There's some good post-meet analysis over on the forum board topic: <http://www.uksaabs.co.uk/viewtopic.php?t=14984> My gallery of the day is here: <http://www.saabphotos.com/gallery/Orca_WY_01042007> There were about twice as many cars as shown in the first picture, once we'd all arrived. I took that picture quite early on (although not that early) when I thought we'd all arrived ... And then a whole load more turned up. The walk around the Sculpture Park was good fun. Lunch venue was fine and the ride around in the afternoon was a hoot! Trying to convoy 15 cars through multiple cross-traffic junction and keep together was a trial. Leading it, I brought a whole village to standstill, too! We did make it to the end destination, although in two main groups. Much enjoyed - great day! We're thinking a day out to Whitby more towards the summer and probably another mini-meet for a pub lunch and walk around the Cow & Calf rocks at Ilkley one Sunday soon. I'll post here again with any details as they emerge. If you're wondering WTF is going on in this picture ... <http://www.saabphotos.com/gallery/Orca_WY_01042007/DSCF4401> ... This was a "come dressed as your forum board avatar" challenge levelled by the chap with the flat cap and pipe against the chap in the crocodile costume :) I've still no idea why a crocodile has four tits, but ... Hey :o The fellow in the background playing crown green bowls was not one of us. Paul 1989 900 Turbo S http://saab.go.dyndns.org/
