Thanks all for a great day out.

I will try to avoid turning up in an 'inferior' car next time, although i promised that last time and didn't deliver!

Thanks go to Phil and Marise for their organising and successful implementation. Its no easy task so your efforts are much appreciated!

Here's to the next one! (West Wales anyone?)

Hope everyone enjoyed the day.
Hey and lets thank the weather for being kind to us.
There were some amazing views of the Cotswolds, made all the better because it was a bright clear day.

I have a couple of pictures

Just want to thank our helpers on the day who kept the information flowing regarding the convoy.
Liz and Ade our backmarkers and Arit and Brian the middle markers.
If you have never arranged an event like this you won't appreciate just how important the use of walkie talkies is when attempting to keep a large group of cars together.
Might even arrange more next year - :D :D :D

To echo everybody else, huge thanks to Phil and Marise in organising the day and keeping all the cars together - even with me doubling back. :oops:
I'll upload my (fairly limited this time) photos once I'm back from Germany later this week.
