Hi there, Victor Gallucci came to the Sidlesham meet today and approached me recognising BM and the 'Solent Renegades' sticker in the windscreen.

He asked me to reiterate that anyone wishing to attend the shows makes sure they register with him well in advance, as he has to make the local law enforcement aware of exactly how many vehicles will be attending, and also so that he can arrange ferry crossings for anyone coming.

He has also asked for someone 'in charge' from our group to contact him on the telephone number above for a discussion about the event.

I said I would pass on the message and that I have done.

MK69 out..
Bit too far away to decide if we are going yet. Last time we went we had a few mishaps on the ferry but hopefully that won't happen again. BM just managed to squeeze under the railings and we held our breath all the way back as it was a triple decker not a double as when we went over. Plus Bazza decided not to start just as we were to board hence the reason we missed the double decker. Apart from that it was a really nice day over there. Felt like we were on our holidays!! Would be nice to stay over and go to Newport and Ryde but will wait til nearer the time.
