Hideous weather but a great afternoon/evening all the same!
On the way home of course it dried out nicely and and was perfect by the time I got home at 11.30pm.... Typical :!:

Thankyou to all who made it through the down poor and hideous weather.

A total count of 29 cars is very good and if the weather had been better we would have made it 40 I am sure.

As you say Martin the weather was quite nice from about 9 tonight.

I hope those who did make the annual visit to The Ace will make it again and maybe next year we will make it to 40?

Despite the rain, the M25 and the rain on the way down, it was worth the effort, there was a good mix of people and cars.

Food was good and well priced.
We left at 9.15pm and took the direct route home, Brent Cross, Henden to the A1, by the time we got home the car was dry.

I'm sure we will be down again next year.. :lol:

Hi all,

Stuck away with work, did anyone take anymore photos? Be nice to see all 29 Jensens. I will definateley be putting down next year as leave, (I thought I had this year, but somehow it managed to disappear!)

Well done to all who braved the weather

Kudos to Colin for his techno gadgetry that meant he went from telling me to get out of the way of the **** photo he was taking, to publishing it on the forum last night in approx 3 minutes!

More photos under "Featured Story" link on main JOC homepage:

sorry you missed it Soggy. But I think that in this case we have a reverse rainbow. The pot of gold is going the other way according to Colin last night!

For those that would like to see some more photos of last nights trip to Ace Kerry has been hard at it and done a page on the http://www.jensenmondayclub.co.uk/

I am not sure the pictures do the weather justice, you had to be there but fingers crossed next years event will be dry.
