Not to put a damper on things when its only a week to go again, but its bloom'in snowing here again, luckly not alot at the moment, but after the last lot I hope it dont stay around for long. I was intending to get Charlie out of the garage this morning, get his wheels off for a good clean etc.

I'm sure the weather will be fine  8)

Mrs Umpa is bringing a Birthday cake

RadioMarty is bringing some balloons

If anyone else wants to bring some party stuff we could make it a bit more of a party. Nothing messy though - don't want to upset the hosts (Brooklands).

We could set up a photo of my new unused C5 with the birthday cake and surrounded by as many of us as can fit in the picture  ;D

Hi All

Sadly won't be able to make the c5-25 event this weekend due to a family engagement.  Hope there is no snow and it goes well.

Good luck

Mike

Roll on Sunday, have been really busy the past three days, Karen had pulled her back Monday morning and I've been rushing about doing as much as possible so she could rest. She's up and about tonight so back to work Friday, I hope she is up to speed for in a few weeks its her turn to look after me for a while after I've had my hernia repair op.

Fingers crossed Karen makes a speedy recovery mate - you dont want her too ill when it comes to mopping your fevered brow and feeding you breakfast in bed  ;D

..besides, all the domestic chores will start stacking up  :o

Looks like Sunday will be "snow free" and we'll finally get to celebrate the c5's birthday  :-*

Important update

I've spoken to Brooklands today just to confirm everything is still ok for Sunday.

Our function room is available from 8am onwards ,giving us about an hour to set everything up. If you want to help with setting up meet me there at about 8am  ;D

If you want to access the site through the usual entrance, known as Campbell gate, you must do so before 09:15 - the gates will be shut for the VSCC trials at 09:30. Arriving after 09:30 doesn't mean you can't get in, you will just have to take the long way round and come in through Vickers bridge - the large gate we used last September to get to the Mercedes track.

Just to re-cap on who is doing what (in no particlar order);

Steve is bringing the big Dial-a-ride bus to transport c5's,gazebo's,display boards and display items to Brooklands.

RetroAndy is bringing a selection of 1980's games consoles etc, radiomarty & Kurt are also bringing a few items as well.

Umpa is bringing computer and projector to show a powerpoint display, Mrs Umpa is doing a "birthday cake" 

ElectricDave is bringing a working display prototype of the metal gearbox conversion (..saw it today, it is awesome  )

Adam Harper is attending with a selection of Sinclair parts & accessories for sale - text him direct if you want a specific item to make sure he brings it along.

whitestone is bringing along his prototype c5

the rest of us are bringing along as many c5's as possible

If I've missed anything out let me know !

I will try to be there early to help you set up. I know we have to pay entry for this one which is not a problem but can I pay at the gallagher gate or will they only let people through who have tickets? Looking forward to seeing everyone. K.
