We must beat 80 Mokes!!!!!

Post by janz »

Club members and recipients of 'Moking' (with the exeception of those definitely too far away) should by now all have received the pamphlet with details of this great event.

Please... sacrifice your weekend for this one! The Mini Cooper Register has rrquested our presence as they felt it was important to celebrate Moke 50! well, any club that acknowledges the importance of our fabulous cars and the fact that it is Moke 50 deserves our undivided attention!

10 years ago, 80 Mokes attended this event. I believe there were even some new Duncan Hamilton Mokes for sale then. We will of course be making a full weekend of it as promised in the pamphlet.

On the Friday, there will be a meet and greet at the campsite, Camping at Hollands Woods, Brockenhurst Road, Lyndhurst, Southampton SO42 7QH, Tel:01590 622967
On Saturday, there will be a New Forest Drive with appropriate stops at watering holes and tea rooms
On Sunday, we will be with the Mini Cooper Register at Beaulieu Motor Museum.

Today - Ok... welll, 30 minutes ago then - Sunday 11 May, I have 14 Mokes confirmed. Of those 14, there are some multi Moke Mokers, so there could be a few more.... :D

TARGET is 81 Mokes.... :!: :!: :!:

Although one should not forget that 10 years ago, 80 Mokes attended this great event....

FACT:

:idea: Many if not most of those Mokes are still owned by the same persons :mrgreen:
:idea: Those people were happy to rough it, pitch tents, drive long distances in inclement British weather, dance to 'The age of Aquarius' ....... that was then 8)
:idea: Same people are now 10 years older :o
:idea: Mokes are 10 years older too :?
:idea: Some Mokes have been repaired, rebuilt, reshelled or restored :D
:idea: Some Mokes have not :cry:
:idea: Some Mokers have had hip replacements, hair implants, hear aids :lol:
:idea: Some Mokers have not :shock:
:idea: Many Mokers now prefer to 'Glamp' :lol:
:idea: Other Mokers are still able to put their jeans on in the morning whilst lying on their backs :P

Anyway.... we may all feel a bit older and more rickety, but the spirit is still there :!: :twisted: Even if you only make it on the actual day.... you will be most welcome and your attendance will be most appreciated.

Remember - Strength in Numbers :!: :D

Weske, you'd don't understand.........
We have liquid sunshine over here.
It's a pure, more refined form of natural sunshine, far easier on your skin than normal sunshine, far less UV.
You won't dissolve in it, keep calm and carry on Moking!

See you all Saturday

Sorry for the late reaction to some of the posts...

At present, we have 20 mokes confirmed - of those, some 17 will be on the drive on Saturday. I am hoping for more.

It looks like Wesley isn't far wrong with the weather.... but then, anything can happen.... and probably will (sic. Murray Walker). The BBC Weather site shows a bright sun wrapped around 2 rain drops... let's hope the sun prevails :wink:
