The club are running a historic run starting frommwhere the club was founded

23rd july at the M1 newport pagnell services 1977

 

you can dump a form from the home page of the club website its expected to

start arrivals at the Ramada hotel on the services at Newport Pagnell from 9.30

leaving around 11ish to trundle up to Hq for a BBq etc.

 

its £10 per person for lunch and plaque etc.( edit see note below its now FREE)

 

I cant do Triumfest but hope to get some locals to take part as its on our herts and beds doorstep

down load the form and join in ( cant attach it on this silly tablet thingy)

What a fantastic day

Founders day was a huge success with 64 cars meeting at Newport pagnall services ,then heading up to hq in Lubenham.

Another 75 cars where waiting in Lubenham.

Bbq for just over 200 people and the sun shone ,a real successful day thank you to all the ha team and to everyone who attended

Do you accept zimmer frames Ha

 

im sure we dont want to wait ten years to get HQ filled with members

 

we won an open day some time back when area 'prizes' were awarded , its normally closed at weekends when most members are available, with standing the staffing requirement and not requiring BBq etc

some runs terminating at hq organised by area's fits into use your car but the gates are shut

 

dont see any easy way round this too frequently but shows how popular the sunday run proved to be .

and needs building upon.

Hq is open for quite a few weekends a year look in the Courier,we support Lubenham village for open gardens in May and Scarecrow weekend in September both are well attended by the general public and areas of the Tssc do finish runs to coincide as this gives people a choice of what they can do once at hq.

 

I couldn't agree more Pete it was fantastic to see hq packed ,have you thought any more about doing a ŵorkshop ? You mentioned this ages who

Yes put a lot of thought into this orig idea was at home , then its grown, i reckon reality is

what with a very busy area and our duxford event approaching (sept 10th) it will need to be later in mid september for

a twiddle and tweak tutorial weekend for carbs /settings/tappets/ bit of gearbox/ tracking toe in etc.

 

will talk to Bern about how and when and publish a date

I once suggested the idea of a "back to basics" rally in Lubenham, doing an event the old way, ie Farmer's field, marquee, centred on club HQ and the local facilities in Lubenham. Hopefully the village would do well out of it, the HQ would get a lot of visitors, and we would not have the expense of hiring a big venue with all the costs that entails. How about it?
