If a convoy is not so organised maybe post here where you are on the way up, I'm going to stop for fuel at Tescos in Perth around 10am then jet up the main road to Aberdeen.

Another great meet, 27 attendees, good food and great company. Thanks to all who attended and to the organisers

We had a 96, 99, several superb c900s, a few 9000s and the moderns. A great selection.

A grand day out. Thanks to Lucas (Lugy) for instigating this and to Derek (deggsie) for organising the event.

Alison and I enjoyed the food and the good company.

A few photos of folk and cars.

Thanks to Deggsie and Jim for the part they played in making it happen, good to meet up with everyone again and great food too.
Loving Deggsie's new car, what a great find!

Yeah, great lunch, great to meet up with everybody.
Thanks to Lugy and Deggsie for setting this up.

Next year let's do a spring or Autumn lunch, so that it would (hopefully) be a bit warmer.
We'll have to come up with a new name though...Christmas Lunch in May or September, doesn't quite sound right....
Not as a substitute for Christmas lunch, but in addition to.

Good to see Deggsie joining the "Left Hooker" club with his new motor!

Repeat all the plaudits above for the organisers, and good to meet all the new and old faces.
Good food and comfortable venue.
Agree about a spring meeting my 900 will be out of hibernation by then.

This was a great day. Hassle free journey there, nice seeing some old faces and new too.
The food was great!
The journey home was even better than the journey there as we'd managed to get the heater going

Wonderful day with friends old and new and SAAB's old and new.

I had no input on this one Lugy.

Thanks to yourself for kicking the ball off and to Deggsie for scoring the goals.

Cheers
Jim

Looks like a great day was had by all, I'm very sorry to have missed it.

At least Santa arrived in style at a local village for his Christmas grotto.

Thanks one and all for helping to make it a great day !
One of the waitresses at the Fourmile was very concerned that so many cars had broken down, when she saw all the bonnets up !

Echo everyone else. Thanks for organising the Xmas meet. Good to catch up with the old faces and put a face to some forum names. Good food and chat and a chance for a nice run out although my 9000 doesn't get out in the winter these days.

Sorry I missed this, only just spotted the thread now! I wouldn’t have made it anyway as I was in Falkirk for work that night.

27 is a good turnout though!
