We are attending the Bristol Italian Automoto Festival BIAMF (http://www.biamf.co.uk) in the historic financial area of Bristol centred around Corn Street and surrounding area. ENTRY IS FREE. This is an event where four and two wheeled Italian exotica is displayed on the closed streets and you can amble up and down to view the exhibits in a good atmosphere. Allow a few hours for this. For those that are more interested in shopping etc. there is the Cabot Circus Mall or the Historic Harbour area to explore. We have agreed to meet at 13:00pm at "The Nails" in Corn Street to decide whether to go to a pub, cafe' or picnic on nearby Castle Green, or split up and do what you want to. This is a social non Cobra event due to parking etc. in the city centre.
I would make use of the Park & Ride facilities (£2:00 pp return last year) which stops right at the area the event is taking place opposite the Hippodrome Theatre. The sites are at.
A4, Bath Road, Brislington, BS4 5?? just off the A4174 bypass.
Long Ashton, BS3 2HB. Long Ashton Park & Ride, Bristol (Ashton Road) (http://www.bristol.org.uk/info/8907/)

As we have a non Cobra event on Saturday we have arranged a Cobraneering day for a Sunday lunch 12:00, meet 11:30 onwards, at the Biddestone Arms, Biddestone, SN14 7DG nr. Castle Combe. It is approx 10-12 miles from jtcn 18 of the M4 towards Chippenham. The run will consist of your journey there. A table has been booked for 16 for 12:00 (an educated guess) and they have a large car park. Start the Sun dance now. This day is also Drive It Day. This is the Federation of British Vehicle Clubs annual show of strength for the Classic movement so you may well see other older vehicles on your run to the venue. FBHVC (http://www.fbhvc.co.uk)

It is the National Kit Car Show at Stoneleigh in Warwickshire. Anyone wishing to go either arrange to meet others and go in convoy or make your own way there.

A run through the Wiltshire countryside arranged by Robin & Jocelyn Clark culminating in a BBQ at Savernake Forest nr. Marlborough. We will meet at Townsends Garden Centre In Bath Road, Devizes at 10:00am for coffee and a short stroll to view the Caen Hill flight of locks on the Kennet & Avon Canal, at 29 locks the longest flight on the British canal network. Then the run will take us to the BBQ site.

A run will be organised by Bryan & Carol Bartlett which will possibly end at the Cotswold Water Park nr South Cerney, Glos. Details TBA.
