Well, it's time to look back on my first full year as Regional Organiser and I have to say it has been lots of fun! We had a pretty full calendar and managed to get a good balance between regular club nights, evening runs, car shows and full-on road trips.
We also welcomed several new members to the region and it was great to see a few old friends returning to the Club. The weather was (mostly) kind this year and the Gods of motoring were good to us - no bumps or scrapes (and only a few minor reliability issues to deal with…)
North Cumbria and the Borders has always had a reputation as a ‘social’ region and I’m proud to say that we’re continuing the tradition; Club nights are a great mix of car talk and general catch up on each others latest news - finding out what we’ve all been up to at work and at play. Our TVR ‘family’ extends to our members’ partners, friends and relations; if you haven’t been to a club meeting or out on a run with us yet, please come along to any of our events - you’re guaranteed a warm welcome.
2018’s events ranged from indoor karting to a wonderful weekend up in Scotland that took in the Kintyre Peninsula amongst other delights. We also fielded ten cars at each of the two largest car shows in our area. The Mad Hatters and Cream Tea runs were huge fun, as were our other social runs that take place on club nights during the lighter months.
On behalf of all of the region’s members I’d like to thank everyone who got involved in organising an event this year. We all lead very busy lives so taking time out to set up something for others to enjoy is greatly appreciated.
Finally - We’re all looking forward to our Christmas Party at the Hundith Hill Hotel, it promises to be our biggest turnout for many years so Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from everyone up here in Cumbria and the Borders - the best place in the UK to own a TVR!
