Here's a thought, because of the miles involved it can put people off coming to a "central" place for a "Forum Crank-up". What about if we organized smaller "local" meetings?

I have a largish garden and could fit 20 or 30 engines in here, if other members with a similar garden could do the same then we could have a national crank-up on a local scale.

Would be a good way to meet the local forum members as there are a lot of people on here local to me and I don't know them.

That way anti-social buggers like me could start an engine in their own back garden and pretend they were joining in!

Well, yes could do Nick, all you would need is a web cam.

Although it wasn't my first thought.

I vote that we all head to Appletop Towers for a crank up. Plenty of cherry cake and other goodies, courtesy of Lady Appletop, to keep our stamina up and if you can fit a few caravans around the grounds we will have everything we need. Would volunteer myself of course, but I only live in a terrace and have no grounds!
Over to you Rob........

Spot on, just got to get my Norfolk passport updated now Rob. Do I need to grow an extra digit as well?
