Thanks Alan and John,
We had a superb "UK MCA Gathering" at noon on Saturday at The Newby Hall Rally whilst most other MCA members were down in Illinois, we just had to put on a little something to show willing and fly the MCA flag from this side of the pond, so Alan yes you got it about right, I was forward planning the lunch venue in the restaurant when you found my hat, unfortunately I did not get anywhere near the beer tent. The food was great and the strawberries and cream just put the "icing on the cake", even the additional cream was well received for our family strawberry tea in Ripon.
Here's to the next strawberry and cream gathering, which we hope is Paisley Ontario in August, all three of us will be there so that's the time to sample the fruit and cream from the other side of the pond and keep the tradition going
Hope the berry crops are looking good in Ontario this season????????
