Our 4th successive year at K.L.H, it was a dry start for those who arrived before the event, to help set up, h
elpers arrived 08.30-09.30 to set up the gazebos and the R26 flag . . .  Keen to get it all ready, to ensure we have a dry area in case the rains come as forecast..... Our 9th family day ran from 10.00 to 16.00....

On arrival each car handed over £10, this included entry to the grounds, gardens and concours area, also, at the gate, Kevin and Karl presented each car with a commemorative region 26 mug.

We were so pleased to have some 37 Porsche on display, and up to 12.30 those entering the concours keenly prepared their cars for judge Geoff and his inspection team.
Prior to the judging the heavens opened twice, before the sun, finally spoilt us with its rays.....  In some of the pictures you can see the extent of the rain on the cars, also see the regions members huddled together out of the rain. We must say a special thank you to the judging team, who carried on with their task in the rain.

During our time avoiding the rain, many of us shared in some regional banter, not to mention "fits of pleasure" as we tucked into Sharon's cake, it had Guards Red icing, of course....... 
Also using this opportunity to catch up with each other, and to get to know those PCGB members that have travelled from other regions to support our annual event.

It also gave Dave C the chance to tell us all about his lovely new "Porsche Ownership Experience", and to see Brett's mirrored eyes of envy!...
For those dreaming of a NEW PORSCHE, Porsche Centre Bournemouth were on hand with three of the current Porsche range on display, Nick P even got solicited into Judging, thanks Nick, apparently, Geoff can be very persuasive!!!!! Never . . . . . .

During the day members took time to visit the Stable Café, enjoining anything from breakfast rolls, lunch, to afternoon tea. Many shared, that they had enjoyed the grounds and garden's walks.
Some had paid the additional cost to take a look around the house. As most of our events, it is a family event, some of the children had "such fun" around the gardens, and also playing in a wooden Teepee that was erected next to our concours area.

As always, the day had raced past, and at 15.00, we all gathered round, for the concours awards, and our raffle, our charity raffle is for the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance, which we collect for on many occasions each year.
Groff and Tref prepared us all for the concours results, and Geoff introduced us to Paul Foreman,
from Bespoke4Business, who had kindly sponsored the Fav Car trophy, Paul made the presentations to the those awarded 1st, 2nd and 3rd in each class. (See results table below)

Then when the applause was over, it was time for the important bit, our charity raffle, P.C.B and members had donated prizes, from a official Porsche colouring book, to un-official hi-octane bottles of wine!!  We are pleased to share that we raised £170.00 for the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance.

At 4pm, those who had a distance to travel home departed, others took the opportunity to enjoy the grounds some more, or have another piece of cake in the cafe. Those R26 members left, set to dissemble the shelter's and flag pole, then headed on mass for a relax in the cafe before heading off home.
