Hi All

I trust you are well.

The Suffolk drive was as ever an enjoyable day, and unusually for us we wrong slotted following (or not as it happens!) Malcolm’s Tulip roadbook! The Saxon Village wasn’t huge but really showed the old Saxons knew how to build a house that stayed cool on a hot day! Plenty of photos on the facebook page link.

If you’ve ever done one of our Suffolk/Norfolk/Cambridge Drives, Malcolm who sets the routes has won this so many times!! Malcolm has been a regular competitor of Rhadamanthus Navigational Rallies in the past and he suggested to me that it might be worthwhile to see if any section members in AROC would be interested in entering. The regulations are already published on the West Suffolk Motor Club website and the entry list is open but, if you were interested
