11/11/2009 1100 - 1700 "WHEEL MEET AGAIN" Motor Show The following extract from St Mary's website about this event says it all...

"2010’s Motor Show was blessed with fantastic weather. It was a packed day with a busy feel. There were record numbers of classic car exhibitors and a near record number of local dealerships, many with huge hospitality trailers such as Ford, Mercedes All brought along the latest models for display. And would you believe there were record numbers of stalls especially with children in mind.

The 2011 Motor Show will be once again held at St Mary’s. It opens at 11am on Sunday 11th September."

1730-1930 Multi-region Go Karting Hi everyone

In order to try and make things easier for everyone, make the event cheaper to book, plus fit better
better with the changed profile of those people who wish to come, I have re-negotiated the event with
Rye House to include a change in format, plus an upgrade for us.

Address details for Rye House can be found here
http://www.rye-house.co.uk/Contact.aspx

The new details are the following...
- the event will now be a head-to-head "grand-pre" format
- the event will be 75 mins total track time, 15mins qualifier/warm up round plus 60mins racing
- the cost will be £77 per go kart - paid individually BEFORE the 12th Nov.
- if you want to have multiple people use the same kart over the 60mins racing, then that's fine

So, what does this mean...
- you can now pay £77 for just yourself and race as an individual
- or you can pay £77 for a team and split the racing between you (so saving £77)

This was the best deal I can get to make things cheaper and easier for us all.

As such, please contact John at Rye-House 01992 460 895, selecting option 2 as soon as
possible to book your place ASAP!

Many thanks,

Alex

1930-2100 Xmas Meal! Hi folks

I've made a provisional booking on the 13th Dec (Tuesday) for 10-15 people from 1930 onwards.

At the moment, they don't have a Xmas menu and are not sure they are doing something specific, but they are sending me their generic menu which is more than varied enough for most tastes.

When I have the menu, I'll forward it on for people to let me know what they want.
