Hi Evryone,

I have just been through the list of attendees for the Archery Event and pasted below is a screen grab of the list of attendees, complete with PayPal Payments (as of this morning) and Meal Attendance confirmation.

If anyone notices any glaring errors or ommision, please let me know soonest.



Has anyone been to Port Solent recently?
Last time I went, (not in the MX5) probably around a year ago there were rather large speed humps on the entrance roads which may be a problem for those of us running a tad low.
Any recent info appreciated, although I will try and get over there before the event to make sure I can get in!

We were there not too many weeks ago and yes, there are speed bumps but if taken very slowly they should not be an issue…unless you 5 is one of the super low ones :thinking:

Thanks Mal.
I should be able to get over to try them beforehand. I know my car is really too low to be practical (I think it’s about 90mm) but haven’t had time to adjust it, or when I have it’s been raining😂. It was OK (just) at Darren’s (tracking) and I’ve lifted it by 5mm or so since then.
