I will be going to this again, I hope we can get the 30 cars as well, i'm sure I counted 29 at gaydon so 30 should be easy.. my brother is following up in his sd1 so I will arrive on the sunday morning, I have polished my car so apologise for the weather between now and then hopefully it will have recovered by then and be a nice day... regards ricky

Maybe a colleague after a future favour will be prepared to swap a few shifts with you Kate? Hope so anyway!

Will be good to see the Police 827 again and the Shantung Gold 820 and of course you and Suzie as well! Fingers crossed for the leave and/or shift-swap! :wink: :D

You certainly did well with your deal today Dusan! I'm sure many Mk1 owners will take advantage of some of those bits you have as well! :wink: :D
Cheers,
Dave

I'll be there from about 0830 to help, I was going to camp over, but I had my appendix out last week - so I'm wussing out and staying in a hotel :-) I'll be in the 'forgot to book a ticket' lane though. When I'm in, I'll look for the other 800s

Don't blame you wussing out on helping after losing your appendix!

I'm hoping to land about 830-900 with tea, coffee, kettle etc so you won't have long to wait for a drink! :wink: :D
Cheers,
Dave

Is there anything else that we might need? I'll put some folding chairs in the boot too.

Not much else - i'll also be bringing some mugs, a folding picnic table with 4 seats, gas stove, water, milk, electric coolbox/fridge and a packed lunch with (hopefully) a few spare sarnies in case someone forgets their lunch.

Other than that, it's entirely up to the individual but you must bring yourself and your 800 and enjoy! :wink: :D
Cheers,
Dave

************************* HUGE BUMP *******************************
The question you have to ask yourself is why are you reading this when you should be out polishing your 800 for the BMC Rover 800 30th Anniversary bash this weekend.
Hope to see you all there. Yes that weather forecast is looking good so no excuses

In between polishing efforts, i'm trying to get my coupé running again Kate - so the question i'm asking myself is why oh why has it chosen this time to throw a wobbler???????

By inference, am i right in thinking you will be able to make it?
Cheers,
Dave

I could only get the Saturday night off so going up there straight off nightshift this morning and will then have to go straight in for nightshift on Sunday night.

You'll be needing Acro-props for your eyelids! Be good to see you though!

Got the coupé sorted, just need to re-tune the LPG, final vacuum, clean and polish and packed with the kettle etc.
Cheers,
Dave

Apologies for not being there tomorrow it looks like it is going to be a beautiful day.
Hope it all goes smoothly and there is a good turn out of 800's, get lots of pictures for us stuck down here to make us regret not being there.
Kate, that is dedication and you put the rest of us to shame.
Good luck with the Coupe Dave, wishing you all a reliable day.
Looking forward to seeing the pictures, (maybe even some Marc high shots) have a great day.

Well I'm down here already, tucked up in a nice little hotel few miles from the venue, having a couple of pre-dinner G&T's and looking forward to the day ahead, be there 9 - 9.30.
