Sunny/Wet Lincolnshire in late April [Tuesday 24th]

Postby Cluny » Thu Jan 12, 2012 7:23 pm

Well I hope :))
Anyone is welcome to join me at Coningsby again this year .
No firm date yet but will be someday between the 23rd and 27th of April [depends when the BBMF DA's are , should know soonish] .
Reasons for Coningsby again are :
A) I like Coningsby .
B) If the weather becomes "Cluny" or its dead , we can seek shelter in the BBMF Vistitor Centre or nearby East Kirkby .

Heres a quick [well , 45+ minute] reminder of last years meet up ;)

Took me a couple of goes to get it open, but that's because I have a REALLY old copy of Excel that's no longer supported and I probably shouldn't even be using it but I can't be bothered to upgrade :)) :))


Thursday looks to be the back up day.
