Over 60 people braved wet and windy conditions to attend the recent annual Christmas Party at Ross. We were treated to a short theatrical performance before lunch, and some long-standing members received their 'long service' badges.
Beautiful weather was laid on for those of us who took part in our first Lunch Run to the historic Clarendon Arms at Evandale. It was a special day for Kaye and martin Wilson, who celebrated their 49th wedding anniversary.
Terrific weather greeted a small contingent at the Symmons Plains Cars, Bikes and Bands event. A couple of cars also took to the track to display their prowess. Thanks to Danny and Liam Taylor for the pictures.
Also check out the News page for a video of Wayne Double's Mark II on the track.
The weather was less than kind, but a good turnout of members met at the Chocolate Factory for an early coffee, then drove to Wynyard to inspect the wonderful Francis Ransley collection of early American cars. Then off to Table Cape to see the tulips, followed by lunch at Ilume at Boat Harbour. A few hardy souls went on to Boat Harbour beach. A great day, in spite of the weather.
About 20 members attended this event, and had a lovely time despite the weather patterns.Some 46 cars of all makes and sizes and their owners competed on the day, you will have heard the song 4 seasons in one day, well that was the weather patterns coming past the fine old Lufra Hotel.Club members competing that were noted was Chris Edwards in his XK140, Ed Newton in his E Type and Glen Clements in his 350CI Daimler.Competing in the display competition was Keith Drew with his 1969 E Type and Gary Williams with his recently acquired 1964 Daimler V8-250.In addition there were quite a few of our members attending as spectators who took the advantage to have a leisurely luncheon in the dining room which overlooked the competing cars lining up for their next run up the hill.
Members turned out in droves for our mid-winter Christmas Lunch event in Launceston. The Westbury Parents and Friends association supplied a superb 3-course meal, and there was even musical entertainment provided. (And of course, Martin's endless supply of stories and jokes...)
Twelve cars participated in a recent run to the Mole Creek Market. Stopping on the way at the Westbury Maze for coffee, we then strolled around the market while members of the public strolled around our cars. Afterwards, a delicious lunch at the Mole Creek Hotel's 'Tiger Bar'; highly recommended!
Thanks to Liam, Howard and Danny for the photos.
The inaugural Ian Cummins Memorial Run to Derwent Bridge was held recently, and attracted a good turnout of cars and members. It was a long run, but the great weather made it an enjoyable event. We plan to make this an annual run.
