95% certain I'll be there.
I thought most of the tuit's in the south west were square ones? We're lazy folk you see, but if we really want to get a round tuit then you could chop the corners of the square ones. Hey presto, you've got a round tuit! :lol:

Just thought, I hope you don't plan to travel down the M6 at any great speed, I'm not sure my car will be up to that.

I'll be plodding along at 66mph Jane. Only taken the valver up to 134 mph once and it was a trifle nerve wracking.!

I'm vaguely thinking about turning up for the Saturday as well - I heard there's some kind of re-enactment of Lady Godiva's naked horse-ride through the centre of Coventry. I think the original reason for this escapade was political in some form but I'm sure no-one cares to remember what that was :D

Ok what time shall we get there, Ive been before, its great but a 2/3 hours tops (with a break for luncheon of course) should be enough to see it all.

As some people will be travelling quite a distance shall we aim for mid-day (12 noon) just in case a few of us were out the night before or fancy a lay in (it will be my first day off for 10 days :roll: )
