To be honest, we've not really moved on from the last time we discussed it all.  It was last left as;

Umpa - powerpoint demo  (supplying own gear ?)

Andy -  retro games/computers and stuff

As many c5alive Forum members as possible to bring their c5's for display, especially hope to see some modded c5's (Ray's Ubmobile, Benniz etc )

Myself - display boards , now to include one about Test Hill &  "Challenger"  , my unused C5 plus some accessories on display

Adam Harper - invited, display details to be finalised

Other guests are still to confirm their attendance,so it makes further planning a bit tricky.

I've got some days off coming up soon, so I'll be pushing this a bit further forwards then.

I've still got my eyes open for a shell suit from the 1980's to add to the day.

Retro Andy.

Just a thought - I have one of those projectors you can attach to a laptop etc if you want to put some powerpoints on the wall Umpa

You'd be more than welcome mate  :).

As for the price, I'm hoping to keep this free for all those that attend to display their c5's - still to be confirmed. Worse case scenario is the standard £8 museum entry fee.

Sadly , Roy Woodward has now confirmed he will not be able to attend due to holiday commitments  :( and the author Rodney Dale is still a "maybe" - fingers crossed he can get to the event on the day.

I'm hoping to get to Brooklands soon to iron out a few more details for this event .

Firstly, I need a rough idea of how many people are likely to attend and bring a c5 with them - please start letting me know asap. I'd like to see at least 25 c5's at the event - it would make for an awesome photo-shoot.

 Secondly, I feel we should put together a programme of events to give the day more structure. We know the museum officially opens at 10am and closes at 4pm , so we need to list what we will be doing between those times.

Let me have your thoughts and ideas on how to make this event worthy of its place in history  8)

To start with;

The list of people and C5's attending

Me & Angie : six and a half c5's - "voodoo" , "moneypit", "malcolm", "Dave" , "virgin" ,"half-pint" & "challenger"
Kurt - plus 1 c5 "jetpac"
Radiomarty (& family) - plus 1 c5


Proposed "Programme of events"

10am -doors open . 

11am - umpa's powerpoint

1pm - C5 maintenance demo/talk (using "half-pint")

2pm - repeat of umpa's powerpoint

3.30pm - event close

Andy will have his retro games display, plus c5martin has suggested we hold a repeat of the hillclimb attempt and the outside demo in the usual "playpen" (subject to the weather) .

This is just the first thoughts and will be changed/updated as ideas come forward  :)
