Going to the IMM - READ THIS!

Post by mk1 »

My on the spot reporter has asked me to warn anyone going to this years IMM to take wellies & rain attire. They are currently just setting up, but the site is already a quagmire!

As an example, the floor of the Minisport tent is currently floating!

The organisers are trying to dig sumps & canals to divert the rain water, but are meeting with limited success.


YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

So what will it be like if Friday's forecast Biblical deluge comes too? :cry: Could be even worse than Scottish IMM!
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who have not got it.

I had to park my car on the tent in Scotland so it didn’t get blown / swept away...
I've got a 69 Mini with a 1046, Cooper Head and a four on the floor.
