Davy Jones certainly was in the Monkees and was in fact also the nephew of Violet Carson who played Coronation Street's puritanical matriarch, Ena Sharples. Betcha didn't know that! 8)

I did, but not proud of it. :oops:
He got a part in Corry as her nephew.
No! I don't watch Corry and never have. :roll:

or, what is a fear of vegetables called? and it is not Bo'nessitus. I know people from Bo'ness who could do to vegetables in 10 minutes what it takes the human body to do do in 8 hours, yes you guessed it

I have posted out all the plaques to those not staying over on the Friday, with the exception of Will Haggon and Paul Gilhooley. (neither have paid or been in touch) Instead of giving the plaques to Sandy for the others to collect as previously mentioned, I would appreciate some help for Richard with the Marquee on Friday and collect your plaque from him.

We have some guests from other Areas attending the weekend..Bill & Carolyn from Tyne Tees, whom you may have met at Lindisfarne and two North Yorkshire members Mick who is A/C and Neill with his son Sam, Neill you may recall was at Callander two years ago (with Sam) and they both drove up to and back from Knockhill in the same day at our 2005 Track Night.

If anyone wants a copy of the Car Spec we displayed on the cars last year, e-mail me and I'll send it to you to update your mods. (you will have to do it yourself because I just don't have the time this week.

************************************************************
Please be aware if you don't have a Rally Plaque you don't get into the field, you can still come to the Event and join us, but you must park in the spectators Car Park.

On Sunday I'm coming up with a friend who has an Alfa Spider (photos are in my photobucket - link is in Tumshies and Swedes photo posting), any possibility we could squeeze him on the end of our pitch?

If not he'll be OK at the single entrants section, but I thought he'd enjoy the company!!

By the way, we are planning on arriving about 9 - 9.15am, is that early enough? We are assuming it's OK because the public don't get in until 10.........

Thanks
ALEX.

That should be ok, as long as none of our other members/exhibitors object, think we can find a corner to put him in. :wink:
