Having carefully manoeuvred into the precise position for unloading, one member did not plan for the next step when preparing for the last Saturday party this year on 160917.

However, just like in his courting days, he managed to solve his problems by moving over into the passenger seat, but now it takes longer to get there!

The Dreweatts auction is coming up again in September. Catalogue Here.

If prices seem low - remember the commission and VAT is added, a substantial hike on the hammer price. Additionally, very few models have current boiler certification.
 

 

 

 

A photo taken at another club when contractors were working. A solution for a current cable problem perhaps?

This is a joke

The weather started good, then there was some arboreal fun and finally it really rained for the club run day on Tuesday 110717.

 

No sign of Barbie, but look out for Ken.

The owner hiding from the photographer could be a Mr. Loveland.

Ken has a touch of the electric about him, so maybe he should have been called Henry or Joules?
Could be female so Candela might be appropriate - or if from France, possibly Pascal?

Anyway, he's gone ohm now!
 


 

 

Good weather for the Daisy Chain Picnic - a fun time for everyone.
