awoke to frenzied txtin, nope, not a hot lunch date, but regional
weather updates, in and out, from all over Dorset, but rain and drizzle
seemed to be the order of the moment. So we all headed off to K.L.H in
varied levels of "moistness" (Chris's word). . . .
yet after a period the sun arrived . . . yippee . . . and stayed. By the
10.00 Entry time, the gazebos and PCGB flag were erect, and standing
proud on the front lawn. Porsche, Porsche and guess what arrived . . .
yes, more Porsche's. PGCB members travelled from Kent, Devon and many
other regional areas.
Well before the 12.30
preparation for concours judging deadline, many have enjoyed chat,
refreshments and of course looking around the grounds of K.L.H. Most
visitors to the event, got totally immersed in the warmness of the day,
looking over each others cars and finding out how R26 ticks .......
We wish to say a BIG thanks to all who helped get this day planned and
up to speed, and of course to those visitors who kindly spent a lot of
their free time judging the R26 cars.
Then the clock tick, tocked round to 15.00, time
for the raffle and event awards.
Dick and Dom, nope, sorry, Tref and Geoff struck up their R.O. double
act, starting by thanking all for attending and supporting the event.
Then Tref presented the concours awards while Geoff announced them,
(please see below for the results)
Then onto the raffle, anything from a BIG teddy, to a Porsche cap were
up for grabs, and as per raffle, Brett and Claire both won what they had
donated!!....... So many members and businesses donated, enabling us to
be able to raise £170.00 for the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance.
With almost two hours left before K.L.H closed,
there was still time for all to enjoy the lovely gardens and walks, plus
a chance to relax in the cafe.
During the family day, all ages and interests were catered for, with the
sound of Karl shouting, not by the car boyz...... to walks to the
children's play area. Members family looked in during the day, some
enjoyed very civil picnics, with bubbles and all . . . Also warm
welcomes to people who were at the house, and had walked over to see the
cars on display, proudly being buffed and shown by proud owners, it was
also GREAT . . to meet potential/almost signed up members, Mike and
Julie arrived in the GEN car park in their BMW, and once catching a
glimpse of us, whizzed home to collect and bring their 911 CS . . . .
what a catch that was by the region . . .
