May Events Roundup

Posted on

Firstly, a catch up on last month. While some went to Bar Laguna on Sunday 30th April, other members joined Club Clasicos Bahia for a short run from Garrucha to Mojacar for a static display and lunch. The club line up included a Jaguar, a Mayflower and a Vitesse. Well done chaps.

Club meeting. Well attended as usual, with three guests interested in joining: get an arm lock on them! We had an update on all things regalia and were harangued about not using open ended spanners on brake unions and bleed nipples. We also have a supply of donated classic car magazines to give away, so have a rummage next time.

Monthly run, 10th May. Some set off from Los Gallardos, others from elsewhere, all to meet at Uliela del Campo for coffee. From there a great trip through the countryside to Cero Gordo for lunch. No less than 31 folks (27 members and guests) sat down together for a generous lunch. Well done Team Riley.

It was a busy for Team Riley, because, wearing another set of hats, the Flower Festival at the Aljambra Chapel was great success, clearly the result of much labour! The club supported the event, on Saturday 27th May, with thirteen cars in attendance, plus a contribution from Snr Longo with some ‘Yanks’. The flower displays in the chapel were remarkable and reflected involvement from both communities. Thanks for the free burgers chaps!

And, finally. Perhaps our best club turnout at Bar Laguna with no less than 10 cars supporting the mixed line up. Lots of members sitting around and chatting, looking at the cars and promoting our club. Just what a static morning meet should be.
