    CPC has been sold and has moved away. Be nice to see it back in an authentic livery and condition.

    I'm very tempted to go this gala. Apedale isn't too far away, so might spend some time at both.

    Hopefully the NBL will be out to play in some form as I am overdue a trip to Chasewater and need to encourage myself to make some progress on my own (27656).

    The owner will be driving unless Hurricane Irene gets him.
    The earthquake did not get him but Irene just might,
