Got back in about an hour ago, boy that was a wet day out!

Thanks to Stevie and Douglas for keeping us company on the motorway.

Yes indeed, a bit of a washout - but - loads of cars turned out and it did stop raining at one point, but only for a couple of minutes!! Did a Mini Cotswolds run on Saturday which was a much better day! Cheers, Jon

Enjoyed my 780 mile Sunday run to the Spring Rally. Very impressed with the turn out by Club Owners. Never seen so many Mx5s in one place. Made up for the Crap weather.

No, Jon Didn't get lost, although the directions for the Mini Cotswolds Run have to be some of the worst I have ever seen, Margaret and Rob did an excellent job keeping us on the route, a bit of forward map planning by Margaret during the pub lunch meant we were ok.

Just back from down south today. We had a wonderful time over the rally weekend, good meals and excellent company. It was great to meet some of the TT oc members. Once again the club has given us the chance to meet people we would never have otherwise met.
