Roy, You have to fill in the application form & sent it to Andy Blakemore.



I will email you a copy of the form & Andy's address, you will need to move quickly though as the BCLM then normally send confirmation you have been accepted. If you just turn up they won't let your car in.



It is a great event.

Come on guys play the game - you need to send the form and an sae in plenty of time otherwise I get it in the neck from Andy.....

..."Who may I ask has advertised at this late stage the BCLM event?, the closing date was several weeks ago, that's why I have never advertised it after the March newsletter. In the last few days I've received 3 or 4 applications, non with SAE's (as always requested in my advert), all have put the wrong details on their application forms, so my corrections are going to look very suspicious to the organiser." ..................

."I have spoken to one guy this evening who tells me its advertised all over the forum, telling everyone to send me their forms - ITS TOO LATE ! Can you please arrange to have this message removed immediately, and replaced with one saying 'Anyone who has tried to book in the last four weeks, they may not receive their formal invitation in time due to their late application'.

As you know BCLM have already sent out the invitations with the nominated club areas, if too many late applications arrive there may not be enough physical room for them all and it will be too late for the organiser to rearrange the site.

Whilst I am sending off all the forms, there are going to be some very disappointed applicants who will think the reason for not receiving theirs is down to me. It is not, its down to someone advertising without checking the facts beforehand. "



Nuff said?

Hi Gary would be great to meet you on Sunday. If you are coming in the Rickman and preregistered it's free. If you are planning on coming as a normal visitor to the museum the website visitheartofengland.com has two for one vouchers you can print off. Every little helps.

Well only 5 Rickmans turned up,weather was fantastic most of the day.

It was great to meet Garry & Jennie for the 1st. time, plus of course everyone else. Roy's Ranger has improved greatly since I last saw it at Stoneleigh. Plus there were 3 other Rickman owners on the Quantum area, including myself.
