       FIRST  EVENING  RUN  OF  THE  SEASON

On the 25th April, John and Neil were volunteered to organise an evening run. To their amazement, the Club Secretary had picked the best evening we had this year, the weather was sunny with blue skies ; all this after weeks of cold and damp.

hill climb  We gathered at the Gala Club and in convoy followed John to the Prescott Hill Climb where a run up the World famous Bugatti circuit was laid on: many thanks go to the Bugatti Club for allowing us to use their facilities. All enjoyed the experience, except Neil whose car revolted against being woken up from it’s winter sleep by dropping back into slumber each time pointed at the hill !!;A run of about 20 miles, based on the usual “Tulip diagrams”, through the local villages ended at The Mill at Withington where several members were heard to say “they had not been ‘ere fur years”. This was confirmed by no-one ordering Chicken in the Basket, the delicacy of the Inn for children. It must be reported that the car of four made only one stop --- the next run must include more refreshment stops.

             

John and Neil hope you all enjoyed the evening and look forward to the next run on Tuesday 23rd May when the volunteers, dictated by the Club Secretary, will be Trevor and Sue.

PS the run up Prescott Hill was as good as an experience gets.  I just want to know why the steward at the top was yelling at me.  She was screaming "Course record" or something like that
