Well I decided to go up the night before to break the journey up, 4 hrs in a car is just a tad over my ability to keep my eyes open.
Had a decent nights sleep and arranged to meet (bleep bleep, my food it ready, be right back... right sorted) Neil, The Drinkys, and one of the new guys. Sxi I think it was. We had a nice run down to Southport from Lymm Services following Mr Drinky in his fly death machine. Arrived at the beach and sorted out the parking location. I managed to borrow The Gopher to come with me to get the car washed at Morrisons. Thanks Mr D. After leaving morrisons because all they had was a car scratcher machine ventured further out and found a 3.0DTi signum in front of me and a Astra VxR behind. Needless to say I had to put my foot down to keep the VxR away from my behind whilst pushing the Signum forwards developing loadsa black fumes by the gallons.
Car all nice and clean returned to the beach. Parked up and had some of Mr D's lovely food. For you food counters out there. ONE SAUSAGE and ONE PIECE of CHICKEN made my stomach stop rumbling. Some impromptu car display whilst Ian_C's mate was in mid flight mad us a made dash to do a V in the sand. All within one minute from getting the idea. A good day was had by everything.
In closing, I'd like to thank the NW for making me an honoury member with certificate (look ma I got a A level in tarting). Ian_C, & The Drinkys for organising the event and The Drinkys again for providing top quality food.
Was good to meet up with AndyVec at last (top bloke), also the new guys who i manged to have a quick chat to. Also the regulars such as Alex and clan, Neil and Gopher, Ion & Gwen, Mr Ian C himshort self, and Caterman.
Thanks for having me up in the NW, top event with top people! THANK YOU
ps. I dont know why food keeps cropping up in everything...
