 AGM & Club Night

Presentations

8th January 2019

After the AGM we had 2 presentations, David had looked through the registers for all of last events (including Club Nights) to tot up who had attended the most and he found no less than 5 people with the same number of attendances, in alphabetical order: Fred Bury, Alan Cleobury, Paul Dunster, Steve Entwistle and Nigel Hook. In order to present an award it was necessary to have a 'draw' to decide the winner, so the five names were put into a pint pot and Dawn drew out Nigel, who was given the bottle of Champagne, well done to all and thanks for supporting the club so often. The second presentation was a thank you, which we like to do. A lot of work was put into making the Club's 30th Anniversary go so well and one of those jobs was to come up with the idea and produce the coasters that everyone received. It was very difficult to think of something different for this recipient as he is in the field of PR but a friend of mine has a laser cutter and he was persuaded to spend a lot of time to produce an image that could be laser cut. The final image was made up of 3 layers laid over each other (thanks to Chris Jarman for producing it) and I was able to present this to Norman Large, with many thanks from the Club.

Chilly Willy Run 2019

New Year's Day

The Potting Shed Café to The Golden Cross

 

Over 60 people and 35 cars, two thirds of which were classics or MGs which is great to see in the middle of winter, there was even a TC.  It was a bit busy at the Potting Shed Café, we had many more people than I booked for and they had not reserved all the space promised but the coffee was very good.  It was a good place to start from though and we enjoyed a nearly 30 mile scenic drive along lanes not normally used and the weather was kind to us and very mild.

As ever the Golden Cross put on a very good lunch, very hot, plentiful and tasty, despite the restaurant being full and us overflowing into the bar area.  It got a bit rowdy later when Graham in the 'naughty corner' (Fiona's comment) started letting off the balloons but all in good fun.

I hope you all enjoyed the day, thanks to Lech for assistance setting the route and Norman for the photos.
