There's got to be some other events this year or even next year? Will check out the CCC website and report back.

Pretty sure thats it mate for 2012! theres the regional ones, but not sure if theres one down your way.

Next year will be the X rally, CXM, Stratford, the "National" in July and of course CCC Ecosse! :D

:lol: you're so cute (and too easy ...)

I think Tim's right, a few regional events, but probably nowt much else big-event-wise until NEC, then next X-rally. We shall just have to make our own fun, how about that tech day Mr Leech?

Im sure we could probably do a Winter Event but probably just a day one as camping out in the snow and Ice aint my idea of fun! Most of my fleet "hibernate" after end of October and dont get used once the gritters start a spreading.....unless I buy a winter hack that is (Paul???)

I've placed the order for the banners today. 2x 3m x 1m. £36 each + the dreaded. I'll go and collect them next week some time, I'll bring one along on the French run. Thanks to Mr Chidders for designing the artwork and sending the PDF to Award Banners. :)

In case someone would like to take pics facing the tour Eiffel , the best place to drive is at :

Place Jacques Rueff (in the parc du champ de mars)

All the tower can be in the photo and it is a quite place ( except on 2007 october 20th when 140 000 people were there all white with red cross dressed : tremendous was that ! but that's another story )

Message from my personal secretary (dad), "phone call for you today, your banners are ready to collect" quick or what, only ordered them yesterday. Me thinks a run out to Leeds tomorrow in the DS3 is in order. :)

chunnel is booked, though im disgusted how early we are leaving. Is there a plan to meet somewhere short of the tunnel so those not already in the south can meet up? Maybe a 15-20 minute window?
