2015 Evening Run - Pie and Pea Run

We held our third, and most successful Pie and Pea run on 3 June. The weather was kind to us and we had a great turn out of some 16 cars.

I was so busy making the arrangements; we only arrived back from France the day before the run, that I forgot to take any pictures of the evening!

We met in Applegarth car park at 7.00pm for a prompt start, the route took us up to Scotch Corner before returning to Patrick Brompton via Catterick Camp. It is difficult at the moment getting across the A1 with all the road works but it was a different route from previous years.

As an aside you may have noticed a Chieftain Tank on a plinth outside the Army Headquarters; a few years ago I drove that tank on the assault course. We were designing the new Cambrai Barracks Tank facilities and on completion of the project the army said that as a thank you they would get some tanks out for us to have a “fun” day. I still have the tank driving licence I got on the day!

Everyone completed the run with no problems and arrived in good time at the pub, as there were over 30 of us the pub opened the restraint so we could all be seated in comfort.

I trust everyone had a good evening.
