Well arrived home @ 8.30 with just under 300 miles on the trip clock (still with the flat tyre)...What a great run, they just keep getting better. Thanks Douglas, I dont know how you find the time to organise all this. Great meeting many new members, see you soon.

Fantastic Day! Big thanks to Douglas for everything, such a good route. Nice to meet the newer members, as well as the 'old timers'! I didnt even sneeze once even though I hadnt taken and hayfever tablets. Hope to see all again soon.

Douglas, Eleanor and I had a great time. Driving in the convoy was just fantastic. I kinda felt as if I was in an old fashioned road race. (all within legal speed limits of course) Some of the cars were really well turned out especially that red one with the twin exhausts. Whose is that ? Thanks to all for making us very welcome. A perfect day.

Fantastic day out and great company as usual. Well done Douglas for the usual hard work, collecting the money for the meals didn't look easy! Also to Fee for organising the ferry tickets.

Again, big pat on the back to Douglas for his superb organisation and planning and well done to Fiona for sorting out the ferry tickets. Another memorable club run.

Now that our PC's back on line, we can add our thanks to Douglas for a superb day out on Sunday. Great company, good weather, and even a calm ferry crossing.  The Good Lord was certainly smiling on the Club! Ours was the Mark 1 with the twin exhausts, the quiet one!!
