Hey Guys

After the very successful meet at the very hospitable Evolve Automotive, with some new friends made and some great banter flying around, I thought I'd try for another meet. There really is a great little community that we have here and the more we see each other the more we can help each other and get to know more people. It also helps with how conversations turn out on here because you never really get to know someone unless you speak with them face to face.

For those of you who haven't been to the Grasshopper Inn, it's a great pub/restaurant/hotel, and it is huge with huge character to go with it. Obviously it is quite southerly for which I apologise to you northerners, but it is such a great venue, with lots of parking and very welcoming too. I went there after work today and have spoken with the head office girl Vikki, who is willing to lay out a table for whatever size we require in the carvery, and I may be able to work out a good price for a large booking for lunch so lets get some sort of date to work with.

Lets say Sunday 10th July, if that's too soon for people to work around then let me know, I've just plucked a date out of the air. We shouldn't leave it too long though. Also if a Saturday is preferred by most we'll go for that.

Thanks

Lee

I think we should go for August Lee. You not coming to Uxbridge mate as it looks a proper show with loads of classics not just BM's ?

I will be making a beeline for the yank stand amongst other things :)
