Thanks to everyone who came along to club night on Wednesday, it was good to see you all.
We welcomed a new member, Andy Howell who has just bought a very nice, blue 1969 MGB GT. As a former owner of a white MGA, he is someone who knows the marque well.
We covered some of the runs over August which included the mid minth run to the Red Lion at Brafield in the Green.
Ian gave a brief over view of the WAMGOC Octagonal run which Martin, Jackie, Geoff & Liz also attended, a good run that went to Broughton Castle. I and Yvonne also did the South Downs run on Sunday 2nd Sept, a very well organised and excellent prepared route, finishing on the green in Eastbourne. Will try and do next years, which is their 30th.
So coming up in September…..
