Soon after acquiring my Golf Mk IV a couple of years ago one of it’s tailgate struts started to come adrift and when I checked on the internet how I might fix it I stumbled on the UK MKIVs Forum which provided the answer.

A couple of month’s ago I revisited the site to get some advice on brakes and noticed that a couple of members were organising a Megameet at Frankies Field, Grendon Lakes, Northamptonshire at the friendly price of completely free and managed to get to the last day of the meeting which included a show and shine competition and a game of cricket, above winner of the best engine bay award was “tolucophoto”.

All too soon the cricket was over, I never broke my duck in three innings nor did I make a catch, and the prizes had been awarded and it was time to say good bye, I look forward to returning to next years event when I hope to make a weekend of it.

More pics of the event on these links from dan Ward and LTgoodevil, my thanks to our hosts Dan and Royce.
