    For those of you curious as to whether you have won any of the five prizes available in our events' Christmas competition please take a look at the competition page at our event website at www.solidlinux.co.uk - all the information is there

    Incidentally our Friday Ad advert that we keep in place all year round is proving productive, as we have just had an enquiry about three classic Jaguars that may be signing up for our 2019 event - they (as in the owners ) are not on email or the internet, so I have posted details across to them.. Last year we had a number of last minute arrivals due to our FridayAd advert too

    A little more news for you guys - the incredible Scratchshield Wash Systems that were won in the event Christmas competition are already on their way to the winners, and I am just waiting on confirmation that the absolutely must-have Robornes Leather Cleaning Kits, and the incredible personalised engraving have also gone out. Congratulations to all five winners and please have a fantastic Jaguar Christmas

    Meanwhile a professional photographer with experience of automotive photography has come forward regarding our event, and we are in the final negotiations regarding things - fantastic news for us. I will update everyone as soon as I have the final details

    I am very happy to announce that Rocket Photographic (rocketphoto.co.uk) are coming onboard as official event photographers for our 2019 event. They have been involved with automotive photography for both owners and prominent magazines and will be a good match for us. Please join me in welcoming them to our event

    It has been quite a week for our event - our Christmas competition has closed giving five winners a great Jaguar Christmas, we have welcomed two new sponsors onboard, now have the largest incredible prize to-date for our prize draw on the day, and have booked an incredible professional photographer


    I am just waiting on final confirmation that the last prizes are on their way to the winners before I can sign off on this years competition.


    I will then start work on the design and printing of the dashboard sheets, and designing the new feature - the quiz sheets for the day - noting winners of the quiz will be in a photoshoot and advertised on the event website as our most knowledgable attendees of 2019.


    I am hoping to get that done over the Christmas period, and will then be making contact with our current sponsors to bring them up to date with our progress so far around the start of January, prior to making contact with some of our previous sponsors to see if they will consider re-signing with us..


    that is enough to keep me going over the Christmas period I think


    This week has been really busy regarding our event, and I hope everyone has enjoyed being involved with things as we develop our event
