Ninja,
kicking Porca butt is not a nice thing to do.

All cars are lovely in their own special way.

Rich,

I know, I know. Mind you, you're batting for both teams (oh err). No, I'm just trying to wind up Daz, Lee and the other 996TT guys. Actually looking forward to a ride in their cars. Clearly its gonna be my butt that gets kick, but I'll enjoy all the same.

Hope you can make.

Hi Guys

this all seems to be coming together nicely for sunday 22nd september.

Manu, starting from your premises seems a good idea.

Steve is working on a route and I'm sure Manu knows a few tunnels. If our route could take in the Virginia Water meet for a while and meet some other PHers that would be great.

Just need to goad everyone on the Porsche and Ferrari boards into attending.

A few things outstanding:

1. Where is Manu's business premises and what time do we want to get there and then what time do we wish to leave there. I'll leave that for the local boys to discuss.

2. Rich, what side are you batting?

3. Do we need to book a table at a pub for a bite to eat. If so we'll need to know exact numbers.

If we can keep general planning and discussion on this thread, I'll now post a thread on the Ferrari board for definite attendees to state their confirmation with details of vehicle (get thinking Rich!)

cheers

DAZ

PS Ninja, not biting.......PORSCHE RULES!!!

The Pub at Virginia Water dosn't take bookings,so first come first served.The V/Water meet is due to start at about 11am ,so if we are meeting at Manu's office first we should aim for about 1030 I would think.See link at www.wheatsheafhotel.com

I went to the last PH meeting at Chatsworth House. The start time isn't very important as people turned up over a few hours. Best to let most people get there first if want to make 'an entrance'!
If you don't mind a Tamora in your midst I may meet you guys for a blast first?
Cheers.... Andrew

Bugger, (almost) definately can't make it, going to collect wifey's new rollerskate. Unless of course the delivery is delayed. Again. Which is, of course, entirely possible. So might be there, might not. Everyone got that? Ninj, I think a Saaarfend meet will have to be done sometime soon - perhaps we could take in a couple of these clubs (casino's?) you know?

Steve, sounds good to me although I won't be able to commit until the the week before?
The Tamora's going into the dealer's for some minor work that week so I'll hope to have it back by the weekend? I'm being promised a Cerbera/Tuscan as a courtesy car so it won't be the end of the world if I don't!
Cheers.... Andrew

You know I want to do this but not sure if I can so haven't committed yet.... I'm in the US the week running up to it, in Germany on the following Monday and may have to fly straight to Germany without coming home at the weekend. I'll be there if I can.

It sounds like you guys got a nice little 'meet' coming together.

Kev: If you can't make it due to prior engagements, I could always offer my services (Easy Tigers......) to drive your car to the venue on your behalf

Think of it as: Being there in soul, not in person
Lets face it...... Your 360 is the benchmark car, and it would be a shame for it not to make an appearance !!!

Sounds like a fantastic idea to me

Glad to hear the Ferrari tour was a success
Jay.

Guys, our offices are located on the High Street in Egham, on the Bypass side. If any of you know where Maranello Sales is, we are located on the first exit of the roundabout about (50 yards down)if you were coming from the London/M25 side of town. Once you're on our end of the High Street if you end up driving past the Shell garage on your right you've gone too far!! Hope this helps.

Guys - I will be able to make it: YES!!!!

So far we have (by vehicle):
- Porsche 911 Turbo Flatnose (Steve)
- Porsche 911 Turbo (Daz)
- Ferrari F355 Spyder (Ninja)
- Ferrari F355 Spyder (Rich)
- Ferrari F355 F1 Tubi (Bernard)

Here is a site to help you isolate our location. Turn left at Egham bypass (Maranellos is on your right). Take your first left again and our car park is immediately on the right:

www.maranellosales.com/ferrari/contact/location.asp

Kevin - your absence is wholly unacceptable! Gareth - are you sure you can't make it?

PLEASE ADD TO LIST: Make contact offline too - Domster? UV? - (Turbofree you ought to be there mate to delight in the sounds of Tubi!) - anyone left out? Guy - where's the Ultima?
