Somehow I've managed to get home without stopping for a kip - tired now, so I'll probably be up until tomorrow morning again. :roll: #-o

Just adding my thanks to all involved in organising, catering, setting out the food, helping with assembling/dismantling the gazebo and sorting anything else out and everybody for being great company for the day. =D>

Thanks to everyone for making it such a good day out. Special thanks to those involved in organising it all. I drove home completely stuffed, with a very red face, I probably shouldn't have fallen asleep in the sun.

Lost Property: If anyone is missing a blue camping chair, it's in the boot of my car for safe keeping. We'll get it back to you somehow. I occasionally attend the Cotswold Allsorts meet, and will be at Japanese Performance Show, Stoneleigh CV8 2LG Sunday 20th August 2017, and Forge Performance Castle Coombe in September.

Hi All,

As has been said above, really, thanks for organising a great day out :) Shame I had to duck out early, but had a great time and enjoyed the museum which I haven't frequented in over a decade.

Looking forward to the next one :)

Big thanks to Nigel and everyone else who organised another great day out at Beaulieu =D> . Thanks also to Azam, Claire and Caren for their superb support work before and on the day. Thanks also to Kathy for the lovely scones. I'm sure I missed thanking some people in there, but thanks to you too :thumleft: I do not take for granted all the helpers who give up some of their precious spare time to help stage these events =D> =D>

On behalf of the my fellow RX-7FB club members, thank you for letting us join you and making my friends welcome. I hope seeing some the older Mazda Rotary cars added some extra interest to the stand.

The RX-7 1st Generation (FB) mini display. I say "mini", but with only around 60-70 1st Generation RX-7's on the road, that's a good showing!

I'd like to echo the previous sentiments, thanks to everyone who helped yesterday, organising, providing food and drink as well as nice company. It was a great day out. In addition to the show and the club meet I've never been there before and the motor museum's great.

Malcolm, re the above according to How Many Left there I found I think 56 registered RX-7s from 1980-1986 (a few more SORN) so that's 1 in every 14 cars that are still on the road or 7% of them. Not at all bad.

Well what a day and I was 110% Exhausted after the Show :( and what makes it so worth while to me is seeing all the happy faces enjoying themselves =D>

This was the 4th time I have organised this Show Stand and particle thanks has to go to Team Pat for supporting everyone of them let alone when G3 used to run this Event =D> =D> =D> =D>

I would like to thank my partner in Crime {Azam} for helping me get this off the ground and for his Partner {Claire} to sort out that lovely Buffet we all enjoyed courtesy of the Membership Fee =D>

Thank you goes to Caren for the Homemade Lemon Drizzal Cake and Chocolate Butterfly Cakes and to Kathy for them lovely Homemade Scones with Strawberry Jam and Clotted Cream =D> =D> =D> =D>

Thank you for all the Feedback and Photos posted up so far :thumleft:

I agree with Brooksyvon89 and that we had the best looking Stand by a mile,but that is all down to all of you making it possible Boys and Girls =D> =D> =D> =D>

The Club i.e every single one of you bought Clairebear a very nice bottle of Chablis 2011 for a big thank you from the bottom of all your hearts for all the hard work she put in for the Buffet :P
