Festival of the Unexceptional 2019 - free camping and free breakfast available!

Recommended Posts

Wet weather HQ at FoD was erected by the prep squad last weekend.

The other point is that weather forecasters seem to be able to predict that rain is coming, but how much and when it arrives still seems some sort of black art form that computers can't manage accurately so bring sun tan cream as well!

Pity Bill Foggitt has been dead for years

I think they just hid the tickets from him because his cars are to posh!

Come to the FoD and I am sure there will be a spare seat for you.

Up until a few weeks ago I didn't have a qualifying vehicle and I though the tickets would have sold out before now. Having found out that there are still some left I've booked the 205 in for its first show. I guess I'll have to give it a clean now (and get those new tyres). 🙂

I've now made space in my inbox. :oops:

Won't be coming in the Y10 - even if I can get it running right before then, the MOT ran out on Friday so that's a no-go unfortunately.

Cx?

I was tempted - that's also now out of test, although only by a couple of weeks so I could potentially plead ignorance if pulled over.  Think the Carina E is the safer bet though.

Would anyone be interested in a revival of this event, which was trialled (successfully I think) during last year's Festival of the Unexceptional and Field of Dreams weekend.
On Saturday 20th July 2019 the Silvers will provide a free breakfast of bacon or sausage sandwiches, toast and tea or coffee to any shiters and their travelling companions attending the FotU or the FoD on that day. You do not have to be attending the FotU or camping at the FoD to be eligible, but, in order to avoid ad hoc arrivals and departures, you will need to be at the FoD by 08:45 on the day (PM Six-cylinder for the location if you haven't been before), from where we will drive in convoy to the Silvers' abode in Buckingham (about 4 miles) for food and drink consumption, then at around 09:30 those who are going to the FotU will continue the convoy to Claydon House (about 8 miles), while any others return to the FoD. Directions from the FoD to the Silvers and onward to the FotU will be provided in case the convoy gets separated.

So that we know the number of people that we are catering for, please add your name, plus the number of partners, kids, hangers-on or whoever else is travelling with you to the list below if you are interested in attending.

1. Slowsilver
2. Quicksilver

3. davidfowler2000
4. Mrs Brownnova
5. Brownnova
6. Catsinthewelder  + 2 kids

 

 

Is it too late to add to the list?  I'm not sure how I'm getting down but I'm determined to come.

No problem. The list will stay open until 8:00am Friday morning so plenty of time for any more interested parties to sign up.

May I be included please? The plan is to trundle down in the Toledo, hopefully if I can get the tracking done on Weds or Friday and a bit more paint possibly* Not too bothered about the paint in all honesty.  This will be the longest trip in the Toledo for many years. I might be a little scared.

Slowsilver - is a genuine BL workshop manual for the Maxi of interest?

If it is I’ll bring it down with me, if not it will stay in the garage. This is the type that came in a plastic folder:

Ooh, yes please!
I have a very tatty one which only covers the early Mark 1 version with the 1500 engine and the Mk3 Cortina-style dash.
Your one has a different cover and looks like it might be a later version. It also looks to be in much better condition.

Looks like there's going to be more shiters at the FoD than there were at Shitefest!

Anyone heard if Exiled Tat Gatherer is going to make it?  I still have his jacket in the back of the CX.  Last I heard he was flat out with work - don't know if anyone is in contact with him via social media?

I'm going from the in-laws house. For us to arrive at 8:45am, we'd need to leave the house by 7:35am at the latest. As someone who doesn't do mornings, I don't think that's going to happen!

      As mentioned on the thread for Northern Powerhouse Classic, I can't make it on Tuesdays anymore.
       
      I'm sure the now longstanding tradition of eating a slab o'cow at Glossop spoons will continue regardless, but would anyone be up for a more Northerner version?
       
      Proposal: 2nd or 3rd Wednesday of the month, so as not to clash with NP Classic.
       
      Place: The White House Pub & Restaurant, Littleborough, OL15 0LG:

      Motorway access isn't great but who wants to drive on motorways? Has big car park and beer and food.
       
      First meeting on Wednesday 13th Feb? 7ish PM?
       
      Any takers?

      Just returned from the 2cv, 24hr race. Three classes compete Minis, Euro 2cv, and Dyane Hybrids, and 2cv. There’s also some classic Citroen porn, and a weird Wagon R

      I'm going to be in Lewes on Monday night and have tentatively agreed to meet @SierraMikeHotel. Tentative because I'll be with Mrs/baby Egg, so they will hold a veto.
      Tesco's car park seems to be a goer. Anyone else around?

      Hallo peeps.
      Discussions have been discussed and we have decided there will be a Cannock meet on Saturday 23rd March featuring Scotoshite and The Midlands Massiv.
      Usual format to ensue. Meet Friday evening for a dinner, stay the night, 0900 at The Trucker's Rest for breakfast then round to the auctions for the auction game. Afternoon activity up for discussion as usual.
      Interest?

      EDIT!
      Normal format to ensue. Date now Sat 7th September 2019 for the main event. Scotland will stay over at Premier Inn Cannock South on Friday 6th. See here -
