Hi everyone.

Paul (Lola) has suggested a new thread for this year. Thanks Paul. Below is announcement made on South Kent thread earlier:



Hi everyone,

3 weeks on from the last attempt to get together. As suggested, we get together on Saturday 8th March if the weather is good to us.

Well, the forecast for next weekend is SUNNY and 13C. So lets try again. Suggested venue etc as before is:

Secret Garden Restaurant
Mersham Le Hatch Business VIllage
Hythe Road, Ashford, Kent TN25 6NH

How about meeting up at, say 11.00 there. Then there is a possible photo shoot opportunity we could do after coffee - more on that when we meet. Then back to the restaurant for a snack lunch at about 12.30.

Let us know if you're likely to come.

All the best,

David

Neil (AK1040) tells me he's going to be there, so now 5.

Let's get spring cleaning and polishing, and give the car a blast. Weather still looks OK (a bit foggy early morning) but should brighten.

Jamie,

That would be good. I know it's a fair drive for you but the venue is good.

All the best,

Can't polish mine in the garage not enough room! With all my rc planes and the Cobra there's not enough room to swing a cat, unless it didn't mind a few serious head injuries;)

Andy

Oh yeah, I'm aiming to be there around 11, so could meet up on the way down.Got to pass Maidstone on the way. Is there a Motorway services at Maidstone?

Sounds like my garage, this afternoon my ducted fan F16 fell from the wall but luckily my head stopped it from hitting the car!

Sounds like a lucky escape there Rich! Hope your head's ok. I wouldn't want one of my 1/4 scale models hitting either my car or my head!!

OK, be safe - I HATE motorway maintenance areas....

I've arranged for a special parking area near the cafe/restaurant. If you don't see any Cobras in the main cartpark - don't panic. I'll be keeping any eye open for you.

Cheers David. Not keen on Motorway service areas myself. I had the misfortune to work at some for a while!!

See you there
