Over 20 people have confirmed to attend the clubs Christmas meal on 7 December remember there are only limited places available so if you donít want to miss out return your booking forms with your cheques asap!
No other business this month as everyone was keen to get their motors running for the treasure hunt which Mark had arranged.
The day was dry to start with, members went off at 5 minute intervals there was some narrow lanes and large puddles to maneuvre through and as it was remembrance Sunday Donís team got stuck behind the church parade.
First back in his V8 was Dave , no thanks to me for my map reading and we only missed 1 clue.
Last back was Spencer & Jackie who blamed lack of local knowledge.
First place was Nick, Kieran and Byron (We are sure it was all fair & above board !! )
We would like to thank Mark and his family for sorting the course out and spending 3 hours in Ironbridge waiting for us all to return, even though he didnít have time for his ice cream!
