Pat, it's April 21st this year, to avoid clashes with the ExCel show. The good news, it should be warmer, the bad news, it'll probably be wetter.

hi pat its nice and sunny this morning but freezing here, and im on the coast hidden behind the isle of wight not up a hill in dorset, dont know what its like there. no ice about here so i hope they have a ecent day today.

i see you sold the rally AT, if i had the cash i wouldve had a pop at it myself. what have you done to your AT now then?
i'll be going to the adv day at the ace, last time a load of us met at fleet services and went in. youre always welcome on a FaG G&7 brekkie run, but you know they wont come out till may or june ish i expect! a few of us are always out on a sunday morning though, we'll have to come your way

Just sat down after a nice hot shower etc. I just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone that made the effort to turn up and have a good time.

There were some new faces there and it was a pleasure to spend time with everyone that came.

Thanks to Luke. Jason, Mike, Tim and Daz for joining me on the ride out yesterday. Luke, I hope you managed to get home safely? A big thank you to David for leading the off road ride, I know Chris got back and it was good to see you got back safely Darren (Force), hopefully you managed to get back and pick up your stuff Jon? Sorry it ended in an AA truck for you.

As usual, the camp site was left spotless, well, apart from one Gin and Tonic can!! Thank you everyone for this.

I hope everyone had a good ride home? As soon as I can, I'll put up the pictures I took.

For those that looked at the weather and thought you'd wimp out - you missed a cracking weekend! B)

See you all soon.

Mark

Well said Mark, we all enjoyed the weekend. Good venue, Great ride out in the rain, If Dorset looks that goot wet, it must be stunning in the sunshine !
Always look forward to waking up in my tent to sub zero tempritures, chipping the ice off the fly sheet, having to get hot water to thaw out the Ign barrel of my bike so I can turn the key !
Well worth the effort, thanks once again Mark.

Great weekend! The ride out followed a great route, it did get a bit moist at times! Thanks Mark for that. I met some great people and had birthday to remember.
Look forward to doing it again some time.
Cheers.

Just like to add my thanks to Mark for organizing this weekend, had a great time with friends old and new.
The ride home to the midlands was uneventful if a little cold.
