Perseid Meteor Shower

General BanterPosted by Rob Baxter Tue, August 07, 2018 18:01:13
Not only is it the Practice Day-Team Trial Event this Sunday (12th August) it is also the peak of the Perseid Meteor Shower. The weather this weekend looks like it might be ideal for trialling but it could be too cloudy for meteor spotting. So, it might be worth having a look on Friday and/or Saturday nights if you are putting the cat out/on the late shift/borrowing lead from the church roof.
If you are interested there's a map and a bit of bumf if you click on the icon below.

Do forget to enter for Practice Day - much lower chance of getting arrested than lurking about at night.

Car show

General BanterPosted by Andy McHardy Wed, July 18, 2018 21:38:41
Hi everyone,
The Cumbria Classic Weekend Motor show is taking place on the 18th & 19th of August 2018 at Dalemain House, between Penrith & Pooley Bridge.

We were looking to get a Club stand together for the Sunday show.
If there is anyone interested please get in touch with me or Mark Milne.

We are missing the club banner can anybody shed any light on its whereabouts please.

It would be nice to get a few cars there, as its been a while since the NPTTC had a good representation at a car show.

Please let us know if you fancy it.

Andy Mc
