On 1st November 7 cars lined up in the car park of the Stones Cross Garden Centre before departing for the Run.  Everyone assembled inside for coffee and to collect their printed instructions before they were ‘off’.

Early in the morning there were a few spits & spots on the windscreens but from about 9.30am the day was fine and sunny all the time the Run was in progress.

The Run took the participants through byways in East Sussex into Kent.  There were lovely views to see along the way and the leaves were beautiful to see.  The colour gold could be seen everywhere and a lovely carpet of gold leaves was on the roads for everyone to drive over.

The Run was about 62 miles in length and the passengers had to act as navigators, following tulip instructions, as well as finding answers to the many clues along the way.  There was no way anyone could be bored.

Everyone ended the Run at The Lamb Inn in Hooe where a lovely lunch could be ordered - a room had been kindly put to one side for our sole use.

No one got lost.  No one had an argument.  Everyone agreed that the Run was lovely and said they looked forward to the next one. 

This year we have had to hold the Runs on a Saturday instead of the usual Sunday.  Next year we will do a couple of Sunday Runs so that those members who could not attend the Saturday ones can be included on the Sunday ones.

Gordon did well on selecting such a lovely route for the Run.  After so many years of finding routes for the club runs he is now finding it more difficult to find new ones, lanes where no one has gone before;  but if anyone can, he can.
