Reminder that the regular monthly Monday runs continue this Monday evening. We gather at 7.30pm at the industrial estate opposite the Avon RI entrance.
Next Sunday morning we gather for our Spring Rally, starting from the ever splendid Russborough House on the N81 just south of Blessington. Our plan is to gather at 10am to meet, have a chat and maybe some refreshments in the tea rooms.
We plan to leave at 11am for a drive through Wicklow and Kildare for a lunch stop in Kildare Town where there are a number of options for lunch. The picnic option is to continue on to the afternoon stop at Lullymore Heritage & Discovery Park where facilities are available. Full details are in the members mailshot distributed a few weeks back.
Hope we get dry weather and can see as many members and cars as possible on Sunday morning.
The 2017 season kicks off in earnest with the first evening run on Monday April 10th and we gather at 7.30pm in the usual location, the industrial estate opposite Avon Ri entrance.
Time to dust off the car and take it out for a short spin which is the norm for the first run of the season. We will move off at 7.45pm to make best use of the daylight available. Hope see as many out as possible and if your not a member already please join us this evening as new members are welcome.
With everyone getting back to routines after the Christmas and New Year celebrations please note that the regular monthly meetings restart on Monday January 16th at 8.30pm at the West Wicklow Inn, Blessington.
Thereafter we will revert to the normal second Monday of each month for the meetings and evening runs. Full calendar details will be posted in advance of AGM in March.
Merry Christmas to all members and supporters from the committee and thank you for supporting all our events over the last year. We had an enjoyable year with success at the Terenure Show winning best Club Stand on what turned out to be one the few nice dry days we had on this years events.
Mince Pie Run Starts from St Kevin’s Hall Blessington on Tuesday December 27th at 11am so hopefully the weather will be kind and we can dust off the sweet wrappers and get the cars out for a spin.
See you then.
We are invited to take part in the Ballymore Eustace GAA Winter Fair at Punchestown Racecourse this Sunday November 20th.
So why not come along to enjoy the Horse Racing and maybe get some Christmas shopping done.
Assemble at 1.15 pm sharp at the main entrance road to Punchestown Racecourse (inside the gate). We will enter in convoy to the parking area which is to the right in front of the Pavilion at 1.30pm.
The monthly meetings restart Monday October 10th in the usual venue in Blessington at the West Wicklow Inn at 8.30pm.
These meetings provide a welcome chance to listen to fellow club members and guest speakers tell us about their restoration projects and trips to various Vintage Automotive runs and shows here and abroad. Many of which are well know events but others have turned out to be unknown gems that provide ideas for personal trips. So we look forward to welcoming all members.
