"The Club that likes to go places"

Our membership continues to grow and our social calendar fills at an alarming rate. We have Sunday lunch runs, mid week evening supper runs through the summer, visits to classic car shows and weekends away. There is a club night every month, meeting at the Buffers, Scholes on the 2nd Monday of the month at 8:00 pm. A very varied programme, with most months having at least one event, helps us keep to our motto: "The Club that likes to go places"

Tadcaster Show

Sunday 7th May 2017

This year's Tadcaster Show was moved forward a couple of weeks on the calendar, compared to 2016. This has proved to be a good idea, avoiding  clashes with other local shows. The weather was also better but some still found it a bit cold.
Attendance at the show was much higher than last year, about 180 cars; an email campaign to previous exhibitors seeming to pay off well. A concours competition was held for those interested, and some superb cars were entered. The winner, a Ford XR3i entered by Mark Stewart set a very high standard, closely followed by the MGA entered by club member Brian Hill and a Rover entered by Graham Lomas. The second and third cars were both only one point behind the winner, so a further examination was made, and Brian's superb tool kit swung it, gaining him the second place. The sponsors choice prize was awarded to the Bedford Dormobile entered by Philip  Hobson.
Many interesting vehicles turned out for the show, one corner being  occupied by Mini Coopers. Two impressive Packards made an appearance and received a lot of attention and much interest was shown in the 1923 Citroen agricultural reaper which could be heard running at times during the day.
A collection was made during the show for Martin House Hospice, and combined with the pre booking donations a sum of £670 was raised, and was presented to Alison Wragg from the hospice, following the prize giving.

Thanks to all those who helped out on the day. Without your efforts shows like this could not be successfully organised.

Many Thanks

Dennis Hodge
