September 2018 Events Roundup

Posted on Updated on

September 2018

Our meeting on 6th was attended by 23 folks, not bad considering the heat. We heard about forthcoming events, among other things, and had a little talk by me about rubber fuel line and breather hose failures and sources for good quality replacements. Steve and Amanda presented their first quiz and a fine effort it was too! Well done both.

A disappointing turn out for the run on 20th (organised by David and Sue) was more than compensated by the enthusiasm of the 13 folks taking part.

On 21st, we had our first Club Film Night, which featured two Castrol rally films from the 60s. They went down very well with those attending as did the fish and chip supper afterwards. Thanks to John Cooper and friends for helping make the numbers up.

And finally to the 950 Club meeting, which returned to its usual venue at Bar Laguna. A good turnout with no less the 29 cars (6 of those from our club) which spanned everything from a Rolls Royce to a Citroen 2CV and a Lada 4×4 (mine). A good morning spent chatting.

See you next month

One of our members has seen the light.  He has got himself a classic car and has decided to sell his two motorbikes.

He has a 2012 Triumph Boniville and a 1973 Honda CB 175 for sale.  Full details can be found on our For Sale & Wanted page under Miscellaneous.

June 2018 Events Roundup

The club meeting this month moved to Bar La Union, where we were hosted by club members, Gary and Sue and their staff. It was a really busy and noisy affair with an excellent quiz prepared by Ken and Sue, who are currently in UK. After the meeting many stayed for dinner, so a full and enjoyable afternoon.

Saturday 16th saw eleven cars displayed at the craft fair near Velez Rubio. After the morning at the fair, members returned to Peter and Karen’s residence for a wonderful buffet lunch, over-looking the countryside at Bancalejo. Peter and Karen also recently celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary and so members were quick to toast them and wish them another 40 years together!

This month’s run out (21st) was organised by David Manning and it was a spectacular trip through the country side from the starting point, just outside Lubrin, through Uleila del Campo and Albanchez, finishing at Bar La Union in La Alfoquia, for lunch. Thanks to David and the twenty members and guests who supported the event.

And finally for this month, a favourite in my diary: the 950 Club meeting at Bar Laguna where as usual, our club gave good support.

See you next month
