No photos from me unfortunately. It was a good do as per usual. Numbers are tumbling year on year though which is a shame we almost managed to fit within the wooden fence posted area on the Sunday.

The Midland Section and attendees always manage to pull off a rally which is noticeably different to the others. Much more family and group oriented, several children riding about on their bikes while others were running away from the Dalek and Storm trooper and for those who like the night life, the BX lot can cater for that with any number of alcoholic beverages and food items. Me and Ant were the last ones up, I think it was knocking on 4am...the sunlight on Sunday morning was painfull!

I came back with a few bits and pieces including a set of XM S1&2 main dealer workshop manuals. The catch is that the majority of the pages are stuck together. I've managed to carefully prise a few apart and the tough pages have faired surprisingly well.

No photos from me either I'm afraid. I just ran up on the Sunday in my brother's SM, but it was a good rally and I nearly went the whole day without buying any spares! Nearly! :lol:
Had a nice chat with Jim and Kev, trying to turn them to the dark side of CXs! :P Well done on the Xantia Jim too.

Roll on next year. Apparently, theres some new blood on the Midlands Section committee so hopefully we'll have some more events and meets.

You will always get Visa photos from me and I loved the Plumbs and custard 2CVs. A nice set of BXs and Jim’s Xantia V6 because he has been helping my wife get hers shipshape.

Adam, do you seriously want this caliper?

If you do, I'm sure we can arrange something. I'm not sure which side it is... Does it matter to you?
