Events Programme for 2012

For help, see the key.
Start 2012 with a fine selection of classic cars. Meet on the green opposite The Royal Oak in Barrington and don't forget to wrap up warm! Gallery online
|Club Meeting - Noggin and Natter|
Please come along to the usual venue for a chat about the upcoming year.
|Club Meeting - Guest Speaker: Highways Agency Traffic Officers - The Truth|
Tonight's guest speaker is Graham Carver, a "Motorway Womble" from the Highways Agency. I'm sure he has many a tale to tell of carelessness on our busiest roads. Gallery online
|Club Meeting - Team Challenge|
On the night we will organise people into teams and hand out a 'tricky' construction challenge - you will have to design and build a bridge using everyday bits and pieces that will span 40cm and carry the weight of a Dinky Toy car. Teams will be given a budget and “building materials” will be purchased using this fund. Once the bridges are built, they will be tested and the winner determined. Gallery online
|Club Meeting - AGM|
Meet at 7.30pm for an 8pm sharp kick off. Come along and help decide your committee for 2012/2013, hear from our 2011/2012 nominated charity and much more. If you want to join the committee please get in touch beforehand. Free buffet on the night.
|Drive It Day|
Why not join us for a Sunday drive to Oxburgh Hall, nr Swaffham, Norfolk.
The idea is for you to make your own way there. Aim to get there just before noon. Why not join up with a few other members to make the journey and have an afternoon exploring the house and grounds. Entry is between £4 and £8 depending on whether it is house and garden or garden alone. Gallery online

Non-classics must use the main entrance and pay full price.
|Club Meeting - Dinky Toy Concours at The Golden Ball, Boxworth|
Sadly, our usual meeting place - The Conservatory - has ceased trading for the foreseeable future. We are going to try The Golden Ball in Boxworth. You can either meet us there at 8pm or you can meet us in Papworth for 7.30pm where John and Steve can give you directions or lead you over in a convoy. Please still bring your Dinky Toys!

|Club Meeting - Car Park Concours|
This club night will be held at a NEW VENUE - The Cambridge Golf and Conference Centre just off the A14 at the Hemingford Abbot's exit (J25).
