    Many thanks to Tony and Shirl for setting this up again. Loved the 'treats'! Also thanks to the other 'leaders' , the whole day went without a hitch and of course 'the sun shines only on the zedders'. A totally enjoyable day.:happy: DSCF1410.JPG

    Thanks for a another superb today @t-tony and Shirl. Myself and Jue have had a lovely day. Weather was excellent (booked by my good self!) food was great, the key lime pie was something else. Should have nicked a couple to bring home :D and the company as always spot on. Great to see @MaryMac out and about and being so upbeat. Keep it up Mary :). I am well aware I will never be allowed to live down missing a turn on the run and sending the 7 in my group on an extra 12 miles of superb unspoilt roads and beautiful countryside! :D. Great to see old buddys as always and we seem to be getting some dedicated newbies having a good time and wanting to do more in the future. Hopefully we haven't scared you off to much!
    So once again a huge thank you to @t-tony and Shirl and all invloved in making a great day. Here's to the next one. :thumbsup:
    A few to quality pics from me!:D

    Looks like you all had a great day with superb weather. Nothing like lots of Zedders with roofs down and having fun. Thanks all for posting lovely pictures.

    Was really fantastic to see everyone again!!

    I'd make a list of people that I want to specially thank for making me feel incredibly welcome despite this being my second meet but I know I'll forget someone.

    Here's some photographs I took today.

    Cracking pics Steve, Carrie and I had a fabulous day and thoroughly enjoyed the company yet again.
    A very well organised and enjoyable cruise thanks @t-tony and Shirl for that wonderful Key lime pie, I have never tried it before but it was delicious.

    What a fantastic day it's been, gorgeous sunshine and lots of friendly faces both old and new. Me and Shirl have enjoyed arranging the meet and treats over the past weeks and months. Special thanks to @Grumpy , @Bozzy , @Mint and @Rha for help with the route planning and leading groups today, and giving us encouragement all the way. The run was very nice and everyone I spoke to enjoyed it, only 39.5 miles (for most of us ;)) and at the half way stop you could see the start point in the distance, near to Cottam Power Station in the centre of the picture.

    Fabulous food as usual from Paul and Julie at the White Swan, great meals and great value. A few pictures of the line-up.

    As for the sweet treats, Shirl had been very busy, bless her.

    Thank you all for turning up and making today a very special day for us all. We will need to think of what to do to make next year's meet better if not bigger as the pub can't cater for too many more, but barring any disasters there will be a meet here next year because many of you asked us to do it again. THANK YOU ALL.:thumbsup:

    Tony and Shirl.

    ps. Just for the people who may like to know, today we had 30 Z's in total, a Lotus and a - - - - - - -

    What a great day thanks again to Tony and Shirl, the meet up at McDonald's Ollerton as allways was a great success thanks to (Grumpy) Dave, and the run from the pub was even better thanks to Tony and Shirl, got a few pics so I'll put em up. Love driving round Lincolnshire. Got home with 327mls under my belt and every one worth while, nice steady drive home with my good friends from Aylesbury Stacey and Martin.
    Yes Tony, a nice steady drive home, got witnesses.
    First pic is a guess what pic, taken from the exact spot where it happened ( Jue )
