Can I reserve a spot on the weekend of the 9th/10th Sept please? I'll probably come up for the day and would like to see about a coolant change in the Toyota when I'm there? Is the tiddly truck we played with last year now running? Was it just the magneto in the end?

 

I might see if I can be allowed to stay and can bring some of my homebrew and Moog and I can have a brew-off!

Yes it was the Magneto and Quicksilver senior fixed it for me.

 

Yes there will be room for Toyota fixing

 

And beer drinking is down to you, I prefer mine with all the flavour removed, chilled to death and gassed!

Mmmmmm. Moog homebrew vs Stanky homebrew vs Mrs 6C cider. I'm going to have to engage in a very very thorough appraisal of all of them before I can reach a verdict.

A local garage has had me take a rear brake calliper off it and the abs pump, but my estate still has an abs problem.

 

And the lower engine mount, but that turned out to be as duff as the one on my car so I want a refund for that!

I'll bring the last bottle of elderberry wine from 2015 too as I am very proud of it (and desperate to regain some credibility after the nectarine wine fiasco!)

 

Hopefully the batch of ~6% IPA brewing next to me will turn out well and I'll bring that too.

'Ey up! Is the 9/10 September definitely on?

Reason I ask is that it's the weekend after Chod-mondeley and I can't really do both. I'd prefer to visit the Field of Dreams on this occasion, I think.

As long as it's in one piece Sam that would be grand. The more reusing/recycling the better. It can go in the spa annexe.

I've just 'deleted' a book about armoured vehicles published in 1967 from the work library that I know some nutter on here will love.

A bit dusty as the last user took it out in 1984!

I am disappointed it doesn't have the Humber Pig in it but has Ferrets, Saladins, Saracens and all sorts of very, very heavy and rather slow chod from the end of the empire era.

FREE to the first tank-fondler who expresses an interest and is coming to FoD September.

I think more likely to be salami and a Jamie Oliver pasta dish with home grown veg. I'm favouring the field of dreams at the moment, but work may play a part.

This looks fun and I am thinking we should have a go at this for the 9/10 Sep camping weekend.

 

I think using an accurate mini digger is just too easy and we will use my 7 1/2 ton JCB 3C Mk3, worn out with slop in every joint for more of a challenge.

 

Now  who has some ducks with hooks in there backs?

This Saturday we could do with some car stripping to clear out some dead cars that need parts salvaging because I have agreed to take two more project cars for others.

 

Anybody fancy taking a car apart?
