The itinerary for Friday/Saturday is attached.

The planned longer drive out has been replaced by the Fiat meet. Any questions my number is 07802860165.

We have found the brief window between the lifting of the local restrictions and the new national ones on Monday, so perhaps the last time to enjoy our cars together.....

Chaps,
Iím now almost certainly out for this weekend having just found a crack in one of my front wishbones.  
Iíve got a few ideas but I need to reassess what Iím doing with these and Iíll most probably have to catch you later.

Chris, I have if not exactly a spare at least one I'm not using at the moment - I could bring it up on Friday for fitting Friday evening / sat morning if you were OK to nurse the car to Shipley ?

Hi Stuart,
This is tempting, and it's a very kind offer.  My plan always was to drive over on Saturday morning anyway but I hadn't banked on arriving to a roadside wishbone change; and whilst it should only be a balljoint, a couple of big locating bolts and bushes and an anti-roll bar, I'll need to think more about the risks of driving on it and/or a roadside swap.

Iím back in.  Stuart and I have been chatting offline and now have a plan, and a wishbone, that should get me across at lunchtime.  Look forward to seeing you all.

Another example of why this forum exceeds all others - it works in both the virtual and actual worlds. Well done Stuart.

1. Mark, are you joining us?

2. Chris, there is always the mighty Panda? My son Jack joined the Panda club after we couldn't find an Ypsilon at a decent price......

Neil
 
Thank you so much for organising Betameeta 20. It was a great day for me; lovely to meet new Beta fans, catch up again with those Iíd met before and, of course, enjoy a smashing burger back at yourís later.

Thanks also to Stuart. I will keep my right foot under control and look after your wishbone for now and Iíll back in touch soon when Iíve got my own sorted.

Cheers all,

Chris

As Chris has said, many thanks to Neil, Nicky and all of you for a wonderful weekend. 
It was great to catch up and put faces to user names. With my spyder having been laid up for 8 years, the tour has reawakened my confidence in her and I am determined to get her finished properly (Tim that means less flames out of the exhaust!)
Thanks to all,
Gerry and Oli

Yes, Massive Thanks to Neil & Nicky for your hospitality & tour of Saltaire, brilliant drive and brilliant company as ever.

Now 100% convinced the world would be a better place if everyone could be tearing around in Beta's , to happy to be causing aggro & too busy fixing 'niggles' to think of anything else!!!

Gave the coupe some extra wellie on the way home to make up for Howard & Luci being absent,

Cheers all. Smiley

Glad that this went ahead and that everyone seems to have had a great time.  Very disappointed that I was unable to make this, especially given that I reside in God's Own County!    Car has been on axle stands for several weeks with the exhaust system in pieces whilst I slowly recover from an unexplained bout of tennis elbow.  Feeling strong enough now to be wielding spanners again so hopefully will be back running again in next few days.
