Well that was nice to catch up with a few folks this afternoon.

Didn't manage to catch up with everyone I would have liked and had to return for baby guarding

Hopefully someone else has pictures of a reasonably well attended event

What, like these:

Interesting colour on this early Mk2 19TRS

Just some of the BX's that turned out Sunday, although if I'd known there'd only be one over the whole weekend, and no estates, I'd have taken Timex!

Rob Moss's lovely early AX 14TRE

Nice surprise to see Sandre on Sunday - hope you didn't over do it too much. Also good to speak to various other friends.

As seems to be the trend, Saturday was quiet, but a better range of vehicles than the National on the Sunday - at least there was 1 H van this time! Only 2 CX's turned up, the same number of ZX's, and mine was one of 5 XM's in attendance (including one estate). Only 1 Traction, but on the Saturday it was joined by a Rosalie. Something that several people commented on was the number of early C5 estates there were over the weekend - I think they rivalled DS's for numbers, and for the most part they seemed well cared for too. Talking of DS's, Sunday afternoon entertainment was supplied by someone emptying out the boot of a DS and climbing inside to play with the rear height corrector.

Thanks Mike, I have been paying until today when I feel betterer again, it was --totally-- worth it though, lovely to be out and catch up with a few people. Thanks to Paul H for driving.
