A dull start
on Saturday heralded this popular event, fortunately the rain kept away
for the whole weekend and Sunday turned out to be very hot and the park
was packed with visitors.
In a determined effort to improve the Northern
Centre’s ‘best club stand’ podium position our stand was decorated
with masses of planters sporting red white and blue flowers, a three-line
whip had ensured that the regular attendees had planted up two of each.
Smart new flags and poles adorned the stand but the ‘piece de
resistance’ was the Swiss theme.
several of the members due to travel to St Moritz for the international
meeting in August, the skis, posters, flags and cotton wool snow adorned
the ten big Healeys and three Frogeyes. Margaret Austin had even made up
fluffy white pads to fit in front of the tyres, supposedly representing
snow, but many were unconvinced.
result of all this effort was second prize on the Saturday. Mercedes won
first prize but they were manufacturer sponsored and had a large beer tent
in which to entertain the organisers.
chefs Tony Curran and Joe Beaumont did a sterling job of feeding the
next event here is on 21st and 22nd August 2004. Why
not come and join us?
