The only rule is that your BX needs to be loved! I think i've sorted out an arrangement for the cars that should show off the best of both the 16v and other BX worlds so hell yeah bring it along!

I might point out that when i first went to the FCS with the BX16v club i did take the 19rd, though i did tow one of the PGAC regional leaders into the show!

I will be popping along; hopefully in the GT if I get it through the MOT. It certainly looks lovely but no doubt has a fair few problems that can be isolated and corrected when its in daily use in a week or two (hopefully). Ill probably bring a friend along too so will need two tickets at least. Do you have any details about where to send payment yet Vanny?

I intend to pop along on Sunday and pay on the gate, is there any arrival time that I should look to get there by, I'll be bringing my humble 1.9RD.

If anything am looking forward to seeing a few of you and putting some faces to names, if you know what I mean. :lol:

I could purchase a ticket now and use Paypal, but knowing the Mail service it wont reach me in time - no offence Vanny, the Royal Mail has continually let me down. Nice little cheque for £30 clearing in my bank further evidence to this.....

See You all on Sunday, will be bringing Sun Tan Lotion - Phil, can I pre-order an Egg Burger please :D :D :D

Egg. BBQ an egg. Mmmm. OK with the burger. Not so sure about the egg though. How about blue cheese melted on top of your burger instead?

Anyway it's all likely to be a mélange of pork, steaks, burgers and the like. No chicken because in my experience it doesn't cook too well on the sort of BBQ tray affairs I'll have. No fish either 'cos I've got to have it in the car with me. A few vegetable kebabs though.

I'll see what I can put together.

I do need someone to supply the drinks though.

I'm looking forward to it.

Sorry Mate, thought by the pic. of the Burger Van that you were towing it up - if its hot, I'll be thankful, if your coming my way perhaps we could meet up on route, will you be A12 then A14 or will you be going another route... :lol:

I'm afraid it'll be a couple of disposable BBQs and a couple of coolboxes out the back of the BX. No burger van for me!

As for route Bluey, I hadn't realy thought about it yet. I imagine I'll do A130/A120 to the M11 and up to the A14 and across. I'll PM you later...
