TR Lincs November 2017 Report
Here I am writing this newsletter sat in our caravan up in York desperately trying not to acknowledge the on-set of winter. Those warm sunny runs out with our cars over last summer seem a distant memory now. No worries though, the prospect of a fantastic 2018 TR season looming keeps the enthusiasm up and you never know some of those winter jobs that have been put off for the last 2 years might even get done, or on the other hand!!!
Activities since last meeting …….
October 8th – Goulceby, Lincolnshire
Peter and Cheryl Heath kindly organised a run that saw us all gather at Tesco's car park down at Canwick Road. A great turnout of 9 cars then set off on a well crafted route heading out of Lincoln towards the north east eventually heading out into the Wolds over roads that I'm amazed Peter and Cheryl managed to find. We ended our run with an excellent lunch at another find, the Three Horseshoes at Goulceby – Google it!
November 5th – Thimbleby, Horncastle
Our bonfire run ably planned by Jane and Laurence Gray saw us meet up at their home in Maltby-le-Marsh where we were treated to coffee and cake to fortify us before we set of and to sing happy birthday to Celia and Mags who both celebrated their birthdays on that very day. Once again we were treated to a picturesque run through the Wolds over some interesting roads. We all ended up at the Durham Ox just outside the lovely village of Thimbleby for our now almost mandatory Sunday lunch.
Looking forward to 2018
We have already got some exciting events planned for 2018 and you can read all about those below. Of course we still need to ensure that we have a good variety of our own locally grown runs and that's where it's over to you. If you fancy organising a Sunday run, or even a summer mid-week evening one, then now's the time. If you have any questions on how to arrange one, it's not difficult, then please get in touch. Looking forward to going on your run already!
