..that_

It was nice to finally put a couple of faces to screen names. Thanks for the drive in the XM Mark, she's a beaut. Hope to meet more of you guys in the future.

I will probably attend this meet most months especially as it starts getting lighter and hopefully some more of you folks will too. Thanks for mentioning it Vulgalour.

Too far for me to be likely to turn up unfortunately, but I have found out that they have a meet at Weston Super Mud later this month, that I may try to get to if I've something capable of the journey by then!

We have a new venue, see the first post for full details, at a nicer venue and are attempting to reboot the meet as a family friendly event focused more seriously on the pre-2000 stuff. Any BXs in the vicinity would be more than welcome.

Sorry for the VERY late notice, I expect none of you will be able to make it. :(

June's meet photographs can be found over here: http://s845.photobucket.com/user/volksa ... RR-2013-06" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

We had a bit of everything and a nice relaxed atmosphere once again. Much more heavily retro in content than at the previous venue too, which was welcome. See you next time, maybe?

Is that the one that had its number plate 'lowered'? Looks good Angyl - I'll try and get along to the next one.

Don't take the Polo too seriously, its owner doesn't, adds to the fun of it I think.
