June 2019 Newsletter

Here we are in June, not sure where the last month went, all a bit of a blurr, must have been enjoying myself but the trouble is as you get older you forget what you did yesterday let alone last month, look on the bright side, if you’ve forgotten it then it doesn’t matter if you do it again.

The Reg’s are out for the Motor Traders Trial on the 7th of July at Waterloo Farm, North Petherwin, by kind permission of John Werring. These can be downloaded from the website. In the past we have had cracking weather for this event so bring the sun tan lotion, yes I realise that if it rains I will probably get the blame.

This coming Saturday the 8th we are planning to run an afternoon Sporting Trial at Ashleigh, Lifton, if you have a bit of free time on your hands and able to marshal it would be very much appreciated.

The 11th of August is the date set for the Testing Production Trial at Cannaframe, this usually caters for cars and bikes and is a very relaxed day out whilst competitive there is an emphasis on enjoying the event and socialising.

Our club secretary Andy Prosser is looking to organise some club outings.

Prescott, British Hillclimb Championship, 8th September, Cost approximately £30.00 per head

Morgan Car Factory, Factory tour, Date tba, costs approximately £40.00 per head. The costs will depend on the amount of people wanting to go as this affects the size of bus, the more that wish to go the cheaper it becomes. Please contact Andy on 07511 072724 or email probilt2005@yahoo.co.uk

A recent auction at Liskeard included some historical club items, namely three NCDMC annual awards dating back to 1935, 1938 and 1953. Fortunately Mike Wevill was able to attend the auction and bought the lot for £24.20, I can only assume that Silver is at a low scrap value as I thought they would have been worth more. Well done Mike, a little bit more of the club’s history preserved.

Things in the garage have been going at a bit of a snail’s pace but I have now rebuilt a spare 100E engine ready to drop into the Dellow, but on taking out the old engine I decided several things in the engine bay needed altering. These things always take longer than planned, hopefully the next couple of weeks will see it all up and running again, back to the running in, oh joy of joys.

I know it’s got nothing to do with motoring or motorsport but it was good to see the Cornwall Rugby team at Twickenham win the County championship Bill Beaumont Cup, unfortunately I was only there in spirit.

All for now but do please send in anything that might be of interest.
