Dorset RR February 2020
Our last monthly meeting of the year was a quiet affair with only 14 people attending but one person it was great to see was Nigel’s partner Jo who is still recovering from a very nasty car accident, despite wearing a neck brace she retains her sense of humour. It was an enjoyable couple of hours and considering the suspect weather we had 5 TVRs in the car park.
Our midmonth meet incorporated the Christmas get together at The Kings Head in Wimborne. We started with 19 people booked but due to sickness bugs, one business meeting and Jo not strong enough to last three hours, we only had 15 bodies to enjoy the Christmas fare and very nice it was too.
I made a short speech thanking John Hasell for his many years of service as our Dorset RO and outlining my thoughts on the upcoming year’s activities on drive outs and mid month meets. Ray Harris-Hawkins responded with very kind words for Pauline and myself and a lovely message from John and Anne in far off New Zealand who were having to endure sunshine and beach BBQs, we did feel very sorry for them as we enjoyed our wind, rain and floods. What a struggle retirement is!!!
Fish and Chip Run 27th December
Arriving early or so I thought, only to find Steve had arrived even earlier, which was just as well as it took the pair of us to figure out how to erect the Dorset TVR flag (my first attempt). We were very quickly joined by several more local members and 15 cars from our neighbours in Hampshire, after about three quarters of an hour marshalling cars it was cup of coffee time and as I left the car park we had 37 TVRs, 1 Bentley, 1 Lotus and 1 Mustang, what a great turn out on a very dismal day. Chatting to members over my coffee I was informed that 3 more TVRs had turned up so an even better turn out, the largest number of cars ever for the run.
The run itself. In the last few years we have put a run together to miss the accident black spots and to take in the lovely views over the Purbecks to Poole Harbour and out to sea,. This year, yet again, the views were non existent but having put the route out on emails and after handing out run sheets, I felt obliged to follow the route. We took the A31 to Bere Regis then the B road to Wool, turning sharp left after the railway crossing we had mist patches on our way towards Lulworth Camp, another left turn then right up and over the range road. It was very misty at the summit so no point in stopping at the viewpoint car park just follow the road down to Corfe Castle. We had stopped a couple of times to keep all the cars bunched up as much as possible, I need not have bothered as being the first car we were able to help keep a flock of sheep moving at walking pace so we all came together nicely. At the foot of the Castle we went on towards Studland, stopping at the viewpoint car park on that road allowing everyone to catch up again, onwards then a right turn back to Swanage, along the seafront to the long stay car park and run end. Everyone was complimentary about the run but I felt very guilty for having led everyone over some very filthy roads, a re-think for next year’s route.
The chippies did a very brisk trade and speaking for ourselves, very good and tasty.
So ends our TVR year. I would just like to wish all members and friends A Very Happy and Prosperous New Year and here’s hoping for a sunny and fun 2020.
