Just got in from this cruise, was a great event.

Got picked up by sted and tony, and off we went to the first meeting point. Waited a little while for everyone to arrive and then set off for St Davids.

Once we got to St Davids, there was alot of nice cars already there and was a nice 10 minutes to stretch our legs before getting on the road again for the cruise.

On the final stretch, me and tony saw our lives flash before our eyes when some chav popped out of nowhere and made sted slide on to the hard shoulder but after a short while, we arrived to a nice big car park surrounded by nice modded cars.

Also nice to see Pete Price there in his smart car with his blue neons haha

At the event, we did the usual, walk, talk and see the mods which were all great. There must have been at least 300 cars there. And I couldnt possibly pick one above the rest, they were all great.

Hope to go to some more like this soon.

tony super star for bravin the cold with the photo's, you have taken some great shots.

the event was a strange one really, cold but not much of an atmospher but still a event which we all went to thats the main thing.

some nice cars and and plenty of space, thanks for the police not being there aswell didnt see 1 police car.

Broomster great convoy up i helped by blocking the other lane hehehe, glad i was in that lane actual with sted in the cue some where, the first i saw of him was was he slid past me side ways in the hard shoulder lmao.

#84792 - 13th Mar 2005 4:35pm Re: Review: 12th March 2005- Cruise.

I totally agree Sally smile

Wasnt as good of turn out as the last one I attended. I didnt really get out of the car. Was too cold and Im not very well anyway. A big thankyou to Jim for taking me. I really appreciate it. Huge thankyou to Broomy for leading the convoy (We all manged to stay behind him) thumbsup

Convoy was not the best I have been on either, as Sally said the roadworks didnt help at all. Cars were all over the place. A few accidents were escaped as the convoy kept slowing down and speeding up dramatically and if it wasnt for the hard shoulder being there to swerve into, cars would have been up the backsides of the ones in front.

Two of our members had a little bump. No damage particually done. Lucky not to hurt with the clowns who were also in the convoy. First we saw of Steds car was when he went flying down the hard shoulder hehe

The 2nd location meeting place was way to small for the size of the convoy on the way to the actual location in Llandudno. Cars were getting stuck in and people were getting lost. I just told Jim to follow the cars infront as the convoy went back on itself.

Had a little drive around chester and I think some peeps attended the rock. I went home because I wasnt well.
All in all though, it was an ok night. Hope the next one can be better organised smile

Love Laura x

First off, I'd like to thank Broomy for excellent convoy leading! happy

Secondly, Tony, your a star for the photos happy

The CW convoy to St Davids went along with no problems what so ever, one or two obviously got bored and had a quick srint up the line of cars then settled back into the convoy

Arrived at St Davids round-a-bout to meet up with two more convoys. Bit of a rush as I think we were just joining the back end of the Lymm convoy, obviously what happened was the Lymm leader rang someone at St Davids and said, "we're passing you now" and we had to catch up and follow the tail end. This caused organised chaos! Everyone sprinting onto the motorway, trying to keep with the other convoy. As I was about five cars from the back of the St Davids convoy I had a hell of a lot of catching up to do lol

After a few scares with some drivers obviously not used to driving in large convoys braking late and trying to be the first there, we arrived at another meet up point.
At first I thought it was the final cruise location, then I realised with cars lining the slip road, it was gonna be another convoy smack

Once again, someone got the signal and it was another free-for-all, I missed a turn off, but managed to find two cars from another cruise site who had also missed the turning, after following them while they rang round people trying to find where it was, I arrived at the location. Plenty of space and well lit, but unfortunatly a distinct lack of noticable cars.

Mostly cars in the process of being modded and cars that had just been started on were there. Although fair to say, there where a few nice motors there.

Left just before ten for a quick drive through Chester with the CW & Chester posse

Personally I say this was a poor event with a serious lack of convoy planning. Altho on the other hand can look at this as part of a learning curve and hopefully plan better for future events. The potentials definatly there!

Big thanks to Broomy for leading the convoy and to Tony Mk2 for the photos! Bit of a hairy drive down to the location but arrived safely if a bit late due to a detour with Sanchez i never knew Deganwy was so close! Anyway arrived to the location tonnes of cars spread over the park! Had a good laugh and got off to Chester which was fun!
