Lazy Day Gallery

The Wolfsburg Weedhuggers held their Lazy Day one day show on Sunday and, a few spots of rain aside, it was an excellent day. Held at the Black Horse pub near Great Missenden, there was plenty to see and do - there was even a separate quarantine area to keep the kids away from the cars, a most excellent idea.

The bar was selling cask cider and beers, the BBQ was doing a roaring trade and there was a quiz to fill in to keep the mind ticking and distract you from the rain.

Danny had power-parked Daphne right in front of the show HQ

Alex brought his out for a run.

Gemma's old Squareback was amongst the Type 3s

Meanwhile, in the car park...

Very new New Beetle


So, after the longest raffle draw in the world (well done to Josh for his haul of winnings) it was time for the trophy presentations.
Danny got Best Type 1

Best Type 2
and Best in Show

Best Watercooled

PolCo was busy
(ably managed by Matt & Julia)

Overall a marvelous success, something the Weedhuggers should be proud of - here's to next year.

Stonor Gallery

Stonor Park was in fine form this year, the sun shone and visitors were coming in up the drive throughout the day.

Lovely Saab 95 on air

John Daniels is getting more cringeworthy with every passing year.
At this rate Operation Yew Tree will be attending next time!
