134 – June 18 Concourse at Rouse Hill Town Centre

Sunday 24th duly dawned sunny on the Northside, but it was cold. Leaving 7.45am the sky was blue and the trip was the usual Sunday morning with quite a few MAMILS on the road. (ie Mature Age Men in Lycra)

There were still some autumnal tones around here and there. Tony commented that It was good driving without any roadworks on the M2 for a change! Exiting onto Old Windsor Road the new Rail Line is very visible in the landscape. It was quite a quick trip arriving around 8.30. Very late notice from management meant that not all our usual area was available due to an Ice Scating Rink on our lawn! Display and Concours cars arrived and parked with assistance from Bob Farrow. The orange gate was very admirably attended by Geraldine, Greg & Linda. Judges from the CMC Terry Bebbington & Kevin Brown were early and rearing to go. It was so cold in the shade everyone moved into any area where there was sun to greet, have a chat and a coffee to warm up with some Carrot Loaf to taste. There were 23 Buicks and 1 Lincoln Towncar on display with half of the Buicks being judged.. The ladies enjoyed some shopping and browsing with many sales on. Visitors were Dave Scrimgeour. After lunch it was time for the usual Group Photo in a different spot and then the announcement of the winners. A last coffee and off home around 3
