Hi all,

We are starting to assemble at the hotel, so here are some piccies. Unfortunately it's raining, but a few pints will make that irrelevant.

About 10 cars here already, couple of Z4's plenty of Z3's and even a Z3 Coupe :D

OK, so what time do they send you to bed after throwing the ball at each other for a while?
And can I get placement for my old mum there?

Quick update...

I haven't been on a cruise with such diversity of Zeds. Green for once the most popular colour, with 4 in total. No yellow, and only one silver. What is the world coming to! Weather has been as good as it could have been with intermittent rain, but enough time to lower the hoods as well. Bloody good day all round!

Here's some of the cars at the coffee break...

Stunning view from the hotel!


Car park filling up nicely, but more to come...


Circling the wagons, err Zeds before setting of


Zed Driver Bear came along too.


Waiting for a late arrival.


Pub. We stopped at pubs. Lots of them. This particular one we stopped at after waving at RodsZ3.


Mandatory Mozza content.


What a traffic jam consisting of too many Zeds on a country lane looks like. ~x(


Don't make any loud noises, the natives look pretty mean. :-ss


Winner of the draw for a set of Silverstone Classic tickets provided by Westerly BMW. This is one of the sales guy (right) and his partner who joined us for the day on his first car club cruise. Poor sod had to use his company Z4 for the day!


Winner of "who traveled the furthest" prize, again provided by Westerly BMW - 358 miles each way! I think the EAC may recognise this couple?

A big THANK YOU to Duncan for organising a brilliant weekend. The right combination of cruising, :coolsteer) 'pushing on' (thrashing), tea/coffee stops, lunch breaks and with two great evenings in the hotel socialising with new and old friends. A great time was had by all. We got home @ 9:30 last night - very tired hence this post this morning.

So, Thanks Duncan, Hazel and Gary - it was a superb time and I'm looking forward to seing you all again soon.

Cheers, Dave & Pauline

Again, just to say a huge thanks to Duncan, Hazel and Gaz for such a well planned, enjoyable weekend - along with a great bunch of ZedFiends!

Heather and I had a great time and, sprints and hillclimbs permitting, hope to take in a few more cruises.

Did someone say there was a speed limit over Exmoor?

If anyone's interested, I've posted a separate topic about where the first few events I'm entering take place.

Happy motoring
