The Inter Club Quiz is organised each year by the winners from the previous year. This year the 1020 team of Adrian & Rita Mullins, Les & Jackie Cherrett and Ursula & Pip Bonner were victorious with a score of 77 points to the runners up with a score of 66½ points. A vote of thanks to the team for stepping forward and a big WELL DONE for the result. Work now has to start for 1020 to organise the quiz for 2019.

53 members and guests joined the coach at Hamworthy Club for a 9.00 am start on our visit to the Brooklands Museum and Mercedes Benz World. After a 90 minute journey we arrived and after entering as a group split into individual or small groups to explore the site. The change made during the multi million pound re-development were very much in evidence and made the visitor experience very enjoyable. Some members, not having visited before were surprised at the steepness of the banking of the old track, now not looking its best with cracking and moss very much in evidence. The refurbishment of the old hanger (housing the "Loch Ness Wellington" once flown by Terry Mobley's father) and the addition of the new hanger enable more items to be displayed. The aircraft park and the London Bus Museum are also very much worth a visit, many members tried their hand at the high speed simulator, with Poppy Garvey attaining a very good time, beating many of the men, including her husband Alex and Terry Mobley, Poppy reached a speed of 220 mph and stayed on the track! All in the entire museum is an excellent day out. Many members took the short walk across the site to the Mercedes Benz World. A superb building on three floors exhibiting all current  model vehicles, a few older models and a superb piece by piece breakdown of an F1 car ,all 3250 pieces suspended by wires. Around the building they have placed a skid pan, s short high speed track and an off road experience course. Our party were all agreed that it was a day out well spent and our thanks go to Chris Adamson for organising it for us.

Our spring run coincided again with National Drive it Day, starting from the Hamworthy Club we made our way through 46 miles of glorious Dorset countryside ending up at the Sixpenny Brewery for a served Hog Roast. Around 40 cars took part in the run and 65 members enjoyed the hog roast which was prepared and served to us by Tony and Rita Field. The food was delicious and the beer produced by the brewery was tried and approved by members, many of whom are real ale lovers. Ursula and Pip Bonner liaised with the hog roast supplier and the brewery and deserve our thanks for their organisation. We also thank Dave Bailey and George Parrott who once again came up with an interesting route.

Around 60 members met at Sammy Millers Motorcycle Museum for a coffee start to our 2018 Winter Road Run. After collection of our route booklet we set off on a 42 mile tour of the New Forest. At one time passing along the coast, with views of the Isle of Wight and the Solent, on to Lepe and through Beaulieu. We continued, following the picturesque route, to our lunch stop at the Empress of Blandings at Copythorne. We have used this great pub for our lunch stop on previous occasions and have never been disappointed with the food, drinks or service. After lunch we made our own way home. We thank Dave Bailey and George Parrott for again finding an interesting route and organising the day for us. We now look forward to the Spring Road Run which coincides with National Drive it Day. Our lunch stop on that run will be at the Sixpenny Handley Brewery where we will have a served Hog Roast.

This was an unusual meeting falling as it did on New Year’s Day. Attendance was down on the numbers that we normally see but we understand that, many of our members no doubt feeling slightly jaded after celebrating the night before. However we had arranged a skittle evening and this went ahead. It gave us […]

Our Christmas lunch, again held at The Walhampton Arms, was very enjoyable. The weather was awful, raining and blowing a gale. The pub is situated on high ground and the wind was very evident. Having said that, many brave souls faced the weather and turned out. As usual, Natasha and Andy (mine hosts) looked after […]
