2006 Standard Register Rally
Most of the participants in Cotton House Dining Room, Marlborough School
The Register Rally, for Standards built in and before 1930, was held in August, based at Milton Hill House in Oxfordshire. Nearly 20 cars and their owners and partners attended.
Friday was assembly day at the Hotel, some of the party availing themselves of the pool, whilst others sunned themselves on the Terrace. An evening meal in the Willow Room rounded off the day.
Saturday was the main Rally day. Everyone was given their route instructions and off we set on a 34 mile roadrun through deepest Oxfordshire, then across the Lambourne Downs to our destination at Marlborough. Much interest in the convoy as the cars passed through Marlborough's Market Square, with no casualties along the way -
Saturday night saw another evening meal, this time with our guests Chris and Vivienne Cunnington. Chris is General Manager of the TR Register. Lynda excelled by answering all but one of the quizz questions and won a box of chocolates as a prize ( Hey Len, there were two names on the entry sheet!) Never mind, I can eat them, as she doesn't much like chocolates -
Sunday was a more relaxed affair -
Altogether, a splendid weekend, ably organised by Len Barr. All the participants thank you Len!
