I'd just like to quickly thank everyone for such a great turnout at the VBOA Rallie at Billing 2007. Again every member in attendance exceeded my expectations and turned out cracking cars that were polished to within an inch of their lives.
As you all know we were guests this year and I really wanted to make a perfect impression on the VBOA committee, and we managed it as the VBOA chairman commented on our cars. This is down to you peeps - thank you very much. We're expecting full blown membership next year, so we'll be able to have a lot more members in attendance with their cars on show.
Special thanks go to -
Duncan - if Duncan hadn't arranged to present our club to the VBOA, this weekend probably wouldn't have been as good as it was. He liaised with them and learned the specific requirements to join the VBOA and made sure we as a club met those requirements, then produced a nice glossy handout explaining all about the club. Then along with Mark (GSI3.2) and myself went along to Luton to give the presentation. Keep it up buddy.
Mark (GSI3.2) - I can't praise this guy enough. Anyone who's met Mark or has had any dealings with him will know that this guy is 'Top Dollar'. Firstly he has agreed to be our representative at all the VBOA meetings in Luton; sorry mate, but I don't envy you one bit. He also came along to the presentation to show support for the club. On a personal level, I'd of never erected my trailer tent without this guy and I think he knew I'd need help as he immediately stopped what he was doing on my arrival at the camp site to assist me. Then on the Saturday night he assisted Duncan in completing a service of his car, and then on Sunday did some major work on Big Phils car along with Plasma. This is all in a field remember peeps. The man's a star in my eyes!
Cara (Mrs GSI) - Cara organised both BBQ's this weekend. She went out of her way to go and get the food on Saturday and Sunday and went around collecting the money. She also had the job of reining Mark in when he saw another classic car that he wanted. Thank you Cara.
Chris (Drinky) - top man as always. Chris cooked both the BBQ's, so if you have a burning bum you know who to blame. Seriously though, that BBQ on Sunday was damned hot and in that heat he must of sweated a few lbs, so thank you Chris.
Eveyone else - remember peeps, without you lot these things simply just wouldn't happen!
Lastly, but by no means least my wife (Shazz) - she has to put up with me running all over the place and neglecting my family responsibilities. She was also the creche leader and looked after quite a few children when she didn't have to. I had to drag her away on Sunday afternoon for a rest. Thank you baby, I love you, you are my rock.
I think that's all I want to say peeps. Roll on TRAX.
Thank you again
