MotorMania – Grantown on Spey 
Sunday 2nd Sept


Well this is the first event which Frankie and I have missed this year.  The fact that we were on a three week holiday in North America barely makes up for it as we’ve heard that it was a great day out for the Hi-5s who were joined by members from both Grampian and Tayside.

Dave and Val took the responsibility of organising this event and even writing up the report which goes as follows:

With Frankie and Brian still on holiday, I thought I would send out a quick update to everyone regarding the recent Motormania Show and notes from the impromptu meeting that took place in the bar at the Grant Arms afterwards.

I believe that the show was a great success. Almost 500 vehicles were in Grantown, and there were several clubs represented including our own of course!  We were allocated an excellent `pitch` just off the High Street and we managed to get all the cars lined up (not sure about colour co-ordination though Brian).  We managed to get 11 cars into the show in the end including 3 cars from Grampian and Tayside areas. The show was very well attended and the organisation was excellent.  After the show finished at 4.00pm, Wendy led us off in convoy for a short drive before heading back into Grantown for our evening meal and `meeting` at the Grant Arms.

I will write up a more detailed account of the day’s activities including Muriel’s `excellent demonstration of Scottish Dancing” and Dougie’s demonstration of `How to sell a Mk 1 in a day`. I have attached a few pics to whet the appetite.

It sounds like you had a ball guys and the photos are excellent (only one problem Dave, you put the flag up back to front)!!  Frankie and I are looking forward to catching up with all the stories at our next pub meet on the 1st October.

Many thanks to all who joined in on this event and a special thanks to Dave and Val for taking on the organisation and making it such a success.

After an early start from Dundee we had a nice drive up to Grantown on Spey for this event which was in it\'s 15th year.
Although dull during the drive and the morning when we arrived the sun did come out as forecast so we could have a walk about all the displays of which there was many ! A fantastic day out.
Many thank to the Hi 5s for arranging a stand for the Mx5\'s
