Grantown on Spey Motormania weekend 2017
Grantown on Spey Motormania 2/3rd of September
The weekend started at the Gloagburn Farm Shop Café outside Methven. The Tay group met up with the Clyde Valley group for our breakfast before tackling the fantastic roads to Grantown on Spey.
Once the car park was filled with a fantastic display of Tr6`s of an incredible range of colours we were off. Our run took us up round Aberfeldy, Pitlochry across the Moulin Moors to the Ski Centre at Glenshee for lunch.
Unbelievably we almost ran into a group of Dutch Tr`s going in the opposite direction. One topic of conversation was how much chicken do you need to make a bowl of soup? None was the correct answer if you worked for BT.On our final leg to Grantown on Spey we saw the Queen and her support team traveling to the Braemar Gathering. Many of the group were seen giving her the usual enthusiastic waves and thumbs ups. The run was just fantastic with stunning views, great weather and Duncan making sure the pace was kept up.
We all got booked into the Grant Arms efficiently and settled in. The Craigs' host a wee get together which involved drinks, snacks, laughs and the magic ingredient of Scottish humour. Dinner a was a proper three course job with plenty of choice and of high standard. We then returned to the lounge for coffee and a bed time night cap as needed. Much entertainment was enjoyed by all - board games, poor singing, piano playing, jokes and stories.After a good night's sleep we headed downstairs for our breakfast. With a view onto the high street you could see the exhibitors setting up. We had our usual pitch and after getting our cars in position we are joined by the Highland Group bringing the display up to thirty Tr`s. A fantastic scene with almost the full range of Tr`s on display for the public to see. The weather was again just superb with the main street full of classic cars and traders selling their wares. The club stand brought a lot of public interest.
We could not have had a better weekend, weather, company, cars, scenery, and laughs. Many thanks to our Highland, Clyde and Tay Group Leaders for organising such a successful event.
