Don't forget the 17th of April is National drive it day.
Gives you all time to organise something.

I'll be driving mine over the weekend, but it will be for a re-union, out Friday morning to Lincolnshire, home Sunday via Duxford.

Has anyone got any ideas of an event/cruise that we could do on this day?

All ideas greatly received!!

Hahaha, that actually just made me laugh out loud!
Anything more specific? A cruise? or what?
A cruise to Herne Bay for fish and chips or what?

Come on BRAINSTORM!

Had a thought, I will now go and have a rest.

Were is the halfway pont between Porky's, EC's meet place, and the Red Arrows.
Both clubs meet of lunch, then a cruise somewere for evening meal and wets.
Then a cruise, or dash, home

I am going back 20 odd years but I can remember a place on the old A25 near Westerham.
At the time it was a huge Inn, plenty of room for a crowd to sit and eat.
Was regular for transport as well
Can remember the fire place, was a dug out in the middle of the pub with a large copper Chimney and not logs but tree trunks thrown in as fuel.

I'll see if I can find the name
