The club will have a marquee with Merchandise, Membership

Cheers, Gary.

I have been a full member on and off for 20 years and have never been to Victoria farm. My question is do I have to pay for my wife to come with me?

You would need to contact Martin who runs the spares to see what he is planning on bringing up.
you should find his details in the club mag.

Quick hijack to save creating another thread.

I'm heading down on Saturday to deliver an engine to another member. Due to work/family commitments I can't do it any other time for the foreseeable future, and my van will be off the road for a good few months until I sort another engine out.

Just checking it will be ok to pop in for a wee bit on Saturday evening to unload the engine? I'll be in a Saab 9-5 estate due to lack of van. I won't be hanging around long as I'll have to get back up to Newcastle the same day.

Cheers,

John
