February 2018 Events Roundup

February 2018

Thankfully, we were lucky enough to have the ‘big’ room for our meeting on the 1st, which was also the club’s AGM. No less than 49 members and partners packed into the room and this was our largest ever attendance at any meeting! We must be getting it right.

As is customary, the committee stood down and much to everyone’s relief I’m sure, offered themselves for re-election, which was agreed. So, you have the same ol’ lot back again for another year!

At the close of the meeting we had our usual quiz, but with a change for the future; the loser gets to do the next quiz. This caused a little concern​,​me thinks​,​and some unusually high scores! Minutes of the AGM will be circulated separately.

On February 22nd an adventurous run to a dramatic mountain pass at Alto Velefique saw a mixed fleet of ‘classics’ and ‘moderns’  deal with the series of 180 degree bends leading to the top and a chance to stop and enjoy the superb views. The decent took the column to Bacares for a well deserved lunch where organisers Alan and Dickie could relax with the demanding part of the trip safely completed

​​​On 25th, ​​t​he 950 Club again moved to a new location; Hotel Balla​b​ona. We all welcomed the sight of Phil and Mary clattering in with their ‘new’ 2CV, and what a little smasher it is too! To show the spread of cars which turn up at this relaxed ‘freestyle’ get-together, a ​’​Roller​’​was also in attendance. Another good turn out by club members to support the 950 Club.
