As most of you will know this weekend is the annual Triumph Spares Day at Stoneleigh. This year I'm wearing my Club Triumph hat and I'm helping on their stand. I went down today to help out with setting up the stand. It went quite well and afterwards I gave fellow member Paul Darbyshire (who helped me with Snowdrop's steering column bush) a lift to the place he was staying at as his car was on the stand. I had a couple of drinks there and I found out that the accommodation I'd arranged had fallen through. I checked the place to see if they'd any rooms free but it was full. Paul fired up his laptop and found a Holiday Inn about a mile away so I phoned up to make a reservation, went over and checked in. At £50 a night it is a little more than the Travelodge I'd stayed in last July but this place offers a lot more for the money including wireless Internet connection. I am updating this Blog from the hotel room. I've taken a few pics and I'll post a few of them soon.
