RIght, not sure where to start but I will take the weather, forecasts wrong again and Saturdays showers were something much worse as plenty of water and bluster resulting in us getting wet and at one point all taking a leg of the joined up gazebos to stop them taking off ! Sunday was supposed to be dry with rain later but again more rain than expected came down so we actually finished much earlier than we normally do.
Given the conditions I think we did well to get the jobs done over the 2 days with plenty of T4
sessions, fan changes and repairs, on the spot VIS (Variable Intake System)
motor repairs, airbag light faults fixed, handbrake compensators fitted, and lots of advice for members to take away with them for jobs not done at this meet. I am sorry we didnt get around too any powerfold mirrors installations but given that we do it by taking the doors off it wasnt sensible to start given the rain as the car interiors would have been at risk, so they will have to be done at the next Nano meet if they are not done before.
The food at the pub on Saturday evening is unfortunately getting worse, so we need to address that for the next meet, not sure what that will mean yet but it will be discussed with the Nano elders and we will come up with a solution between us all, we did try a late evening BBQ for the first time at this meet and it seemed to go down well so that could be a possibility.
We had a few members attending their first meet and it was nice to meet you all and I hope you return when we have better weather. Also good to meet up with familiar faces and a special mention for Jurgen who had come over from Germany to attend in his TF, and who managed to get the roof down for all of 30 minutes.
Thanks to everyone at the meet who chipped into to help with any of the jobs done, and a special thanks to crew members Duncan, Dave (Takestock ) Steve ( Arctic ) who all worked tirelessly to help members and send them away happy, and I cant forget Marina for supplying us with hot drinks and cooking breakfast for those of us in tent village on sunday morning, and David ( Dattrike ) for bringing a lovely MG Rover chocolate cake made by his daughter, and not forgetting Robert ( Raustin on club forum ) for sending those lovely cakes
Pictures will also be on the Nano website in due course.
All in all another enjoyable meet despite the weather so here's to the next one
