    Hi gyus,

    Really gutted to say but my missus announced to me this morning that she will need the car for tomorrow as friend of her stitched her up and there is no one to take her to work now so it means I wont be able to make it unfortunately. Sorry for that chaps.:sob:

    That's too bad Matt, next time.

    Those who are still coming I've got all of your numbers so I'll text you this evening to confirm times etc as my access to the internet is going to be limited today.

    :laugh:

    I was proper nervous driving back from the carwash earlier. Almost went into the back of someone cos I was too busy looking up at the grey clouds praying it wouldn't rain.

    My car is staying in the garage until tomorrow morning. Any driving I've gotta do now is being done in my girlfriend's Ka!

    WoW, that's keen.... was going to join the convoy, but that's too early for me.
    Anyone want to meet at a certain time/place at the circuit to say hi?

    yeah I know Atworth, drive through it every day on my way to work.
    Ok for me to meet you in Castle Combe, and is Hanz your name?
    No idea about the ASN pitch, hoping that info would have been confirmed so I assume public parking.

    Louis, sorry I missed you... was running late and got to the castle at about 10:45, could not see your car so assume you left.
    Event was OK, but disapointed though to be honest thought it would have been busier/more trade stands etc.

    it wasnt a bad turnout in sense of members, but there wasnt enough stands to spend money on.

    it was nice putting faces to names and had a few good laughs...

    Ash B and Fran sorry i didnt get around to scanning your cars... you know how farhan started moaning about leaving. but will catch up again soon!

    some of the best laughs of the day...

    "whats your name?"... "ash"... "and your username?".... "itswasntme"... "then who was it? shaggy?"

    "i was driving up to the Dartford bridge trying to get there before 6am to save me paying £1.50"... "Blud you wasted £3 fuel trying to get there faster!"

    yes the a3 sportbacks are like mini a4 avants... probably why I like it so much. I love the a4 and a6 avants especially the rs4 and rs6! just don't need such a big car
    it was nice meeting you guys as well! hope to be at some future meets, had a good time today
