We’ve taken our cars to various places around the country. Here is a list of meets and events that we have been to in the past.
Another successful event for UK Crossfires Club at Leeds Castle in Maidstone. Thirteen beautiful Crossfires came along from all parts of the country to enjoy the magnificent grounds of the castle. The sun shone brightly to add to the splendour of the day with many enjoying watching the water events on the moat, the falconry display and Geoff Hooker & Rik Richardson taking part in the super car run. This is the third time the club has attended and we are sure it won’t be the last.
Well what a day!
Event Report Blenheim Palace 29th July 2018
After all the wonderful sunny weather we have enjoyed at the previous meets the heavens opened up and it was wet... very wet.
So plans had to be changed on our parking arrangements as the grass was too wet by the North Gates so after a few discussions we parked in the East Courtyard which is most unusual for permission to be granted to be used for a car meet. It proved a great backdrop for the 14 cars that braved the weather from the original 32 plus 4 that we did not know were coming.
A new venue for the club and came highly recommended by local member John Gilbert.
The privately owned, non-profit-making exhibition provides local artisans the opportunity to exhibit their skills and craft in the many workshops on site. The vast array of sculptures around the venue is truly mind boggling! From small metal animals and ornaments to a massive Gorilla in a cage and a 10-foot-tall sculpture made entirely from knives repossessed by the Police as an example of this terrible crime.
It has been a long time since we visited this magnificent House and Gardens in Yorkshire.
As a club we try to arrange visits around the country and Yorkshire has been an area that we had been asked to include so it was disappointing that only 6 cars made the event, with not one Yorkshire member, on a lovely sunny day.
This was a second visit to the Cliffhanger Cafe with 17 cars attending on a beautiful sunny day with great views of the Isle of Wight and the Needles.
After meeting in the car park, we made our way to the Cafe where we had a good old chat and lunch in our own area in the conservatory. The staff were very attentive, and all went well.
