    There will be another meet on Sunday 29th of June at the same venue as last time (Old Cobblers Inn, Rawtenstall, Lancs).

    Meeting at 12 noon, then we're going to go off for a bit of a drive (preplanned route) and return to the pub for a couple of beers and some food for those who want it (food is served all day).

    I'm hoping that because it's a weekend we might get people from a bit further afield making the trip to Lancashire for the meet. As before this will be a joint meet with the UKMKIVs forum.
    Hope to see you there. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif

    Cheers,

    Christian

    Great meet, thanks to those of you who turned up. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif

    The fantastic weather was nice but meant all us forced induction boys were a little down on power. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    Apologies for the fairly poor standard of roads on the drive. You need to travel to Buxton or Scotland to find some real drivers roads (see Scottish meet thread on this forum).

    The Clio in a hedge was one of the highlights. Obviously had a minor brake problem or forgot how to use the steering wheel /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif, no injuries though as the unfortunate driver was stood looking sheepish by the car next to a copper who had a grin on his face, he obviously found it amusing as well. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    The other highlight of the day was Andiroos 625BHP RS4, with just a hint of nitrous oxide. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ooo.gif Thanks for coming along Andy. Sorry you had to wait so long for food, heard you comment that you were so hungry you could cry /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif, sure you enjoyed the mixed grill all the more for it though.

    David, thanks for the ride in your gorgeous S4. Interesting run we had up that dual carriageway, until you overtook me that is, at which point I got bored /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif. Hopefully your car will have depreciated abit more by next April so I can afford to buy it off you /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif.

    I'll post pics up in the gallery asap.

    Cheers,

    Christian

    Dan,

    Small world as you say! Took me a while to finally convince myself it was you before saying hello /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif. Spent the next hour or so trying to find suitable wedding gifts, came back to the desk pleased with our selection only to find that most items were to be discontinued /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif. Maybe we should just ask for vouchers /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif.

    It's Al who is seeing my sister not the other way round /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif. Luckily my other half shares no genes with Al. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh_roll.gif

    Hope your back gets better soon.

    Cheers,

    Christian
