As usual, arrived late and didn't really look round the cars properly as too busy catching up with people. Excellent evening at the hotel and thanks again to Ian for organising this - the price dropped £5 between check-in and check-out!

Really happy that you enjoyed your stay at the hotel, for once I made the most of the facilities!
Great atmosphere and will definately be trying for an even better deal next year!

Great day indeed, time just ran away. By the time I finally wanted to have a better look at the cars, it was already 3 o'clock, time for the end-of-day speeches.

Big thanks to those who were involved in organising it all, both before the event and on the day itself.

I can't add too much to everyone's comments, a great day, some good chats.

It's funny really, I see a Scirocco every day - cos I've got one but otherwise I think I've only ever seen one other on the road since I've had mine so it was excellent to actually see some other Sciroccos!

Great shot of the hotel car park :-D by the way

Cheers

Thanks to all who organized the day it was good to see some other Scirocco's and catch up with other members but the day went so fast I did not get time to speak to everyone or even set foot inside any of the hangers. Shame I was late getting there as had to drive up from my holiday in Devon and the traffic and rain did not help.
It was a good job that big black cloud we saw during the presentations did not come our way as I drove through it near the M54/M5 junction and I could not see the white lines on the motorway for water, I had to slow right down and a single wiper at full speed did not help!
The car drove spot on and did not miss a beat there and back to Somerset, just need to sort out some more sound proofing before next years meet.
