Malcolm (casey) , Myself (conann) , Nigel (GSB) and Ian (Ian.M) will be picking this up :!:

We are currently holding 40 places for Spa at £280 with extra drivers and passengers included along with an F1 Garage in that price and £155 for Mettet.

Club Shop - £280 or send as Gift Via PayPal = £270
Club Shop - £155 or send as Gift Via PayPal = £150

We also have hotel rooms reserved for those who haven't reserved themselves and I'm inquiring about a meal for 40 or 50 people on the Friday night.

Twin Room Approx - £100 = Twin Room Sharing works out at £50
Double/Single Room Approx - £80+

We will arrive at the Radisson Blu Balmoral Hotel on Thursday Evening at about 5pm where we will arrange to have Dinner there later in the Evening and then on the Saturday Morning leave early to drive over to the Mettet Track =D>

With the exchange rate at 1:40 it may be a good time to change some money now :?:

I would like to thank the Committee for their support.

Any questions :?: :?: :?: :?:

Regards
Pete

I do believe I have booked for both Spa and Mettet, but only Ian will know as I had a mare with Paypal, I use it so infrequently that at one time I thought I had probably bought three lots of tickets. #-o

I have also provisionally booked two nights at a hotel near Mettet to save getting up at silly o'clock on Saturday morning to drive from Spa to make a 7.30 sign on :-k . I am also holding the two nights at the Radisson at Spa to cover both eventualities. :thumleft:

Re the tunnel, hang fire booking until we can see if we have enough people to qualify for a discount.

I have a better idea Ricky,
I think you should cancel Snett and Bedford and come to Spa with us :thumright:
It won't cost you any more than those two :wink:

Hi, you are welcome to convoy down with myself and Ian.Mothersole (the shopkeeper) as you'll be passing our way (Manningtree and Colchester) on the way down to the tunnel? We can sort out rendezvous later if that works for you? Harrizone will possibly tag along too (Southend) and maybe others.

:D The shopkeeper (Ian) is at the Beaulieu meet today, so I expect he'll pick up your post tomorrow, but best you send him a PM and I'm sure he can sort things out.
