Picnic Run

30 members plus some juniors

enjoyed this day in the sun up at Middleham Gallops. It makes a nice relaxing break after the show.

The route up there was challenging and certainly covered new ground for some of us.

Possibly looking for a new venue for next year, any suggestions would be welcome.

Knotford Nook

We had seven cars on our stand and a couple of others displayed elsewhere on the field.

It is a popular mixed event with everything from push bikes to big wagons and a number of fairground organs (fortunately not too close this year).

Pub Night - Smiths Arms incorporating Pride of Ownership

Eighteen members brought their cars to the Smith’s and we were also joined, for drinks,

by Mike and his family who brought along two midgets and a frogeye.

Whilst the dark evening slightly deterred some members from viewing the cars,

a winner was chosen – Congratulations to John & Lynne Lumley with their MGC.

The evening, with good food and friendly chat, was enjoyed by all and it is hoped to

repeat the Pride of Ownership next year, but a little earlier in the year so we benefit from a lighter evening.

Spring Break

We are organising a spring break from Wed 26th June to Sat 29th June at Dunsley Hall, Nr Sandsend, Whitby.

Please note the dates have been changed from the ones in the Distributor.

The cost will be £360.00 per couple for the three nights on a dinner, bed, breakfast rate.

There will also be complimentary tea or coffee and cake on each afternoon of our stay and also champagne and canapés before dinner.

We hope to combine a NYMRailway trip with this break.


Member of the Year

Yes it’s that time of year again.

Please exercise your right to choose the member/couple that you think has

contributed much to the success of the Club this year.
