It is that time of year again when we elect the Blackpool Regions officers. This past year I have neglected my duties as R.O. as on many occasions the club meetings have clashed with my Sprinting events and when they did not I felt committed to do things with Ann that were none car related.
Events coming up
BVPG car show ~ Italian Gardens ~ 28th
Harewood ~ 28th Sunday
Aintree ~ 3rd Saturday
Thursday 8th Sept pint and meal at the Swan with two necks at Pendleton

Following on from our last run out to “Old Nells” we are planning another to the Swan with two Necks at Pendleton near Clitheroe. It has been Camera pub of the year several times and voted Ribble valley pub of the year 2016. See below for details.
Suggest we meet up at the Tickled Trout at 6:45 for the run over to the pub. The post code for the pub in case any one wants to meet us there is BB7 1PT.
As last month’s evening run out and meal proved popular we decided to try again, this time to the Swan with two Necks at Pendleton in the Ribble Valley. The group started off from the Tickled Trout meeting place, and there were initially 12 people which eventually grew to 19 by the time we reached the Swan. We had a great meal and were there for over 3 hours!. These evenings are proving a great success
Sixteen of us went to Old Nell’s at Bilsborrow last night for a meal and run out. Those of us from the Blackpool area met up at the Shell garage near the M55. It was nice to see some new faces there including Paul Forrest, Rufus and his wife in their Green Chimeara and Don Hastey and his wife. Don had been at Heaths and decided to stay over for the meal. A quick blast up the motorway and we met up with Jim and Shiela Edwards and Mark Warburton who had gone straight to the pub.
Either the nights are drawing in or we talked a lot as it was dark when we left. I took the country route back home and realised just how useless the headlights are on my SEAC!
It was a great night out and it was suggested we should do something similar every month.
Seven TVRs attended The Show at the end of July followed by a run home thro the centre of Lytham, which caused a stir!. Many Thanks to Heath for leading the day.
