Lincolnshire Inaugural Meeting

As the brand new Secretary of the Lincolnshire 'chapter' of the Robin Hood Car Club my first task was to arrange a meet.  So I decided the best thing to do was a Sunday lunch outing.  And we went for a mid-location at a pub near Newark right next to the river Trent.   I also invited any other member who lived close to Lincolnshire.  As the day approached the weather suddenly turned glorious and on the day an incredible 30 people turned up (including 9 wives), driving 7 'Robin Hoods', a GBS 'Zero' and a couple of 'Sprites'.

Still couldn't get Ruth into the car so we arranged to car pool with a couple who live near and as it turned out we 'wife-swapped'.  I took his wife as a passenger while Ruth went with him in his 'normal' car.

Here are 5 of the 'Hoods' lined up, mine is the farthest one, just before the Range Rover.

This one was hiding behind the Range Rover

A new Great British Sportscars (GBS) 'Zero'

This beauty has been fitted with a 4 litre V8.   Apparently you can 'burn rubber' in 4th gear if you aren't careful.  Astonishing.

Us !!

And one of the Sprites.  A great favourite with quite a few of the Club members.

And everyone enjoying the company.

And discussing the important things in life.

A great time was had by all.   Now they are all asking what I am going to arrange next !!
