    Nice - positive input, and what's stopping you dragging your arse down sarf then? after all, the southerners manage to make their way up to shakey and santa pod. Plus, nobody's gonna blow a gearbox while scoffing turkey.

    Maybe not but I don't complain about it, my personal commitments are just that - personal. As much as I'd like to travel the country, filming events etc, I just can't. I won't be able to make it to the christmas bash either.

    So what was the point of that post then Frankie?

    Not really mate. Im making the trip from Yorkshire. Yeah it's not geographically central but we all drive volvo's that are designed to be mile munchers as well as toys. 150 miles for me each way but will be a good opportunity to put some faces to names etc that I'd not likely meet at a meet locally


    Graham that's just wrong.
