Tatton Park Classic Car Show.                                      5th and 6th June 2004         

 Prizewinning line up on the Club stand. Saturday.

      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.
      With 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.
      The 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.
      Barbecue chefs Tony Curran and Joe Beaumont did a sterling job of feeding the ever-hungry members.
      The next event here is on 21st and 22nd August 2004. Why not come and join us?
