Congratulations guys on your first meet. Very nice pics and a great selection of desirable cars too. How come you didn't come down to Oxford, would have been brill to see you there?


Regards

i think we felt it was time to make the 1st meeting of EMEG happen, also it was a lot closer to home which made it easier for all of us to get it in the bag

me neither, but what are the odds of getting a professional photographer on a sunday at about 5pm to get a couple of pictures taken for free, he could have used his tripod though

I'm sure the photographer was trying to make a quick buck when he offered to use his professional camera, I'm more than happy that he used our cameras!

Great pictures and a fab day, well overdue having talked about meeting up for some time. I have to apologise to the others because after intitially suggesting to meet this sunday, I forgot to check the forum and see if the meet was on! :devil: Good job your text arrived Pete as I was starting up the engine!

Great location with a good selection of roads to get there on, and how nice was that National Trust Warden to let us park up and take a few pics. Did anyone put a donation in the tin?! :lol:

Looking forward to the next one when hopefully Steve in his Essex and the guys from Chesterfield way will join us.

p.s. Mat I seriously considered Oxford but having been away for three weeks and also missing the booking dead line I needed to be more local, next year hey!

congatulations on a succesful first meet, may you have many more

Sorry i didn't make the meeting and its only 10 mins from where I live........

I pomise to check the forum more often - too much time trying to forget my accident and now looking for a GT3 !!

Just got to get a garage built now !!! - know any cheap reliable builders??

I can't seem to download/view the pics. I always used to be able to. Any ideas???

Anyway, better get ready for work, but hope to meet with you guys soon
