We`ll be there, as ever, on the Retrorun, now AA Grand Tour which definitely has hard standing. There certainly isn`t enough firm ground for all the car clubs so plan for the worst and hope for the best. "Que sera..." as Alma Cogan said before Doris Day. We`ve decided to forget camping and are staying in Milton Keynes, which is a shame.

Alma Cogan!!! Blimey. Not admitting to knowing her!

Tim if you are reading this can you give us an idea as to what to expect? have you been there lately (today) for E.G.? Looks like a wettish day down there again.. WX here right now = still dry.

Packing the car now. Just away to fill it with fuel.

Happy days..

Hi Alex

I am afraid I will not be able to attend. I am nursing a bruised and battered body after an 'incident' whilst racing during our national championships (sailing). It is difficult for me to sit or stand for any length of time and I will be in severe trouble with the other half if I jeopardise my recovery.

Sorry to miss seeing you and being there. Whatever the weather, I'm sure it will end up being a good show.

Tim

Hi Tim,

Sorry to hear you won't be there... I plan to arrive early afternoon after the rain stops (in my dreams)
