The meeting at The Old Silent Inn was well attended.
As usual the food was good and the chatter and natter was lively.
On May the 28th Jean and myself were to travel south to Dover. Then on the 29th meet up with Gerry and Mary Le-Vey for the crossing over the Chanel to France and on to the Circuit Historique de Laon. Unfortunately Gerry's back complaint prevented him from driving and so he had to cancel his trip.
He is still poorly. We wish him well.
Jean and I did go on to Laon and had a very enjoyable weekend. Barrie and Pat Simkin also went over. We met Barrie in the square on Sunday.
We have three new members in our area and one of them came to the meeting. John Roberts hails from Otley Although John did not own a TR then, he has since bought a TR6. We look forward to him bringing it to Castle Howard.
Castle Howard is of course on 3rd 4th and 5th of July.
We have got TS2 or we will have it by the end of this month. We are going down to Didcot to pick it up
