Coventry May News

Hi Folks As usual the first trip out in March for the "Smiffy Spitty" was to the Heart of England meet at Bulkington on Sunday 10th.  The weather was a bit better than last month so there was a better turn out totalling 15 vehicles.
Sunday 17th was our Dalos Day Run planned by ourselves, after filling the "Smiffy Spitty" up with petrol ready for the run the heavens started to open with hailstones so we quickly parked it up and jumped into the XR3i Cabriolet as the roof is a lot more waterproof.  We all met at the Phantom Coach in Coventry by which time the sun had come out again, there were 12 of us in 6 cars for the run which took in Kenilworth, Leek Wooton, Beausale, Hasely Mill, Chadwick End Temple Balsall, Knowle and Eastcote before concluding at The Malt Shovel in Barston for lunch, due to the heavy showers we had encountered earlier in the day the lanes were wet and muddy so a nice clean up job for everyone when they got home.  The food and service was excellent although a little expensive and we also didn't like the service charge but still a great day out in great cars and great company.  Everyone seemed to enjoy the run.
Next was our annual Skittles / Darts/ Quiz Night with the Armstrong Siddelley Owners Club (ASOC) at the Queens Head at Bretford on Wednesday the 20th. Another really good night out with everyone entering the spirit of the event, the hot buffet was excellent and plenty of it as well.  We did a lot better than last year when we got whitewashed by ASOC apart from Steve Long being highest scorer at Skittles.  This year we won 5 categories with ASOC winning 2.
TSSC Team Harsh Height won the Darts
ASOC Team Piston Broke won the Skittles
ASOC Team Gerry Hat Tricks won the Quiz
TSSC Team What a Shower won the best caption for the photo
Craig was top scorer after a 4 way throw off on the Skittles and Phil was highest scorer at Darts.
The night raised £114 pound to be shared between both clubs, £57 for each club.
Thanks goes to Ann Smith for her organising the ASOC members, Dick Teasdale for his help on the Skittles, Alan and Hazel for the Quiz, Lyn & Sharon for running the raffle and everyone for their raffle prize donations. A thankyou went to Phil for the organising of the evening.
Sunday 24th was a nice day so it was off to The Barn Brewery meet, a good turnout of over 50 vehicles again.
After all the nice weather we had through out March, come our monthly meeting at the Bull & Butcher on Tuesday the 2nd of April and of course it was cold and wet so a little down in numbers for the meeting but still 14 in total with 11 having a meal pre meeting.
The meeting took it's normal disorganised jovial format in the restaurant.
Sunday 7th April Daffodil Sunday at Monks Kirby we will meet in the car park of the Denbigh Arms Monks Kirby at 10.00am to travel to the event in convoy.
Having received the  annual accounts for the TSSC we can see for the first time for a few years they have made a profit, this being £22,630. Well done COM the measures you have taken seem to have worked.
No Dalos Day Run this month, instead we are attending a Classic Car / Rock 'n' Roll at The Oddhouse, Snareston, near Ibstock on Sunday 28th.  Driver of each classic car is entitled to a free lunch so we have been in touch and booked a table for 2pm along with our partners of course (who have to be paid for) so if you want to join us for lunch let us know by Friday 12th April so we can book in enblock. We will meet in the rear car park of the Royal Redgate Pub on the A5 Nuneaton at 11.00am so we can be at the event  for 11.30am. Don't forget it is also drive it Day and the nearest Sunday to St Georges Day so dig out your England dress and regalia.
That's all for now folks looking forward to seeing you all at some of our events. 
Phil & Lyn
