As our club night in April was on Easter Monday, we just had a casual evening get together which was very well attended, and it was good to have a chat.
In May we held our annual Pudding Competition, and there was a mouthwatering display, with Janet Carrison again winning the competition. Carl Gannon gave us a bit of a talk about the pitfalls of buying classic cars which was enlightening and as usual he made it most amusing.
At our June meeting one of our longest serving members will be giving us a bit of a talk about the history of the Kent Area 4 club, and showing us some of his photos. We are hoping members will also bring along their photos and share their stories.
In July we hold our All Jaguar Evening and this year we will be having a buffet meal. Prizes will be awarded for the best Jaguar over 30 years old, the best modern Jaguar, and the Ladies Choice.
Our August meeting will be our annual Fish & Chips and Games evening, with the gentlemen arrayed in their loudest shirts and the ladies with exotic hats or hair-dos.
BBQ: Early in July we will be at a member's home for a fun afternoon and BBQ.
Museum Visit: We are extremely fortunate to have been offered the chance of visiting a private museum dedicated to Mike Hawthorn in July. The Chairman of the National Jaguar Drivers' Club will also be present that day.
Please ensure you let the 'contact' named in the calendar know when attending our chosen shows, so we can ask the event organisation for sufficient space for our lovely cats. Let a member of the committee know if you need any help booking in to shows.
Please see our calendar for the events we are attending as a Club. (Events Calendar tab)
We have been lucky so far this year with the weather at car shows: Eastbourne was very busy and we had to attend on the Saturday as the Sunday was completely sold out. The stiff breeze from the sea kept the temperature down. We again had a lovely day at Leeds Castle for Motors by the Moat, and we were with two other Jaguar clubs so a fine array of Jaguars was displayed.
It was a lovely day when we arrived at Deal car show, but the storm clouds came in fast and we had to hastily pack away our chairs and picnics. Fortunately it did not last long and the sun blazed down for the rest of the day, again with a stiff breeze from the sea which prevented us having shade from umbrellas.
