As always, the Mini received a lot of public attention, and a little bird tells me that someone was overheard discussing the entry of a Mini in the Masterclass at Concourse next weekend! As Oscar Wilde so rightly said, “there is only one thing worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about”. The club is strong.
The event is becoming more and more of a social event for car clubs, with many setting themselves up with tents, BBQ’s and tables to create a picnic event for members. I think we must have been one of the first clubs to do this, as our BBQ has been here every time I have been. Once again the MCCoA has set he standard for other clubs to follow and this year is no exception with our tent well used for a sit, chat and relax, the band being far enough away to provide a nice level of background music for the day. (NB: Coincidentally, as I typed this last sentence, I heard the BBQ fire up bring on the bangers!).
