too :D

Lorraine, we were totally spoilt by Frances and Bill, they are a lovely couple and did us proud. Was perfect timing to be invited to their cosy kitchen to warm up.

Thanks to Ian and Malcolm who organised the event - hope you do more.

From this more thermally sensitive individual - if I had known the heater had also come with you I'd have requested to see how it worked !!

Michty, what a day I picked to miss. Fine pieces with chocolate on, home made soup, heater (even more of an attraction had it been switched on no doubt!)!

Yes Malcolm, chocolate does it every time - I'm so easy :roll: or so I have been told anyway......

I hope you all managed to get your cars ship shape for winter. I'm hoping to get mine to my dad's garage tomorrow for three days to dry out so I can get the hard top on. Well, that's the plan at any rate.

Catch up with you all later and well done for keeping the NSE spirit going :mrgreen:

The clunking from the OSR was on my Mk1 so I'll check out the battery. That pit was intimidatingly wide when driving over it! I missed out on the rocky road traybake - boo! but the rockcakes were ace!

From a less thermal sensitive person.. Opps :oops:

Too toasty in my oversized thermal romper suit :) .. I have an Estonian romper suit that is for -20C if you remind me next time (blizzard wear :wink: ).. not exactly chic but should be cooking inside!

Thermal romper suit sounds just the ticket - Lorraine, I will arm wrestle you for it next time! :D
(actually it wasn't that bad yesterday - I just should have brought my thicker gloves!)

Have sent a thank you card to Frances and Bill this morning with all our names on, to thank them for their hospitality.
