March area news

Hi Folks. Well February may have been the hottest on record
but on Sunday the 10th for the Heart of England meet it was
very wet and cold, so we decided not to go, Paul and Joan
went but in their modern Mazda and reported there only being
4 or 5 classics attending.
Sunday 17th was our monthly Dalos Day Run this time
planned by Rikk & Jeanette, we started at the Corner House
Pub, Bulkington and
enjoyed an
excellent run which
took in a number of villages
around the eastern
side of Coventry
mainly in Warwickshire
before concluding at
the Bulls Head in
Brinklow for lunch. We were joined for the first time by John
and Sheila Harper in their very nice GT6 Convertible, there
were 12 of us in 6 cars
all of them Triumphs,
the food and service
was very good,
thanks Rikk &
Jeanette for another
great day out in great
cars and great company.
The following Sunday the 24th the weather was lovely and
sunny so we decided to jump in the "Smiffy Spitty" and go to
the Barn Restaurant near Willey for their meeting and what
a good turnout, approximately 50 vehicles were there, we
were joined by Dave Harris in his Spitfire and enjoyed a cou-
ple of hours in the hot sunshine having a natter and a noggin.
There is a meeting at the Barn Restaurant every 4th
Sunday of the month and during the summer they will be having
a few more, we have a list of the dates so we will email
you all a copy.
Our monthly meeting at the Bull & Butcher, Corley Moor on
Tuesday March the 5th was well attended considering it was
another wet and cold night, 12 of us enjoyed a meal in the
restaurant pre meeting and were then joined by another 7
members giving us a total of 19 for the meeting. The clocks
go forward before our next meeting on the 2nd of April so if
its a good night weather wise we should be in the Paddocks
with our cars.
The March Dalos Day Run on the 17th planned by ourselves
we will meet in the car park of The Phantom Coach,
Fletchamstead Highway (A45), Coventry at the later time of
1.30pm ready to leave at 1.45pm as we will not be dining
until 3.00pm. Must know numbers by Wednesday 13th.
Monies for the Darts/Skittles/Quiz night on the 20th was collected,
if anyone who was not at the meeting and would like
to join us for this excellent night please contact us before
Wednesday 13th so we can accommodate you. Any donations
for raffle greatly appreciated.
Sunday April 28th was pencilled in for our next Dalos Day
but after being informed by Mike Hadley of a Classic
Car / Rock and Roll event at the Oddhouse. Snarestone it
was decided to attend this event instead and have lunch
there, all classic car owners with their cars will receive a free
lunch, entertainment from the Ibstock Rock 'n' Roll Club
starts at 12.00pm.
Contact Andy on 07964077892,or email
andyhorrobin@aol.com if you want to attend. The Oddhouse,

Roger Smith informed us that the Kineton Classic Car meets
begin on Thursday April 4th at 6.00pm, this is a well attended
event which also includes a good representation of classic
motorbikes and there is normally a BBQ and cheap beer
in the clubhouse.
Phil bought a diff off Roger Jones for the "Smffy Spitty" and
Roger duly donated £10 of the price to club funds, thankyou
very much Roger.
That's all for now folks get those classic cars out and dusted
and join us at some of the events throughout this coming
