Farming Yesteryear Scone Palace
Sunday 10th of September Farming Yesteryear.
This was the last car show of the season for the group. The weather forecast was not very positive for the day, dull damp and cloudy. This in no way prevented all the usual supporters from showing their commitment and enthusiasm to the club and to the event.
On arrival, it was a bonus to find that the gazebo was already up to provide shelter and cooking facilities over the day. Many were very disappointed that Weatherspoons in Perth was closed for their usual cooked breakfast to set them up for the day.
On our club stand we had twelve TR6`s three Tr4`s a Swallow Doretti and a MGB GT.
The poor weather with showers every now and again did not prevent the large number of visitors coming to the show which was also hosting the Champion of Champions for the SVVC.
We were very fortunate that in the gazebo there was a constant supply of hot water and motivation talks by the group leaders to keep us on our toes and best behaviour.A walk round the show ground provided us all the chance to view car club stands, individual entries, lorries, busses, motor cycles, bicycles, military vehicles and tractors, autojumble, and the usual fast food outlets. This year we had no need to use the burger vans as we had a BBQ at lunch time and tea time to keep as going against the elements.
I made my usual purchase of two bottles of Cairn O Mhor wine to take home to keep everyone happy.
Having had a BBQ for our tea, meant we were able to leave the show ground without any of the usual hold ups. It was great to see members travel from the Clyde Valley and Grampian Groups to support us on a day although the weather could have been better.
