I had my 75 in at CM this week for new wheel bearings and they were saying about their ideas for enhancing the BBQ day. apart from beers and BBQ (outside help for the catering) they are thinking about a bouncy castle possibly with sumo suits. Sounds like a laugh.

I'm thinking this could be a significant outlay, what's everyone's thoughts about making a small (optional?) contribution, maybe 5? Or a donation box even. It's my idea, just to show a sort of appreciation for their efforts.
Don't want to scare anyone away by suggesting its an entry fee, just would seem fair to help a little, so lets discuss.

Any thoughts?

Like this idea Colin (I won't need to wear a suit) will need a significant increase in RSVP numbers to make it worthwhile me thinks ....see what feedback we get from others , no activity in the RSVP side this week ....maybe everyone has booked to get away from our increasingly typical summer ....

Just a few days left to register your interest in what promises to be a good day , and if this weather keeps up will make it a BBQ to remember (no pressure Lynette) ....seen loads local folks including a few newbie's posting up little niggles , your chance to get to the root of the problem.

Daughter comes first Frank , hope she gets better soon. Had a great day thanks to Chick, Lynette and the CM team who put on a great event with some superb BBQ supplied and cooked to perfection by Mama Mia catering . I took home a doggy bag and don't have a dog!!! Excellent prize draws (I won a GT holdall) and a guess the car competition. The kids had a ball on the bouncy castle. Excellent demonstration by Forte and a some lovely kit on display from Autosportivo , had to stay clear as my wallet is a bit airy at the moment. Snap On Tools also had a mobile drool shop to show off a daunting range of tools. Thanks to everyone that came along despite the poor weather , nothing like a day chatting with fellow Alfisti. Will start an image thread and start it off with some snaps from my toy camera. Hopefully Fraser will add some professional pictures later. Stuart
