@Hoggs just wondering I know I have not scored for a whilst but I notice I have dropped off the score board?
Hoping it's mistake...
Hello! I've been held hostage in Six30s basement. But I've now escaped and will do an update tomorrow :mrgreen:
No rush I have not got a tag for months...

As long as the release fee was not him being a moderator and trust after you resolved the situation Six30 is now in a place of his nightmares.
Although the places of Six30's nightmares is beyond my comprehension :shock:

@oldgrump which tag in south west England didn’t you do??? as in your signature it says 11/12

out of all the miles you have travelled, you only got 4 dealerships ??
Hi @BabyD , still got to do Sammy Millers, been over there 5 times this year, even done 2 Autojumbles there but never on the bike :D
As for Dealerships i keep forgetting them, might try and do them now, now that i finished getting the RBR photo's.

woah there! the 50 point bonus IS applied to east and west Midlands and also North and South Wales.

If it's a different colour on the map it's a different region.
So @mike_smith sounds like your scoring was correct.... unless you haven't got Gaydon museum in which case -50

I will try and check at some point, but things have been a bit crazy

You only need to photograph the Cafes, not sample all the menus. :wink:

I’ve only met 1 other member whilst doing the tags.

Hi @JRH, We never bumped into anyone doing these tags, was going to Pm you to meet up at The Touchdown café at Wellsbourne if you wanted, hence I left the tag's around Stratford, but the day we did them was on the spur of the moment, and late leaving Poole.
Maybe next year, we might arrange something.

But we did have a nice lunch there :D

And as @skyrider says, you got to sample the Menu's :cheers:

Hi @Hoggs and @mike_smith , trouble with some of those, they're in the middle of towns!! so as long as we don't have to do them all!! Because I like to be on the open road more :D

But a good idea, there are a few outside towns or easy access, as this photo from 2018 shows.

Eric is on the sea front at Morecambe easy parking

There are at least 17 in total so entrants can chose which ones to do - local ones in town centres with difficult parking such as Ken Dodd in Liverpool or ones further away but with easy parking

Just an idea
