Club Night - Bingo

An enjoyable time was had by all. Thanks to Dave and Sue for organising the evening.

 

Club Run - Coore Arms, Scruton

A simple run of about 60 miles had been arranged to give everyone (and cars) an early shakedown for the new season.

18 cars gathered at The George at Wormald Green as arranged only to find the place closed.

We therefore started the run, without our usual coffee, from the car park.

A phone call soon solved that problem and we all made for Wildings in Pateley Bridge.

The welcome and service here were brilliant and they supplied coffee and biscuits in abundance at half an hours notice.

After coffee the run took us up Greenhow Hill and along the same road to Threshfield where we turned right at the T junction.

Again it was follow this road until we reached the A684 and again turned right on to Leyburn and Bedale , under the A1 at Leeming Bar.

A couple of miles later it was turn left to Scruton where we reached The Coore Arms.

Most of the run took place in sunshine but there was mist and drizzle over some of the high ground.

Parking is a problem at The Coore Arms but having sampled the hospitality and food quality we understood the popularity.

The general feeling was one of an enjoyable run followed by a good meal and the hiccup at the start was soon forgotten.

Pub Night - Luigi’s

Despite a slow start to the list 24 members enjoyed the Early Bird menu at Luigis.

It always proves a good place to eat. Thanks to Barbara for organising the evening.
