About the friday morning breakfast I have a question James... Is there a bar in the hotel? ::)
Bearing in mind that we all meet after a long period, (50th anniv. Germany) and  remembering 
the ambiance up the hill there , I would say a 7.30 breakfast rather then a 6.30 one, would be
realistic.
Traffic will not be that much of an issue I think, driving in group over there the more...
And indeed it will be a long day for most of us.

Still looking for a seat to the Goodwood Revival Friday if someone is going without a passenger.

Any thoughts, words of wisdom, guesses (wild or other wise) about what we might expect for the weather?? Or "Come prepared for just about anything"

Jon

This past weekend we had blue skies, no wind and 70 degrees (in old money), we had cloudy skies, a stiff breeze and 65 degrees, and yesterday (being a public holiday) we had no wind, 60 degrees and a deluge

Today, it's windy, grey and mid 60s. But no rain at the moment. At least where I am! So yes... come prepared!

You guys are so formal British. I dont remember seeing anyone wearing clothes like that other than my Grandfather and Great Uncle.

 In my 60’s it was either

informal or formal Hip

I do remember my sister wearing clothes like that.  My purple cordoroy flares and pasely shirts were complementary. :D :D :D :D

I had a Mini Moke that was really cool late in the mid to 60’s

Garry,
If you would pay the extortionate landing fees and I wasn't going under the knife on Friday I would fly you in! It certainly beats sitting in traffic jams even in a Pagoda.

Just in case I've missed something, should we be expecting anything through the post
or just show up at the Rhinefield hotel?

In case the email of a week or so back was spammed out...

Seeing as the Polish gang have gone and organised their own cross-border get together (I wonder if they are going to the Ukraine...:-! ) (
http://www.sl113.org/forums/index.php?topic=21011.0 ), in the spirit of a wider Europe, I guess I need to do a name change. Except the Rally
Plates arrived today and they say European Event. Sorry Stan: Too late my friend!

I came across the attached this morning and thought it might help you get a little better prepared - or dare I say excited -  for Goodwood
Revival. On the map, the "tax-free parking" (our cars) are normally close to the area marked "Over The Road" on the right hand side of the
map. Hard copy of these pages will be in your welcome pack/Rally Book on arrival. In there will also be a name card with your dining choices
printed on it. That will need to be brought to drinks (from 6pm) and placed on a table before we eat so the wait staff can work out who's
having what (and I don't steal your beef).

There's a second email coming to you from me today or tomorrow regarding food AT Goodwood and a couple of logistics items for the Friday.

We have 64 people for Thursday's dinner at Rhinefield. About the same number at Goodwood. 67 for lunch and at least some of the drive on
Saturday and 64 (but not the same 64!) for dinner that night. That's going to be over 30 Pagodas at some point! All being well, we'll collect
3 Pagodas on the way from Rhinefield to Brooklands - assuming we are not ALL lost... I am thinking of running a quiz to determine who the
joiners/leavers are but that would mean I'd have to work out who they are myself!

A couple of logistic issues...
On Thursday 11th, aim for
Rhinefield House Hotel
Rhinefield Ornamental Drive
Brockenhurst
Hampshire
SO42 7QB

+44 845 072 7516

This is south of the western end of the A27/M27 near Southampton. In Lyndhurst, it's easiest to follow the A35/Bournmouth signs and the
hotel is signed (to the left) about 5km outside of Lyndhurst.

Parking is not gated and is outside - unlike Brooklands (Saturday night) which IS gated but still outside - but is illuminated and far enough
away from anywhere to be a deterrent!

We can check in from 2pm. If you are earlier, they may still be working up a room for you but there IS a spa/pool at which to pass the time
until 6pm when the bar opens...

The latest edition of Octane magazine has a Goodwood article entitled "Arrive in Style" - double page picture of a dark blue/tan 230 with the
hub cap logos blanked followed by a half page on what to arrive in if the sun is shining. Pray for sun!
