View Full Version : Thornfalcon Classic Gathering

Our Next "First Sunday "Meet will be at the Classic Gathering organised by Thornfalcon Classics just off Jn 25 of the M5 on Sunday the 2nd September.

Its a big gathering of over 1000 cars and maybe the Bristol boys would like to "come on down?"

We are thinking of meeting up at Sainsbury car park just off the Jn 25 (Taunton) turn off - at about 10.30 and convoying in

Its near Mount Somerset Hotel Henlade off the A358 - TA3 5NB

Its free entry but gets crowded so they suggest we trollin about 11

They have a web site you can view the event

In the Meantime - Please do a Sun dance for Pentillie next weekend

Its a shame that the weather conspired against us for Pentillie - I have dropped a note to them expressing sympathy and seeing if we can negoitiate a deal on our stand fees - so watch this space

Weather permitting - we are going to the Thornfalcon Classic meet near Taunton (Henlade)next Sunday the 2nd - meeting first if you wish at Sainsbury car park just off junction 25

timings - they are going to put space aside for us and it starts at 11 so I suggest we meet at the Sainsbury Car park at 10.15 to 10.30? its only 10 minutes from there (you can look up their website under Thornfacon Classics)

Its free to get in and there are various food stalls and a beer tent

For those that wish - coffee will be on at my place from 9 am and we convoy up the back roads leaving at say 9.45? I am about 25 mins South

Tanks to Chris for co-ordinating our club attendance. Great to see you all again, had a great day out. Probably get down your neck of the woods again for the Exeter Kit Car Show.

Very disappointed that the club awning and jacuzzi were not in evidence. Danny and his MX5 gang will begin to think we are going a bit soft.

I told you Tim - Gazebo in North Petherwin and I aint digging yet another bloody pit for the sw club jacuzzi - we'll be getting a reputation

- it was enough that there was a pink smart car in attendance.
