Hi.

Well only two more sleeps till The Ace :)

Guys its gonna be a hot one so bring suncream if like me you suffer from sunburn and a hat too !!!

Right for those chaps wanting to meet up for a little convoy to The Ace from South Mimms Services the plan is simple. Talking with John we aim to leave there at about 1030. No point getting to The Ace too soon before 11am as we just cant get in and could end up clogging up the road outside. We just want to arrive after 11am so we can drive straight in and park up !

When you turn into the services at South Mimns drive straight down to the far end towards the exit and park up there. There is usually more space down that end beside the exit so is a good spot to park up and meet !

So really lookiing forward to seeing everyone. Should be a cracking day. When i last looked think the carpark list had filled up with late reservations so should be near on 42 capris which i think is the limit.

So as said pretty simple really... meet at South Mimms to be setting off for about 1030. Methinks Jason is getting there a bit earlier as he has the dreaded Dartford Crossing to get through so he is taking a leaf out of my book and getting there extra early :) I might aim to get there about 0930-0945 to have a coffee with him and his dad so any time from 0930 onwards I would guess.

Really looking forward to seeing everyone again :)

Anyway until then Sat.....

All the best

Nick

Nice one Jason. I will prob get there not long after you mate. South Mimms is only 15mins from me if that at that time of the morning. Looking forward to seeing you. I am getting hungry thinking of the Extra Large Ace Full English now :)
