Tea Run to The Spread Eagle November 2008

MG Bear's High Tea Review
'For a day that started a bit murky our spirits were soon lifted by a little bit of sun and the prospect of a nice little run with a bit of posh nosh at the end.' Starting out on the run
'Setting out from The Bull at Fishbourne as we always do we struck out east along the A27 and up the A29 for Amberley and Storrington, over the back of Thakeham and back toward Pulborough before cutting across for Midhurst.' Andy directing traffic
'The trip only punctuated it seems, by either a weak bladder in the lead car, or Mr. Harris’ insatiable desire to direct country traffic.' Waiting for our tea!
'As dusk settled we arrived at the Spread Eagle Hotel, ready for a fabulous spread of cucumber sandwiches, fresh scones and cakes, with lashings of cream and jam and hot tea.' Scones
'As a bear of typically uncontrollable hunger, it is not often that I am full to burst, but today I must say, it’s time for bigger trousers!' Empty plates
'Many thanks to Andy for organizing the route, and many, many thanks to Aussie Pete for filling up my tummy with yummy food.' Some of my bear friends

Arundel Gathering March 2008
On the 30th March 2008 we hosted a gathering at Arundel Castle.

Cars at Arundel Castle
We were pleased to have a 'guest appearance' from a beautiful Austin Healey (sorry a failure by the photographer) and a Frog-Eyed Sprite.
Owing to the previous wet conditions we were unable to park on the usual lower events field, but our visitors' MGBs, MGAs, Midgets, Fs, TFs, TDs, ZA, ZR and ZSs from all over the South of England including the Isle of Wight were adequately catered for on the roads and verges in the castle grounds.

Welcoming our guests
Fortunately the weather improved and the sun shone allowing us the freedom to enjoy all of the Castle grounds and gardens, and even at a small extra cost the Castle itself.
Thanks to our members for organising the parking display and welcoming all the visitors to the Castle.
