Well, looks like the Sungods were listening when I planned the cruise!!!

:D :D :D

By all accounts it will be a lovely roof down day. I will be leaving home shortly, see you all at Newlands Corner (Drove Road car park).

Cheers

Just got back. Another great run, with perfect weather organised by Shaun. great route and a really nice pub. The food was excellent.:thumb:

Great to see Trev hanging precariously out the back and side of Shaun's Zed trying to get the best shots :)
A very good turn out and very nice company. Was passed by two Z8's, with Dutch plates, on A23 - very nice.

Will post more pics later.

Thanks to Shaun for organising & everyone for turning up. :drive

Hi Guys

Well done Shaun for a great day out and some perfect weather.

As always it is the people that make these events fun and we couldn`t have asked for a better crowd. Great to see some new faces at this meet and to meet up with the usual gang.

A very special personal thank you to Karen for her help in getting me up the gate with a combination of pushing and arse grabbing it certainly made my day..... :) :wink: ......god knows how I kept the camera steady..... :lol: :lol: :lol: ......you are definitely invited again.

Pics to follow shortly.......here`s to the next one.

Cheers

Trev

Hi Guys and Girls

I would just like to say what a lovely day and a great turnout :) !!!

Really good company and a great day out, I am pleased you all enjoyed the cruise and the Jack & Jill Inn.

As promised, I will put together another cruise for the end of August, keep your eyes peeled for the details.... Oh.. and don't be shy, get your names down nice and early for it 8-) .

In the meantime, the Fliegen Britten German weekend is in need of some more support, it is a superb venue and the roads are terrific.

Cheers for now, don't forget to post up your photos from today :thumb:

Shaun

Thanks Blaize (Trevor) for the suicidal photographic work on todays Sunday cruise and to the missus for the loan of the camera.... thankfully returned in one piece!!

Looking at the pictures it appears your efforts were well rewarded mate.

Despite the quick glance from the occupant of that nice striped Ford Focus and the strange feeling that you ended up with on your wind / sunburnt face which was peppered by half the fly population of Surrey and Sussex it was a great day out and a job well done.

Cheers for the help mate, well appreciated by all.

Agree with Shaun, Trevor took some great pictures today, we could not have got those on the road pictures without Trevor's hard work throughout the cruise. :bow

Great day, well done Shaun and Trev!

I was glad I turned up to make sure we had at least one silver Zed on the day. Was well and truly outnumbered by greens and blues... :oops:

Will have to get off my butt and organise another cruise. Should be time to squeeze another one in before Germany :drive but this time, I'll try and miss the Bank Holiday weekends. Thinking of the New Forest late Aug/ early Sept, but need to do some research first...

Cheers, Gary

Finally got connected, outstanding day perfect weather, picturesque route, brilliant crew and a tasty lunch 10 out of 10 and some brilliant photos. I had a great day, thanks very much looking forward to the one in August but needs to be before the 13th or after the 28th (on holiday) if I am not too presumtious. Thanks.

A more Z4 based run will be on the 4th of Sept: http://www.z4-forum.com/forum/viewtopic ... 14&t=28619

Normally there are a few Z3s on that as well though.
