Hi mags rx8,

A few of the regulars won't be able to make it, but if there's more interest and I can book a table, then we can try the meet this month.

Anybody else??

I've made a provisional booking for 8 people, for 8.30pm at the furzton lake pub.

I've asked Alan is he's up for it too...

If we want to make this an Xmas Event we'll need to confirm numbers and stump up Β£5 deposit per head...
Mags - will you be alone or with a partner?

Looks like it'll be 6 at best... I'm happy to reduce the booking, but if you want to meet more we can consider next month?

Ok, I'll reduce the booking to 6... Though I think only 5. So long as nothing changes here - wife school worker and testing daily - I'm good too.

Hi folks, yes I'll be there.

Trying to reduce the booking down to fewer people, but not much luck.

Shout out to SeanP for travelling to MK to meet up for food and rexy chat. Food was spot on, Sean was great company and it was great to see another 8 in the same car park.

Cheers and see you next month!

I'll be there in January, hope to see a herd of 8s as still only seen SeanPs R3 since I picked up my S1.

Bear in mind that he car park is now pay and display so you'd need to register your registration number at the Hungry Horse in order to enjoy free parking.

Out of interest, what is the plural for rx8s, is it a herd, a gaggle, a pack or what?
