  Skoda Fabia vRS

right guys, 17 of you have paid so the day will go ahead

im still waitin on payment from

Darren F
Kelly J
Rhys T

ive got breakfast orders from everyone apart from Rhys
and Matt, do you still not want anything ?

breakfast is pay on the day, and im giving them the order very soon,
possibly Tuesday

the meeting place in the morning will be The Trafford Centre Car Park,
as most of you will know there are about 4 car parks, probably more
including the emergency ones, anywayz, i propose to all meet on the
one opposite debenhams, now as your approachin the trafford centre entrance
you need to be in the right hand lane, the left lane doesnt go to the trafford
and the middle one leads to the upper an lower car parks, once you are on the right hand
section of the entrance, take that road, passing the Texaco on your left,
you will then come to a roundabout, its at this roundabout you go left and
there is a car park to your right and to your left, take the right one, as its
open and large and you should be able to see very easily

i know some of you are travelling from midlands etc, so if you need help on finding
the trafford centre then please contact me ASAP, preferably on MSN as that way i
can show you maps online to make it easier

my MSN is

if you head for Manchester then its quite easy to find as its sign posted quite well
it also has a website where you can find information

i have contacted The Trafford Centre and i have been told the car parks will be open
and that its fine for us to use it as a meeting point in the morning

we need to be at R.E Performance Centre for 8:15am, and no later, as rolling will start
at 8:30am, i will post a list of rolling order up soon, but of course it may need
to change slightly on the day for any late comers or if anyone needs to go early,
so id appreciate everyones co-operation with that []


it isnt that far to RE really, but traffic in Bury in a morning can get quite bad
so obviously i need to take that into account so were not late

PGTi Magazine have paid to roll there 172 with us lot, so they will definitely
be attending the day

Food is all sorted, ive asked Ken to provide us with a bin/bag so please dont just chuck
your rubbish on the floor guys, as i dont want the club gettin a bad name, as im sure
you dont either

as far as i know thats everythin sorted now, if anyone has any questions or problems
then please post here or contact me

Col knows the way but you said you wanted to come and would lead the convoy

perhaps a head complete with manifolds n turbo, and also some 172 internals..

cranks, pistons etc..

  Skoda Fabia vRS

if you wanted to get up a bit later you could always meet us at the place, but you would have to find it yourself, an make sure your here by brekky time.....11am

the address is

R.E Performance Centre
Power House
Bridge St

id advise using to get your directions from

if you need any help get me on MSN as soon as you can so i can help you out

remember to check the Trafford Centre website for motorway info etc, as there is some weird junctions around it, you need the M60 but it has two ring roads, so have a look before you head up here

also remember there will be a few S.P.E.C.S guarded 50 zones on the motorway, so set off in plenty time mate
