Ok, that wasn't the most transparent way of describing it .. blame it on sitting with my leg in the air and strong painkillers !
 
Richard will email all on that 'processing' list to offer confirmed places until we are full, so watch your inbox !
 
Basically, you're in ..
 
cheers, Maurice

Weather for Sunday looking good, sunny intervals, 24C, light winds ..
 
Richard is currently cleaning the lane with a toothbrush, such is his level of commitment to putting on a great bash !
 
I look forward to meeting / seeing everyone - I'll be the one with a ski boot on one leg .. ;)
 
cheers, Maurice

Well, we had a great time, escaped without a deluge, had a fabulous gathering of 25 beautiful 993s .. there was an interloper, as Sarah Adams-Diffey (one of our Concours Judges) popped along in her Bugatti 35B ..

 
 
 I have added a gallery of photos to https://www.porscheclubgb.com/regions-registers/registers/classic/993/galleries/993-25th-anniversary-garden-party or navigate there from Communities on the Home page. I must issue an apology for a few touches of psychedelic colour, I had an issue with camera firmware which meant I lost the RAW files from the 'outdoor studio' setting, and every now and again the sun would pop out in full strength in conjunction with a bright paint job to blow the highlights of the jpegs. When the cars arrived in batches I didn't have time to check each exposure while hopping about on one leg .. so sorry ..  ..!
 
Liz & Richard Pugh had organised a fantastic band of helpers and put on the most brilliant day, and everybody present was immensely grateful for their incredible hospitality. And there were prizes ! Quiz winner, furthest travelled, and two prize-winners of the Concours, both being TTs, the lovely and well-known Silver of Paul Keeling, and the deep Black belonging to Brucie, whose co-driver Sam Blomfield collected my unofficial award of 'Fashionista of the Day', with her Naval inspired jacket over denim shorts.
 
More follows ..

I have been trying to get various things together to celebrate this anniversary, (eg Silverstone Classic Display, European Gathering at OldTimer) none of which proved possible. Richard came to me offering to host a day, so it came together !
 
No, you certainly cannot purchase any photos ! I'll happily send an 8 MB or so jpg depending which camera it was ... just drop me an email 993@porscheclubgb.com ..
 
i look forward to '993s Hit the Big Screen' !
 
cheers, Maurice
