organised by Central Scotland

Car Count : 22
[ show event report ]


Saturday 10.30 onwards.
Sunday 10.00 onwards.

Once again we will be representing Mx-5 Scotland at this yearly two day event.
Saturday will consist of the usual set up the stall, with a chance to peruse some of the traders and cars without the crowds, then we will partake in a Lunch/Run which will include the popular twister that is otherwise known as the Duke's Pass. If you would prefer you can take part in the Callander Classic Run, join all the other cars on their picnic run to Loch Tummel. 
Saturday night we will attend the annual Mx-5 Central Scotland BBQ. (please bring your own food & drink) Once again Richard & Eileen have kindly offered to host the BBQ at their house. 

Sunday is the busiest day of the two and very much a time to meet the public, view all the other exhibitors, take a helicopter trip or even bid for a classic at the auction.

Another wet Callander Classic - that's 3 our of the 4 I've been to. Not even the Gavin-esque super cool hat could keep me dry. We need a gazebo with sides!

You meen a marquee, a Gayzeebo would be too small or blow away!

Home and Dry - hehehe

Great weekend, hope all those that went enjoyed themselves despite the weather - thanks to Douglas for the planning and special thanks to Richard and Eileen for the barbie also the usual suspects for the entertainment

Thanks to everyone for turning out over the two days and helping with the GAYZEEBO.Sorry about the weather today, but at least we had it fine yesterday. We signed up 9 new members over the two days, which can't be bad.
A big big thanks to Richard and Eileen for their hospitality and your giant was excellent.
It was great to see Pauline and Gordon (Grouse) over the two days.

Great weekend despite the weather on sunday.

Great company, cars, barbeque, music, scalectrics, wellie shopping, ....etc. What more could you want.
Hope everyone is well and not suffering with a cold.

It was another great weekend despite the downpour!At least we were not in New Orleans,I reckon our gazebo would have taken off for sure,along with a few cars!!!Thanks to Douglas for organising the stand,gazebo etc.Also to Richard and Eileen for the usual great hospitality.How's the Chocolate cake?We can't be unlucky again next year but at least us girlies have our wellies!!!
Great to see Grouse and Pauline and hope he lets Pauline drive him at more runs in the future.
See you all in September

And yes it rained all day at Knockhill on Sunday too!  Wet down to the undies! (That is due to external water not internal!!!).  Again, many thanks Douglas for all the arranging and thanks to Eileen and whats-is-name for the loan of the BBQ - excellent.

Hi all, just picked this up from the other side of the Atlantic. Just wanted to say how pleased I am that Gordon (Grouse) and Pauline attended the Callander Classic. Sorry we could not make it this year.

30th Aug 2005 21:23 :: Richard & Eileen
Well that's the Marquee dried out and packed away on the trailer, just a 450 mile trip to return it. Thanks to James for his assistance

Just read the reports of the weekend at Callander - sounds like a great weekend again and nice to see Gordon and Pauline with the club again - sorry we missed out but had to make a rushed trip to NZ

Gordon and I had a great weekend - thanks to all of you for welcoming us back so warmly. A special thanks to Douglas for putting a picture of Gordons car in the programme - anyone silly enough to vist us this week has had it thrust under their nose.... Also to Richard and Eileen for organising the bbq and especially for my "pint of wine"!!! I really enjoyed driving the Mx5 and intend to come to as many meets as we can in the future. Once again a HUGE thank you. P.
