Stuart, that looks an interesting 4 hours, it is a shame it is so far from the South East, are they running any more demos elsewhere in the UK?

Sorry, but I don't know if there are any demonstrations further south.  This has been organised by Cumbrian Porsche club members.  I will try to find out some contact details for Swissvax as it may be possible to organise something further south it there is enough interest.

I went to the Swissvax demonstration today.  I have to say that it was well worth it and I learned a lot.  Obviously it was based around all of the Swissvax products and was very much a marketing day for the company, but I found that it was still very informative.

I spoke to the chap from Swissvax about the possibility of running a demonstration for the LMC at another location in the UK.  I took his contact details, so if anybody would like to set up a demonstration for their area, please contact me and I can pass on the details.  To make it viable, I would suggest that about 30 people would need to attend.  They also run demonstations and classes at their headquarters in Knaresborough, North Yorkshire.  Again, please contact me if you would like the contact details.

It has already crossed my mind as something for the AGM weekend.  If I remember, I will bring it up at the next committee meeting.
