Is the Group C race definitely of one hour duration this time? Hope so, half an hour was deemed long enough in 2004 (and I felt a bit short changed).
Jasus ..... I forgot all about that wooden hut Bentley . Was that the one with the 3 breasted lady with the lower half as a mermaid in Lizard skin ? I didnt enter , the thought frightened the crap outta me !!! LMOA

What time will the Gruop C race start at ? Will it be for 1 hour ?

I'll do my best to finally make it this year...
Last year,we had a few of our party coming down at somewhere around 3:30 in the night before the meet. Obviuosly we had to celebrate their arrival with a few glasses too many..
This ment I finally hit the sack when dusk was allready showing strongly and I was on my grandstandseat just an hour before the start...

This will definitly not happen to me this year as I wouldn't want to miss the Group C race for the world(any entrylist available btw?) so I'll be wide awake and a lot fresher then last year to meet up with you lads.

Looking forward to it !

Ok, this is unofficial, but from what I can gather, the Group C race will start at 10:15 on the Saturday morning and run for a duration of 40 minutes. Which means the 11:30 start time which has been suggested for the meeting would be ideal.

Sorry guys - not me. I'll be lucky enough to drag myself out of bed before the C-class start. Probably need some waking up after that.

We'll be at Maison Blanche again, pop by for a beer from our bar when you're in the neighborhood

Correct, although I'm not sure if Collins will be attending in order to pin the pin to the tree this year(?).

Incidentally, if anyone is unsure on the day of exactly where to meet, I'm happy to give my mobile number to any Tenths regular who either hasn't been to the meeting before, or who has tried and failed to find the group in the past (PM me). We can then guide you in. I'm sure we have quite a number each year who almost make it (including myself in 2005).

The offer is made in light of my own failed attempt to attend my first Tenths meeting in 2005...........

Having made our way to what I believed to be the appointed place at the appropriate time, a colleague (who I'd dragged along for moral support, just in case) and I inadvertently gatecrashed someone else's meeting. It didn't help that we were welcomed with open arms and a glass of champagne. I assumed, from the welcome that we were given, that we were indeed in the right place. Only when we realised that there wasn't a single English speaker amongst the group did the alarm bells begin to ring. There then followed a rather awkward conversation with two guys from the group who confronted us with accusations of champagne theft, dirty tricks and being American. Fortunately, several other members of the group leapt to our defense and we were able to make our escape unscathed (if psychologically scarred).

I can tell you, it was a great relief in 2006 when KPY spotted me loitering, guessed I was looking for the Tenths meeting and introduced himself to me!

I keep meaning to attend these meets, but I always seem to over do things on the Friday night, so being sociable on a Saturday morning is too much effort. Especially once I'm safely in my luxury grandstand seating.

I'll try to make more effort to be clean and sober this year.
