    This is the third consecutive cruise arranged by Tony and Shirl that we have attended. Again they have excelled themselves. Many thanks.
    Thanks to Phil and Linda for leading our group and not getting us lost. Good to meet you all.
    Bertie loved the day as much as we did, he is knackered now for a change, no doubt he we be fully recovered and raring to go again tomorrow for the journey home, he loves being in his limmo.
    Thanks to all for making the day.

    Heartfelt thanks from me and Shirl to each and everyone of you for coming over to Torksey and supporting out annual event. We try to make this something of a social meeting not solely focused on driving these great cars which we all have in common.
    Each year it gets more difficult to better the previous one but we continue to try.
    Also, although several of you noticed that Jules at the pub was a bit stressed,

    ps. please don't be too hard on her as her most experienced helper recently retired so she was under pressure. Shirl has been over tonight with a Key Lime pie to show our appreciation.
    All in all another great day, we couldn't really have asked for better weather either, we have been lucky over the years.

    So, in no particular order, thank you.

    Apologies for not remembering everyone's name, my mind is a bit of a blurr especially as I had to revert back to type and actually repair a car today=))

    Once again our thanks to you all because this would not happen without all of YOU.:thumbsup:

    Tony and Shirl.

    ps. You know where we live so if you're passing please call in and say hello:thumbsup:

    Just one more thing, our little princess granddaughter Izzy came with our Gary to pick her favourite car out of all of us and she picked the red E89 of Alex (Alenod) and he won a box of chocolates. We hope to continue to involve youngsters in our meets.

    Just to say thanks from me and Stewart. As ever the Torsky meet was excellent and although this time I couldn’t get the hood down I thoroughly enjoyed the cruise. Took some pics but my phone and iPad have stopped talking to each other so maybe put some up later. Tony and Shirl spoilt us all again with a different take on the lake fish pie which actually was eaten with a spoon so big I couldn’t get it in my mouth.:whistle:Love this outing every time.:thumbsup:

    RHA,Roy.;) &Stewart.

    Mate as long as you come up here we will continue to try to improve. Really nice to meet Stewart (I appreciate his work with the Delphi). I hope you behaved on the A113* although I know you love that piece of road.;) Shame it wasn't just me and you :ymdevil:

    Tony.

    ps. I'll find you a shovel:thumbsup:

    Last but by no means least, Group 6 were quick off the grid and lead by Phil, with back marker being moi, neither of us having run the route prior to yesterday, we all had a great time exploring the Lincolnshire plains and pretty villages. A few pics and a quick question: what is the pretty stone that resembles Cotswold stone that we saw some of the buildings made from?

    Another great cruise Tony along with the usual first class hospitality. You shouldn’t worry about making it better (or even different) each year - both you and Shirl excel anyway. :thumbsup:

    Well whats more to say! @t-tony and Shirl, our thanks we had a great time :thumbsup::thumbsup: sorry we didn't come for the sweet treats but we had a bit of a journey ahead of us :( Thank you for a great day out.

    Also thanks @Jjim for leading our group around :thumbsup:
    Niall & Ali

    PS: Not surprised the lady at the pub was stressed that was a lot of lunches to get out, but the food was great, I had half a cow on my plate that didn't help the pre-wedding diet :rolleyes::rolleyes: couldn't fault it.


    Not sure what is going on with the photos?? but they wont load properly :whistle:

    Same problem loading my photos. Perhaps a technical glitch @GazHyde ?

    Here's a few pictures from me, as per usual I spent most of the day chatting including a Skype chat with @FRANKIE at lunch time. We got round quite a few people before losing connection.
    Waiting for hoards to return.
