TR Lincs March 2016
Well Spring has arrived, apologies for the picture but it's the only one I could find with reference to "Lambs". Spring Lambs, get it? Oh never mind! Many of you will have been out no doubt and finished off those winter jobs or as in my case resolved to leave them until next winter. With the season about to kick off I think 2016 is going to be a great year for TR Lincs and looking at the programme that we have so far, which you can view/download via this link, there are some great events and runs out.
Here are some of the highlights since the February Report
Inter Marque Quiz - 26th February
What a shock, 21 teams of 6 took part in the annual Inter Marque Quiz held at the Abbey Lodge in Woodhall, never known a quiz to be so popular, we even ran out of chairs. As some of you know it was TR Lincs turn to host the event as we came 2nd last year, some consolation prize, and I think we did a really good job. Credit in spades goes to Phil and Dianne O'Hara, David and Jane McDonald for compiling the questions and to Malcolm and Sherry Brown and Mags Telford for helping out on the night with collecting and driving the laptop to keep scores despite the Quiz Master's (yours truly) attempt to rush them. The winner, by a close margin, were The Well Wishers with 2nd place taken by Abbey Lodge Too - The Sequel both from the MG Owners' club who will have the pleasure of hosting it next year. Oh and where did we come you ask? TR Lincs two teams came a very creditable 5th and 6th place in what was a particulalrly challenging set of questions - Well done to us.
Here are the events coming up in the next few weeks.
The Mad March Hare Run, 20th March
This is our first run of the year kindly arranged by Derek & Allyson Pywell. We will meet at Uncle Henry's near Kirton Lindsey and depart around 11am. If you arrive early you'll have ample opportunity to wonder around this excellent farm shop and enjoy a relaxed coffee. 10am and then set off through the north west part of the county to eventually end up at West Stockwith at the White Hart for lunch. Please drop Derek an email as soon as possible to make sure you are booked on.
Joint Event with Wensum Group at Snetterton, 9th April
The Swinging Sixties series of races visits Snetterton over this weekend and sees David McDonald racing. If yo would like to join a group to go and watch the racing and enjoy a social BBQ with our friends from the Wensum group then please contact me via this e-mail link so that I can make final arrangements which I will pass on to all those interested in due course.
County Wheels Day, April 24th April
If you would like to take part in this year's County Wheels Day held to coincide with national Drive It Day than can you please contact Phil O'Hara by clicking here to let him know you would like to attend the event at Jubilee Park, Woodhall Spa.
