Any plans forthe show season next year? bx club is getting bigger and better all the time, maybe tag along to some CCC shows, as you know the FCS is in May and the 16v club will be there I bet (including myself), but all bxs were welcome last year which Im sure will be the same for 07.

Would be nice to get some Mk1s and some non performance models there aswell?

Any Ideas guys

I didn't make FCS this year so I aim to be there next year unless it clashes with "The harbourside transport event" which my bus group organises, I'll be at a fair few CCC meetings but other suggestions welcome!

I reckon it would be good if we had a BX Club exclusive meeting (maybe in the summer) since the membership is getting bigger, somewhere central (ish) to give the maximum number of peeps the chance of getting there...... :?:

Yeah, a good turn out from us lot somewhere would be great. I think quite a few of us went to various meetings this year but it`d be great to make a concerted effort and have loads of us in the same place!

Agreed.
If you and Dean are there at the same time though Billy we'll need to build a stage!!!! :D :D :D :D

Come on then peeps. Hows about it? A great mass meeting type thing with BX Clubbers, beer, food, beer, maybe some spanner wielding, beer, light entertainment courtesy of Billy and Dean, beer, some more food, oh, and not forgetting beer! (and BX's of course!)

We could have a dog race! I`ll bring the Calibra (aka the greyhound) and you bring a VW.
I`ll ease off after I`ve lapped you for the 14th time :lol:
