Jason where you see the four zebra crossings on your pic, just below this is a big section of empty parking bays where that white van is on its own. Thats where mate. Just turn into the car park and drive all the way down to the far end and park up there. :)

Last year you just turned up and they took your reg number so assuming it will be the same process again this year,

Cheers

Less than a week to go!

I must admit I have left Calvin to do the organising this year due to an ongoing situation. Hopefully this will come out as well, but can I get some feedback please at somepoint for how you felt this years event went? Calvin is not the organising type really so I would like to know exactly what has been good or bad so the quality of service can be improved. I know it may not be really important but I take running the club very serious, because if it wasn't for you guys as enthusiasts there would be no events or clubs or reproduced parts, so it all counts!

Hi Kris, and everyone else :wave:

The Surrey Club always put on good shows Kris. You guys do a brilliant job indeed so should be a cracking day !! Suppose feedback is always good for you guys to confirm the brilliant job you do and yep if there are any ideas people might have to help you in the future. Calvin has done a grand job with the registration mate :)

Yep only a matter of days now fella. Looking forward to it. Weather looking alot better than last year so should be a good turnout. We got a nice little number attending from this forum this year Kris so should be a great get together, and of course always good to see yourself and calvin and the Surrey Club....great bunch of folk !

Its gonna be a hot day so i would advise everyone to bring some sunscreen with they if they melt in the sun like I do, as not much shade at The Ace !!

For those who dont do Capri facebook i will add an updated copy of the list for the carpark. As far as I can see all the forum chaps seem to be listed but in case not nows the time to check. Still a couple of spots free but 35 Capris is still a nice number and usually a few turn up on the day. Should be a cracking day and really looking forward to it. I will post up details of the South Mimms meet up/convoy in next couple of days for those wanting to meet up en route

Here is the car park list. Check you guys are on it. If not get in touch with Calvin.

Thanks for continuing to arrange this Kris, always a great day out! Calvin has done a great job organising it this year, only thing I would say is that there isn't a great deal of advertising (that I've seen) and can be quite hard for some people to find out - saw a few posts on facebook when Calvin was posting the list for the car park saying it was the first some people have heard of it which is a shame if we could get a bigger turnout but that's just me being super picky :lol:
