    Ladies and Gents, Further to taking on the role of AO for Bristol and Bath I have made a little progress with a Facebook Page set up and we had a first meeting in Nov but life got in the way of a December meet up. WSCC Bristol And Bath area or @BristolBathAreaWSCC The next Westfield World (WW) article is due in by 10th Feb, so I would really like to get together before then and get some news in from you members that live and breathe Westfields in this area. If you think I’ve missed anyone off the list, then please forward this on or PM me and I’ll pass on the info. To that end please could I beg of you a paragraph (or more if you can including pictures) telling me what you have been up to over the past 3-6-12 months and what your Winter plans are leading into Spring? How are those minor jobs going or is there a major overhaul/upgrade/rebuild that would be of interest or you might need a hand with? I will then pull this into an article to re-launch Bristol & Bath across WSCC and WW. Further to this could I ask for any dates for the diary of Shows to attend as (Visitor/Exhibitor/Group), Track/Sprint/Hill Climbs we could/should be attending and any ideas for Area days out/runs/trips/overseas jaunts etc that would be good to get together for. In due course I would like to get together with our neighbouring Areas such as Somerset/Dorset, Gloucestershire and Wiltshire/Cotswolds for some joint fun and maybe to ease the burden of organising events and trips? As well as this I think their is mileage in using the KitNet meets to bolster our efforts in the early days. I have taken delivery of the WSCC Bristol and Bath Area Flag/Banner which can be loaned out to give us a presence at events/shows – just shout! Finally, I’d really like to get a meeting in the diary so here goes… Evenings: Tue 22nd Jan Thur 24th Jan Thur 31st Jan Tue 5th Feb Thur 7th Feb Weekends AM or PM: 19th/20th Jan 2nd/3rd Feb I am open to suggestions for a meeting location or we can revert to The Riverside Inn, Saltford, BS31 3EZ.

    Hi @Martin251184 and @Newton , glad to have you onboard! Good to hear that you are both active. I do hope that we can get the majority together for a meet sooner rather than later and a track blast would be great. @Newton I think my standard Westfield Silencer will be a fail so Im off to test it at Castle Coombe soon so I can get a new one if need be for Spring/Summer blatts!

    Thanks Dave, Don't think I can do the 9/10 Feb Classic show but if there are enough takers we could try to get a pitch and throw up the Flags etc? I will definitely be at the Speed Series on the 23rd! There is also the Weston Super Mare Classic Car show over the Easter Weekend? Thanks for the heads up on other members, I will include them on the distribution list. @franco2141 welcome and don't worry I only got mine in Sep 18! You are more than welcome at any meet up (in a westy or tin top) and don't forget to use the forums to ask those nagging Tech questions? Regards Chris

    Watch type thingy

    Also have the bad back issues and use an Apple Watch to track steps/exercise etc and it certainly does encourage you to get up and push on for your daily target. Apple Watch data can now also be read by the NHS and private Doctors etc to assist with diagnosis of exercise levels. However, to echo above - Yoga, Stretching and Warming up are key to recovery and maintenance of the back!

    Any V8 Bonnets or Flared side Panels in among this? Not fussed on colour? Regards Chris

    Chargers

    Yep got the CTEK ms8 and as @Dave Eastwood (Gadgetman) - Club Secretarythe comfort indicator mounted to the right of steering wheel on dash board. Plus 2m extension for charging lead so easy to plug in when hop out in the garage. Just bought electronic timer to phase the charging over 7 days. Works well all round.

    Nice one....I am just starting on the transformation of my GRP to CF, so it will never be to this extreme nature...but I do like a good weave on show!

    @neptune I wouldn't mind seeing a photo of the Indicator Pods as I have a habit of rescuing things from a slow death by dust...
