Le Grand Voyage

A small group of MG’s and their owners gathered at Parcevall Hall near Appletreewick with a view to stardom!!

We were invited via Stuart, our Chairman, to make a short film for Harrogate Theatre re the Tour de France.

What fun we had driving up and down the country roads – MG’s and owners enjoying capers with the film crew and push-bikers

and finally a coach party of well presented zombies. I’m sure you will find it difficult to picture the scene.

When we were invited to see the finished film at the theatre – to – as we thought sit in comfortable seats – we were donned in goggles,

ear phones and helmets to pedal our way through the virtual reality film.

It was another MG experience that I wouldn’t have missed for the world!

Film stars we are not, but we all had a thoroughly great time. We laughed till we cried, and of course the cars were amazing.

 

 

Club Night - Blue Plaques of Wetherby

Victor entertained us with a trail of the 18 plaques that have been put up around Wetherby.

He told us the history of each one and accompanied his talk with old and new photos of the locations.

To many of the members it was an insight to a local town and will encourage them to go for a visit.

A map of the trail is available or check out their website at Wetherby Civic Society.

 

 

Club Meal - Shoulder of Mutton

It seems to have been Victor’s month in June, him and Elaine organised the pub night at the Shoulder of Mutton in Kirby Overblow.

It was a night when England were playing and we almost had the pub to ourselves.

They look after us well with a restricted menu for a set price but the food is always well received and appreciated.

 

 

Lotherton Hall

A number of members took part in this show organised by City of Leeds MG & Classic Car Club.

The weather held out for us, visits to the bird garden and/or the hall were included in the entry fee.

(Lack of a dog-sitter and a non-return from a garage meant we had some unusual classics!!)

 

      

 

 

Club Run - Midsummer Run

Maybe the final destination had nothing to do with it but a large number of members met at Wildings in Pateley Bridge

for a Dales run which culminated in a lunch at the Black Sheep Brewery in Masham.

The run covered some of the roads of the Tour de France opening day and many cyclists were clearly testing the roads.

It was a very enjoyable day, many thanks to Jan & Janet for their organisation.
