Hi Les,

I would just like to add my congratulations to the growing list, what with the success of the Manchester show, the outstanding results of the Rochdale Olympics, the book is just going to be fantastic. WELL DONE.

Also thanks to Keith Hamer, Jason Hoffman, Roger Coupe, Howard Evans, Calvin Rae, David Mayers, Andrew Roan and Les for presenting 8 immaculate Rochdale Cars; you did yourselves and the club proud.

And one person we are all forgetting is Pat Brown, she must have endured quite a lot over the last 6 months. But she has given Les and the club her full support,
so a big thank you Pat from all the members of the ROC.

I have searched the web for photos of the cars from Saturday and moved them to a site I admin http://www.flickr.com/groups/rochdale_cars/pool/
may be more to follow, keep looking.
Those of you who have taken photos on the day please send me copies, to rochdale-olympic@talktalk.net and I will put them in the ROC database.

The best film I found on Youtube is
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9KWMWOERz-o
read what it says under the film and then go full screen from the 2 minute mark.

I was very upset I could not get the parts to repair “Duffy” in time to get to the event, I am now even more upset I missed such an historic occasion.

Well done to everybody involved in making it such a success.

Kind regards

Tony and “Duffy”
