What a great day!!!Thanks to everyone who had a hand in organising the event. It went without a hitch (well the weather was a bit moist to start but you can't control that!)The day started when I met up with the crew who stayed in the Premier Inn. A quick 'Hello' followed by a short convoy and then into the park.I was V wet to start but luckily we had the trusty gazebo up in time for the worst of it. It gave me a change to wash some of the grime off my car that had accumulated on my trip there.Thanks to Deks who supplied the tea, coffee, sugar and some lovely gipsy tarts (they have a bit of a following after today!)This was my second JOG meet (my first in the UK!) and it was a pleasure to meet up with some familiar and some new faces. I knew you from here but now I know what a handsome collection of JUKE owners you all are - lucky too as the number plate bingo was easily won by 'The JUKEys'Congratulations to all those that won prizes in the raffle and tombola. HUGE thanks to Kats and John for swapping with me - I am now the proud owner of a model GT-R. You did so badly out of the swap I still feel guilty....Thankfully the weather improved midday and we were in T shirts for the afternoon. It also meant that I got out of the car park without the use of the tow rope I packed!I had a very good trip home (EXACTLY 2 hours door to door). I even caught up with a black 370Z and we had a little convoy for a couple of junctions of the M20 before they pulled off.It was only marred by a thieving toll booth at the Dartford crossing. How does a £1 coin, 2x20p and 2x5p coins add up to 1.44?! Especially since the smallest coin they accept is a 5p!!! I was sat there with it asking me for 6p and all I had was a £2 coin, so they won that. But I will draft an email tonight!If you've not been to a meet yet, make sure you book yourself up for one soon. I had a great day with lots of laughs and banter. Great company, nice people, nice cars, and I learn something new every time.Right, I'm about to open a bottle of fizzy plonk with Sarah (who passes on her apologies for not being able to make it today).Cheers all
It was a pleasure. I would have rather been serving alcoholic beverages and bar snacks - perhaps another time!!I've unloaded the car and put things mostly away. The house will be in termoil for a week anyway as I'm off work to replace the kitchen so it doesn't make any difference I think you need to both use your imaginations and take some weird and interesting pics of it in different locations [

A big thankyou to Kats and iceman for collecting the mascot and looking after it as I had no room in my car to bring it back.A very big thankyou to Paul (aka 37oz) for supplying and controlling the refreshment bar. Athankyou to qashqai Craig for organising the event. A thank you to Nissan for supporting the event. It's a shame the weather wasn't as good in the morning as in the afternoon but we still had a great day Very pleased with the forum turnout and it was great to meet some new friends and renew some old friendships. We raised a good amount for the forum funds. The tombola prizes went down well and I think most members managed to win something.
