Sprite Club Mid -Week Meander Report for Wednesday 30 March 2022.

This was the first drive for 2022 and fourteen cars rolled up to enjoy the route. The weather was near perfect.. cool but kind, with no rain.  

The drive began promptly at 10am from the Blackwood Railway Station after instruction sheets were handed out. We then meandered in a southerly direction traversing roads that some had never been on!

We passed through Kangarilla, then stopped for morning tea at Mt Compass. The drive then headed off towards Victor Harbor and after a few kilometres further, we turned west, headed for Normanville. More than twenty people gathered for a sumptuous lunch at Links Lady Bay Resort. 

Sprites and Midgets plus various other makes of all ages certainly provided an eclectic cavalcade of cars for locals to peruse as we passed through various towns and countryside.

Thankfully, there were no dramas or problems with any of the cars and all performed well. Ridgetop views were a stand out for the passenger! No-one was left behind, lost or ‘bottomed out’ at the ford so Thanks again to ‘Tail end Charlie’, Pat Miller, for keeping us all together. 

A big Thank You also to Judy and Russell Schmarr for organising yet another fantastic drive. We look forward to the next midweek meander on 18 May!

Dear All British Day Supporter, 

Since All British Day has been cancelled, we are unable to physically distribute the programme as we do every year. This year, we have worked hard to compile the best programme, which contains stories and information that are too good not to be distributed to our supporters.  The Committee has decided to distribute the program digitally via our website by clicking here

Kind Regards, 
Jamie Sandford-Morgan

Sports Car Cruise – Wrap up

From Pat Miller…

A few pictures from our sports car cruise along the coast. A completely stunning turnout of mouthwatering cars. The largest number of cars we have ever had at any cruise. The weather could not have been better. There were a lot of people along much of the route enjoying the spectacle.

A huge thank you to all who were able to be there and make the event a success.
