Re: 2013 SCC

Post by Caffiend »

Good, is that to arrive Sunday 23rd for the SCC "proper" to start on the Monday? - just for purposes of mulling over route ideas. So far I think I've come up with about 64,793* miles to make sure we go everywhere that everyone (including me) wants to go, so might need to revisit that.

*totally not made up

EDIT: Also, Mark - go back to your first post in the thread and 'Edit', and you can change the thread title to include the dates :)

We can make the 23rd a stopover if people would prefer to make the 24th the start proper. I'm only 1 1/2 hrs from Ecclefechan so doesn't affect me really, but for people trekking up from the S.E./ Wales and the Midlands then a overnight stopover on the 23rd would probably be preferable.

I'll only resort to violence Sandre, if you start thinking outside of the box, whilst pushing the envelope!!
just so long as we're singing from the same Hymn sheet :wink:

Must be that 56mph syndrome again - I got to Ecclefechan from Dursley (Glos.) in 4 hrs 20 minutes in an Ami 8 once, And got as far north as Wigton in less than 4 hours in a Wartburg! I find the best way is to set off around 4am to get there in time for breakfast :D

Oh noes, what have I done? Can we desynergise this paradigm please?

Mark wants to live here but hasn't worked out how to use URL tags yet so asked me to post the link. It does look like a beautiful stopover point.

Although it's unlikely I'll be able to take part, if you want me to design a plaque á la BXagon, Challenge, I'd be happy to.

Cheers Phil, I'd really appreciate that. If you're BX'less when the SCC happens there is always a spare seat in my car. :)

Tim, if you can hang on until the ICCCR, when we can all get together to discuss it properly. Need to finalise a route, arrange campsites etc.

I'd say there are four main themes to consider re a SCC plaque design.
1. Citroen BX.
2. Tartan.
3. Irn-Bru.
4. Whiskey.
Well maybe five main themes,
5. Haggis.
