It doesn't look like having an MRC Christmas do is a goer for this year. So you are all invited to join the regular RX-8 Owners Club monthly meet on Friday 20th December 2019.  :06:

This is held at the Hungry Horse Pub, Shirwell Crescent, Furzton Lake, Milton Keynes MK4 1GA which has a Premier Inn next door. You can currently book a room for two people from £35.

As it's Christmas there is a 'Festive Fayre' menu; two courses for £11.99 or three courses for £14.99:

Thanks Ann, but go away on holiday on the 20th, so we are unable to attend.

Have a great time all.

Hi Jeff, I think the last time I saw you was at the Christmas party - a few years ago now!

It would be great to see you.

Linda and I will be there regardless, even if no one else can make it, so have booked the hotel in anticipation.

Just noticed a couple more joining so won't be 'Billy no mates'. :))

Finance dictated it had to go 13 months ago,  after 14 years in an RX8 regretted ever since.

Yes it would be good to see you and a few others from a few years ago. The FD will be in good health by then - be keen to see your R3 if you are driving it over.  ;)

I’m afraid not, it’s SORN for Winter now.
Plus the pub is only a couple of miles from where we live so not a great run for a Rex, and I’ll be having a Prosecco (or two! )

Likewise Ann. Not seen some of the other attendees for a while either, except of course the Essex contingent.

Hi Jeff,

Table is booked for 7:30pm, we’ll probably get there a bit before.

See you there.

Ann.
