Default Mini-meet and safe-wash demo at MJ's, June 18th.

Hi all,

We're having a mini-meet at mine on June the 18th which will include a demonstration of how look after ceramic-coated cars for those who are new to these things. Nicola from FiftyFive Details will be doing the training, I'll be holding buckets, Bert will be in attendance to cover the event for Pro Detailer magazine, and Mike will be supplying the banter

Currently we'll have five or six D2s, with room for plenty more if anyone fancies a day out

Sorry, as much as I'd like to, I have no chance. Work has suddenly gone manic.

I haven't got any banter ATM. I'll get some. I can bring the BBQ.

Tempting. Would be very tempting if I could leave Herman with you for some fine fettling...

I really should come along to these events, I get so much help and support from A8 parts and the people here but never met anyone!

I may be around on Saturday, I will check.

This is down in sunny Devon if memory serves me right?

We'll be there, though the weather forecast is decidedly vague at the moment. Friday does look really hot and sunny, but...
Earlier today the BBC was showing a nice warm (23c) sunny day on Saturday but now it's still warm but potentially raining all morning!

No worries, I understand - I'm still enjoying your other handiwork

If you can, you should really get along to one of these meets, if only to meet the people. I joined the forum in June 2013 and have attended the annual meets since 2014 (except 2016, but that was because of the ExplorA8tion Ireland! tour that followed immediately after) and every one has been a joy. Great people, great cars, great events and great scenery.
