Even with perfect planning, this year’s weather so far is doing its best to upset me! After the deluge at Ludlow that lasted all day I was expecting to have a very low turnout – But the Midshires Pcc members are a hardy bunch & arrived as promised. One car missing purely because it was marooned in its garage (safe & dry) Martin Monagham (owner) still came to support us.
Cars in the Park is a 2 day show, we only attend on the Sunday.
Saturday was a complete washout & Sunday morning started out the same…”Oh well” weather proofs to the ready! Get the stand organised & cars in place. A ‘Horse shoe’ arrangement with one car (Kallista) highlighted as a centre-piece to celebrate 25yrs of the model. Visitors to the show were understandably well down, but the organisers did a sterling job. By lunchtime (no kidding) we were bathed in sun! And that’s how it stayed.
Its such a shame when ½ the allocated club stands are empty, however except for a collapsing gazebo happy faces were evident on our stand. The field was a quagmire where ever you walked which also made it a little exciting on our departure (anyone for a 4x4 Panther?)
4 x Limas (2 blue/white & 2 red/black as book ends) & 5 x Kallistas on show.
2 adjacent area’s visiting members Andy Stobbie, Fraser Robertson made up the number by supporting us.
Thanks one & all.
