Judging by the queue of cars trying to get into the site at 11.30am when I arrived I think the day could be considered as huge success. There seemed to be hundreds of cars and motor cycles being exhibited and hundreds more in the visitors car park. ( I tried to find a 1960 - 62 Ford Capri - a model I owned in my younger years but the closest I could find was a couple of Ford Classics) The sun shone all the time I was there so all in all it seemed like a good day.
I managed to chat to quite a number of Rotarians as they were busily engaged in directing traffic around the site. I have no idea of the financial result of the event, but in terms of Rotary awareness it was difficult not to be impressed - and with the Inner Wheel out in force as well. I also saw Scouts helping out - so thanks to them.
I am not going to mention any particular Rotarians as it would be totally unfair. Everyone was doing a great job. Just to say, "What a great event - I look forward to next year's".
