Has been a few years since I last went to POL but on previous occasions the people on the gate directed me to where most of the other 800's were parked.

They do seem to like the cars parked in model order.

I've never been to a POL and don't know what to expect. What time would you be leaving Beaconsfield? What facilities are at the meet, Food drink, toilets?

food drink toilets all there, generally leave beaconsfield about 7.45/8.00am usually quite a large convoy to follow there.. most parking is done by model i.e. sd1, r800, r75, etc... regards ricky

This'll be my first POL. It'll be nice to meet the motley crew and put some names to faces.

^^Will be good to meet you - are you actually a farmer?

I won't be convoying but I'll be there, possibly with my other half in tow.

Just a "trainee"

Don't think you can call yourself a proper farmer until you've done the job for 50 years. :lol:

I'll be there in my Sterling. Used to get sent a layout of Cofton Park but not had one this year. Either way, you usually get pointed in the general direction.
