Winterslow Village Fete

10 May 2018 - 06:52 PM

Hi all, Winterslow Village Fete have invited us once again.  Takes place on 16th June starting at 12 noon.  We would like a few (or many) cars to grace the field in aid of the local Scouts & Village Hall.


We shall have an evening BBQ for those attending or we can enjoy the live music at the Rec.   Or we could manage both.


Music continues 'til 11pm.


Names & cars attending please.

So Little Time So Much To Do ---- Part Two

09 May 2018 - 11:37 PM

Had a wonderful holiday in Scotland playing on Loch Katrine -- a beautiful 12 mile stretch of crystal clear water, while you lot were pondering the future direction of our car club at the AGM, if you didn't go maybe time/distance or WHY prevented you voting. To be sure the club is directed by just those few (40) votes.   Hopefully the members will get what they dream of, & the renewed committee will take the club forward with an increase in clear management leading to more paid up members & events.  We shall still be around in Florin after our imminent trip to Spain, she still needs work on her smoking habit but has managed 50,000 miles on top of Sierra total so have not found the time to correct our blue haze yet.

This is Part Two --- a new direction/toy purchased very recently for my Birthday/Christmas/Anniversary by my girlfriend Sylvia.

"Suilven is a 26 foot 2 ton steam launch powered by a 10 hp compound engine; boiler runs at 200 psi fired by Welsh Dry Steam Coal,  she can make 9 knots when pressed ( uses a lot of steam )  In normal cruising she uses just 1 kg of coal per mile which costs around 20 pence. 


May be passing your way sometime just listen for her whistle.


Hants & Dorset Monthly Meet May

28 April 2018 - 10:46 AM

Hi all, May is nearly upon us & I haven't said a word about a May meet.

We have Stoneleigh covering the first week-end ( & a bank holiday ) & we take Florin to Spain again ( With S&L+MX5 ) which takes out the 3rd week-end -- & then we have the last week-end is also a bank holiday ( which may be busy with family)


This just leaves the week-end of 12/13th May ---- any ideas --- could just do a quiet pub lunch some-where central to all who wish for a run --- or ???            Ideas please & names/location if interested.   Will then look for a venue.
