Just got back from a mammoth weekend of playing out in Meltham. A lot of people put a lot of effort in to organising the do and manning the shop etc., and as someone who contributed very little ahead of the 'do' I think it is only right I post a big thank you to them all. I would also like to thank all the people who brought tractors, making it a sight to see in the show field!

The chairman of the greenway Committee (who maintain the old test track) was almost in tears at the sight of 40 tractors parked at the 'round the pole test' site. Chris Maddison took us on a road run specifically designed to test the submarine suitability of David Brown tractors. We had visitors from the far corners of the world again, testament to the ever increasing band of DB fanatics!

On a personal note, I would like to thank 6-Pot Phil for taking my little lad on the road run today. The grin is still on Ben's face. I fear my weedy 4-pot may no longer be the little fella's idea of the holy grail of tractors..... Time to start saving up again!

Im not long home from the ferry after a great weekend in Meltham. A big thanks to the organisers for putting on such a great event. A special thanks to Madders, Andy and the guys for getting myself, Darwin and Joanne sorted out with tractors for the road run, we thoroughly enjoyed it even in the heavy rain on Saturday.
A great nite was had on Saturday night, thanks for the hospitality, hopefully Madders will be a bit more fluent in the Northern Irish lingo before our next visit. :)

Cheers, Darren.

On behalf of Finnish team its a pleasure to express a warm thank to the Club and organizers of the event. It was a pleasure to stay there and see all the tractors and discuss with the DB-fans.

Very good to see you chaps again! We're always thrilled when our overseas members make the trip such as yourselves and Martien and the guys from the Netherlands. It still seems incredible to me that our little tractor factory hidden away in a West Yorkshire valley bottom has inspired generations of enthusiasts around the world.
These events remind me why I stay on the committee every year!

Another excellent weekend at the DB club HQ for fun and play at the 880/990 5oth celebration do. Saturdays road run was what we may call a tadge damp here in Yorkshire but the Suday was a good dry day all round.,

Great to see so many members in attendance and an excellent turnout from our members from ovrseas.

One or two pictures from the event to wet the appetite so to speak.

Darwin and Joanne aboard the `Courting Couple` Love Bus special, Darren on the 885, Firthy and DB Babe on the larger version of the Love bus special, Jessica on fag break!! and a certain 6 POT owner came well prepared, front towing eye and no doubt a heavy duty chain held in the Van Vault tool box :lol:

Cheers

Andy
