I think we all would like to forget 2020 ever started; it would have been nice to spend the year in hibernation.

I joined the RSSOC in 1983 when I bought an SE6a. We had it for over 27 years, but after about 4 years of head gasket failures I fitted a Rover V8, which is what, in my opinion, the car should have been fitted with from the start.

Ian Boyle was the Noggin Secretary when I first attended and I made the mistake of going to the loo when a new Sec was voted in and I have been doing it since. Ian is still with us and having retired has just about got his GTC back on the road after many years of it sitting in his garden. He had a V8 SE5a when I joined.

Roger Napper has set up a two weekly Zoom meeting for the Noggin, so we keep in touch locally.

I have just ordered a Morgans year book to find out what is supposed to be happening in the north in 2021 and the NECPWA, whose events we attend every year, have yet to publish a list of what they would like or be able to do. It will be at the earliest January or February before we can think of any plans for the year, Covid-19 allowing of course.
