Stuart's Blog about Sptember

In last month's report I inadvertently overlooked Mike Chilton and Phyllis Dawson's success in winning the Pride of Ownership prize in the concours event at The Run To The Hills. Mike and Phyllis were up at 4.30 in the morning cleaning their car in readiness for the event. I think that for being up at that time in itself deserves a prize! Sadly, despite this success, my well informed source reports that the Roadster has moved on. Apparently it hasn't gone far and will no doubt be putting on a few miles with its new owner. 

My request for newsworthy items for inclusion in the monthly blog brought forth some interesting suggestions, not all repeatable. Nigel Pell, founding, and so far only, member of Motorhome Mog, let me know that Scotland is, like Wales, very wet but with the added bonus of midges. 

With the exception of the Halfway Noggin, which has been temporarily suspended, the Noggins have been well supported. It was good to see Steve Micallef and his son-in-law, Kirk, and Geoff King at the Usk Noggin. Geoff was due to pick up his new Morgan on the 29th September and we hope that he enjoys his new acquisition. 

STOP PRESS. Our West Wales correspondent, Jan, reports on the Brooklands Weekend:

Six Taffmogers set off on a sunny autumnal day for England on Friday morning, and with the obligatory toilet and coffee stop at Magor services some car owners returned to very wet mogs. It had rained whilst we'd been inside. After drying the cars we set off to cross the bridge with the roofs up. Another stop, this time at Richard Thorn and to meet up with John Bullen, the weekend's organiser. A warm welcome awaited us at the garage, and a big thank you must be given to Helen Thorn here who laid on tea/coffee and some wonderful scones baked by her mother.

Next it was on to the Bullen homestead where Margaret was waiting for us with a warm welcome and refreshments, accompanied by Neil and Helen who had arrived earlier. Then it was on to the hotel and meet up with Dave and Kay, who had made the journey via The Malvern motor home and caravan show.

The following day we set off on a run taking in the North and South Downs with a lunch stop at Devil's Dyke with a great view overlooking Brighton. The day just got better and better followed by an enjoyable evening.

Next morning and we were off to Brooklands. Only one car managed the hill climb, but went up three times whilst the others decided on a flight on Concorde to New York. Surprisingly no duty free were purchased and the big white bird never moved.

Back to the Bullen HQ for refreshment before our last meal together. Most of us then left for home whilst two couples stayed an extra night at the hotel. 

All our group would like to thank John and Margaret, our loyal Taffmogers ( Surrey Branch) for all their hard work in organising a brilliant weekend.

The Winter Weekend is looming and Haydn and Dianne are finalising the arrangements. Don't forget to send Haydn any funny, embarrassing or otherwise "amusing" photos for the Saturday slide show. On the subject of photos, the Photographic Competition has been re-introduced for Friday, so print off and bring along your Morgan related photos.
