Looking forward to this. Will be my first run with the club too.
Not sure whether my furry nav will make it depends on his mood.

If anyone else from the Moray area is attending give me a PM and we'll convoy down

Just had a quick look at the weather report for tomorrow and it looks like this rain is going to clear away to leave a sunny day (highs of 20 degrees) and a clear evening.

Perfect 5 weather

Cheers for a great welcome to my first run with the club. Had a great time, a great drive and met some brilliant people. Looking forward to the next meet (probably The Gathering)

Thought I'd upload three photo's from today.

Good to meet you Si, glad you enjoyed the run.

Nice pics too, in the last one which technique/tool are you using to blur the area that is not the cars?

Cheers

Ian,

The last photo is editted on photoshop elements. Its done using a dual layered picture. The first layer is everything blurred with the normal picture underneath. Then you erase the area you want not to blur on the blurred layer.

Its a great technique to give an extra impression of speed on a still photo.

:D Hi!All!

What's the betting that the renowned chip guzzler- Lorraine was in action here?? I have read a few posts -that you have to be on your guard if you have a bag i hand - seems if she 's around- then you will be mugged!!

I do like my chips- but a wee bit far to go for them- I do tend to cook a very crispy & crunchy number- on my cooker... but am quite greedy- tend to scoff the lot- then Simon- my son- goes you ate all these???

Anyway- see you all soon- one of these runs! Best Regards to you all! :lol:

8) Hi Again!


Forgot to say - photos were great!- Who cares if they are not quite up to David Bailey standards-just show a perspective of folks having a good time- who's blurry then..sometimes an amateur can catch an angle that even an expert can't envisage!

So keep them coming everybody! :D

P.s ... I have guzzled all my chips!! :roll:

Yes, good run last night. My stand-in co-driver thoroughly enjoyed himself. He made some daft remark about meeting "a nice bunch of folk" - he must have sneaked out of the chip shop for a little while and wandered around Foggie on his own when that happened!
I think that must be the largest number of cars that's been on a chip run.

10 on Wednesday, I'm pretty sure we've done more than that on a couple of occasions, I'd need to go back and look at the photo's but Dufftown last year quite likely and I'm sure one other.

Edited cos I can't count....
