Pub Night and Mini Run

Thursday 4th May 2017

It was a fine evening when 23 members met up at The Pirnhall Inn for the first mini run of 2017.

New members Scott, Janet and Steve joined us for the first time in their tidy yellow and red Mk1s respectively. It is great to see these cars as our area is now dominated by Mk3s and Mk4s.

Following a meal (thankfully the curry buffet did not run out this time) we met up in the car park for the usual tyre kicking session before getting roofs down for our run to Cambusbarron, Kippen, Fintry and ending at Kilsyth.
The sun was pretty low in the evening sky when heading west, and it made it difficult to see at times but that did not stop us from maintaining a good pace on quiet roads. The lovely twisting roads through the Carron Valley and Tac-ma-Doon road to Kilsyth were particularly suited to the MX-5 handling. The twilight views over the Forth Clyde valley at the top of the Tac-ma-Doon road were especially stunning as was the bright orange setting sun.

In no time we had reached the Boathouse Restaurant at Kilsyth for a final chat. It was quite chilly by then and a couple of ladies said they had suffered from car sickness on the twisty roads.
However everyone seemed to have enjoyed the run and I hope we see our new members on further runs in future.

Thanks all for a very pleasant evening.
