Like others have said it before, fantastic day out. Great people, flowing conversation and sunny day to put the cherry on top. Sadly had to leave a bit early.
Thanks a million to everyone for coming and to Lenny for organising the gift to mark the occasion. Already have a spot on the mantle piece for it
I am just uploading the pictures of today on the computer. Will have to process them and then upload. Keep an eye out for them.
Also, have to say thanks to the significant others and children for coming along
Credit to all of ye for your cars. The stories behind each one was great to hear from the people who went through it. Got some great ideas for mods to do next
Hi all I know it is September but can ye add me to the list for the next meet as I am new to the Forum. I am living Co Limerick but I can travel to Portlaoise or Dublin as it it easy to get to on the motor ways. Chat soon Cheers Ray
Welcome to the forums Ray. Will let you know about the next meet for sure
Eating breakfast with a glorious sun outside and Seasick Steve on the radio! Couldn't have picked a better day.
Btw, can people pm me their mobile numbers in case anyone needs direction or anything else.
Well lads, looks like I've been away too long, completely missed this! After a few years on here with no meets, I turn my back for a few months and this happens, gutted! Have football tomorrow that I can't get out of at this stage, properly sickened. The Mondy might have looked well stuck in the middle of all the Foci!
Ah man, shucks! We had the thread on for a bit and it was updated fairly regularly. The Mondeo would have fitted well with the rest of the Foci I reckon. Check back when we have pictures up and next time, keep an eye out as we will try to make this a more regular thing since we rarely have any meets in Ireland. We got people coming from both North and South for the first time and hoping that we can make the meet grow from here onwards
If you need a doctors note to get out of football tomorrow, I could sort ya out
We are meeting up at 12:30pm. Bring a picnic to keep everyone entertained I'm seriously bringing food as I get cranky when I am not fed
Btw, did I say how excited I was for this. Spent 2hr this afternoon: wash, wax, vacumed the whole car. It hadn't been cleaned in god knows how long and it badly needed it. Black cars are a tad bit harder to maintain clean.
This is what I used:
Alloy and window cleaner was from Aldi and was cheap and very effective.
This is the end result:
Hope it doesn't rain tonight now. Fingers crossed. Forecast for tomorrow is 17-19 degrees and sunny! Woohoo!
Sorry for the delay in getting back but spent the afternoon cleaning the car
I tried calling Airside Ford earlier on during the day but it kept on giving me the prerecorded voice advert thing. Waited for like 10 mins but no luck. So, I think we will have to just meet up in the car park across the road from Airside Ford. It's big and I am sure we will get 7-10 spaces in a row at the far end for all the cars coming. Sorry for not sorting out this earlier on today. I was hoping Airside would call me back either way to let me know but guess they were busy.
Panoramic mode is well handy. I will have my full camera gear tomorrow and will send you all the pictures once processed.
Good to hear you coming still man. Had my car cleaned as well. Will post pictures once the menace is in bed
Spoke to Eileen in Airside Ford. She will talk to the person in charge and get them to call me back. Fingers crossed as it's meant to be a sunny day and would be nicer in their carpark. Would be great to get any form of support
