Pre meeting email
Very quick email to remind you the next meeting is on Thursday 6th Feb at the Cardinals Hatt, usual time 20:00.
At present I do not think I will be able to make it, I came off my bike the other day and have damaged the ligament in my right shoulder so driving is out at present, along with typing.
Post meeting email
Thanks to Ray for picking me up and taking me to the meeting, as always a good evening of company and chat. The pub was quiet and as the back room was closed off we sat in the corner.
Nigel has been approached by the organiser of events at Wiscombe Park Hill Climb they are trying to attract clubs and are offering 2 free tickets for groups of 20 cars. I welcome your thoughts on this but knowing how busy you are and not normally managing to get 20 cars to attend some of the static shows.
I attended the refuel event as previously mentioned, the Elise did not want to play as it was a very cold morning and she did not want to let me in to start with, and then would not start. I eventually coaxed her into life and arrived at Dunkeswell just turned 10:00 and it was very busy then, by the early afternoon there where cars parked all along the entry road and some had parked on the main road. There was a good range of cars to be seen and they are starting to do a display for groups or marques, the next one is for American vehicles.
I was speaking to Ray about the Haynes breakfast run as I knew he was planning on going in February but he did not make it. Apparently this is getting such a big event they are splitting it into 2 meetings, more information can be found here first Sunday of the month post 1980 Future Classics and Vintage and Classics pre 1980 second Sunday of the month.
Next meeting will be on the 5th March the last one at The Cardinals Hatt before the summer driveouts start. I did not get enough interest in going bowling to arrange it which is a pity as it was a really good event the last time.
Mid montlhy email
Received from Tony Webb a request to assist him in getting his Elan from the Midlands (Coventry area I think) if any one can assist with the loan of a trailer, and a car with towbar or both to allow him to get the car down to storage he has managed to locate. If you can assist in anyway please let me know and I can send you his email and contact number, or send your details onto him if you would prefer him to contact you.
I have heard from Terence at the 7 owners club, their February meet 3rd Sunday of the Month is next week at Dawlish Warren golf club starting at 09:30 then proceeding for a blat.

Not much else to report for this month, next meeting will be the last indoor meet at the Cardinals Hatt before the summer evenings driveouts start, this is on the 5th March at 20:00.
