    Just a quick word to all about our first Zed meet here in Ireland ;)
    the Zed scene is not so big here in wee Ireland so we werent expecting miracles and at the moment we are just trying to get our name out there to get as many people involved as we can and to also get a members base here in conjunction with .ORG so we can have a few cross the water meets etc ;)
    Anywho, today was a great success in all our eyes, everyone enjoyed themselves and we made a couple more Zed friends for our future meets, again the guys and girls i met today were lovely, a great bunch of enthusiasts and i hope we can grow strong as a group and help each other out and have lots of fun on our Zed journey :)

    so enough waffle from me, i will let the pictures do the talking :thumbsup:

    few pictures here taken by Mark and Trevor also :thumbsup:

    Let it build slowly so everyone jells and soon it will begin to blossom! I think six cars for your first is pretty impressive! JIM

    Its amazing how something like a car can end up forming such formidable comradeship. Looks like the first meet was a great success. :thumbsup:

    Well done for organising David! As I've always said to people it only takes two cars to make a meetup, so 6 is really good :)

    I'm sure if we keep plugging away at this we can arrange an Irish Zed Fest one day... ;)
