Hi Ralph. I'm hoping to go too but only if the weather forecast improves. For details I suggest you contact Martin Galea  Tel: 01603 639268.
I know there will be a run out on Saturday of about 40 miles and another into Norwich on Sunday morning. May see you there.  Bob

Hi Ralph. It will be good to see you too. Cant remeber if I told you but I dont have the Schmitt anymore. Look out for me sporting a red Isetta. The forecast has improved since I last looked so I should be there.    Bob

When in Norwich outside Anglian TV you have to honour Nicholas Parsons. Well so thought the BUMS. This somewhat bought the area to a stop and we nearly got arrested. Great cheese stall in the market!

Cheese stall? Now your talking!!    Will we see you there Al or are you still barricaded in?

Partially barricaded and demanding accounts which have arrived in a foreign system to double book keeping so I have to decode this to see what it means, if anything, and what is missing/wrong. Thereafter solicitors at 10 paces probably.
Also I have two more Type 70 to prepare now along with a total bubble engine insert assembly and at least two Messerschmitts, soonest done soonest gone. The great clearout is under way. I spent a day yesterday clearing the access to my local shed and created two parking spaces out of throwing out, marking for disposal and placing out stuff not collected. Did you still need a gear lever? Found a Sachs gearbox too, deep joy. I think the National is the only event I will be attending now, though I might take a few sillies on Sunday rather than a Schmitt everyone has seen.
Hopefully the new area will see the EAMC rally do well. There is a lot to look at in Norfolk and lots of lanes ideal for microcars. One of my places to visit again.

Hi Al. Thanks for the offer but found a sachs lever and the spare engine is now long gone. Rather sad really as it was my last link the Messerschmitt world. Still, had ten good years of Schmitting, now, Norfolk roads , hear comes Thumper ready or not!!

Just returned from the Norwich Rally. Great new venue, airport not too intrusive, nice 40 mile run out on Saturday, short promotional run on Sunday into Norwich and the weather was kind to us. Alas no cheese stall in the city center! Thumper even won a prize! Many thanks to the Norfolk lads and lassies for organising it. Boooootifull!

That was hard cheese. But does the market operate on a Sunday? We had a BUMS bonfire BBQ at the weekend celebrating the incineration of 10 years of Captain Bondseye's business records plus a load of stuff I cleared out. As such BBQ in the garage flanked by Schmitt and Pod followed by crumbly Cheshire, tangy Cornish Blue, smooth Ementaal and stinky Le Rustique. Marvellous and Root missed it preferring to play with the 9th regiment at South Cerney replacing RAF Kemble, the event that wanted to charge Schmitters to attend. I don't think so! Just continue looking at the ranks of Marinas and Allegros and associated MG sports cars, yawn. Prescott yesterday. Whizz whizz.

Great weather, good vibe... although one too many speed bumps on the run out!  ;D

Yeh I second that, I cant get anywhere locally without having to negotiate speed bumps so was looking forward to the wilds of Norfolk and a bump free zone but no, we went through a town/village where I thought they were never going to end! Ooooh me' knigpins!  ;D
Forgot to mention that in attendance were no less that FIVE Scootacars! I think the entire Boyde family were there each with there own example! It looked like a passing giant had spilled some of his peanut M&M's ouit on the field!
