If I do have my lefts and rights wrong some poor people might end up in Leighton Buzzard and that would not be good... I know, I once lived there...


And frequented the strip joint there ;)

If I'm leading the pack we may end up gate crashing Woburn Safari Park :)

Its a shame but i wont be able to make it down in time for the convoy drive (still havent done one yet).

Naturally being the show season from hell for me (just bad luck this year) i am working that saturday until 4pm :evil: So will be travelling down after work snd staying over saturday night. Im going to try and borrow a tent from my mate at work so i dont need to sleep in the xm. Failing that, the xm it will be.

Im looking forward to it and as i have another car to do this week, hopefully ill have a bit of pocket money with me?.....

It will be good to see "the faces" again and some new ones...jackson?

Vince,

Let me know if you get stuck for a tent, I've just bought a new one and I could lend you a 2 man if you need it

Hang on, just realised we'll be going through Bletchley won't we? Crickey that place is rough! Best make sure the door locks work and bring a stab vest. An anti-melon helmet would be a good idea what with the riots they had last year! Tow ropes too so if someone does break down we don't have to remain exposed for long and can quickly extract them from the dangerzone. Perhaps we should set up a triage centre in Ikea's car park in case there are any wounded?

Yes, no way to avoid it really... Unless we can borrow a load of Chinooks from the RAF and have us airlifted in...

I did ask if we could have a police escort. That request was turned down on grounds of too much risk. I'm now in negotiation with the SAS...

Not even Luton can prepare you for the roaming gangs of melon wielding hoodlums they have in Bletchley!
As many as two windows lost their lives last year in the Bletchley riots. Please, a minutes silence for the fallen windows.

Yep, I'll pop the info below from earlier in the thread:

Cooked Buffet Breakfasts are available on Saturday and Sunday Mornings (from 8am to 10am) at the Shoulder of Mutton Pub next to the Rally Site (£4 per head).

Light refreshments will be available throughout the weekend from the hall kitchen too...

Is anyone travelling up from the Reading/M4 area on Saturday and fancies going in convoy? (This is partly because I am completely disorganised, tired out, and need a guide)
