Area news for August 2022

09 August 2022

Midland, Derwent Valley - Derwent Valley Area News - August 2022
What an eventful June. It all started a Derwent Valley contingent heading off to France to take part in the Laon Historique event. Roger and Julie, Paul and Kim plus Angie and me decided that a return to this event was long overdue and spent most of the winter months fettling our cars to ensure that would complete the 1500 mile journey without a hitch. I must admit that after fitting a new steering rack, a recon diff, new rear springs and shocks plus four new tyres the Stag's handling was transformed and was pleasurable to drive. On a side note, the tyre fitter was convinced that the old tyres were at least 27 years old!

The Laon Historique was brilliant as always. On the Saturday we travelled through quaint villages filled with happy, smiling and waving people on our way to Saint Quentin. The sun was shining and car temperatures were rising as we crawled through the traffic congested city to our cordoned off parking area. After lunch and a couple of hours enjoying the festival of the fool we headed back to Laon via different but just as enthralling route. The Sunday by contrast was rather wet but that did not stop the locals turning out in their hundreds to watch us drive around and around and around the closed off street circuit a little bit faster than the legal speed limit. The faster we went the more they cheered. On the Monday, we decided to extend the trip by a few days in the beautiful Belgium city of Bruges. No driving, just walking and beer.

In the middle of June was Derwent Valley's Peak Run. After a two-year absence, the fun filled event was just what the doctor ordered and by all accounts, we think everyone enjoyed themselves. The first TSSC club day was also held on that weekend and although a very wet day those that attended were most impressed with the museum. A small contingent from the Stag owners club also joined us at the car museum.

At our monthly meeting in July, we invaded Matlock Bath for a Treasure Hunt on a lovely summers evening. The hunters had to follow a trail of clues, which took them in to the Derwent Gardens, over the river, along Lovers Walk and then down into the town itself before finishing at the Fish Pond pub.

I was waiting to mark the sheets at the pub, and I must admit that I was most impressed with the high scores. Must make it harder in future. Bryan took the wooden spoon for his solo but valiant efforts and the winners were the Three Amigos who obviously took it far too seriously and scored maximum points.

We will be visiting a country pub for our meeting on 2nd August. Which one is still to be confirmed so check the TSSC website or our Facebook page for details. In September, we return MONDAY nights at our usual venue, Top Club in Stanley Common at the usual time.

Dates for your diary.

2nd August - monthly meeting, see above.
5th to 7th August - Leicester and Rutland camping weekend.
19th to 21st August - TSSC weekend at Stafford.

That's all for now. Colin » more ...
