Following a slow start and Mel and I thinking the award-winning pub we had chosen was not a good venue for a luncheon run, over 20 members joined us for lunch at the Black Horse. Unfortunately, John and Louis did not make it, a brake failure on their MG ZR meant them limping to a local garage for assistance, John has since told me the ZR has been repaired and he will be with us at the next Natter.
Brooke Midgley has kindly volunteered to plan our August run to the Wykeham Arms, he is sending me his thoughts on the route, which will be fine as long as he does not include his favourite and much travelled road around the Alps.
The first Tiger Natter luncheon run was in March this year, a beautiful early spring day brought out a good assortment of MGs and other interesting cars for a 30 mile drive to Bert’s at Brandesburton. The Black Horse at Little Weighton is our next venue, Mel and I have sorted a 50 mile route which goes west to Howden, courtesy of Richard, turns south to the river and back west past George’s.
The (my) MGA had developed a bit of a click in the steering department, after the run it was a clunk so investigation required, good news only a trackrod end so may as well change both. Simple job although they have been in place for at least 12 years, hmm two days, a heat gun, knee support and Mel helping me up, it and I are done.
