May 2020 Mobile Mini Meet

Post by dragonflyjewels » Thu Jan 30, 2020 12:35 pm

Hello everyone, and Happy New Year to you all.
I'm looking at dates for the May meet, 23rd is good for us. If anyone can't make that day, please let me know. It will be a repeat of the Hampshire meet, starting at the Hellfire Caves on the edge of High Wycombe, and ending somewhere near our photoshoot at Goodwood.
Good luck to our northern friends for the waterfalls meet - fingers crossed there won't be waterfalls of rain !! We'd have loved to join you, but we will only just be back from Spain. After driving 1500 miles home, I suspect neither of us will be up for another long car journey. Lots of photos please !

Hi Sylvia, I will be on a battlefield tour of Belgium and France on that date, so unable to come I’m afraid. Shame you could not make the waterfalls meet here’s hoping for good weather for both meets. Cheers Norm.

Hello Sylvia,

It is probably a bit darn sarf for me to contemplate taking part, sadly :(

Is there any appetite, I wonder, for another jaunt around the Derbyshire Dales and Derwent Water? I think my newly shod Paris Blue beastie would be there at a canter.

Sorry you aren't available, but enjoy the waterfalls meet and the battlefields, we'll look forward to seeing you again at another meet later in the year.

FInancially, I don't think we can make this one but will show up if things ease off nearer the time. :)
April will see a lot of ££££ go into the 480 which is currently sitting un-drivable....again...until that cash injection. :wall:
