Hi Gill :wave

Is there a rough timetable for Sunday?
I believe the early morning cruisers are congregating at 9:00am and there may be another cruise after lunch.
But what time is lunch scheduled?

PS We may not be in the Z :(

Hi, well we are in our room at the hotel on the lake and its a stunning place and we have a superb corner room overlooking the lake, cannot wait to see it properly in the daylight.

The manager has just been to see me and asked if we want to park together, so if he can cordon off an area for us in the car park overnight, he will. im parked next to a massarati (sure thats not how you spell it) on the front so hopefully it will have gone by morning and not spoil our photos :D

See you soon

Gill

I was good to meet you all again today. Thanks to Gill, and happy birthday too. The ride home was great in the sun with the top down and i felt a bit more confident to have a play with my new-found power. 8-)

Meeting has got me in the mood for a cruise so maybe something in early May from me to come...

Hi Gill - thanks for organising.

Very enjoyable day with really nice company.

Just about to have cup of tea and the piece of cake :D

Looking forward to Newby and Walney.

So many varieties of zeds today - there was even a black one with brown grills that was covered in chocolate buttons :devil:

Hi Everyone

We had a great weekend and really enjoyed our stay at the hotel. Our alarm was a bit different to normal, ducks arguing in the garden and having a romp through the flowers :D The hotel, staff, room, food and company was all excellent and would definately stay there again.

Canman, probably me, as they took my card details in case we owed them anything, but i will send them an email and ask.

Here are some pics of today

Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Thank you to Snoops and Titan for the buttons :D and thank you for all your messages.

This is the one that JC lost en-route, but, then , he wasnt with us any way :roflmao: :roflmao:

Image


280 mile round trip, so old zeddy had a good run out too :D look forward to seeing you all at Newby.

Gill

Thanks Gill for organising a super day, and we hope you had as good a day on your birthday, as we did.
Even though Jem was a bit under the weather, (no it wasnt 'red-nose' a day early) we both enjoyed the run out and the chance to meet some great people from the best forum.

Z3Cade (Liam), I had a job keeping up with you to the 70mph, that we did all the way back..... :lol:
but you had the roof up..... :shock:

I am sure we will see you all again soon....

looking forward to the next meet!
