Lakes tour wind down

Post by oggiesr » Sun May 13, 2012 10:41 pm

Well here goes, I am overwhelmed by the response on the web sites to last weekend’s Lakes Tour. The pictures and comments are all of a positive nature and I would just like to say thank you to you all for supporting the Lakes Tour again in 2012. Even though I have had no bad feedback from the weekend, looking back at it now I would have done some things differently but we can only learn from that and hopefully make it work even better next year.

It was just fantastic to see all the cars and vans out and about and it gives me the most pleasure of all to see you all using them as they were intended. I have not had a word with them at M/Sport as yet, but as far as I know they were all blown away again by this year’s visit of “proper” cars.

I hold my hands up to a right turn that should have been a left turn at a roundabout – sorry, I must try harder!!

Despite the frost (WTF) that was about it did make for a good day in the end and considering there were floods in most areas of the country we did fair very well with the weather for a change.

I would just like to thank the owners and traders for making the trip to the Lakes Tour some of which travelled a long way and took part in the displays at the Tour this year, not forgetting the traders that gave donations to the Charity Auction. Hopefully, now you have all seen what it’s all about, we can call on you for your support for future Lakes Tours.

The Charity Auction and raffle made in excess of £ 2,500 and I still have a Lakes Tour 2012 start banner to auction along with a few more bits and pieces. When I get them sorted out I will put them up on the BB.

I did however lose money on the M/Sport Lakes Tour t-shirts again this year (the ones with the route on the back). If anybody would like one please get in touch with me - I have 25 left in all sizes, plus two one-off hoodies in M and L.
All the polo shirts were sold, along with the jackets but if anyone would still like a jacket I will be putting in an order at the end of this week for more jackets so if you would like one give me a shout.

If you have any suggestions on anything constructive that you would like to see at the Lakes Tour or changes to make the tour any better please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me or post in this thread.

Many thanks again for your support; without it the event would not happen.

Father of the tour.

One of the best Tours yet for me.I think the weather really made it but it was just about right in length and road choices.Great photo locations from Mr Scott.

Perhaps a treasure hunt next year? or more checkpoints so everyone does the complete Tour.Might be difficult to organise but could be a bit of fun.Other than that what else could be done to make the Lakes any better than it already is!

Thanks Steve for letting me attend once again with my van and I look forward to next year to the next one
I can honestly say it is one of the best organised and attended shows I attend during the year and as an old Ford car salesman (1975-1979) (1982-2000)
it was great seeing so many great examples of what I had the pleasure of selling if only I knew then what I know now
So once again thanks Steve and well done to you and the rest of your team for a fantastic weekend :thanks:
