Thank you James and Brother-in-Law, now those will be very much appreciated by the recipients, that's for sure.

Delta, keep your hands off them they are for the marshals.

As always a big thank you to Iain and all his helpers and also to all drivers who donate towards the BBQ and raffle. This is always greatly appreciated by all who attend.

See you all at the Classic.

It was won in a motor race, yes. By me, no. I was fettling rather than driving on that occasion..... Come to think of it, there is some I did actually win in the workshop. Does Champagne have a use by date?

I have named the draw 'The Orange and Black Draw' to distance it from any connection with the Classic. The list continues to grow, but late additions may still be brought along, Some will be used on Friday in the usual Delta Draw, and the bulk for the main draw run by Fay.

Total of the cash and items now comfortably exceeds £1000 so thanks to everyone who has helped.

Bauble.

Despite the inclement weather (it rained) 44 hardy souls of both genders (must be politically correct) tuned up for a feast of beef burgers and sausages well burnt by Colin (Master Chef) McKay, whose recipe is now on sale at all cheap book shops.

As always Delta had done a superb job (to be honest Mrs. Delta) with copious amounts of spiritual liquor and more (and better) burgers than McDonald's. available until closing time. After a long hard day at the coal face it is great to see so many of our friends enjoying a social evening and generally not being too rowdy.

A free prize draw enabled Morwenna to walk away a little better off than when she came and a number of other items were distributed thanks to the generosity of so many drivers and media who were pleased to get rid of some of the junk from the attic.

A simple quiz proved too hard for the drink befuddled brains of most attendees, however, clearly Morwenna is abstemious as she then scooped the prize for that as well. To be fair it was a team effort so they will have to take turns reading the Stirling Moss book they won.

Mike Bell was prominent in the cooking area although whether that was as assistant chef or merely as a consumer of burgers I could not establish.

A full report will no doubt appear in Autosport, Motor Sport and the Daily Telegraph, but a big hand to iain for his efforts, and next time you see him heading for a gravel bed ........................ remember who your friends are.

Bauble.

Yes, despite the damp it was a good evening! Thanks to all the Marshals that attended. The rain wasn't as bad as forecast, so not like 2 years ago!

Few clarifications- First, the BBQ chefs were young Tom Smith and almost young Colin McKay. The only reason I was hovering was to keep warm, and talk trucks with Colin!

Second, the local shopping was organised and carried out by Tilly & Tony. As usual they did a splendid job, utilising something called 'click and collect', whatever that is...

Bob showed me his quiz beforehand, and I couldn't get one answer, so well done anyone who scored any points!

Oh, and I remembered the champagne for Fay, but had to help consume it....
