Please stick with Grasshopper as that is what I've told SEKZ members. You can add me to your list (370Z). Possibly Dean Halsey (240Z), Tony Anastasiades (300ZX) and other SEKZ members.

Sunday 28th May: South Meet Anyone?

OK chaps,

Tank of fuel, can of oil, bottle of water and some tools / spares in the car. The z is ready for action. See you at 09:00 at The Grasshopper(TN16 2EU).

http://www.grasshopperinn.co.uk/

My mobile is 07710 fifty, fifty five, fifty (I don't like writing the number out in a public forum due to the automated junk mail merchants hence the have words half numbers). If for whatever reason you are late or unable to arrive, please let me know.

Also please save in your phones for the journey in case of any mishaps/breakdowns etc.

Very excited about tomorrow and looking forward to driving with you fine gentlemen.

All the best,
Ali

Sunday 28th May: South Meet Anyone?

Fellas and Michelle,

Just a quick note of thanks for turning up and making it an awesome day!! Such a sincere pleasure to spend the day with you all and your great cars.



I've learned a couple of things for the next time:

1. itinerary with map of route and postcodes to key locations on the route printed for all to keep in car. Key meeting points en route.
2. Get to the pub before 12:00 for lunch and start earlier to avoid the Sunday drivers.

My apologies to Len and son for losing you guys before the lunch stop, I actually went the wrong way myself at Bunny Lane.

Some Awards:
1. Super charger of the day: Mr Feeney - really nice super charged 370z that barely stretched her legs following the older metal.

2. Immaculate 240 of the day: Len. Possibly the most perfect 240z I've ever seen!!!

3. Ratsun of the day: JohnyMD who incidentally got far more interest from passersby than the rest of us put together!!! Don't bother with the fancy paint work and wheels guys, a rat is the way forward; complete with bullet shaped wheel nuts!


4. Hooligan "wheel spin in front of a pub audience" of the day: Toopy!!! At least he made the corner without mounting the curb as I did!!

5. Stunning 300zx of the day: Charles we now have to call him Mr. Wolf!!!

6. Orange Z of the day: Tim (shame you had to bail, we missed you at lunch etc. Hope BA were kind to you).

7. Smoker of the day: me!!! MrF, I checked the dipstick again in my level garage and look what I used for 101 miles!!!!



8. Food of the day: the Sunday carvery at the Squirrel Inn was the dog's danglies!




9. Roads of the day: The route back from lunch to Groombridge tea rooms was awesome and stored for next time. Although the roads from Hever to Groombridge were pretty damn good too!



I would like to organise a next event in a few weeks to head down to Goodwood so that we can soak up some Sussex roads and pick up members from the other end of the South.

Wishing you all a superb rest of Bank Holiday!

Looks like a super day out. Maybe I'll try to join you for the next one and visit my mum while I'm there.

Anyway great picture of John looking at the dinners with envy - on a diet John?

What a great day out. Weather was very kind to us and the company was great. Do I not get an award for getting lost the most? started they day by going to the wrong grasshopper pub (although it was only half mile away) and my satnav took my the the final location 24 miles from where I was supposed to be!! Got there in the end though and definitely up for the next one.

Thank you for organising it.
