Hi Guys,

Here's the poster for this year's Bordo vintage slot car meeting, and we also finally have the rules and regs... If you've come already you'll be getting an invitation package soon, and if not, contact me or Samy (email on poster) so we can send you the info.

It's a 2-man (or woman) team race in 1/24 scale this year - something a little different in honor of the Le Mans theme.

If you want to show your projects (I'm sure you're all almost finished already...), please use the Vintage and Collectors thread.

Hope to see you there!

Don

Hi Don, my flight and hotel were booked Aons ago, look forward to receiving my pack.

As ever I won't be starting my cars until May18th earliest as that is when i finish my year 2 of my degree...

So, almost a month of build time, 2 cars + 2 spares, what could possibly go wrong?

See you in the Oirish bar!

Sorry Partner, you will need to build a car so that

1. We have a car where the paint is dry
2. We have a car that actually handles with SOME grip
3. We have a car that you are prepared to drive

But I will build at least one for 'evaluation' by my team mate!

Looking forward to it...

News Bulletin - there is no bulletin!

Well boys and girls, we were wondering why no registration forms had come in - and then we suddenly realized we hadn't sent them out with the rest of the info pack! So you'll be getting a registration form by email in a day or two, and please let me or Samy know if you don't...

You know, as you get older, the gray cells seem to migrate to the hair, and leave the brain...

Quite right team mate and if I had continued with the ferrari 512S I think that would have been outside the date but as it is a 365 P2 is fine, and it is coming along nicely!

REMINDER!!!!

Folks, things are getting closer, and it would be nice to let Samy know if you're going to be coming to the Saturday night dinner. It's our now traditional personal chef Didier, along with his charming wife, daughter and crew, and the menu looks very, very good!

Please let me or Samy know if you're going to be at the dinner...

Merci beaucups!

Don

Me and Brad will be at the dinner, James will to I guess (no Kelly this year
) Derek will probably not. (doesn't like the confinement of the slot car room)
