If I can come with 2 doors less than the rest... I'd be interested.

The Brown Girl just may not yet  be drivable by then. Heat has negative motivational effects on me hence 2+ months of absolute inactivity (need to fix the steering coupler and weld and mount the "WHY?" exhaust piece for RWC)

You are welcome at Club Carl weekends, I am out this weekend but 23rd March OK (not 24th) other times are fine at this stage.  If you wish we could do a morning coffee like last time?

Nathan, didn't know you were in town, welcome :)

(Been away from the forum for a while so a bit to catch up on)

Welcome back Carl!  I'm doing shift work now so I'm not available every weekend.  And from what I hear Nathan's flying to n fro, so he's not around on weekends either.  So what's the chances of a mid-week catchup?

BTW I'm definitely available on the weekend of 6th or 7th April, so I think we should lock that one in early....

Oops, I posted same thought on the old blog before reading this one. I'm in, except I can't do the weekend of 6/7 April.  I can do Saturday of the following week (13/4), or any time the rest of the year.  I enjoyed the great espresso that cold, sunny, winter morning of the last meet.  Would like to show you the 280SE and get some advice on fixing the longish list of fairly minor things (yes, Djenka, the 'why?' y-joint is one) that need putting right.

Carl has my email and mob.

Yours in Joyce,

PG

Well we can't please everyone, but it'd be nice to have as many people as possible.  Is anyone else available after 5pm during the week?

I can do midweek also - it's just the Saturday 6 April I can't do at all, and Sunday 14 April may even be OK.  Just fix a time and place and I'll be there if at all possible.

What we could do is a weeknight pizza evening at the factory if you like?
