Yep it was man. It's mad when you think of it how much this place has grown and the amount of sound people I've met on here. Have to say the majority of the crowd I've met have been sound out. So to another 4 years

Will I give the Trident hotel a call and see if we.can get space in the car park reserved along with a lunch menu etc?

There are loads if great locations to pull in for photos like Charles Fort etc..

All we need now is good weather... Fingers crossed..

Hi All
Sounds like a great idea.

Do I bring the Alfa or the Fiat.... for the first day out?

Trident car park is tiny, and the GTV, being a large lady, with lack of power steering.....

If you want somewhere easy to pull into and park in a line there is always Charles Fort, and the Bulman pub just happens to be a short stroll for a Diet 7up. :-0

Looking forward to it already.

Aido

Hi Aido, yea I agree, in hindsight the Trident does have a tight carpark.. you're luck to have that dilemma! The GTV or the Coupe?

The firestation car park has plenty of room as does Charles fort.. spectacular shots up there with Kinsale itself in the background..


BTW any lurkers on this part of the site still undecided if you should turn up to a meet or not, please do! We're all a friendly bunch! I swear...

On the last meet I thought the tech discussions were interesting.. I'll bring the diagnostic kit along again to help out any fellow Alfesti with engine/airbag lights etc...
