Dear All
   Just to inform you that I have provisionally arranged this years AC Engine Meeting for October 20th 2013 to be at the Gaydon Museum again, would you be good enough to let me know if you are able to attend & what topics you would like to raise.
   We would start at 10 AM as before.
   I hope this date fits you all.
   
   Regards

Robin,
   
   I would love to attend but regrettably not able to do so.
   
   If I am permitted as a non attendee, the topics that would be of great interest to me are the effects on our engines of unleaded ethanol fuels, contemporary anti freeze and engine oils lacking in the Z (?) additive and what to do about it.

Robin,
   
   I would like to attend this year, as I was unable to make it last time. Will let you know any topics in plenty of time.
   
   Regards

It would be great to get more AC owners to attend the meeting, we had a good showing last year as well as many Frazer Nash owners, it will be good to get topics for discussion & have useful exchanges of knowledge, I can bring some engine parts but it would be nice for attendees also to bring what they want to discuss where possible.

As the owner of an AC powered car (AEX 734 / CLB 2428), I would find it very interesting to attend this meeting but, being in the U.S., it is not really practical to do so.  Would the Club consider setting up a live webcast of the meeting and/or video taping the meeting and posting it on this site so that AC owners worldwide can "attend" the meeting as well?
   
   Thank you,
   
   Greg

   Have sent an Email to Andy Shepherd for his consideration for a live meeting but whilst these things are possible arranging it & possibly cost can be an issue, not being a computer/coms expert we would need to find an economical way for multiple connections to the meeting in the different time zones! I found this difficult when I managed an international company let alone a Club, but technology has move on a pace in the last few years.
