If its like last year the Navigator and I just turned up and paid on the door. The rain , like the parking, was free. It was also where I believe the whole SW CRC club tent envy thing began. Not how big etc.

It's the rain that puts me off, the one time I went, I ended up drilling holes in the floor to let it all out (if I wanted to paddle there's a beach here).
Will have another go at fixing my overheating and see what it's like on the day.

Andy, you've had that soft top for years. I almost offered to buy it from you.
Spent my roof money on new cylinder heads! I'll remember to bring the golf umbrella this year though after last years weather.
See you at route 38.

Stu, yes, it's the 7th of August.

I now have the Shelter, the table, and the flag back at my place - Courtesy of Maurice who can't make Edgecumbe

Now - as you know - My attendance at the moment is questionale depending on Kaths health - so if somebody that is definitely going wants to collect the gear or me drop it off - then that would be great - I will turn up if I can but I cannot be certain - and I wouldnt want you to be without shelter and flag etc .

Let me know

So who went and what was it like ?

Murray

It was wonderful! Bright hot sunshine all day!:roll:, 4 beautiful cars and 1 tatty one, mine! We had a little? downpour of horrendous proportions for about 10 mins which spoilt things for a lot of people, many headed for home. Dave, did you get caught in that one? :grin: He left just before it all came over. I managed to get my hood up in time but Matt?(?) and his friend had a rather damp car to come back to, too busy eating noodles!
So we had Andy L, Dave, Me, Matt, and the chap from Taunton and his son, so sorry I have forgotten your names, (Cobra man94) with a very, very shiny AK.1889118892188931889418895

So a pretty good day with lots of interest in the cars, on the way back there were a few people standing outside a village pub, egging you on to make some noise! As if I would! Sounded quite nice though in the narrow streets. :grin:

Murray,
Did get very wet, stopped at Millbrook as I couldn't see where I was going. By the time that shower had finished, it looked like we'd both had an accident!
I'm going to have to get a top for next year, this problem with lack of dryness is getting out of hand!
Are you still on for Sunday on the Hoe? Have to keep an eye on the weather this time.
Dave (now dry!).

Did we get away with payment on entry last year? The poster attached to the website suggests pre payment for exibitors of cars. I suppose if we turn up together they would let us in anyway.
