South of France Scimitar Sortie - 26/27 September 2015

Post by DARK STAR » Wed Aug 05, 2015 11:58 am

Jörg has just reminded me that I haven't posted this year's Sortie on the forum.
Anyone from foreign parts will be equally welcome, deadline for bookings is 15 august.

The text is in French, still no time to translate it but it's not complicated and the links give more details ...

Chris, it might be worth dropping Peter Aston a line, I spoke to him on thursday and he said he was thinking of coming. I don't think he's on scimitarweb so he probably won't see your message ;) .

Looks like being a good'un.
Here is the entry list, to which must be added a late mystery entry (Scimitar Sabre) making NINE cars in all.
Hope they all turn up!

The weather forecast looks really good for this weekend :D , I hope all the Reliants live up to their name :w , and that you all have a great time. Sorry I can't join you on this one, I shall have to content myself with a local static display; but I shall meet some of you at Morges next week.

Oh dear, sorry to hear that! Looks like I "jinxed" somebody! :( Perhaps I should have wished you "rotten luck" , or "break a leg", then nothing would go wrong! :wink:
