Past Events

Sunday 13 July 2008

This is the third time a rally has been held at the home of Tony and Daphne Leach. The number of Club cars on display on the front lawn was just under the fifty mark which was almost 50% up on the same event two years ago. After being parked, members enjoyed a Pimms on the formal lawn, duly dispensed by my family - some 28 litres being consumed by the members and guests before they returned to their picnic tables for lunch. This was a hog roast with potatoes, coleslaw and salad followed by a choice of dessert produced and served by a local firm specialising in outside barbecue meals. There were generous portions of meat and I know the pork 'crackling' was very popular. Sometime after lunch the 'Red Arrows' flew over us - people thought I had kept quiet about this special air display but it was a bonus as Goodwood Festival of Speed was also in progress at the same time. My grateful thanks to all who attended and in particular David and Anne Steel who helped park the cars along with David Gray and, of course, my family for all the help they gave me in the preparation and subsequent clearing up.
