Hi,
Here's a thought. If any of you guys have any small spares that you want to give away, sell or swap then bring them along too. What do you guys think?

Gonna try and make it, although I won't be in the Capri unfortunately as the engine is on a stand at the moment!

Great idea (especially as I'm in Bristol so not too far away)! Even if I don't make this one, I'd be up for others throughout the rest of the year if I can make them.

Hi,
Great, it will be nice to see another person there. 8-) Shame the V8 won't be coming though, I think we'd all like to see (and hear) it! :)

Hi,
I'm looking forward to this meet. :) I'm definitely going if it's sunny, I may be going if there are light rain showers, but if there is heavy rain forecast I won't be attending, unfortunately.
I know it's short notice, but if it's going to pour down next weekend and the weather looks like it will be fine for the weekend after, could the meet be deferred if everyone agrees?
The event would be better to be postponed than be a complete washout!

Even though I have the day booked off from work I wouldn't want to turn up to a washed out meet with no Capris. I say yes.

My thoughts exactly. Most people are travelling some distance to be there, so we want it to be a memorable day! Let's hope that the forecasted weather gets better for this weekend.
