Now then folks
Just one month to the School House Farm open day at Hawkenbury. (29 July 2012) and the long term weather report looks like it will be a nice weekend.

Sice Last year Mike has been bevering away improving the buildings and extending the workshops ready to connect into the Bubble Building (not finished yet)

Unlike last years surprise special guest who never teunrd up, I am confident that this years surprise will turn up. and may even be surprises (even Jean does not know what they are), and I do not mean Stuart with his van load of Microcars.

For those that want to make it a weekend there are now camping facilities ( contact Leslie) or the usual B&B in the village.

I look forward to seeing you all there on Sunday 29th July.

Chris Thomas

I do hope you have not forgotten that it is just 9 days to go before the next Hammond Collection Open Day at School House Farm (Sunday 29 July 2012). And the weather, as promised, will be glorious.

Bring along some food to cook on the BBQ a fold up garden chair and your favorite Microcar for the best day out so far this summer.

All the usual attractions plus a few new additions.

I hope to see you all there

Additions? Surprises? What does this all mean??  I know this is too fanciful to even contemplate but could it be that Chris has finally joined the fraternity proper and bought himself a microcar??  :o :o :o   The clue could be in his admonition to bring "food, a garden chair and your favourite microcar" Surely he wouldnt ask us to do something he wasnt going to do himself??   :D :D  I cant wait!!

 I'll be there! Van's being paid for on Monday and so the "AC" P50 WILL be making its public debut on the lawn nine days from now.   :o   Several places locally had been clamoring for the honour once word got out I had it, but then as now it was always School House Farm at the top of my list for the first showing...   :-*

Lots of complicated work and plans to organise. I hope to be there but looking a bit unlikely. Drat, drat, and double drat (© Dick Dastardly)

Dear Bob

It is never a good thing to raise peoples expectations too high as they only come away disapointed.

The wording of my blog was " bring along your favorite Microcar". It did not say that you had to own it.

I look forward to seeing who turns up and how many new vehicles ( including Stuarts AC P50) will be at School House Farm next Sunday.

Keep smiling

If I had any microcars now I for one would not let someone else bring any of my vehicles to any car meet. With them out of my sight any thing could happen to them. Bits being pinched off of them or even stolen! It was bad enough in the '70s when people used to jump in the car without asking and then moaning because there wasn't the key to start it up.

I quite agree Rob.  I shouldn't worry, this banter is all part of my long term campaign to persuade Chris into microcar ownership. Nothing has worked so far! :D
