    aaron was nice to meet you dude. and like everyone has said, what you've done for COV and to get everyone together and involved is brilliant, ASN neeeds guys like you to run it. you and your boys were top blokes, partying into the night with us lot, which for a lot of us makes the show worthwhile, we just need to get the numbers up in both clubs.

    reaaaaalllly dissapointed with ASN to be fair. but i represent and will continue to do so as there are great people on here and the forum itself is good. i think those of us that attended for ASN just wished for more from whoever the chiefs are. shame really.

    I thought it was built by Pete, or is pete a randomer that stole the mic and made a load of stuff up?!

    Paaaaaaaaaaaaaat

    I do not love that car, and the driver is a woofter for not racing a van!
    That's the same face I saw in the pic he sent me of him and chez playing hide the sausage...

    Nice pics guys, will get mine up soon. Did we actually have a club stand? I thought we just parked in that space because it was free. I didn't see any banners etc, but maybe they just blew away on Sat morning before I arrived it was so fkg windy! I'm sure we had some last year & in 2010.

    Nice pics Scott. See!! Being a giant does have its advantages ;)
    I managed to get a few on the phone before it died I'll get em up later. But think they'll be a bit samey.

    Hopefully we've made enough noise regarding ASN bunting that someone will take note and ensure we have it on the stands in future. Would be a damn shame if not.

    Bedt part of the weekend for me was seeing Scott getting ripped to shreds by the milkshake boys for his dodgy accent :lmfao:

    Can't believe that stupid old barsteward called it an estate, he could have at least called it a sportback!!

    Saw these plodding on the M25, in the middle lane around 7.20am on the way to Inters:

    One of the guys here got a 13.7 with just a tune and diverter valve so it's possible ;) He got 12.6 on a GT28 (will be on mine eventually) later mind you.

    13.2 is impressive!
