November 2018 Events Roundup

Posted on Updated on

Albox fiesta took place over the first weekend of November and as part of the festivities, a classic car show was organised on Sunday 4th. There was a huge turnout, which surpassed expectations, with cars, tractors and motor cycles of all kinds being proudly displayed by their owners. Club members Gordon, Steve and Amanda are members of the organising committee and worked hard all day to make a success of the event. Following a static show in the morning, vehicles took part in a run followed by beer (limitless and included in the ticket price) and BBQ outside the football stadium. Eight cars and owners from our club joined in and had a great time. Have a look at some videos here:

Our usual club meeting was held on the first Thursday, 8th with an almost record attendance of 38 folks! We almost ran out of chairs. We welcomed new members John and Nita Bailey and made them feel at home in no time. ‘Parish Notices’ took some time this month with lots to talk about events before Xmas and plans for 2019. When everyone was up to speed, Alan and Margaret delivered one of the funniest quizzes to date (style and delivery, not content). Our President scored the most this month and has the honour of putting something together for next month.

Sunday 11th November was bright and sunny for the classic car event at La Cinta, organised by a local Spanish car club. There was a good display of well prepared cars this year and a good turn out by club members and you can see a photo of the group in this month’s Newsletter, or on next month’s Crime Watch. A good morning’s casual chat and talking with other enthusiasts.; what it’s all about.

Well, it was a rainy start to the day, but that didn’t prevent more than thirty folks and a dog setting off from Hotel Ballabona for the November run on 22nd . After coffee in Pulpi, the group continued to Mazarron, where a full complement of 37 enjoyed a good lunch near the sea. See the December newsletter for a group photo. Well done Peter and Christine.

And, so to the regular 950 Club meeting on 25th, which was well supported. Among many ‘new cars’, which came along there was a very smart VW Karman Ghia and a ‘eye popping’ 50s Hudson Commadore, which was in concours nick. See what you’re missing?

See you next month.
