As always, I hope that everyone is still well and coping during these strange times.

Restrictions hampering our daily life are still with us due to Covid-19 and as a result we haven’t had a monthly meeting at Bo’ness Motor Museum since the beginning of March.  I don’t know when this will change.  However, some of us had a virtual meeting online during July and while there weren’t as many members as we usually see at our regular meetings there were enough to catch up with what everyone had been getting up to during lockdown.

One of the things that came out of the above virtual meeting was the proposal to have a get together somewhere (in the open air and maintaining social distancing) and a short run, followed by lunch.  Thanks to the organisational skills of Brian Hutchison, this took place on Sunday 16th August.  Two 911s, 4 Boxsters, 3 Caymans and 2 Turbo 944s met at Sheriffhall Park and Ride just outside Edinburgh and wound their way along the coast to Archerfield House near North Berwick, where we stopped for some photographs.  From there we continued to St Abbs and stopped for a cup of tea at The Old School Café before heading inland to Duns and then over the moor to Haddington for lunch at the Tyneside Tavern.  Believe it or not this was only the second Lunch Run of 2020.
