    May
    Hi to you all, Sadly, April’s meet at the Rose & Crown, Hundon clashed with Easter Sunday and we had other plans, so couldn’t attend. Nonetheless, our spies tell us that some of you managed to get there. We were in the East Midlands barbequing and drinking beer in the gorgeous weather (should have taken the Cobra!). At the end of the month, Steve drove the Dax to the A S Motorsports Open Day, hosted by Andy Soar. It was also the annual ‘Drive It’ day organised by the Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs. Steve saw plenty of classics tootling up and down the A140, Pontiacs, Citroen DSs, MGs etc. Many people decided to brave the decidedly dodgy weather and have a rumble around the countryside in their pride and joy. The early blue(ish) sky soon gave way to dark clouds and Steve just managed to get under cover at ASM before the heavens opened. Fortunately, a welcome cup of coffee and a burger fresh off the barbeque was waiting to revive and refresh. As well as a fine turnout of completed customer ASM cars, there was a good display of other classics; as well as a well-presented workshop to investigate. Proceeds from food and drink sales are for EACH, the East Anglian Children’s Hospice and were in the region of £400 this year. Thanks to all. In other news, our big black Dax passed the MOT last week and now is being readied for the annual visit to the Le Mans 24 Hours. Talk is now focusing around how many Adnams mini kegs will fit in the boot and how much home cured bacon to prepare! Will they actually watch any racing? May’s first Bank Holiday weekend always marks the National Kit Car Show at Stoneleigh. We haven’t been for a few years and, in any case, had a pile of garden related jobs lined up. Did anyone go this year? Is the show still as popular as in the 90’s / 00’s?
    And so, to this month’s meet on Sunday 19st May @ 12:00. We’re off to East Suffolk this month and have received a recommendation from Mark Bright – The Royal George, Church Rd
    Barningham, Bury St Edmunds, IP31 1DD - https://whatpub.com/pubs/WSB/28/royal-george-barningham and 01359 221246.
    Enjoy!
    Don’t forget to phone and book if you intend to eat.
    We’ll continue to populate the ‘3rd Sunday’ calendar with interesting pubs to visit in our usual ‘On Tour’ format. If youhave a recommendation or a favourite venue, or know of any worthwhile events in 2019, please let us know. May 2019 - East Suffolk June 2019 - West Norfolk July 2019 - East Norfolk August 2019 – West Suffolk September 2019 - East Suffolk etc.
