Billís Evening Run - Willies Widdle Wander - 6th June
Report by Sheila Mason
We met at 6.30 pm at the Fox and Hounds car park, there were 13 cars
from YDCCC and 3 from Tees Valley Car Club, an excellent turn out
considering there were also 5 apologies. We also had an American guest
called Suzanne from Oregon. Mavis and Suzanne have been pen pals since
they were 15 and are lucky enough to meet up occasionally, one memorable
meeting was in America when Suzanne took Bill and Mavis to see Elvis.
Bill gave out the route much to our amusement when we saw the title "
WILLIES WIDDLE WANDER" after a quick catch up we left in convoy with
instructions to turn right out of the car park and then immediately
right, but many headed straight, although, they did return very quickly
and headed in the correct direction to Kirby Sigston. It was not long
before we were going through our first Ford after Thimbleby. Bill cannot
organise a run without the odd Ford! The weather improved as we were
travelling, and the sun actually appeared.
We then headed towards the infamous Caydale Mill, another Ford with
plenty of water in it! Into and through Boltby and part of the forest
and now homeward bound through Knayton and Borrowby. Some of the roads
were a single, bumpy, winding track with plenty of grass growing up the
centre. Bill always seems to take us through Caydale Mill from a
different direction, I'm sure this must be an illusion as surely there
can only be two possible entries to any Ford?
This years prize for the biggest bow wave goes to Steve, I think he got
second place last year!!
We all arrived back at The
Fox and Hounds by 8.20 and then sat down to a well-earned meal, most of
us were feeling rather hungry by this time. The Fox and Hounds, as
always, looked after us very well and a big thank you to Bill and Mavis
for once again organising an excellent run.
