on what must have been the coldest !Removed! day this year, me and smw arrived at hatfield house at 10am. after a quick chat we realised 15 mins had passed and there was nothing in sight............... and then slowly but surely more and more arrived.

by 11 there were a good 20 supras, rx7s a couple of hondas. groups of people filtered in throughout the morning. the highlight was the 600bhp supra with fully chromed engine bay, and a couple of other mental motors. then, finally, the toyota bunch arrived. first jerry, at midday, and then jaxx a few hours later.

after a quick lunch break i returned to see a load more people. this is when the trouble began.

(rant mode on) as many had gone for lunch the people who turned up late decided that there was no point in staying. they bombed off down through the grounds and as a result we got a grilling for it. there were also a buch of idiots in a civic with a fake pistol, and security got worried of safety. this could have fudged things up completely all due to a couple of mindless people (rant mode off)

but otherwise all went well. there were no real reasons that would stop it from happening again and hoefully , when the weather gets warmer we can do another one with a much bigger turnout.

the day finished with jerry and jaxx parking up in fornt of the house and photographing their yari against the backdrop. bunch of posers.

lastly, thanks to all who came. you helped to make it a great day and hopefully it will happen again soon.

jerry and SMW have both taken pics, so expect them to be up in the near future,

cheers

Ho Hum.

I've had an e mail from Hatfield House - v. unhappy about things.

Here is my response to them -

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Michael

I can not say how disappointed I am that this incident by the very few spoiled

the event for the majority.

I was at the meeting in the morning and all were well behaved, driving safely in

the grounds etc.

Unfortunately the event had been advertised on the internet and by it's very

nature this means that individuals who do not adhere to or even belong to

official car clubs can 'tag along' and cause trouble, as I would suggest, is the

case on this occasion.

When we organise future events we will learn from this experience and will pay

close attention to security - however I would suggest that we would not able to

deploy efficient security without considerable cost and so this may mean that we

have to only meet at venues where in house security can be provided.

I would like to assure you that the majority of people at the meeting were

exceptionally well behaved and I'm sure they would all join me in condoning the

actions of these mindless few.

We have no way of identifying who the people in the Honda Civic may have been

and as no action was taken at the time whilst they were on site it would seem

that the opportunity to involve the police has now passed.

We do not maintain any records of people attending such events and , again, this

may prove beneficial in the future if we adopt some form of monitoring.

From a personal point of view may I thank you for your hospitality on the day

and naturally I understand your position in relation to future car meetings and

with this in mind we will seek alternative venues.

thats pretty much what i've been saying to him in my emails and he seemed ok about it. he would probably be ok with anohter one at a later date, we just need to be a lot more attentive as to who is coming and have a specific 'guest list'

Well I'm sorry I couldn't be there in the end due to new work job training............

Glad things went OK(ish) and that you had a good day.....

Nice to see that Jaxx made it all the way down. That's dedication. Well done that man....... :thumbsup::thumbsup:

As for the Civic incident - without wanting to preach - at the first sign or hint of a firearm, fake or not.....someone should have dialled 999. The Civic people may have a rep for doing this and it is a crime. In hindsight it was unfortunate and next time things may turn out different.

.................................................................

:thumbsup: Just wanna say well done to SMW & CORROLASR for their hard work and dedication to organising this. Well done Gentlemen :thumbsup:
