Humber Car Club Gathering at Jell's Park - 2013 Report 2.


Despite the threat of a hot day (36°) at least 19 car club members came to enjoy a relaxed picnic (we all decided it was too hot for a BBQ) and a chat together and welcome in the New Year.

It was extremely pleasant under the shady trees with soft music quietly adding to the relaxed atmosphere. The Humber Car Club invited the Singers, the Sunbeams and the Rootes Group Car clubs to join us at the park and it was great to meet and chat to the members who took up our invitation. It was also a perfect opportunity to get to know these members a little better in such an informal setting.

It was her first major outing and she didn't let us down so we were very happy chugging along to and from Jell's Park getting passed by everyone of course!

During the afternoon, David Adamson had prepared a challenging quiz for us all. It consisted of correctly interpreting 27 international pictorial road signs. They were very hard although the picture depicting "To watch out for drunks on the road" I think we all managed to guess. Some interesting answers were given for the uneven road warning sign that had us all laughing and some wild interpretations were offered for many of the others. In the end we had two winners, each with 6 right out of the 27. Well done to Trevor Leech and Ted O'Connor from the Singer Car Club.

It was a pity that there was virtually no breeze to alleviate the rising temperature during the afternoon. Unfortunately, it was even too hot to contemplate any of the outdoor games of Bocce or Kubbs that we had brought along and led to much chasing of the shade but it didn't prevent us from having a good time anyway.

Hopefully we will have many more combined club events this year as they are a wonderful opportunity to make new friends, swap car stories and talk about the eccentricities of these old English cars.
