If Scotland go independent will we need a visa to attend a National up there in the future?.

I thought it was Club policy to not have National in a foreign country so no problem. Could run a Going Scotch however.

No need for a Going Scottish event we already hold an annual Imp Ecosse event which is well attended by many from across the border and beyond. This event is as individual as the Wicked Welsh, Going Dutch and the Irish events. If we are to be a 'Foreign' country Pete does this mean that many members will then be driving foreign cars? Do I hear the echo of 'Linwood No More' coming from the glens as I write this?

Who's going to ask for a visa when you turn-up at the Scottish boarder in a Scottish car? 8)

We need to charge entry here in Wales because of the water problem. Too many leaks.
Turn it around though, an Independent Scotland could charge cars as they leave Scotland. If they're clever they'll do it retrospectively. That's going to cost every Imp owner a few quid...
