This year's Summer Weekend was located on the camp site next to The Wharf Tavern at Goldstone near Market Drayton. The weekend started with a very damp barbeque seeing the only rain of the weekend. The remainder of the weekend it was hoods down all the way to Foxfield Railway, Trentham Gardens Shopping Village and the Gladstone Pottery Museum on Saturday and a trip to the Anderton Canal Boat Lift on the Sunday. Stoke Group joined the tour of the Gladstone Pottery and some members joined the Stoke Group on the Saturday and the Sunday as they were also having their summer weekend at the same time.
Sunday morning saw local members and one member from the Red Rose Group take a short run through Shrewsbury Town Centre and on to Pontesbury and over the Stiperstones circling back towards Shrewsbury to the Shrewsbury Classic Car Festival 2018 at Longden Village Hall.
Thirteen TRs turned out for a mid week run down to South Wales starting with a super breakfast at Ludlow Food Centre followed by a drive along sweeping Mid Wales roads over the beautiful Brecon Beacons to lunch at The Tair Bull Country Inn at Libanus. Over 250 miles covered and no break downs!!! Thanks go to Greg Washington for planning the route and organising lunch etc. A truly great TR day out! Obviously the weather was icing on the cake.
