Route info added to the booking thread :th:


Can I ask that people staying over at the hotel we have suggested in Flokestone, NOT to book it yet please :th:

If you just let us know on the booking thread if you want a room or two (before and after the trip) then i'll try and get us a group booking discount

Cheers all :)

Don't leave it to long bud as the train prices have already gone up.

Very sadly i wont be coming this year, no luck on the job front still so its a definite no no even as a passenger. What spare money I do have I want to put into finishing my tubby.

Mikey666 said to me a while back that he couldn't make it this year either :sad: Will both be back next year though :th:

Ok so there is WWM who is already on the list and Stew that are definates to make 7 in total so far

Blaster1 has dropped out but Trouble still wants to come in his own car. Unfortunately he can't confirm yet as he is moving house so will more than likely be a late entrance

There are also mr2big, d-peg and a couple of others that are maybe's

The last trip was 12 cars which ended up in us splitting up a few times and the rear cars playing a lot of 'catch up'. Michael did a brilliant job of keeping everyone together and knowing where to stop so people could catch up but he did the run a couple of times before the trip to familiarise himself with it. Unfortunately we don't have that this time so I think 7-10 cars is plenty as it will be difficult for the lead cars to make sure everyone is together and to make sure we are on track. We don't want to keep getting lost and ending up doing 400 miles extra because of it

I'm not saying that we don't want any more to come but its not the end of the world if its just us few :th:

Its a real shame that you and Mikey can't make it Carol :sad:
