Thanks Phil. & Andy. Yes, we had a super day. 86 tractors in total including the Mog. And probably 10 4x4s and three trailers full of folks. We had a brilliant stop at Gregynog Hall where we had a low fly-past by the Air Ambulance. It would have been able to land but it was on a shout and so just came in very low. Wasn't able to take any photos. there. Lots of members of the Public came to see the parade in front of the Hall and so I spent my time shoving the cash bucket under their noses. :wink: :wink: :wink:

Makes a change from the last two years when it has been cold wet and miserable for our Spring run.

Spent most of today clearing up, returning boilers, teapots, trestle tables, etc. to kind folks who lent them for the catering. The run didn't actually start at our place, it was a tea and bun stop. :lol: :lol: :lol: (I hired some loos and so I suppose it was a comfort stop as well) Mrs Scooby and other ladies had been cooking furiously beforehand but there was no food left after everyone had gone.

Forgot to mention that we also have a barbecue the night before just up the road when our friends from Wing, Chipping Campden, etc. were able to join us.

The event is well advertised in advance and so we get lots of folks lining the route.

Great fun - David.
