Mendip’s Early Summer Frolics

A Summer’s  Evening at The New Inn – Wednesday June 21st

What better way to celebrate the longest day than to meet at this charming pub, overlooking Blagdon Lake on a beautiful hot and sunny evening!!! Well, forty four members thought it was worth it with a car park sporting twenty Morgans – not bad for a week day Noggin!

A beautiful evening.

 

Tinney Tribute Tour (TTT) June 11th

This adventurous outing was organised by Wessex in memory of Henry, who passed away in October 2016.

Henry, with Joy, was famous for his annual excursions and it was a lovely idea to keep up the tradition!

Thirty seven members met for coffee at the ‘Burrington Inn’, before making a choice of either a challenging route or an easy route, to the ‘Rodney Stoke Inn’ for a delicious lunch. Lunch finished, off to a private guided tour of the ‘Wookey Hole Caves. Obviously, it wouldn’t be a TTT outing without the inevitable quiz – this got us studying the museum artefacts and a test of the grey matter! To finish off the day, tea, and for some, cake, at the ‘Wookey Hole Inn’.

Many thanks to Neville and David, for arranging such an enjoyable day out.

Morgans waiting patiently!

 

Twenty Third Year Celebration of the ‘MSCC Mendip Centre’ – May 18th

 

A miraculously dry evening allowed many members to bring their Morgan’s to Mendip’s annual anniversary, this year celebrated at ‘Winford Manor’.  An excellent three course meal was, as per tradition, followed by ‘The Prizes’!

The most events attended in a Morgan – yet again won by Angela & Mike

The Longest distance driven in a Morgan in a single trip – watch this space, recipient absent!

Finally: The considered Faux Pas of the Mendip Year – ably won by Edward & his ‘Porker’ (more can be read in Doug’s Newsletter)!

The Photographic Competition results, presented by Doug can be found here.

Finally the evening was rounded off with one of Clive’s brain testing quizzes!

Mendip Photographic Competition 2017 Results

Disappointingly the photographic entries were down by 14%, although the quality of the entries were all of a very high standard. Only 15 different people entered which represents fewer than 20% of our membership – and almost half of those were committee members! Views on Flickr reached 150 against 200 last year and only 43% of the membership voted, as opposed to 55% last year which suggests there is less enthusiasm for this activity in our annual calendar.

 

Category A: A traditional line-up won by Nick’s photograph ‘Summer Evening by the Lake’

Category B: A single Morgan with a backdrop won by Natalie’s photograph ‘Cooling Down by the Lake’

Category C: A amusing or unusual composition featuring a Morgan won by Alan’s photograph ‘Still Won’t Fly’

 

A big thank you to everyone who submitted entries and who voted.

Last years winners can be be found here.
