MASC North West Area February 2018 Report

Valentines Day Run on 18th February2018

We had eighteen cars booked to go on our trip meeting up firstly at our club meeting venue at the Kilton Inn where we had arranged with them to serve us coffee and tea. Having exhausted the tea and coffee Pots we all got back into our cars and off we went to enjoy the next part of our day out!. Amazingly this was one of the few dry days in some time, we seemed to be having some luck with the weather for a change.
So off we set on the first leg of our run some 58 miles though some lovely roads, enjoying the sunshine but freezing temperatures . At this point I want to thank Karen and Mike Bennett for organizing our day out which was great and really interesting place the British Ironworks near Oswestry is definitely a place of interest to visit again. Also a thank you to Chris Lee who sorted out the route for the 1st part of the car run. Its always hard work to organise a days run, so Neil and I really do appreciate any offers to put together a route, it doesn’t have to be a long one!.

After about two hours on the road, we arrived at the gates of The British Ironworks, What a wonderful place, the outside was a full size King Kong, statues obviously made of metal, painted in various colours, Reindeer’s, Gorillas, Giraffes, and some beautiful cattle, how life like they all were too I managed to persuade Neil to buy me a wonderful metal owl painted in some vibrant colours! We’ve called him Malpas and he’s residing for the moment in the middle of our dining table, looking very GRAND !

Last part of our journey saw us driving into the Blue cap Restaurant car park to enjoy a nice
meal that we had pre booked. Two hours in the car in cold weather had many of us rushing speedily through the front doors to find the conveniences of the establishment. We soon all settled down and dinner was served, The meal itself was very nice , the staff were friendly and the food itself was hot and well presented . So for us { Neil and I } we had a wonderful day and we are now looking forward to our next trip out too!! We were disappointed that Bernie and Lynne and Val and Graham were not able to come with us on this run, due to illness. Our North West club is certainly being infected by either the Actual flu virus or something very similar, so we may just have to do this run again at some point as there is so much to see I’m sure most of us would like to visit again as we didn’t have time to see it all. Well the weather did hold up to it’s form of late and the rain started just as we left the Blue Cap for our drive home, but what a great day!.

Happy motoring to you all and get well wishes to any of our poorly members we missed you all very much on that trip.
This Valentines run was our first sortie out in our Classics, and we felt Mandy (our green Frog) deserved a big pat on her bonnet having covered 200 miles during the day and never missed a beat, Lets hope for Neil’s sanity she continues to behave so beautifully.
