The holiday season is upon us!
Just a quick update on events that are occurring before our next meeting on Thursday August the 8th!
This Thursday (July 18th) there will be a ‘lunchtime run’ which will launch at 11:00am from Dobbies, Holmston Roundabout, Ayr, KA6 5JJ in a slightly less spectacular fashion than Apollo 11 did almost 50 years ago to the day!
It will be an enjoyable jaunt across the Ayrshire countryside – the destination will be shared on departure from Dobbies but we promise you will use less fuel than the moonshot did.
There is a choice of destinations at the weekend – The club has been invited to attend a Family Fun Day at Viewfield Manor Holiday Park, Kilwinning, KA13 7RD this Saturday the 20th of July, between 12 and 4 pm. It’s short notice so there isn’t any booking required but If you want to go along and show off your classic, feel free to attend. The organisers would love to see you.
Sunday the 21st sees the club attend the Ayrshire Vintage Tractor and Machinery Show at Whitefordhill Agri-Centre (Livestock Auction Mart) Ayr, KA8 5JW.
If you have booked to display at this event then Brian will drop you an email with joining instructions – If you haven’t and would like to attend please let Brian know. You should be able to pay at the gate although there may not be space at the club ‘pitch’ (but you never know..)
Sunday the 28th of July is the Dumfries & Galloway Classic Wheels Club – Crichton Festival of Transport at D&G College, Bankhead Road, Dumfries, DG1 4FD which, again, is a club attended static event. Brian will contact everyone who has booked with joining instructions.
The following Saturday is the popular ‘Prestwick Promenade’ which always begins with a parade of Classic & Retro vehicles, Horses and all manners of entertainment from the Sainsbury’s car park, 125 Ayr Road, Prestwick, KA9 1TW at 11:30am to the Promenade where festivities will commence at 12:30 and continue till 5:00pm. No booking required for this – just make your way to the car park for around 10:30am!
There are various other events you may be interested in that the club are not attending officially which you can find either in your yearbook or by checking our Event Calendar on the website by clicking ‘HERE’
We hope to see you & your cars there!
