 Xmas Meal December 2018

 58 of us sat down for the Xmas Meal at the Golden Cross, with a large table in the bar area as well as the restaurant and Matt and his team gave us an excellent meal, the only complains were there was too much food but it was all very hot and tasty.  There was the usual Quiz, this year it was anagrams based on local towns & villages and Shakespeare plays.  There were 2 teams tied for the winners prize but Graham just managed to answer the tie-breaker question first to take the box of chocolates, they were kind enough to share them around the room.  There was of course the prize draw with every couple receiving a prize.  Mike Green helped the festivities along by providing boxes of glow sticks for all the tables and then brought our word sheets for the sing along to the 12 days of Christmas.  A great night out, here are a few photos of the night and as you can see everyone got dressed up for the evening.

 Birthdays Run to Nuffield Place

We Celebrated the birthdays of 3 MGs, Helen's TC is 70 this year, Fred's Magnette is 60 and my B is 50 years old this year. To help celebrate this event we had a run out starting at the Artyard Café in Enstone and ending at Nuffield Place, the home of Lord Nuffield, who was previously known as William Morris and was the founder of The Morris Garages. At Nuffield Place we were allowed to line our cars up outside the House entrance, just in time for the sun to appear and ready for us to cut the cake. I much appreciate that no one was rude enough to point out my error on the cake but that didn't stop everyone enjoying it (I didn't bring any home!!). Another good day and the house is also very interesting to look round.
Here are some of the photos:

 Brailes Show 11th August 2018

 

The weather forecast this morning was accurate for today for our visit to Brailes Show. We all arrived in sunshine which soon gave way to light cloud and was getting ready for the rain to come later in the evening but I think we were all home before the rain arrived. The show was as busy as ever with lots of stalls, the marque with the village competitions and the Gymkhana in the adjacent field. We also had a very good turnout with 15 MGs, some of which were new folks and may come and join us for future Club Nights. Some of us even drove into the parade ring for a show to the gathered crowds. Another good day, thanks to Fred for arranging the pitch.

Chilly Willy WARMER Run 2018

Sunday 24th June 2018

The Golden Cross to The Oak, Upton Snodsbury

Well the Chilly Willy WARMER Run was definitely 'warmer' than on New Year's Day. The sun was beating down on us all day. A select band set off from the Golden Cross (suitably refreshed with coffee and the odd bacon roll) for the 25 mile scenic run to The Oak in Upton Snodsbury where we all enjoyed a very good lunch.

Quiz on Wheelz 2018

Tuesday 19th June

The Golden Cross to Moat House, Alcester

Many thanks to Fiona (oh and I think Graham hindered a bit) for organising this evenings Quiz on Wheelz. It was a very pleasant drive around the lanes near Alcester. There were not too many arguments about the answers and Graham didn't listen anyway. Prizes were awarded and the first was to Alan & Liz with a creditable 27 on their first QonW event (will they come again?). The top score was shared between Paul & Caroline and Lech & Pam tied on 35 points but the tie breaker was to know where Fiona used to live in Alcester, we were all totally wrong but Lech & Pam were less wrong so they won the box of chocolates. The extra prize was for the 'Dingbats Quiz' this was even harder than one of Nigel's quizzes but Lech & Pam were on form again with lots of assistance from David & Diane. Well done everyone, another great evening.

Stratford Races Day Out Report

Sunday 20th May 2018

Here are some photos from last Sunday's day out at the Stratford Races, thanks Norman. It looks like Nigel put on another good show (well done) and as you will see in the photos, it looks like he can still wall on water!!
Comment from Nigel: "A great day out, my feedback tells me every one enjoyed themselves again. I saw a few standing in the queue to pick up their winnings. Great photos again. How fortunate I bumped into the Starter that day (Robbie Supple) who gave us an insight to his starting procedures and how he copes with starting the Grand National. (always a difficult one) with 40 Horses and Riders to contend with. If we do Raceday next year I will see if I cant come up with another Celeb!"
Finally a comment from Norman: "Great day yesterday. Could not have been better in all respects - errrrrh, oh yes it could. We had to leave early cause my shirt went the same way as last year! Many thanks for your great organisation and talk/lecture on the subject of racing - most informative and enjoyable. BUT, next year can you give us the winners, please."

Churchill Show 5th June 2016

A convoy of 8 cars set off from the Golden Cross (many thanks to fred for organising the route) in dull conditions to collect Steve in his MGF in Broadway, by which time we were in the cloud.  We arrived at Churchill to find half of our allotted space had been taken by other cars but we all managed to park reasonably close together.  After a quick coffee it was agreed to meet back at the chairs for lunch at 1 O'clock by which time the clouds had started to clear to give us fine sunny afternoon.  The show was better than ever with nearly 600 cars of all shapes and sizes on display.  The selection of different Marques was vast with lots of rare cars to see.  An other great day out.  Here are some photos taken by Graham Robson, with a few of mine.
