Hi Chris, I haven't as yet - I did take a quick peek at the site and registration process, but didn't see a deadline - where is it?

Hi Jan,
Bottom of the second page of the registration form says closing date for entries - 17 June 2013!
I printed the form, filled it in, scaned it and e-mailed it off last week.
Just received my pass etc. in the post this morning, just got to pray for some decent weather now! Gaydon is approx. 70 miles from here so another decent trip, mind you got good brakes now and a new MOT!

Hi Jan,
Pity you missed it, it turned out very well. There were three Mokes, mine Paul H and Dave Evans who is not a member yet but intends to be as he has two mokes.
Lots of people, lots of cars (there were five ANTS there!) and the museum was pretty good as well. There were some excellent stands selling all things mini, i even got a new ignition key cut have tried lots of places but no go as mine has an American ignition switch but the chap on site had a suitable blank.
Will put some pics on the gallery as soon as I figure out how to set up a new event page.
I too got home looking like a lobster - it was VERY warm but a very pleasant drive back.

Hi all,
Just looked on the internet and on AROnline they have a report on the show yesterday, and if you scroll down to the gallery section you will see pics of WEE MOKE and Dave Evan's Moke. They must have missed Pauls moke!

While at the show a chap came round handing out flyers for his web site http://www.austinmemories.com. The site is a good source of info on all things austin including mokes i.e.:
