    So far only 3 members have contacted us to say they will attend.  The organiser wants to know numbers so if you are planning on going but haven't told us, could you please do so!  Thanks

    I'm local-ish but really sorry, not something that excites me or floats my boat.

    Problem is that when we ask members for what does excite them or float their boat the silence is usually deafening!

    I can sympathise with that. Damned if you do, damned if you don't. 
    The Pendennis day was good, but most other things have been a bit too far East for the Cornish fraternity. I think something that involves a Drive, a visit, some coffee or lunch, then a drive and a pint usually works.....Oh, and in Cornwall, in the dry, the sun helps too.....but not too hot or in July or August....everythings clogged up!

    Yes, the geography of the Region is always a problem.  We always welcome anyone who wishes to volunteer to lead these type of events locally!  We are more than happy to plan it all if we are given the ideas and subsequent support from members.

    If your short of numbers I will attend it also is not something that excites me having done the Pirelli visit at Burton before moving down but as I attend many things that really do appeal I feel we should support the club when asked.

    Alan, dont forget my idea of an in depth guided tour around Buckland Abbey. A couple of months ago the Jaguar d
    club did one here, and they had reserved parking near to the entrance, so lots and lots of interested spectators for their cars. I can arrange all of this. Plus on my tour I can get to some parts of the abbey closed to the public.

    Steve,Alan,
    Worth considering that I ran a day to Buckland Abbey on 11 Oct 2015, when I was organising the annual ' last trip of the season' to NT properties. I seem to remember we saw the Rembrandt self-portrait which was on display.  Not to say we shouldn't go again, at 3 or 4 years' distance and perhaps with special access.

    Yes Steve, I haven't forgotten.  On the ideas front I was referring more about the Region contingent to the west of the Tamar.......  Anyway, next April's scenic tour just announced should cover the Region from Exeter to Penzance for starters!

    I'm speeding because I have to get there before I forget where I'm going.

    Well, despite the "interesting" weather we had a great turn out.  Really interesting presentations from the two Pirelli chaps, a very enthusiastic welcome from Steve Andrews and his team and excellent spread of Cornish pasties, quiche and scones with clotted cream and jam.  The only blot was they put the jam on first...... The local journo was there so good press all round. 
    A very smart set up and, with the Pirelli offer, £100 off 4 tyres.  Full write up and more photos on the website soon

    A good get together, thanks for organising it Alan.
    They did us proud, the techie stuff was interesting and useful and the weather held for the trip.
    Did you see the westbound queue for the bridge on the way home??
