Many thanks to all who came on our run today, especially to the 4 cars/ 7 members from Grampian.Thanks to our new member Gavin from Montrose who came on his first run today (hope you enjoyed it) nice to have met you too.
  Six Tay5liders were at Tesco's for the off and we met our son Scott en route taking total for the run up to 11 cars !! good turn out, biggest smile was on Alex's kisser out on his first run with his NOO sport tech in lovely black !! very nice too.
  Very good to see Alec (our youngest members at 81 years young !!) and John
Our trip took us via lots of quite "B" roads around the Angus countryside in beautifull sunshine, in and out of the shadows,lots of "Autumn leaves" falling from the trees with our passing !!
  All to soon we were at Strathcathro where we stopped for a bite to eat with a cuppa, Good blether had by all,comfort break too and then it was off again.
  A few of our Grampian members headed north and the rest headed south via (alomst) St Cyrus, Montrose,Lunan Bay and into Arbroath where we again stopped for some photo's and a natter,left,John,Alec and Stuart there and then 4 cars headed back to Dundee.
  All in all a very good day out with our friends , hope if weather is kind to maybe do it again next month.
  many thanks once again to all.

Thanks to Tom and Alex for arranging the weather. It was just magic going through the Angus countryside in the warm and golden autumn sunlight.

Good crack at the Stracathro stop. Started with around 6 tayslider cars and four grampian cars and another tayslider joined on the outskirts of Dundee.

Thanks again Tom and Alex

Another superb outing in very acceptable weather...not a bad record considering the summer we've had. As you say Eddie, good crack at Stracathro. Great to see some Grampian cousins join us for the run as well as John, Alec and also Gavin on his first trip. More of the same please...and yes Thomas, I'm still smiling,

Great day out today. Thanks to Tom and Alex for organising.  Weather excellent - just hope it\'s as good next Sunday when we head for Fochabers.  Many thanks to David the painter for feeding the dogs in our absence!!!

Splendid and saw many autumn leaves --good convoy control!!
Could organise another Angus one re railway history but probably best left to the spring now rather than another Angus run  soon---some discussion re insurance -SAGA IS GOOD FOR US £116-- fully comp husband/wife 5000mls per annum -worth a try if you are paying hundreds.

John, just got my latest insurance renewal for my MK3 MX5 from SAGA, been with them for the past 9 years with both cars, fully comp, never had a claim, full 60% protected NCB, 5000 miles per annum same as you...£486!!!....I have been with SAGA since we bought our first MX5....We are with them no longer!! I changed to Aviva, fully comp, 7000 miles per annum full 60% NCB and various other things thrown in £127....

Hi All. I'm an ex MX-5 owner, traded in my sunlight silver mk2.5 for a new Focus ST 4 years ago. I was out on the bicycle on Sunday morning (up the back of Wellbank on my way to Glamis/Alyth) and was passed by 10+ mk3 MX-5's most of which had the top down, which was good to see. Brought back memories, and I wish I still had mine... Just wanted to say, nice looking motors and a big thank-you to all for giving me plenty room when you overtook, much appreciated.

Couldn't have been us then Steve...we're not that considerate ;) By the way, the credit for yesterday was all Toms', I just turned up for the run.
