Tis only water Tim!
Although I may have to check the tent for leaks!!!
Failing that the cars dry!
Smokes lots, because enough's enough already!

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...

Well, to all those going have a great time. I want to see lots of pictures and I don't expect to hear those that stopped over remained sober. I know Dean, Doc and Vanny (if he makes it) won't let me down.
Enjoy yourselves peeps, I'll, erm, hold the fort here with probably just some spammers for company :lol:

Rally report

Post by Baldbazza » Sat Jul 14, 2007 9:00 pm

Convoy from South Mimms arrived successfully. Plenty of BXs at the rally - lets make it more tomorrow! Lots of beer, lots of BX Club members, lots of beer, lots of sun(!), lots of beer (but then Doc hadn't arrived when I left so might have run out by now...), and quite a few BX spares so bring money if you're coming Sunday.

Initial photos below (sorry if the quality is crappy but I'm connecting over a very low bandwidth gprs connection from a Travel Inn (I don't do camping...).

Line up at South Mimms services on the M25

... attracted the attention of a French family who had 3 BXs.

BX drivers: love driving, hate parking in straight lines...
