TaffMog - South Wales

February got off to a flying start with Denis and Liz’s combined mystery trip and daytime Noggin. Judging by the enthusiastic turnout it is a format that seems to work. The run started out at Duffryn Gardens, a National Trust property near Cowbridge, where we gathered for elevenses. It was encouraging to see so many turn out for this first run of the year, though Morgans were outnumbered by a motley collection of tintops. It was nice to see a number of people who we haven’t seen for some time. It was especially good to see Jeff Carnell, though unfortunately Pat was not well enough to come with him and Jeff was unable to come on the run with us. Following a pleasant run through the Vale of Glamorgan we ended up at the Grove Golf Club for lunch. Many thanks to Denis and Liz for making the arrangements, only let down by the heavy rain shower at the end (Didn’t your Aero come with a hood Denis?).

I spoke too soon when I said that the new catering arrangements at the Usk Noggin were working well! Unfortunately the new caterers had given notice due to reasons of health and this left us in the lurch. Fortunately stopgap arrangements were put in place to make sure we didn’t go hungry and hopefully things will have been sorted out in time for the March Noggin. In the meantime Roger has been hard at work with our Facebook page and our presence on the MSCC website. The only real news here is that someone has taken delivery of a blue Plus Six but, because of the weather, hasn’t really had much opportunity to get many miles under its wheels.

Jan, our West Wales correspondent reports that “driving to the noggin in the torrential rain seems to be the norm this winter. Down on numbers this month, but that was down to colds and flu. Emyr’s back on the road after two months off (doctors orders), but the hot news is Derek and Jackie are changing their well specced +4 for a shiny black roadster speed machine, with air con no less. We wish them many miles and smiles.

It’s strange, but our small little centre now has three black roadsters in it.

Hope the nice weather comes soon and no one in Taffmog has been hugely affected by the floods.”

Finally, a cautionary tale. Haydn had taken advantage of an unbeatable offer from a hotel in order to take Dianne away for a romantic break in Devon. All went well until, returning from a scenic run, they went into the lounge to find six other Taffmoggers who also found the offer irresistible! Check before you book.
