    Well what a great Day, Thanks to Liam Caroline and Matty for organising it. Lovely to See Miller1098, Hugh and Sarah, Ningo, John and Denise. and of course Brian and Julie who were with us at Newark last weekend. It was Frankie's inaugural Cruise with the EAC, we do hope he enjoyed driving round with Z3cade in his ///M, I for one, had difficulty keeping up, but only because Macca had his foot on the brake all the time, :ymdevil: A big thanks to Mark and Michelle for coming to Frankie's Rescue and giving him a bed last night.

    We wish Frankie well and hope he has a safe journey home. And yes, Aceman, Frankie did wear the T-shirt today.:)

    A big thanks to everyone who made the day so special.:cool:

    Commiserations to Mint who not only had problems with his Zed and was forced to come in his daily driver and then got stuck at the Barrier at the beginning of the cruise and to Ningaloo, who came but couldn't find us in the harbour café car park.:sorry:

    Pictures to follow, when we've recovered.

    Mike and Sandy

    Another great day and the weather was brilliant. Sorry you missed us Ningaloo we were in the Whitwell car park. Was it Macca with his foot on the brake or Mary?
    Great to meet everyone and those who traveled a long way to meet up.

    I really wish I could have made this today. It would have been cheaper as I stayed home and did my washing instead. All good till the washing machine went bang and almost caught fire.

    I wondered if you might have done him one. Looks great Quality as usual.

    Huge :thankyou:to Liam and Caroline for arranging a great day :)
    Great to see old friends and make new ones, really enjoyed catching up with everyone.

    Good to meet up with Frankie- a great guy, safe trip home Frankie.

    Yes I got stuck at the barrier, the machine ate my ticket and by the time I got the barrier raised you had all disappeared - so I didn't even start the cruise let alone not keep up:(

    Sorry I couldn't have been there. It would have been nice to have said a final farewell.

    Aceman. That was a very nice gesture to make that T, and one that I'm sure he'll treasure. Hat's off to you.

    Looks like you all had fun.

    :)

    Thanks to all for the comments!
    Was a great day, just glad you all enjoyed it.
    Nice to meet some new faces and it was a pleasure taking Frankie on the cruise. Great guy ;)
    Frankie shot a lot of video on the run so hopefully see some when he gets home.
    Mint I don't know what happened at the start I'm sorry you missed the run.

    Again great company and great cars!
    Never a dull day when were all together, look forward to the next meet!!

    Liam
