Ok guys,last update before next Weekend,The Saturday run is taking us to Big Pit once again this year,we will be going on the underground tour in two groups,group 1 go underground at 12 midday,while they are underground group 2 will be free to look around the museum and shop and make use of the cafe,group 1 will have the same time to look around while group 2 are underground,the charge for entry to the event will be £4 per adult as last year,we have to charge this to cover our costs(which seem to get greater every year!) The tongue in cheek raffle will be on the Saturday night as previous years as will the quiz,I am struggling to find a pa/cd player at the moment but I am sure something will be sorted before next weekend other wise I will be hoarse by the end of the weekend!! :lol: :lol:
Roy and his team have sorted the Friday run and we are very grateful for him and his teams help,the show n shine line up and trophy presentations will be on the Sunday Morning and a short scenic run out will follow if the weather is kind to us.
For all you bakers there will be a cake off sometime over the weekend held in Bob's gazebo,Adam has his name down as chief taster!! :o (I have this idea for chilli Chocolate buttons for the brave!! :twisted: :o :D )
Have a safe journey everyone,see you soon. 8)

Last call for anybody who wants anything from imp club spares to WWW. I'm going round to Bob Allan's tonight to pick-up the orders.
Also, if anybody has any old stuff for exchange / reconditioning, I can pick it up at WWW.
Cheers,

Heartily endorse the above comments about this year's WWW another raging success. Well done Neil and family. I was gutted I couldn't bring my Imp and relieved that Claire didn,t win in the raffle as she threatened to nominate me to wear the mankini. Enjoyed the scenery on both runs, but one little whinge, last years Saturday run was far superior both in distance and blastable roads.
Keep up the good work and will be there next year, fingers crossed.
best wishes. Claire and Alan

15 years of WWW - I haven't missed a single one. We even chose the day we got married so we wouldn't miss it and tied our Honeymoon into being there...

It's my fave event of the year and always will be. Great people, great place and great times.

Thank you Neil, Tina and Adam for your hard work - it's massively appreciated at Chateau Morgan.

See you next year. :-)

Second time going and was yet another fantastic event for us. Josh thoroughly enjoyed playing with Adam and Co and also looking after Ben morgan. Great to catch up with friends and shame some didn't make it for whatever reason. The big pit was brilliant and the guide had so.e great info and tales. Will get the van there one day.

Make the run longer Neil ;-)

Think I misunderstood. ... thought the bake off competition involved head gaskets!
