Do we need a 1966 Horizontal?

Post by DRT » 20:05 Wed 03 Oct 2018

This thread might be the inspiration we needed to pull a few 1966 VPs out to see how they are doing.

If there is enthusiasm for this I can donate Graham and our new friend MrFrodo has a Dow that would be his ticket.

Any more?

Where and when? TBD

If there is space, I would love to come - I can offer Warres 66.

A very good idea. I'd like to come, but only have Warre and I see Jasper already offering that, so I would have to adopt please.

We now have a full table of 14. If there are more volunteers we can start a reserve list.

Would a Fonseca 1966 be welcome?

† Yes yes, of course, even if there were already several F66s, another would be welcome.
