*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
Neither Jim nor I could make the Lincoln meet happening today so we have uni laterally decided on a Lunch time " mini meet ", perhaps anyone in the area could make it in their lunch time, time could be adjusted to suit if required, neither Jim or I are tied to a time.

Location - Little Chef on the A17 just east of the A17/A16 roundabout, Texaco Garage site.

Time - 1230 on Wednesday 8th October.

Events - Lunch, chat, try to think of future events for the Lincs lot and a good old whinge !

Would be nice if anyone else could make it but realize that's probably not going to happen but the invitation is there !

Re: Lincs Midday Midweek Mini Meet

I'll be there! If anyone works in Spalding or Boston and isnt doing anything in their lunch break, you could always pop over and have a quick brew with us. I am not working that day and Nige is bit flexible with time so if you have a slightly later lunch break or prior arrangements we can maybe work something out. That means you MARK!!!

I go on my dinner from 12:00 til 1:00. I'm on the van Tuesday so I'll time how long it takes for me to get there.

If that would be ok Nige, I'm guessing it would take me about 15 minites to get there.

Well I'll be in the car park at about 12 so anytime you can make it Mark, sure Jim will be the same. 15 mins should be OK for your travel time, I'm planning to leave here at about 1145 and will be bringing a guest, he's not really a car fanatic so how could I pass up the chance to bore him a bit !

Hope a few more can make it.

Re: Lincs Midday Midweek Mini Meet

Morning Mark ( and Jim if you are here ), see you tomorrow. Weather forecast is for dry and sunny so better pack the Sou Westers then !

We'd like to see others there too if only for a flying visit so if you can........

On the BBC page - hardly ever ! Should have been raining yesterday and dry today until lunch time, right !

Thinking about a car wash too, just thinking..........

New Camera eh. Got a cheapo off eBay earlier this year, 8mp and all sorts of bells and whistles which are of limited interest to me these days. It's an Advent which I think is a PC World brand and I'm pleased with it. The biggest factor was that I wanted one that takes AA batteries and this suited me fine. Got 3x optical zoom and a lot more digital zoom and it cost me 28, certainly far from a good camera but at the price ?

CUL.

Not a clue about cameras! Seems ok Didnt like the fact that it took me around 2 minutes to decide on the camera and a good 5-10 minutes arguing with the sales assistant trying to sell me a protection plan. He just wouldnt take "no I dont bloody want one." If I was easily intimidated or female I would probally have buckled and spent the extra 60. :9:

A nice little meet, perhaps we should make a regular lunch club . Nice to meet you for the first time Jim and of course nice to see Mark again.

I'll stick my piccies up tomorrow, I have a feeling that they will all be very similar and will be just metal and not flesh, think we are all camera shy, in my case with good reason. So fellow AO's think yourselves lucky, nice cars and no ugly Nige to spoil the view. ( I hope ! )
