Dear Al

I note that you have the wrong date for the Manresa Rally in Spain ( 8-9 June 2013) and you have missed out the Schoolhouse Farm Open day  which I believe is 28th July 2013.

Are there any other errors or ommissions in Al's list? I hope not.

Thanks Rob.

As is always the case I start doing the list and suddenly info comes in so it is already superseded. No Reliant action yet, must remedy that, as their are plenty of fans of Tamworth's finest out there.

It is noticeable that there is a succession of events being held in the grounds of the Bubblecar Museum at Langrick, now they have got the site mainly developed and the infrastructure complete to ease hosting duties. There is talk of a phase two as well as non museum/camping area projects to be done, so they are not resting on their laurels yet a while.

If it were not for the National taking on Malvern's Three Counties Showground again, the South, and especially the South West, looks bereft of action unless you have a Bond Bug. Thank goodness Bath survives.

Sadly I will probably not be able to host a 50cc car day/weekend to go to the FBHCC meeting at the Bishopstone 'Drive it Day' this year as I had hoped. I will be in mid moving mode without organized space unless something alters.

Indeed yes, spotted the Manresa error, it felt wrong when I read back. I put it on my scribble covered calendar incorrectly by hand! Updating.

New list posted replacing the old.

Perhaps Rob would like to amend his typing out of the list too so as to eliminate any confusion.

I'm no expert but I think you have to have "open office" on your computermobob to be able to open that kind of file. I dare say Jim who IS an expert will tell us!

Bob. I have re-listed Al's corrected list.  Easy, just copy & paste.  

Jean. Under Al's original listing there are the words  ...   dates 2013.doc  click on this on his listing and it will bring up Al's Microsoft Word Document.
