On Sunday June 18th 10 Clifton Club Petrolheads set off in 6 cars to catch the ferry to Rosslare. They enjoyed excellent weather throughout (well, except one morning!). Most of them covered about 1000 miles in total with The Lake Hotel, Killarney as their base. Over 4 days they visited The Waterford Crystal factory, The Copper Coast, The Ring of Kerry, The Dingle Peninsular, Muckross House and Gardens, Lismore Castle Gardens, Clonmel, The Flying Boat museum, The South Pole Inn, The English Market in Cork, and a boat ride on Killarney Lake. The beautiful scenery, good food and lovely Irish whiskey was enjoyed by all. Member, Christopher Hall composed and sang a witty song with verses about the drivers and their cars on their final night in Killarney, to entertain the group.
If you would like to be involved in future Petrolhead events, please contact the office.

Following six successful sessions, under the expert tutelage of Clifton Club member Roger Kerridge, the bridge skills within the Club are on the up!
A block of beginners/improvers bridge lessons – with supper – has been enjoyed over the past few weeks by a core group of Club members. The opportunity to start from scratch, learning all about the game and the skills and tactics involved, and getting to know each other better in the process, has been a great regular members event for the Club. Huge thanks are due to Roger for his time and patience!
We hope to offer further sessions in the future, if you are interested in being contacted in due course about these plans please email the office.

A small group of The Clifton Club's Petrolheads couldn't resist hopping on a flight to Dusseldorf this Spring to visit the world's biggest classic car show, Techno Classica Essen.
There was plenty of opportunity over the three day trip to visit the delightful Ruhr village of Kettwig and to acclimatise to the excellent local beer and food. With 14 halls and 2,500 cars to view, a mere five hours were spent admiring some of the finest classic cars to be seen anywhere and many were for sale. No Petrolheads made any purchases this time however, despite much temptation!

General knowledge of the motoring world was put to the test as 28 'quizzers' pitted their wits in the Petrolheads Quiz on the 22nd February. Gavin Hill's excellent 60 questions were wide ranging covering topics from cars in films, production, the highway code and famous motoring quotes. No team sat back and put on their cruise control as a great competitive spirit ensued and the final scores across the board were very respectable. The three highest teams all took home prizes and congratulations go to the winning team 'Williams' lead by Neville Hall. Pictures of the event are available to view in our Online Gallery.
