    IMG_8348.JPG IMG_8349.JPG Thank you Tony & Shirl for all your organisation and the sweet treats. We are now at the Black Swan for the night, having covered 280 miles today and another 215 miles back home tomorrow. The rain held off and we really enjoyed the day. The meal at the White Swan was excellent and good value. Here are a few pics, I'm sure there will be better ones later. Alan & Maxine

    Well being first to leave in order to get a decent run home I thought I better leave some comments.
    Great day, great organisation,great meal, great route, and last but not least GREAT PEOPLE, can I say more ??

    Couple of pics that hopefully hasn't already been put up. What a great route bumps an all. This event is going to get bigger just hope Tony and Shirl can cope, the pub as usual was on the ball but I wonder how many more they could cope with.
    307mls today and the right foot gave the Z no mercy.

    Tony and Shirl can be very proud of themselves, that route took some real organising. Thank you also go to the team leaders who didn't apparently take one wrong turn, it's a miracle. :facepalm:............................=))

    Tony and Shirl. Thank you so much for a fantastic day. You really do organise down to the last dot. The sweet treat as always was delicious. The signs on route were brilliant and proper made me chuckle :mad:.
    Wish I'd have got pictures but we were past them and gone before we knew it. It's been great to see people again and i'd like to thank you all for making Roy and Jo so welcome in their Audi. He's already text me to say what a great day they've had.
    Here's some pics from me.

    Leaving Grumps towers this morning. How rude!!!

    Looks like you all had a great time....:thumbsup:

    Thought you would get a right little stiffy having your own personal A4 laminated parking sign, good job it did not rain, as the ink might have run and it would be unreadable....;)

    We had a UK Lotus on the NL run, spent more time looking at that as I know what a Z looks like.....;)
