The first meeting of this year is supposed to take place tomorrow but with my modern being involved in an accident, I could be totally without transport because the assessors are taking it away tomorrow and the hire car hasn't turned up yet. This means that I might not be able to attend the meeting unless I hang around in Leeds after work for 4 hours. The train I use for commuting to work stops at Bramley station which is within walking distance of the Hollies.

Trev, if you're reading this would you be able to pick me up if you're going to the meeting and I'm without transport?

I'll sent out an e-mail tonight.

It wasn't a bad start to the year with me, Trev (thanks for the lift there and back), Roger & Kath.

The next meeting will be on the 1st of February.

At first, I thought that it was going to be a non-event but Kath & Roger turned up while I was still sitting in the car (I was reading the mag so I didn't see them go in the club). and Keith came not long after. Kath & Roger are now club members once again. I'm hoping I can entice them back on to this forum. I know that Kath had a bad experience on the forum. Kath's 1500TC is going to be featured on a TV programme. It will probably be a blink-or-you-will-miss-it moment. Keith has registered his Sprint with the same agent so his car could also appear on a TV programme at some point in the future.

The next meeting will take place on March 1st.

Last night was just Trev, Bob and me. On the way there, I called in at Steve W's place. He has offered me a lot of Dolomite/FWD parts because he is moving house and he can't take them with him. The first hour was the 3 of us going through the parts. Trev has kindly offered to help store some of them in addition to what he needs for his Sprint resto and Bob has had a few parts that he needed including a rectangular headlight unit. There were a few parts I could've done with but that's sometimes the way it goes. It didn't end there. Among the parts haul were some sealed beam inner headlights. At the last meeting Roger & Kath were after some headlights and I suggested a halogen conversion as they way forward. After the meeting I went over to Roger & Kath's place and they now have the sealed beam units along with a single line brake master cylinder and a set of rear brake shoes. On the way home I had a scare with the Citroen (check out my Citoren thread) but it seems to be fine now.

The next meeting will take place on the 5th of April.

Last night's meeting was a record turnout with 7 of us and 2 club cars. There was me, Trev, Bob, Keith, Kath, Roger and a new face in the shape of Ian who is from Sheffield whose forum name is "jud". Ian came in his carmine 1850HL which is a rolling restoration.

The other club car was the immaculate Sapphire 1500TC that belongs to Kath.

The next meeting will take place on the 3rd of May.

It was just me, Bob and Keith. Keith turned up in his Sprint so we had one club car. Bob is going to get in touch with the Lakeland Car Museum to see what dates are available for NDD.

The next meeting will be on June the 7th.

It was just me, Trevor and Keith. I was offered a possible nugget of wisdom in my quest to get my 1850 running again. We also got a preview of a calendar that Keith is compiling from his vast collection of night time train photographs.

The next meeting will take place on the 5th of July.

Unfortunately, nobody else turned up (Trev, Keith, Roger & Kath did let me know they weren't able to make it) so I waited until 8.45 and went home.

The next meeting will take place on the 6th of September.
