Portadown Meet 24th - 26th Feb 23

    Portadown Meet was hosted by the very capable Beverley and Robert Coulter and their co-hosts Helen and Richard Ellis, thank you.   The weather suited the venue, dry and sunny,  A few of our members went to Mullahead Ploughing Match, whilst a few others men and women watched the Ireland Ruby match with a few beers/Guinness to celebrate Irelands’ win.      Shoppers hit the town and others enjoyed a walk around the park and lake which is close by.    Sunday Coffee morning, we had wee buns, thank you. 

    29 vans attended this weekend among whom was new member William McKinstry. Congratulations to Joy and Robert Coalter on their new van, health to enjoy. 

    Irene Hewitt won the Quiz and Hugh Harvey won the number plate draw and we can’t forget our BIRTHDAY GIRL Joyce McCune who has now joined the other club, The 70’s club Happy birthday Joyce 🍷🍷 here’s to many more.   Check out pictures in Gallery Look forward to seeing you at our next rally which will be held in Larne.  

    Eleanor and Victor Footnote from Joe Little who attended: The Mullahead Ploughing Match, which had not been held since 2019, due to adverse weather and COVID 19, was held in perfect conditions on Saturday. As there was no tractor pulling competition or trade stands this year it did not attract the same level of interest from our members as in previous years.    Those members who did attend really enjoyed the spectacle, especially the teams of horses and the vintage tractors.
