Default Good write up

Not a lot to add, except RIP Bristol! May all of us keep its good name up and try and forget the financial shenanigans of the last few years. A sad end to the Crook era and even Toby's well intentioned efforts.

Default Support for BOC, BODA and BOHT

Agreed on RIP Bristol.

We should all give our support to the BOC, BODA and BOHT in their efforts to salvage what they can from the BCL wreckage - records, spares, drawings - although it looks like this is not a situation which will be swiftly concluded.

If there is a chance to obtain any parts etc from the ashes , I would support a levy , once value has been determined, or a loan set against future purchases, or some such scheme to allow BHT to buy what they can!

I have already let the BOC chairman know that I would like to do the same - we all really need to chip in now.

I feel so sorry for Brian Morelli who just had a workshop named after him last year (having worked at Bristol for very many years) as well as Graeme Payne and his son Cameron (parts) plus all the other staff (sadly no names).

I will help out if a deal can be done. In 3 short months we have lost 3 big supporters of Bristol owners: Martin Barnes, Brian May and BCL itself. Deepest sympathy to the respective families and employees.
