Guys,

Could you provisionally put me down for this; my wife just informed me that we will be spending Christmas in the UK this year, the first time in 11 years so should be able to make this.
What does the event involve; just turn up and eat?

Ranjan.
As it's Christmas I need to book and pay a £5 per person deposit plus I need menu choices by 11th November.

It might be possible to add you to the booking later so let me know.
Just go ahead and book me in; how do I pay?

Ranjan.

Have few leftovers from my Rx8: a couple of liters of Mazda fl22 coolant and one liter of Motul 710 (used for premixing). Happy to exchange for a pint of Guinness on the 20th if someone may be interested in :)

Thanks but the well lit areas are too busy for my liking and the spacious parts aren't lit. At least the road is.

Tis but a small price to pay for bringing the RX8 not the Zoe!

Yeah that was a good one. Thanks to Ann especially (those gift bags are awesome) and really great to see you all.

Apologies for all the innuendo, it's 100% the influence of Nigel! :angel:

Merry Christmas all.

Well we all had a fantastic time with plenty of the below the belt jokes etc...... :lol:

Many thank to Ann in organising this event and love the goody bags :P

Glad Ollie made it all the way from Scotland with Ranjan's help in getting him to the Christmas Dinner =D>

Ollie survived the ordeal being in the presence of Haydn and Nigel :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Yep, a great night out, lovely to see some familiar faces, plus a few new ones. Bottles of Prosecco for just £10.99 did help lift spirits too ;)

Awesome goody bags from Ann, which inspired me to place an order with Amazon Prime at the table for some flashy badges for our Christmas guests :lol:
