Dave/everyone, I'm very disappointed to say I won't be able to join you but please will someone send me an account of the day and some photos as soon after the event as possible. I can then try and get them into the next FN.

I hope that the meeting is the success it deserves to be.

Well it was forecast to be a rainy day, but thankfully we only got a few spots of rain in Coventry. That being said, it was chilly and (mostly) overcast on Saturday, and a definitely-smaller number of the public were out and about in Coventry than during last year's meet.

Unfortunately, the same was true of the turnout we had of A40s. My dad and I met up with Dave East (Easty1887) just outside Norton Canes, but our convoy ended up being just our two cars, with Dave leading the way to Coventry in Oscar. We took the A5 nearly as far as Atherstone before heading onto B-roads for the rest of the journey. We arrived on the plaza outside the museum after an uneventful drive and were greeted by Mr The Rave, but no A40s.

Thankfully, about an hour later, we were joined by Pete and a third A40.

We knew in advance that several people weren't going to be there for various reasons, let alone the weather, but I think we all expected a few more people. It didn't dampen the conversation though, and it was nice simply to meet up. I ended up learning a few maintainance tips and, after a year and a half, was finally was able to take Valentina to a club event, which alone put a smile on my face!

All in all, not a bad day out, though here's hoping for a better turnout next time!
