22nd September 2009 Run

 

1Steve and Marion’s first run was held last Tuesday, which apparently was the last official day of the summer. Well, it was certainly dry and not too cold, but it was certainly breezy, and with the start in the middle of Minchinhampton Common, it was a draughty start! Despite this, six cars arrived for the earlier start of 1800 – 3 of them before the organisers managed to arrive!

The early start was due to the earlier sunset at this time of year but this was probably still not early enough as a couple of the drivers opted to depart with their lights on!

 

The route took the cars over some of the lesser known byways of the southern part of the county including Box, Horsley, Kingscote, Ozleworth, Wotton-Under-Edge, Alderley, Hillesley, Didmarton, Leighterton, Chavenage, Cherington and Minchinhampton. The high regard with which the GMGOC is held locally was demonstrated in Cherington by the church ringing its bells as the cars passed through. The route even managed to pass the house where one of the drivers was born. (On the kitchen table apparently!).

2The Old Lodge at the finish put aside a room especially for us, and the 12 crew members were joined by 6 others who were unable to do the run. A very convivial evening followed with everyone enjoying the food and the company. There was a fair amount of lingering after the plates had been cleared away as people delayed going back out into the dark for their drive home.

Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves (Which was a relief!) and the route managed to cover some of the South Cotswolds that the more seasoned campaigners had not covered, which was an achievement in itself.

 

Now all we have to do is wait until April for the next one.
