    Default The region so far.....

    Thought i would do a write up on the N.I section, just a run down on the meets and news from the region was added. This will be updated after each meet.

    The N.I region was originally requested by thestaffy on the 7th Jan 2007 with the members list growing and names coming forward the section was opened on 18th Feb 2007, the list at the time was:

    dervdoc
    spuddevans
    sri22dti
    thestaffy
    larrymcgibbon

    Icetrix
    Ali
    briancdti



    With the region on the forum, the ideas for meets starting coming and the very first meet for the region was arranged by dervdoc for Sun 11th Mar 07 at Ranmore Head car-park Portrush. (Could not find any pics of this meet)



    The members who attended this meet were:


    inz-marky
    dervdoc



    The next meet was better and was on Sun 25th Mar 07 in Newcastle. Was able to find some pics on the forum of this meet.
