Hi All!

Post by Merc_84 »

So, just a quick "Hi" to introduce myself to everyone as this is my first post!

Im off to Silverstone this weekend for my 1st GP - Immensely excited about it after growing up watching F1 (including watching a race on my wedding day last year.....didn't get to see the end of it however...apparently the registrar just couldn't wait for the checkered flag).

Welcome Merc_84;

You must have a very understanding spouse to let you watch F1 on your wedding day... I know my wife would not have been so understanding!

Surely not; if they are both fans, you would not plan a wedding on a race weekend!

Thanks all!

Indeed we are both race fans.....attending Silverstone this weekend for the 1st time for both of us so were quite excited!!

I think it must have been down to poor planning on our part that our wedding clashed with the race :hehe:

You're spending your first anniversary at the race that almost interrupted your wedding?
WoW!! TRUE fans!!

p.s. don't be so hard on yourself, you probably were limited in trying to line everything up
for the wedding (i.e., ceremony, venue, photographer, etc... etc... etc...)

Speaking of planning a wedding: we're thinking of maybe doing it with a Niagara Falls boat captain. As a local so to speak: do you know anything about this? Pointers?

Nope... never been to a wedding at the Falls;
but, I do know a colleague got married in the
vineyards of Niagara. Could get info, if you like?
