St Roses 2010

This was the the sixth time the club had been at St Roses for their annual Wheel nuts show. Fifteen cars turned up for our stand to try to defend the cup we won last year as best stand. These ranged from the fifties to the modern day. Of these cars we had a Chesil from Mark and an MG Mazda from Adrian. As usual there was a good turnout with it being the first main event of the year. We were all set for a day of interesting conversation and the ladies cakes. Lynn had made her legendary brownies whilst Joyce had brought along fruit cake ( not Graham - the edible sort). But first off for obligatory bacon rolls for which the school is renown. After this the stalls including the produce stall and the Tombola. This is where every one from the club buys lots of tickets in order to try to win the star prize which was a bottle of Glenmorangie. It was a good cause as the school is approaching the end of its £1.15 million fund raising task for the new Hydrotherapy pool. The foundations are down so lets hope it wont be too long before its complete.

After a leisurely lunch meal it was off to see all the cars at the show. Once again there was a good turnout and it took a while to see them all. The tension was mounting as the afternoon was progressing towards the climax of the prizegiving. Brian was worried in case we won again and that meant an extension to the trophy cabinet. Sue, our treasurer, was also worried for two reasons. Firstly she might have to pay some money for the extra wood required and secondly she was wondering if her house was still intact after getting two new cats.



At last, the results. We did not win, our friends at the Cotswold Classic Car Club won. Brian and Sue were relieved. All there was left was the auction for the flight in the Tiger Moth. It was something I liked the look of but as a poor pensioner it was too rich for me. Still my frinds would help with a whip round. No such luck - they all developed a sudden interest in their shoes and whistling was all around.

Once again the end of another day in pleasant company and off home

Thanks to everyone who turned up.
