The Olympics don't interest me either but like many others I have to work during that period, all leave is cancelled.

As mentioned in the DSM Rally thread, there's big news about the CX, XM and Xantia Rally. Following the CX Section Committe Meeting that was held at the DSM, we are pleased to announce details for the Rally (7-9th September). Please see below for the Rally Advert...

Image

As you can see from the advert above, the main change is that it is Free Entry! You don't have to pay a penny to enter the field and camping is free of charge too! No expensive entry here at all...

We will of course have a convoy again, kindly organised by Jim, to Bletchley Park (home of the WW2 Decoding Machine; Enigma, and other interesting features). Jim is organising a scenic route through the lanes and backroads and upon arrival we can park outside the mansion in the oval. Perfect for photos... This is happening on Saturday at 1:00pm and we have a group visit booked - entry is £12 per head. See their website for what this fantastic location has to offer: http://www.bletchleypark.org.uk/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Cooked Buffet Breakfasts are available on Saturday and Sunday Mornings (from 8am to 10am) at the Shoulder of Mutton Pub next to the Rally Site (£4 per head).

The Fish and Chip Van will be coming around on Friday Evening as is the usual...

For Saturday Evening we have organised a meal to be held at the Shoulder of Mutton Pub. A menu was drawn up with the Pub that features a wide choice so (hopefully!) everyone will be catered for. The menu is below, and a vegetarian option will of course be available. Menu subject to change.

Starters - Smoked Salmon, Paté Dish, Tomato and Basil Salad.

Mains - Beef Bourguignon, Coq au Vin, Old Smokey Burger (Pub Special).

Desert - Tart ou Citron, Chocolate Fudge Cake, Profiteroles.

The cost for the meal is £15 per head and will be at 7:30pm on Saturday Evening.

Refreshments on the Saturday and Sunday Afternoons will be available in the kitchen that include Filled Rolls, Tea, Coffee and Soft Drinks.

There will be trophies for Best CX, XM and Xantia present, with rosettes too for 1st, 2nd and 3rd (like the X Rally). Also there is of course the Roger Bradford “Roger’s Choice” Trophy (the car he would exclaim "Good God" at if he had seen it...) and the Eileen Stearnes Trophy (the car that has been brought back from the dead/improved the most and deserves special recognition...)

...and of course the brilliant atmosphere that is only the CX, XM and Xantia Rally!

Don't forget the Pickled Eggs... :lol: :lol: :wink:

See you there! :-D

Similar issues here, as the route for one of the events goes past our head office in London, and the company have already been told that there will be no access to that office for a week. We also have many people affected by the odd Olympic routes who will be delayed or unable to get to work at all.

The 100m mens final usually interests me, but that's all of 9.5 seconds out of a month..

Can't be doing with pickled eggs, and I might have to come in a Berlingo, but I shall be there! It's only 32 weeks after my op and I'm supposed to stay out of the way of people for at least two.. Just what the doctor ordered. Might have to wear a surgical mask, but I shall be there!

<thinks>

Damn, does this mean I need to get the tent out? Horror of horrors!

I can provide accommodation at CitroJim Towers for you Mike. That's got to be a bit better than a tent....

No problem at all Mike :) There's still one place left but whoever has it will be sleeping with a server (not actually, but it's in the same room) and it's a tad noisy.... You've got the quiet room Mike...
