February Club Meet.

To hold a club meet on a cold, dark wet February Night was maybe being a bit optimistic, but I had faith in the hard core club members, and I wasn't disappointed. Considering the time of year, the attendance was impressive. A few of our members couldn't make the meet due to work and other commitments, but even without them the variety of vehicles was varied.
The club line up, at least it had stopped
raining which meant I could get some photo's.

Newest Outcast member was James (I think,
as you know I am no good with names!) in
his T25 Westy with a high top.

This really is a nice bus, with a full Westy
interior. James also has a bay window which
hopefully we will get to see at a future club
meet sometime. Welcome to the club mate.

Stuart and his son came along in his '71 bay
with the un-mistakable chequered front and
red oxide paint.

Ellie brought her Golf (Nitro Nancy)
sorry about the poor quality of this photo

James and Helen came over from Thame, in
Oxfordshire in Helen's Beetle (named Fanny!)

It's always good to see James and Helen, as
it is a bit of a trek for them to get over to the
club meet.

A welcome surprise was Kevin, who  came
over in his lovely T4. This is a twin
sliding door model and is such a nice colour
in the flesh,

It was great to catch up with Kevin, and we
spent some time at the bar chatting with other
club members.

Kevin is a member of the Oxfordshire based
VW Club, OXDUBZ. It's always good when
club members visit other clubs meetings.
Hopefully we can organise a cruise over to
OXDUBZ meet in the summer months.

My bay and Stuarts bay under the lights of
the pub.

Tim had to come over in his trusty Golf due to
having a slight problem with his T25 pop top.
(Hope you get the small problem sorted mate)

A pleasant surprise was the arrival of (swiss)
Dave and Angela in their daughter Louise's 
Beetle, Brum (hope that's spelt right?)

Lovely chequered front and un-usual colour
make this Bug stand out.

'Brum' making new friends...

Quite impressive line up considering the
time of year, and the weather.

Gavin is becoming a regular at our meets in
his Baja Bug. Very distinctive paint, as you
would expect from a professional paint

Gavin's Baja from behind. Love those rear
tail lights.

My '69 bay in the club line up.

Hope to see you all next month and anyone else who would like to come along, you are all welcome. Next month we'll be arranging the cruise down to the Volksworld show on Sunday 24th March, so if you are planning to go to the show, why not cruise down with us?
