    Hi everybody, A big thankyou to @t-tony and Shirl for a wonderful welcome and a special thanks to Shirl for the Z dessert, key Lime pie, lovely, it was so delicious, we are hopefully looking forward to it again next year. We would also like to say what stars the staff of the 'White Swan' are for putting up with us all. If anyone is thinking of coming along next year, I can tell you, this is one meet we wouldn't miss, worth driving 750 miles for!!!. If we didn't get to speak to you this time we apologize, but we'll catch up with you at another meet. To those we have already got to know, it was so nice to see you all again.

    Hopefully pictures on tomorrow, after a good night's sleep!!

    Mike & Sandy

    Thanks Tony & Shirley for all your work to make the meeting such a success. We enjoyed meeting everyone and being able to put faces to the names. Thanks Tony for recommending The Black Swan b&b it is fine! The owner has an MX5! (We were the only customers in pub.) Looking forward to next year. Alan & Maxine

    Thank you Alan, likewise it was really nice to meet you and Maxine today. Also thanks for a good revue for the Black Swan, The Ingleby was my local as a youth, I was born and raised in Marton, but like most village pubs these days it's not the place it was. I hope it didn't spoil your evening. We look forwards to meeting you both again, if it's here next year that'll be good. Thank you for your support today, hope you have a good run back home tomorrow.:)

    Tony.

    Well done Tony and Shirl. Looks like a great day was had by all, topped off by fabulous weather. Love the desserts. What a bonus! Much appreciated and enjoyed I bet.
    Sorry we're unable to make a few meets - weekends are being eaten up by endless university open days at the moment. The joys of parenthood.

    Great meet today thanks Tony and Shirl.
    Sorry I couldnt stay but had 2 dogs and 4 parrots waiting at home. Trouble with having your own business, Had a great day, great drive and great weather and ofcourse not forgetting the great company. Nice to meet you all , will see you again next year. Need to add a few miles to the baby, doubled the mileage for this year today!
    Lovely to see all the Zeds today looking pristine. just lovw them..... Complaint from my mum (AKA my little conscience) that you "cant get anything in these blooming things, even a bag of crisps wont go in the glove box!" :bashhead:

    Did want to ask some advice on my alarm but forgot!!! lol, never mind can wait.

    Lisa and Roz (aka my conscience)

    @t-tony and the wizard key lime baker... Great to meet you at last. Great day and a great route with the extended upgrade from @Grumpy lol.. Good run back in just over 3 hours .. So no complaints .. Avoided the traffic bottlenecks too. I will add some photos when I download later.. Great day, Great company and good food all round too.

    We managed to find some hilly and twisty bits Dino, the flat, boring (and faster) bit of Lincolnshire is out towards the Fens. Along the "cliff" out of Lincoln is fairly consistent for a good few miles.

Also thanks to all that made Tony and Shirl's massive efforts worthwhile. Lastly thanks for another fine meet Tony and Shirley. All the months of prep have again come to fruition with everyone enjoying your company and hospitality. Hope I can make it one year. JIM
