Event Reports
short reports of events, holidays and shows enjoyed
by our members in the past four months.

Our members are always out and about with their 'Sevens'

The main aim of CA7C is to encourage members to drive their 'Sevens' whenever possible, even throughout the winter months when, surprisingly, quite a few members do enjoy being out and about on the colder winter-time runs.  However, we do draw the line on the very wettest of days as there is no point driving in bad weather with the non-optional water entry around the ill-fitting windows and doors!   Mostly we are able to enjoy warm, sunny days with Cornwall's splendid inland and coastal scenery at its best whatever the season of the year.

These edited reports were written by members and are taken from our monthly magazine, Seven Focus.

A30 Retro Run - Sunday 12 September

The  A30 retro run was organised by the TR Register Cornwall, the entry fee was £30, of which £25 was in aid of McMillian Cancer Support.

 Remember the halcyon days of the A30? The endless delays, breakdowns, traffic jams, and the era with no by-pass at Blackwater, Bodmin, Bolventor, Camborne, Fivelanes, Fraddon, Hayle, Indian Queens, Mitchell, Lanivet, Launceston, Penzance, Plusha, Redruth, Summercourt, Tregadillett and Zelah. The participants reacquainted themselves with these places on the old coach road.

Three of our members, dressed in period style for the ocassion, met at Blackwater Lay-by at 7am for the run to the start at Strawberry Fields Garden Centre Restaurant, Lifton.  At signing in they collected an excellent book with clear, concise route instructions before setting off  between 10:00am and 11:00am.  The route foloowed, as far as possible, the old A30 from the County Boundary at Polson Bridge, near Launceston to Land’s End.

 

Lakeside Cafe, Heslton - Sunday 25 July

The owner of the Lakeside Cafe, Coronation Park, Helston invited CA7C to display a few Sevens.  A group met at Sainsbury's, Helston before driving down to the Park.  With others joining at the venue ten cars were on display for several hours.

The Cafe owner had spent much of the last18 months cancelling events, and was delightedd to have something positive occuring in the park.  The cars looked splendid and helped to generate a wonderful atmosphere as many people engaging with your members and saw so many happy smiles from young and old alike.
