I hope the weather's OK - I just washed the car and was about to break out the polish when the heavens opened!  ::)

I'm fairly excited for tomorrow  8) The weather looks mainly on our side, but I won't let a shower or two stand in the way. 8)

Quite right, too. We are made of sterner stuff than Ferrari owners!

Look fwd to meeting you tomorrow.

Thanks to the AOC team and the Sharnbrook Hotel for a cracking BBQ today.  8)

It was a shame the rain got involved, but other than that all good, and great to catch up with a few faces new and old.

Cheers
Toby

Looks like all the updates and reviews for this event are on on FB, luckily JL is on there too. A good meeting despite the weather, proving Abarth Owners are a hardy bunch. Great to meet some forum friends and place some new ones.  Thanks to Sharnbrook hotel, Colin and Bertie. Nice (if unexpected) to welcome AOC members to our home town St Neots. Next time we'll make cakes and put the bunting out. Brands Hatch next for us. A

Awesome first meet, great to meet some of you and couldn't have picked a better venue, excellent set up including the shelter from the rain!

p.s... does anyone know where we can view the mensstuffapproved photos that were taken or are they one Facebook? (I don't have facebook)

I'm afraid most of the action, and the reports and photos are indeed on Facebook (and I stand as guilty as everyone else, as that's where I put some photos up last night!)......... as others have observed, the forum (indeed, any forum) is far quieter than it used to be, as people have all gravitated to Facebook (and then ask the same questions repeatedly as they cannot easily search on anything more than a few hours old!)............. I do try to post all event advance info on here. so people do not miss out....  there will eventually be detailed reports on my website http://colinoncars.com    though there is something of a backlog of getting things written and posted there!
