Chris and Bettys Second Run

27th July 2010

The weather forecast approaching tuesday's run was mixed. About 5.30pm my neighbour asked me if I had seen the torrential downpour at Cheltenham - were we going to have a washout? I need not have worried as 20 cars turned up and barely a spot of rain fell whilst we were assembling at the Gala club.

 

The run took us out of Gloucester to the West, through the villages of Hartpury, Upleadon , and Ketford before converging in Bromsberrow Heath.

 

 

 

 

 


Here the villagers had mixed reactions to MG's flying in all directions. From this point the route became more challenging with multiple NSP's (no sign posts). Several repored the strange but beautiful sight of a mass of white and red flowers growing in the middle of a field, but could offer no explanation. It was shortly after this point that God intervened with an RTA (Road traffic accident) at one of the crossroads along the later section. Early drivers were allowed through, but the police then finally decided to close the road. Undeterred by this Trev and Sue, showing real MG determination, diverted through Dymock, circled back and still managed to rejoin the route at a later junction in time for the meal.

 


The car park at the Walwyn Arms in Much Marcle was full by 8.30pm as everyone arrived. We had the restaurant all to ourselves and time to admire the record collection, there were no volunteers though to provide a musical diversion using the instruments available.


Late news included that a certain MG had found the route difficult as there were limited opportunities to top up the 'radiator' en route, this was carefully noted and will be addressed on the next run.
