Cars-in-the-park - Pietermaritzburg - Weekend 14 - 15 May 2016

Our visit to CIP Pietermaritzburg.
Our club met on Saturday morning at the new Wimpy outlet outside Vryheid, supported by 13 members and family.   We traveled in convoy stopping at Ladysmith for fuel and lunch and refreshments at Nottingham Hotel.  Trouble free trip.   Arrived at Ashburton Showgrounds to find the accommodation had been double booked.   Alfie to the rescue and accommodation resolved and a pleasant stay at the Road Lodge in Pmb - Thanks Alfie!   Supper at the clubhouse of Hennie Kritzinger was most enjoyable.   The following morning at the showgrounds the cars were all parked where we shared a stand with our colleagues, The Vryheid Old Wheels Club.
The support by the number of exhibitors and visitors was unbelievable, as was the food and refreshment stalls.  Top of the list!   One must extend congratulations to the Sunday Tribune - CIP Car Show.   Our thanks to Hennie Kritzinger for their hospitality of a braai on Sunday evening and ferrying our group to and from the Lodge.  We look forward to Hennie's support for our annual Car Show when we will reciprocate the hospitality.
Monday arrived and our group was on their way home.   A great weekend was enjoyed by all.
