October Nano-meet by raistlin (Page 4 of 5)

Just back from food shopping for the meet - cost £91.77 !

I reckon that there are approx 22 members coming from both the club and the community so if everyone contributes £4 - £5 that should cover it always allowing for one or two members who for whatever reason cant make it on the day as planned.

There will be an " honesty " box on the food table and it will be the usual drill, I wont be chasing anyone for money but would be grateful if you would put your contribution in the box at some point - I will post up after the event how much was contributed in total and should there be any profit it will be donated

I have kept the food receipts should anyoine wish to see them, and items bought include, tea, coffee, milk, sugar, mince pies, biscuits, pork joints, bread cobs/buns, serviettes, apple sauce, plates, spoons and a few items i have probably forgotten about !

Pork Cobs/ Buns will be served at lunchtime, warm mince pies in the afternoon, tea and coffee all day on demand plus biscuits.

The weather looks to be holding out so look forward to seeing you all tomorrow, either for breakfast meeting at the Turf on th A5 for 9am or at the meet itself from 10am onwards

Planning is an unnatural process, much better to just get on with things, that way failure comes as a complete surprise instead of being preceeded by a period of worry and doubt

Rob, I know you are keen to be seen to be above board in this but, I have to tell you mate, that in my view, the ethos of the nano-meet is such that I'd be extremely surprised and bitterly disappointed if anybody had the crass dis-courtesy to ask such a thing. As I said... in MY view.

Besides which, you provide the nosh with Jayne's unstinting help and if anybody doesn't like the idea they can always bring their sandwiches :lol:

I, for one, will be partaking of the grub provided and will be one of the first to get my cash in the box, considering it a bargain and thanking you and your family for the time, effort and initial investment involved. :)

Like wise Rob. Really appreciate the hot grub you provide, but also can't make it tomorrow due to a fuel leak, so will pay my share. ;)

Have a great day guys. :(

Back home safe and sound, no overheating problems this time. :)

Thanks to Rob (Trebor) and the organising gang, I suppose that the Rainman will have to be now known as 'Sunny Jim' ;)

Good to see everyone again.
I don't like signatures, they take up too much screen space.

I should think so too. There were a number of VIS (Variable Intake System) motors in need of your gentle touch. I'd have had a go myself but was somewhat occupied with undoing Mr Bodgitts endeavours!

What a terrific day and outstanding weather :)

I don't know where the time went.

Thanks to Steve and Ian for the handbrake compensator mod. Handbrake feels spot-on now guys :)

I didn't have any major jobs to do today but was able to help out with one or two.

Once again, thanks to Jayne for the excellent catering.

Hope to see you all at the next one.

Sorry that the new electrickery project was not available Bernard but the modification to the PCB (Printed Circuit Board) track should be finished this week.

Nice to see friends old and new today.

Yes thanks, Dave. I fitted a Kenlowe in the end in spite of finding a 2-speed at the breakers. I shall keep that for replacing the 3-speed on the V6 when that dies.

'Only' took me 2 days to fit the fan and sort the lower grille. :roll: The grille took most of the time though, to be fair.

Thanks to everyone who attended today and got themselves an October suntan, i will pass thanks onto the chef who has gone for an early night after-a few hours in the kitchen.

Members today came from far and wide, a lot of locals obviously. but also members from Manchester, Liverpool, Hereford and Number 6 from France making this an international occasion ! ( sorry if i have missed anyone )

Also a big thanks for financial contributions to the financial " honesty box ", there was £115 in total, so i recouped my outlay for the food of £92 and also gave £10 towards the fuel in the generators which were running most of the day, that leaves £13 by my reckoning which i will carry over to the next one if there are no objections

Yet another superb nano-meet, thanks to Rob for the catering, Mick and Lyden for genny etc, Woolysox for gazebo. Thanks to Artic for the handbrake cable mod, one click now is the norm, car was never like that from new. I believe there may be photographs of how to change a front light bulb the easy way with thanks to David. Why remove the inspection cover when it is much more fun removing the front bumper.
We also re-cycled a front bumper.......

Here's to the next meet

Oh yes and on the M6 heading back to sunny Nantwich, I passed a gritter........

:cheers:
