I was thinking of a nice pub/hotel/restaurant with car parking, near say Maidenhead on a fine September evening.
Last rays of the warm evening summer sun,dappling over the river,birdsong in the lush autumnal foliage and the soft tones of 'That's why the Lady is a tramp' by Mr. Sinatra.
The evening sun glinting off the bonnets of the Astons as we sat in the garden, enjoying a drink before dinner.
How about that!
Sounds perfect Steven, however please tell me which pub/hotel you are thinking of because I've lived here for 25 years and haven't yet fouind that many/any pubs with a riverside setting where you can safely park your car and sit and enjoy a beer by the side of the river.  :-\
Still burning hydrocarbons just for fun!

Sounds ominous. (Even with the spelling mistake, unless of course you meant DOSE.)
Please enlighten me.

I think someone else has already suggested a cheaper alternative to the club's event.

Re the 'questioning' of the Ball and its cost,  I guess this down to the lack of published details.
As we all know from the 2010 Programme sent out by HQ, it is being held at the Banqueting House in Whitehall - a stunning venue, no river alongside admittedly but not far from the Thames.
The news is now out that the tickets will be £185 a head but that includes a champagne reception with canapes, really good food (even the veggie option!), GOOD wines with the meal and port after the dessert.
The entertainment should be great as it's the band of the Scots Guards - so they should be able to knock out a tune or two!
Music during dinner, a cabaret and then a dance band for those who want to shake a leg or whatever!

It's an 'all inclusive, no additional cost at the venue' evening so in real terms is value for money.

It's a special year in the Clubs history and this will be a special event.............tickets are selling fast.
Go on lets all book tickets and have a good night, buy your wife the new ball gown, it'll make it easier when you tell her you've bought a new Rapide for the school run! ;D

Sorry for the advert!

Ah yes and I can walk home from there  Parking's a nightmare but I'd leave my Aston in the garage. Indeed since it's been renovated I'd thoroughly recommend it on a warm summer's evening.

I've asked Audrey if we can have a V8 restorers' table so we don't bore the rest of the crowd - hmmm perhaps our wives would like a separate table..... >

Now Nigel. You'll only get into the "which fuel delivery system is better" argument and end up with a rev-off outside in the car park which will only stop when the neighbours complain... (by the way, the previous rev-off was won by the Bosch system when the aluminium paint on the exhaust started to melt on the Carb V

Maybe we can add an open debate feature on the benefits or Carbs -v- Fuel injection to the evenings entertainment as well?

With 300 members there it would be a good discussion.
Maybe try to get Kingsley Riding-Felce to adjudicate?
