I am not sure how many owners will attend. In the past Simon Alcorn has attended and being the person who has arranged the ALPINA display within the event. However he is on holiday this year. I am not attending personally having been many, many times before. It clashes with the London Cartel Show which is actually at Ardingly West Sussex, near me.

I hope those who do attend enjoy the event.

OK bit of a switch around. The Club asked Simon to nominate someone to assist at Gaydon. I have come to an arrangement with the Club to do this as Simon is on holiday. Therefore, I shall be at Gaydon and helping organise the ALPINA and not at the London Cartel Show.

I do not want to be hypocritical. I have stated many times I am not a lover of Gaydon. That is because I have been been many, many times. However, what I am interested in is ALPINA and getting as many people for ALPINA together. We all know that there have been virtually no meets in the last two years, save for the one Charles organised and some ad hoc meets.

If people have not been to Gaydon before, then there is much to see, if they have not been for a long time they will find it has changed and there is more to see.

If people want to come and meet up with other ALPINA owners and talk ALPINA then this is a decent opportunity. Therefore my concentration on the day will be ALPINA, hope to see you there.

There are a number of people who have now indicated they will attend, the cut off date for tickets is 2nd August 19 so a bit of time for those who have said they need to get the cars ready.
