Last night was the July meet of the Dubs on the Wolds club.
We set off from our house at around 6pm to meet Golf Girl at the B&Q car park so we could drive over to Driffield together. We left B&Q car park in “Betsy” the VW Beetle at around 6:30pm and headed for Driffield with Golf Girl following closely behind in her beautiful VW Golf “Dubby” – pictured here with the “Big Fat Tour 2011” in the back window. As well as being a really lovely Volkswagen Golf, Rachel aka Golf Girl has some great stickers on the car, it looks excellent.
We arrived at Crosshill Car Park in Driffield at around 7:05 pm and there were a couple of dubs there already. We waited for the rest to arrive while chatting and discussing our dubs and taking pictures.
You will notice from the pictures that there is something that doesn’t look quite like a VW – you would be right, Andrew one of the club members has owned many VWs in the past but currently has the Commer you see pictured. There are some lovely rides in this club, I feel very privileged to be part of it.
Once everyone was here we all headed in convoy to the Warton Arms Pub at Woodmansey, about a half hour drive from the car park in driffield.
We then arrived at the pub in Woodmansey and had another photo opportunity moment and then went inside to get a pint. We then sat outside for an hour chatting about dubs, and veedub events and other such things – of course it wasn’t all dub speak (just mostly!). We had a lovely evening just relaxing and chatting with some genuinely lovely people. We are now looking forward to the next meet!
