Christmas Lunch~ Sunday 14th Dec

Hi Everyone,

I thought the meal yesterday was the best we have had at the Ship, I hope you all enjoyed it.
It was nice to meet up with Nick and Susan for the first time and the 400SE sounds very loud!. Thanks again to all who donated prizes for the raffle.

Don’t forget there is a meeting this Wednesday at the Plough in Staining perhaps we can pin down some dates for events in 2015 in particular the boat trip on Windermere.

Heath sent me some photo’s of the visit and it looks a good place, you also seem to have been blessed with good weather. I got out of hospital on Friday evening but I am still stiff and sore so No way could I have made the trip. I hope to be more mobile by the time of the Xmas Lunch Davebrewery 2<a href=”https://tvrbbrewery

Lunch and tour of Hawkshead Brewery

The date has now been fixed for Saturday the 29th of November. I suggest we meet up at the Forton service station on the M6 at 11:45 am so we can be at the Beer Hall for lunch at about 12:30. This will give us 90 minutes to eat before the tour starts at 2:00pm. As well as serving normal bar meals and Sunday lunches the beer hall also serve up to 14 different tapas if you only want a light snack. The cost of the tour is £6.50 and includes either a pint or 2 halves at the end of the tour. The whole tour takes about 45 minutes and includes a short film. Staveley is about mid way between Kendal and Windermere. Nicola wants to go shopping but I’m sure the lure of some red wine and Tapas will change all thoughts of shopping,

Having been for my pr opp assessment I have been told I will be in hospital for approx 3 days so I wont be able to join you at the Brewery. I phoned the brewery this morning and booked for 12 to 14 people to go on the tour so they no your coming!

Confirmed as coming:- Kev & Michelle Berry, Heath & Nicola, Andy & Shirley Lynch

Fish & Chips supper & run through Illuminations

At the club meeting last night we decided on a fish and Chip supper followed by a run through the lights. The date is Thursday 6th November and we are going to meet up at the Cottage Fish and Chip shop which is at 31 Newhouse Road Blackpool FY4 4JH AT 8:00pm.
That should allow us to be ready to rumble through the lights at about 9:00. If it is busy we can always run from the North to the South.

All we need is some dry weather to get the hoods down!

There will be a most welcome visitor in a Porsche Cayman on Thursday. Don’t worry though he is a car nut through and through and has owned at least 3 TVR’S.

A possible cheaper alternative to “Go Pro” camera’s?

Stan Ratcliffe copied this to me this week

Hi David,
A few years ago the TVR club negotiated a discount on our products for members and today we launch A Christmas Shopping offer for TVR members,
Demonstrating the capabilities of the Digi-Cam. One of our customers unclipped his from their car, popped it onto a baseball cap, switched from ‘continuous loop driving record’ to normal HD video and used it to film a once-in-a-lifetime experience flying on-board an Avro Lancaster WW2 bomber (one of only two flying Lancasters that survive)

Not bad for a camera that TVR members can buy for just £79 during our Christmas Shopping Offer (ends 30th Nov) and it has a serious purpose of providing evidence in the event of an incident.
For a real bargain combine the camera with a CHIPnTRAC security kit for just £159

All the best
