Farming Yesteryear 2018 Scone Palace.
Farming Yesteryear Scone 9th of September
The weather forecast for the day could have been better. I drove through some rain and fog before meeting some of the Clyde Valley Group for breakfast in Perth. After a cooked breakfast and a catch up we made our way to the showground with the weather brightening up.
This show has always been a firm favourite of the Tay Group due the fantastic range of vehicles on display, steam engines, tractors, motor bikes, military vehicles, car club displays, auto jumble and classic cars.
We had thirteen TR`s on our stand, two TR 4s and eleven TR 6s which attracted a lot of interest. It was brilliant to see Richard's newly restored pimento TR 6 on the road. It is a credit to him and all his hard work. The weather continued to brighten up which was a bonus with it being the last show of the season.
After a look round the auto jumble there were very few TR parts to be found due to a large purchase made on the Saturday by one of the Clyde Valley Group. He bought a job lot for various projects. I found no wine on sale and ended up buying a boiler suit that doesn't fit!Scone has always been a very difficult show to get out of at the end of the day and this year, again, a BBQ took place while the exhibitors were leaving to allow us to have a clear run home. Many thanks to Steve and Duncan for organising this event.
