MGF & Modern MG`s Spring Run Report Thursday November 12th

Well it was a “Spring Run” and we all hoped it would be dry !

But of course that wasn`t the case at least we were all in closed cars. Rain it did ,the closer to Bridgewater  it did get heavier but of course we were in the hills .

 

A very good participation from our members even though we clashed with the normal Lunch run .

The Run started at the Crafers Hotel with about an hours drive south to stop for coffee at the Bakery Mclaren Flat

A few more cars joined the run at the Bakery and then we headed to Bridgewater for lunch .

The second section took approx an hour and we ran on some of the roads used in the Adelaide rally quite a spirited drive for some and a couple of cars did do a drive through Mount Barker ( by mistake ) but all did arrive at the Bridgewater Inn for lunch .

 

We had a couple of guests join us , they were Richard & Caroline Sutherland members of the Triumph club but they were driving a MG Midget .Interesting in finding out that the car once belonged to Jo Sheward, it was good to see it on the road again .

 

Must thank both Dick Manning and Haydn Reynolds for their efforts in producing another great drive and lunch . We always thank the drivers but we must thank Jeannie Reynolds also for doing  the navigating in the final planning  stages.
