Breakfast Run – February 2021

February 28 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Breakfast Run to Byethorne Park, Nairne

28th February 2021

By Steve Spong & John Roach

It was a perfect late summer’s day for taking the MGs for a run through the Hills, as witnessed by the many other classic British cars seen out doing likewise, (MGs, Triumphs, Healeys, Jags and Rollers!). It was also an opportunity for John Roach to do his first Club outing in his newly acquired “B”.

Unfortunately for David McNabb his “TD” failed to start due to a flat battery, and Trevor Praite was waiting parts for his “B”, hence both came along in their “Oriental MGs”, Don Walker bravely made the trip to Nairne as his test drive after fitting a new clutch thrust bearing in the “A”, luckily he had done a good job and no problems.

Byethorne Park is a venue that we have not been to for a few years and if you haven’t been it’s a very pleasant spot for a stop, being nicely sited around a small lake, and of course you can then wander Nairne itself.

There was a in fact clash of Club events with some going along to “The Bend”. This clash was due to our normal February Run having to be rescheduled due to Covid Restrictions causing the cancelation of our usual “Big Brekky” at Christies Beach Sailing Club. Hopefully we may be able to squeeze in a return there later in the year as things normalise further. Despite that, there was still a good turn out for our run to Nairne, and we all look forward to getting back to a more normal year of Breakfast Runs and Club events in general.

So, thanks to all who came, with a special thanks to Lyn Adams who, following Rex’s sad death last year, has now re-registered the “B” in her own name and came along with her friend Cherry, so welcome back, Lyn.

Also to be celebrated, was the wedding of Leigh & Kaye Richter who were married covidly in December! Our congratulations to both.
