Well, as recommended by Nick, I have sent off email requesting a place in the car park! Fingers crossed.
Looking through my diary, that weekend should be ok for me! :lowrider:

Hey Steve, thats brilliant mate !!! Nice one mate :)

If the weather is grand there is a really good turnout of Capri's and a great chance to catch up with old friends and new !! I will prob meet John at South Mimms Services so be great if you can join the convoy Steve.

All the best mate

Hi Nick. Good news, got a space at the ace! Received email other day confirmed it! I’ll drive up to South Mimms with you, let me know what time. I’m not going to Whitstable either as out night before but will go Herne Bay. Shame you can’t make it as it’s a great show along the front.
See you in a few weeks!

It's great that everybody so far has got a space in the main car park. Although I'm surprised as the registration process opened 3 weeks ago and there's only 40ish spaces available. I would have thought all the spaces would have been snapped up long ago.

Brilliant news about The Ace Steve ! Great news mate. :applaud:

Yep South Mimms will be the meet up. Should be a cracking day if the weather is kind to us. Yep gutted about Herne Bay as been there a couple of times and really like the seafront down there. I will see if I can swap shifts but that can be hard the way things are in work these days :(

Looking forward to meeting up again mate.

All the best

Andrew I reckon nearer the time a lot will decide to go just as a lot decided not to go last year due to the rain. Year before last the carpark was full and people were parking up opposite The Ace. Was an amazing turnout when you think some had to travel fair distances to get to it down the North Circular Road !! Hopefully nearer the time the numbers will increase, but maybe they have been creeping up without us knowing and there is already a healthy number of Capris booked in. Its a very chilled meet is this so I am not panicking yet on small numbers :lol:

All the best Andrew

Nick

PS It might just be Laser Page Forum members there. You will have to come now mate. We do welcome visitors from over that bridge :o :lol: :lol: :lol:

I know what you mean Tom. I hate the N. Circ too except when it leads me to The Ace !!! Hope to see you if you can make it fella :)


I've got the day off work so have sent off to book in, hopefully there's still spaces available. If there's a meet up from South Mimms I may join in if that's ok!

Hi All,

Yep, I'll be up South Mims too for the meet!!!! I would suggest as the Ace starts at 11AM and we know not to bother getting there before this, I would suggest approx 10AM or earlier and set off approx 10:30AM for a slow cruise :lowrider: down there??? Only a suggestion, I'm happy to fall in with everyone else of course...

Jason, Yep, I fully hope to have the Amp fitted by then and something else you might be interested in??? Look forward to catching up with everyone again, cheers for now,

John...
