I worked on the reinforced concrete design for one of the big multistory car-parks in Watford when I was a Structural Designer/Draughtsman - the one with the spiral ramp.

Mrs DanSE4 thinks she knows that one. Was it the "Kings & Queens" car park (or something like that)?

So was that yesterday (Saturday 19th) a few of you guys were supposed to be getting together?  Did you manage it, or did you cancel?  Another tip for future reference, don't post phone numbers on the open forum, but exchange mobile numbers via PMs when you arrange to meet.  That way, if anyone is running late, or you miss one another, or plans change you can let each other know.

It was today, all 3 of us turned up :)

Nice to meet up with fellow calibra lovers

was today, we knew there wasnt much interest, so only 3 of us & only 2 callys. nice looking cars.
always good to meet other members though.
hopoe fully we'll be able to arrange a south east meet for later in the year.
I want to die peacefully in my sleep like my grandad,
not screaming in terror like his passengers!

Excellent.  At least you guys have met one another and that should make it easier to get a few more people joining you next time and hopefully touringcar's Cally will be on the road by then - unless you meet at his place to help get it back on the road.

TBH was a bit dissappointing that only 3 of us turned out, but great to talk to each other about our Cali's.

Hopefully next time will be much better attended under a new thread!    8) 8) 8)
