Wheely good builder! (4/6)



  1. The clocks change this w/e so we get to have a drive to the meeting in daylight, looking forward to seeing as many as possible attend the Church Mouse, Chester Moor DH23RJ from around 7pm.
  2. Time for our regular monthly get together, hoping for a better turn out than last month - let's see if we can at least double that attendance. See you at the Church Mouse,Chester Moor,Chester-le-Street. DG23RJ from around 7pm
  3. Time to resume the meetings after the holiday break, hope you all had a great Christmas and best wishes to you all for this new year .The meeting will be on Tuesday 31 January at the usual venue, the Church Mouse, Chester Moor DH23RJ, from around 7pm. Hope you all can make it so we can catch up on what's been happening and plans for the future.
  4. For the last six or seven years I have been having a run up to the Borders on New Year's Day, this year I put it off till today as snow was forcast for the Carter Bar area for yesterday. I set off with the usual no doors or roof after having to defrost the car as it was only 2 degrees! I went up the A696 to A68 as far as Jedburgh having to be very careful in any shaded areas as there were patches of ice in a lot of places. I hoped to stop for a coffee in Jedburgh but everything was closed so I carried on through Kelso, Coldstream, Duns and into Berwick. I got my cup of coffee and filled up with petrol having done 125 miles so far. The temperature had warmed up to 4 degrees but the ice patches remained in the shade. Came back down the A697 through Wooler and home having covered 175 miles in 4 hours, not one car overtook me and I only had to pass four cars on the whole route. No such thing as being too cold just wear suitable clothing, Big smile on my face l loved every minute of it.
  5. I have just been out in the kit and I didn't like the freeing fog!!! So I am coming down in the Z4, at least it has a demister that will warm the screen. See you all later Alan
  6. This will probably be the last meeting of the year, so looking forward to seeing you all at the Church Mouse, Chester Moor, DH23RJ. Hopefully we might get some dry weather as I hope to give the kit a run out.
  7. On the Grosvenor to web site they say that Stoneleigh is no longer viable as Show site, so no more Stoneleigh.
  8. At last nights meeting we were joined by the North East 7.5 Club who attended with a variety of Seven based cars from the Sunderland and surrounding areas. It was so good to see the carpark full of sevens after the fall in attendances at the Church Mouse. We have agreed to work with them on any future events, which should be to both groups advantage.
  9. Tuesday!!! Our next meeting is on TUESDAY the 25th of October at the Church Mouse Chester Moor Chester le Street DH23RJ from around 7pm, I am bringing the kit whatever the weather, as I need to put some miles on the mods I have done to the engine. See you all there. By the way the meetings are held on TUESDAY
  10. Sorry Allan, I won't be able to make the meeting, catch up with you on TUESDAY the 25th at the Church Mouse. Hope you enjoyed your Irish trip. Alan
