Re: Swing Dance Tutorial Weekend

This is a great opportunity but we need more interest to make it viable.

We're opening it up to the Retro Caravan Club to try and boost the numbers. We need to make a decision at the end of this week to go for it or try again early next year.

Hi Matthew, Blue Nord private camping for me.

Security definitely worth having and catered meals means less to carry - bar sounds good as well !

Hopefully my son Dominic will join me.
Cheers

Tyre Pressure and Hub Caps

A few questions...
My Portafold has 145/80/R10 tyres. What is the recommended pressure ? I've seen anything from 25 to 40 on the forum.

I was thinking about getting a hub cap for the spare wheel, should I be looking for one from a classic mini ?

Cheers

I have confirmed with Lady McAlpine that the Fawley Hill event will take place next year in May.

Well worth attending. Loads of space, loads to see and do ... and they have an amazing 'train set' in their back garden ;-))
