There will be two races of the TVR Championship on the 9th Sept Don't yet know what time qualification and racing starts. Tickets on Line are £10 for adults and £15 on the gate, OAP's get in for £10 on the gate
This month's meeting will be another run out - meet at the Kingfisher as usual at 7pm with a view to setting off by 7.15pm for a run up to the Stork at Condor Green just for a drink. Not many of us chose to eat at the last run out and we sort of ended up in two groups in the pub. Meeting at 7pm allows the majority of people to eat beforehand.
Suggest going up the A6 to Lancaster and then coming back down to Condor Green (It's near Glasson Dock).
On the way back we could split into two groups - Group one going back across Cockerham Marsh to Blackpool area and the second cutting across to the A6 / M6 and back down to Preston.
Thanks to Dave Welton for the suggestion - see you all on Thursday.
The next monthly meeting takes place on Thursday 8th June and the plan is to have another run out with a slightly earlier start. Can we please meet at 6.30pm at The Kingfisher with a view to setting off at 6.45pm - hopefully you will all have had chance to cast your election vote by that time! The destination will be the Aspinall Arms at Mitton (BB7 9PQ) which should take around 45 minutes via the route attached. If you would like to eat, please let me know so I can give them an indication of numbers. If you will just be having a drink and a catch up, that's fine too as there are plenty of tables dotted around the bar area (to drink or eat) and outside if the weather is good. This is the link to the pub's website for you to have a look at menus etc. http://www.brunningandprice.co.uk/aspinallarms/homepage/
See you then
Tomorrow morning (Sunday 14th) is the Supercar Showtime event at The Dressers Arms, Wheelton, Nr Chorley PR6 8HD in aid of Derian House.

See you there
Next meeting this Thursday 11th May – meet at The Kingfisher at 7pm and then leave at 7.15 for a run out to Old Nell’s Tavern. The plan is just to have a drink and a catch up at Old Nell’s but feel free to grab something to eat there if you want. There is a quiz night every Thursday at 9pm if you would like to stay around for that too.
