I know this pub...used to meet with the Scimitar folk there many years ago when we lived nearby in Akeley Buckingham.

Seems we are once again not able to join SMS for this one either as we are attending the last of the seasons European events. Don't plan to do so many next year so hope to attend more frequently then.

Have fun

Thanks Nick.......Sadly we will be in London for the next Thursday meet too. Son in law birthday.......Richard has put the article up on past events I wrote about the Swedish journey. Lots of photos and a couple of videos of the MG racing 'R's. They are great trips and we feel lucky doing them, something to do with being retired I guess!

As I have said before though..'Don't rush to get there' (retirement) it comes around soon enough......

Life....as they say...better to journey than to arrive if you know what I mean..Ha ha

Excellent stuff. I take it you'll be going straight to the venue, or are you like Nick and will come to our convoy start just for the drive?!?! Rolling Eyes

Is it OK for me to bring my mate George if he's up for it? He's a car nut.

Another good meeting with lovely weather. Thanks to Lee for suggesting The Folly. We had plenty of space for our line-up in the car park and the food was not only very nice, but very good value for money!

I've updated the website with pics from today here.

I've also finally got round to doing a small review for the Wheels in Winslow event and BritCars'09 if you wish to take a look...

Looks like all had a good day.

We had a meal at the Sondes Arms in Rockingham after todays BTCC action. Good food, decent sized car park and the landlord's a car nut. Worth considering for a future meet if it's not too far north.

I know that pub very well... Right at the bottom of the hill, overlooked by the castle! In the early days of the MG 'M' Group, we had our rallies in the castle grounds and when staying over, we'd run down the hill... and crawl up it! Laughing

I don't think it's too far for our next Northants regional meeting, which will be November. In fact, we could combine it with a trip the castle for an early Christmas experience. Have a look at their website.

Cracking meet-great location, good food & top people

I've put a post in another section about the group buy on SMART repairs a couple of us spoke about.
