TR Register Shropshire Group "Turkey Trot 2018"

TR Register Shropshire Group

It's that time again. We've changed the clocks, done the Autumn Run & the days are getting shorter. There is only one thing to look forward to – THE TURKEY TROT!

We will meet at Telford Services, just off the M54 junction 4, TF11 8TG, at 09:30am for a PROMPT 10:00 start. Please bring presents (one per person) for the draw – something inexpensive and fun, outrageous or useful.

There will be a festive run (ie decorate your cars), via Cannock Chase, to the Staffordshire Christmas Fare at Uttoxeter Race Course

Afterwards, we will drive to The Aston at Newport, TF10 9EJ, for a Christmas Lunch. Please see the attached Menu. Lunch is priced at £18.95 per person for 2 courses & £21.95 for three courses. Would you please give your lunch order to David by club night 14th November. Payment is required with your order – cash or cheques payable to "TR Register Shropshire Group" only please. Please pay Stuart.
