Register Rally 2008

A grey day for the Standards gathered at the Garden Centre
The 2008 Standard Register weekend was held at the Holiday Inn at Sandy in Bedfordshire. More than 10 pre-
Saturday started bright, and after breakfast we started on the road run. But rain was in the air, and when we got to our elevenses venue, Milton Ernest garden centre, it was gloomy and wet. Most of the cars were open and hoods were duly raised. Later we meandered through gentle Bedfordshire and Northamptonshire countryside to Odell, where we enjoyed a pleasant buffet lunch.
The afternoon took us down more wet lanes to Thurleigh and the 306th Bombardment Group Museum. It was really wet here and we ran from the cars to the little brick building, which told the story of the people who lived through the war -
On the Sunday, which was dry and sunny, we visited the Shuttleworth Collection -
