Santa Pod anyone?
« on: 23 July 2006, 22:51:09 »

Just a thought, but who fancies a great day out and a general Omega meet at Santpod for one of their 'I like driving faster than Laidback' meetings? Dates to be arranged, but who's up for it?

Sounds like fun!  And as i'm only a few miles away it'd be rude not to attend.  Cant see the slush-box elite breaking any records but would be nice if a few chavaliers are there to beat :)

Faster than me??

Fin, you have now been a passenger with me and Mark... I am positively sedate compared to him!  :o

I'll be up for a get together down there sometime.... Jaime can bring his tech 2 along too! :)

just posted in the other thread, seams to be getting interesting with tents and staying overnight, maybe we should merge the threads?

If someone has space in their tent, payment could be made in beer  ;)
