Sunday 17 January 2010

After ten days of snow, ice and impassable roads the thaw eventually arrived with heavy rain - the day before our first meeting of 2010. Hopefully the rain washed the salt from the roads - well, most of it anyway - and Sunday 17th dawned windless with bright sun, a clear blue sky and pleasant spring temperatures - well, almost pleasant anyway.  

Thirteen Club cars, and an assortment of lesser vehicles, brought forty-four members to the Crossbush for a welcome coffee and a chat, before lunch in our own section of the restaurant. Sadly, a mishap in the kitchen resulted in many of the roast potatoes being dropped on the floor and a new batch having to be cooked. Nevertheless, our lunches were served on time and the potatoes turned up later when most plates were nearly empty. Still, this did make it a day which we are more likely to remember.

The Crossbush   It was nice that after being CSS members for many, many years, Steven Page-Mitchell and Jayne Thunder had travelled from Bexhill-on-Sea to join us for their first CSS Pub Lunch. Other long distance travellers joining us for their first CSS lunch were Tony and Jenny Skinner who, coincidentally also came from Bexhill-on-Sea.    

Finally, we were delighted that Dean and Collette Ash had brought along their brand new 'just out of the box' Bentley Continental GT Speed for us to drool over.
