On Saturday 23rd May 2015 we will be constructing the figure "1935" using 80 cars from throughout Aston Martin history to formulate a magnificent spectacle on the Sandhurst Parade Ground to commemorate this auspicious occasion.  The day will include a barbeque lunch over-looking the lake, with opportunities to explore the venue's beautiful grounds and guided tours around this most inimitable and prestigious venue.

On Bank Holiday Monday, 25th May, we are holding a champagne reception and luncheon at The Grafton Hotel, Tottenham Court Road.  This hotel is where Morris "Mort" Goodall instigated the inaugural meeting and formulated the principles of The Aston Martin Owners Club, exactly 80 years ago.

Closing date for Sandhurst is this Friday, 15th May at 17:00 - you need to let Anne Wright at HQ know.  She will send out the form we have to fill in for security and this needs to be back by 13:00 on Monday 18th.

We have the 80 cars for the 1935 display but have been given additional space to have other Astons surrounding it. It's current around the 100 mark for the additional cars but we can take a few more.

There are still a few spaces for the Grafton lunch - closing date is Friday 22nd May 17:00 hrs to HQ.

Anyone know what time the display kicks off. I imagine the guardhouse is going to love it if 180 cars all arrive at once. ;D

I sent a message to Dawn and she has said we need to arrive between 8.00 and 9.00 and we will be put in a holding car park, I guess security will be pretty tight so we need to be patient 😊

Got up at 5am.  Got to Sandhurst at 7:40am.  Moved into position at 10:20am! Nice place but Bloody long day!  I guess the secret is to turn up two hours later than specified.

Food though immeasurably better than Woburn.

Fantastic day at Sandhurst yesterday and our thanks to Dawn, Tim, Marc and all their teams for all their hard work in making things go so well on the day.  Thanks also to the people of RMAS who also made us so welcome.

It took Tim and Marc 10 hours on Friday to get the spacing right for the picture but I am sure that that dedication will have been worth it when we see the aerial shot of the cars in the 1935 formation.  Can't wait!

Clearly lots of lessons had been learnt from Woburn and well done to the organisers for taking on the criticism and making sure it did not happen again.  Costa Coffee had been warned and were ready!

As for the hanging around whilst the cars were parked I cannot see how that can be avoided.  The whole idea of the day was to get the "picture" with the cars parked perfectly.  Still, lots of people to catch up with and cars to see so the time flew by and lots of sunshine to enjoy whilst we waited. 

Thanks again to all involved - another truly memorable Aston day for the memory banks.

You can say that again - a fully organised catering operation out the back, people organised into sittings so everyone got a huge, freshly barbequed plateful.

Top marks for the day - and a chance to see somewhere not normally open to the public.

+1 what a fantastic day with superb organisation. Our tour guide was both humerous and immensely proud of Sandhursts history, many thanks to those guys as well, makes you proud to be British

It was an amazing day wasn't it.

Geewizzpip, very glad you didn't turn up that much later, makes it much more difficult to do an event like this when people do, to the extent that we would probably stop doing them.

Thank you to everyone who had their Id ready to get through the gate, only one person didn't bring any. The Gurkha's were concerned that we didn't have cars queuing back to the road and we avoided that.

It was good to catch up with many of you.

Great day out. A pleasant change not to be 'organising' and be able to enjoy the event. Well done to all.

A BIG thank you to Dawn, Tim, Marc and all the team who organised such a wonderful day.
Yes we did have a bit of waiting around and unfortunately we were the last on the cherry picker at 4.50pm for the big photo, by which time the majority of cars had 'escaped'!
Nevertheless very much a day to remember, catching up with friends, making new ones from across the UK, lovely lunch and the privilege of our car in front of the New College, Sandhurst, as part of the 80th celebrations. This is what membership of AMOC is all about in my book.

Thanks Ian.........Not all lost as 'Big Al' (the AA man) took us to meet some other AMOC members and their cars at the Ace Cafe, where we spent a pleasant 45 minutes (his lunch break)

Then off to Chris Done (astondb7.com) for repair

Phil - someone did let us know you were stranded, when they arrived at Sandhurst.  Sorry you didn't make it, but glad to hear you got to the Ace.
