    Here's a twist for you all ... @*minty*

    Further to another Camel trophy thread, and thanks to @blackstrat for the name, I'm gonna come up with something along the lines of a Landyzone Caramel Trophy ... ;)

    Dunno any details yet, it might be vehicular based, it might not be .. but it'll involve cake, probably, (that's to get it past the mods, BB especially) and no small amount of mess!

    I'll think of something anyway, maybe it's a knockout type games if enough are interested, in and out of vehicles and maybe slow driving dunno yet .. ;)

    That sounds like a good idea.
    Just a thought, years ago I used to go with friends to vintage car driving tests. They laid out a little course in a field, preferably with some slopes and hillocks. Simple stuff, like slalom uphill through the cones, followed by reverse back down through them. A little" garage", laid out in cones on the ground for people to reverse into, marshal deducts points if you hit the cones. Slow challenges, who can cover the course in the longest time without stopping. Stuff like that, imagination can create more.
    Much more difficult than it sounds, especially on steep or greasy ground. But safe, nothing much more than walking pace.

    Should be a good contest between that and me Clio, then! :D I might mod it for the tests by removing the front spoiler and letting the tyres down a bit!

    My landys work, but 900 miles in two and a bit days might be testing the limit of my devotion, and certainly the doris!

    Do you have to be from the West Country or live in the West Country to be part of the crew?!

    It probably helps to live in the West Country to be part of the West Country posse especially if arriving in convoy :)

    Plans have changed slightly for me and I'll be driving to Stourbridge from Kent on the Thursday eve and setting off from there on the Friday. So I may not be able to join any convoy!!

    We are relatively local, two of us are in Rushden and the third is in Bedford.

    Probably rumble over on the Friday evening.
