Hi Gerry,

Yep, seen you and your spider around, not enough of us on the road! I know I am biased but it brightens up your day when you see a Beta around Smiley

Good luck with the mot, let me know if you get stuck with anything, happy to lend a hand.

Hi Tim

Is the plan still to meet at 11am at the Sir William hotel in Grindleford.
Also worth mentioning, anyone travelling up from the south, it's F1 at Silverstone this weekend, might be worth avoiding the M1 and M40 especially Sunday afternoon  Roll Eyes

Hi Tony,
Yes the plan is still to meet at the Sir William Hotel at eleven (S32 2HS) for sat navs etc, I have already opened a tab so teas, coffee's and cakes etc are on me Smiley. I will be wandering around the car park from about ten to keep spaces clear for us but as long as we start our drive out to the Winnatts pass etc by one we will have plenty of time for a good drive around the peaks with some scenic picture stops if needs be.

The weather forecast does not fill me with confidence so bring umbrella's!

Safe journeys to all, see you soon.

Tim.

Hi Tim

Looking forward to it, should be there for around 10:30 all being well.

Forecast for Sunday looks a bit better than Sat, but hopefully not too wet.....

Hi Tim
Unfortunately Spyder off the road still but that is due to me being damaged rather than it!  I would love to pop along to the Sir William tomorrow and say Hi (face to face rather than through windscreens) and then perhaps catchup at chatsworth on sunday - will be in my 595 abarth - see you, Gerry

Hi All,

The plan for Sunday is to meet at Chatsworth "normal" car park, I think the one near the stables restaurant etc. Saturday 7.30pm is when we are booked in for good beer and pie (other foods available but pie fairly legendary at the Grouse)

If we arrive at Chatsworth for approx 9.30am +/- we should get all our Beta's together and then decide whether or not to spend a tenner looking at Alfa's!

Sorry to hear your spider cant make it Gerry, mine cant either, must be catching Huh?

Don't think I can make it over to Dronfield tonight Theo, depends what time she who occasionally should be obeyed gets in to take over child duties.
If not see you in the morning.

Cheers, Tim.

Back home ok, after more squalls on the return trip.

The Lime is in the garage with back and front doors up drying out, having had rather more wind (and rain ) under her skirt than she is used to.

Great weekend, thanks again to Tim and best wishes to all.

Hi All

Big thanks to Tim for organising, very pleasant area and quite surprised you managed to find such quiet roads for the drive. Most enjoyable evening on Saturday as well with an 'entertaining' return trip via the taxi........

Lastly, sure we still owe Tim for the lunch on Sat so will have to pick that up next year....

Fantastic weekend even if I missed out on the now legendary taxi drive on Saturday night  Grin
Thanks to Tim for all his hard work in organising a weekend which was perfect in every way.

Thanks everyone for turning up and making a great weekend despite the dodgy weather, I think we held our own next to the sea of Alfa's at Chatsworth. The quality of our cars (mine not included!) is amazing considering how hard it is for us compared to Alfa's of any generation , guessing various panels/trim etc are a little easier to come by than for our vastly superior Beta's!

Roll on next year when various coupe's and spiders will be well on the way with their respective renovations Wink

Thanks again everyone, especially Theo for the brilliant pic's.
