Neil, I noticed the appalling weather forecast for the GNW weekend.

I just hope that 'they' have got it wrong and you get some acceptable weather.

Good luck and best wishes to everyone participating.

Seems like when ever I go to a Lancia event it snows this year. Taking Rosie (Gamma) even though there is a curious knock coming from her engine.

As Frank says things change by the hour and current BBC for Durham area is just cold not much snow if any.....

Have to say the last time it was organised by Bruce weather was also pretty challenging up on the Moors for our drive out but everyone still had an enjoyable time-will take a spade this year just in case!

Just fitted winter tyres in case the snow forecast over pennines tomorrow and saturday goes further east. I have given up at the moment of deviating to Sheffield to see our daughter..... Huh?

Would appreciate a full update late this aft. There is a good inch of snow in Yorkshire at the moment and it's forecast to keep going until Sunday. Current forecast for Durham is snow tomorrow afternoon. At the moment I'm 30/30/30 between cancel altogether, go in the new VW(urgh!) or just go for it. I can just see the face of the cop/AA man if I get stuck on the A1 in the Lancia!

I am in Southampton at the moment, and have to come back down to Gatwick on Sunday, for a flight to Mallorca.  The weather conditions are not good through the midlands, so very reluctantly, I have had to cancel. A great shame, as the Great Northerns, are always the highlight of my Lancia year.

Decision here is to use the Vdub ( Angry), disappointing, but better than not going at all. Not that the Beta has ever broken down, or got stuck in the snow, but it seems the responsible thing to do.

Decided last night to cancel due to forecast, but reassessed today and have decided to go. Were currently on A1 @Grantham with no snow yet.  Roll Eyes Will update later. Main problem seems to be getting back to Colchester on Sunday.

A great shame that the weather yet again keeps members from doing what they enjoy most....most importantly keep safe!

Same here, but plenty to keep me awake on the way. MPG down to 23! It's usually about 27.
Augusta could do with a wash, but it will have to wait till I get home. Regards, John
