OPEN MEET AND (optional) RX8 FOREST DRIVE..... SUNDAY 12th MAY 2O24..... 1Oam - 2pm

Venue

The RX8 Forest Drive sets off around 12 noon. If you are coming to the event in another car, why not catch a lift in one of these unique amazing cars.
The drive takes just over the hour and will return to the venue, giving you enough time for further refreshments before making your trip home.

Great work Derek organising something for the club. A little far for me unfortunately, however I hope you get a good turnout and this new event is well supported by those in the area.

Anyone can come in any car and just park in the carpark. If you come in a RX8 you will park in "show area".

The venue have asked me to confirm how many RX8s will be coming.

Thank you Drew

There are those that do and those that don't and when those that did don't do it anymore, those that didn't don't understand why!

.......... so I'll give it my best shot :D

I believe this from Mr.Holmes in May 23 is fitting to your statement from the Joke page, though funny, also true:

There are four people named Everybody,Somebody, Anybody and Nobody
There was an important job to be done and Everybody was asked to do it
Everybody was sure Somebody would do it
Anybody could have done it
But Nobody did it
Somebody got angry about that, because it was Everybodys job
Everybody thought Anybody could do it but Nobody realised the everybody wouldn't do it
It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what anybody could have done.

HOLD THE LINE CALLER......

....... bear with me, I'm new to this and I need to tweak things!

The Forest Drive is optional, I should have made that clear.

If you are interested in coming along in any car, please add your name. If it is an RX8 please indicate.

Thank you :)

Put me on the list please, surprised to see a meet so close to me.
I'll be coming in my R3 and probably on the forest drive as well, will be good to drive with some other RX8's.

You are not too late, it's open to anyone and everyone who has an interest in RX8s. If I know roughly how many cars (RX8) are coming, I can let the venue know. :thumright:

Nothing new, 3rd asthma attack in 2 weeks 🙄 the baby got a new Teddy though so worth a visit 🤣

Did order a pair of mini cameras to strategically attach to the car somewhere whilst hooked up to oxygen, so need some fun roads and a little convoy to test them out 😊
