  9. As recommended by @Andrew C and others, our July venue will be The Anglers Inn, Guildtown, PH2 6BS (http://www.theanglersinn.co.uk/) Located a few miles North of Perth, the Inn sits on the A93, the main route North towards Blairgowrie, Glenshee etc. and will be a good take off point for an afternoon tootling around our favourite roads up in the hills. I understand that the owner Phil is something of a car enthusiast and is looking forward to our visit and a good turnout. The usual arrangements apply - arrive around 10.00, park round the back (mind the high kerbs on the way in) have a bit of a conflab and sit down for breakfast (full cooked, rolls etc) at 10.30. Nearer the time we can post up a suitable meeting point (probably bottom end of M90 somewhere) and we'll attempt a convoy and coordinated arrival. If @bingoking could do a mail out to the LEGS list I'd be very grateful. As usual we need to give our host a rough guide on numbers, so please add your name below. Cheers. 1&2: Mark plus 1
  10. This event is organised by David [email protected] full details on Lotus Ecosse Facebook page If anyone from North of the Forth wants to travel in convoy please PM John McDonald @Johnny5 to work out where to meet up and what time to leave, remembering that the Queensferry Crossing and the Edinburgh City Bypass might be busy on Friday evening.
  11. Ok will come for breakfast meet as I can now not do Thirlestane must get home for surprise BBQ
  12. Still not registered frustratingly - I’m out sadly. Have a great day and see you again at another meet. Is there a calendar for the rest of the year that I’ve missed?
  13. See you at Hermiston 9am! X1 Where abouts at Hermiston Gait are we meeting ?
  14. Hope you get it sorted today and we see you at the breakfast meet. The Exile looks stunning by the way. I had a similar problem with my Exige although it didn't stop me driving it, when I got the V5 from DVLA the colour was shown as Grey whereas my car was Yellow.
  15. Would love to attend this but my new Exige it turns out hasn’t been registered by the DVLA after a clerical screw up, so now waiting for confirmation as to when I can drive it again.......only at Lotus could this happen I hear you say!! Esprit MOT ran out a couple of months ago and haven’t got round to renewing.....well that’s not true I took it last week and a car was stuck on the ramp so I had to take it away - so overall......not happy😤 I was told Exige could be sorted today so if I do hear that it is I will be coming on Sunday......but the realistic likelihood is that this situation will drag on. Plenty of time to take photos of them both though🙄
  16. I'll be there for something at last this year! Other (better half) is working however so I'm free to head up to the show after. 1&2 Brian & Jackie 3&4 Mark and Jane 5 Duggie 6&7 Steve and Julie if the weathers good (we're planning on going to the Thirlestane show, but it's a long way to go if the weather is crap!) 8 Al.

  19. Entry for Thirlestane finally confirmed so we'll have to give the breakfast a miss unfortunately. Anybody coming to the show afterwards is more than welcome to bring a bacon buttie (or several) to the Lotus display area if they feel the urge, .
  20. Posted on Behalf of William Bird of The Fennel Restaurant. Some of you will remember that after breakfast at the Fennel Restaurant we visited the family home to view the collection of AC cars there and many of you that attended will have met June. You are invited to join us for a very special gathering of Classic, Sports, Supercars & Motorbikes on Sunday the 10th of June at 8 for 8:30am in memory of a truly remarkable woman. June Rose Bird passed away in January just over two years after being diagnosed with vascular dementia. In her honour and in support of her chosen charity, Alzheimer’s Research, we are hosting this Cars & Coffee fundraiser and hope that as many of you as possible will come out in support and make donations either on the day or on line at: https://www.justgiving.com/DriveforJune June was never happier than when she was out for a run in one of the old cars which through my fathers passion for ACs was a regular occurrence. Not content to be a passenger she was a member of the institute of advanced motorists and held several trophies for classic motor racing including a 1st at Brands Hatch running the Le Mans Ace. Having attended motoring events and races all over the world she met, made friends with and was by all accounts held in high regard by, some of the greatest names in motorsport from Jack Sears to Stirling Moss. All her life, despite suffering from severe arthritis first diagnosed at age 13, June supported every cause and every soul she could, from helping to set up GRAIN (Gordon Rural Action and Information Network) spending hours and hours fighting for the rights of others to doing meals on wheels, providing respite care to families - the list is almost as endless as she was tireless in her fight especially for the underdog. It is in honour of this, her legacy, that we aim to raise the relatively humble amount of £2000 through this event for Alzheimer’s Research to aid the fight against this cruellest of diseases. We therefore ask that you come willing to donate what you can to the charity workers who will be on hand on the day for the collection. We hope that you can join us, if you cannot then please do what you can, either by donating on line or even by just sharing this post with friends or motoring groups that may be interested... that link again: https://www.justgiving.com/DriveforJune And on the day itself, go out wherever you are and ‘turn the wheel’ as June would have done, sparing a thought for her, for all the others lost not only to dementia but whose lives have been cut short in so many cruel ways. Hope to see you on the 10th around 8am Many thanks in advance, Bill. Drive for June - details: Please note various groups including the Drivers Collective and Guzzler Fizz are organising a preamble at Stonehaven Harbour for 6am 😊 8:00 am - arrivals start 8:30 am - everyone arrived & parked With a high turnout expected the car parks all the way up to the free area past M&S will almost certainly need to be used - (partly why we’ve said such an early time and a clear departure by 10am) so as not to inconvenience normal shoppers etc. We would also ask that everyone please respect disabled parking bays which may be required at any time... 💷 Charity volunteers will be shaking buckets... Breakfast is available in the restaurant from 8:30 but by BOOKING ONLY (01467 670065) Bacon rolls & coffee will be available outside from the grills under gazebos as a quick alternative to the restaurant. Caber Coffee will be on site (outside) for coffee & tea ☕️ 10 am - everyone heads off in your own groups to hopefully enjoy a run (several of June’s favourites listed below) or home to get on with your day Hopefully by this time we will have successfully raised over £2000 for Alzheimer’s Research, seen some lovely machinery & had a brilliant morning with an incredible turnout. But what if it rains? As my mother always said: “Well then my dear, we get wet.” 🤞💜🌹
