    Yes, that's a good idea, Shelly, we can vary the route a little and go either Sunday in June or 3rd August haven't looked at any other dates. Mike & I can't do from 4th to 19th July as on hols then, but if those weekends are better, please don't worry about us, but as you all know we would rather be able to come! We have Silverstone on 25th, 26th & 27th July.
    Any other ideas?

    ;)Yeah we're on our hols nearly same dates as Mike and Sandy in July , but same goes for us if those dates are better for everyone else please go ahead , but like Sandy said don't worry about us , I will look at the calendar later to see what dates are good for us , hopefully we can all make a Sunday in June , looking forward to it already :)
    Hopefully we can fit a few ( lots more lol) meets in before this :)

    We've got a holiday booked on the last 2 weeks of June so those are out for us. But perhaps we could arrange something early June...something along the lines of the "Hurley Burghley" run mixed with the Rutland cruise?

    Well guys & gals, as we've done the Silverstone weekend 3 years running now ( 2011 non-Zed related, 2012 Zedfest with parade lap, 2013 'Zedfest' with 'aborted' parade lap) me & Karen are feeling we'd like a change this year. We fancy doing something new instead, for example, perhaps one of the 'Goodwood' weekends, which we've not been to yet.

    Thinking about what you have just said, Shaun, I think perhaps you are right. The Zed community in general, ought to find a venue that values it's attendance more than Silverstone appears to. Considering the number of Zeds that turn up at Silverstone, we get very little thought from the organisers, perhaps we need to find an independent venue that pays more attention to us. After all 200 plus Zeds represents a lot of income. We should not be jammed in some muddy field, the Ferraris aren't and I'm sure they don't pay any more than us.

    Perhaps if we get in touch with Goodwood, they might a suitable slot for us!! or maybe even Brooklands.

    Mike & Sandy

    Will probably go to the Duxford car show this year. Always enjoy it plus there's lots of space for us all and old whistler ;)

    I will be arranging something different when I have the time.

    It will be nice to try something new.

    Funny, Mary and myself was talking about this the other week and thought it would be good to go to Goodwood instead of Silverstone. So we are well up for a trip to Goodwood. I think things need to be booked soon as it gets full very quickly.

    That's us out then, as we're in the Peak District that week. Sounds like a good idea though :)
