Weekend Rally to Chiang Dao -
Saturday 24th & Sunday 25th November 2012

On Saturday morning, 25 members and friends and 12 classic cars assembled at our regular meeting place of Bistro1, NIM City Daily for coffees and breakfast.

At 11am we left in convoy, flags flying on all cars (well done Rex for selling these to one and all!), for our two hour journey to Chiang Dao.

We arrived in time for lunch at The Nest 2, where a delicious Thai menu had been prepared for us. After lunch members checked into their hotels for the night, and had time to relax during the afternoon over a massage or a drink.

Dinner was held in the Western restaurant at The Nest 1, and after gathering around the camp fire for pre-dinner drinks, an outstanding menu was enjoyed by all.

During dinner, unfortunately our plans were a little changed, as heavy rain prevented us from returning to the camp fire for more drinks and ghost stories .... so instead we let the staff all go home, and sat up in the restaurant chatting until the small hours.

We were very pleased to see a group of 5 members and friends from Bangkok join us, along with two classic cars, a Bentley Muslanne Turbo and a Cheverolet Corvette, both in outstanding condition. Thanks to all from Bangkok for joining us and for having your cars transported up north for the event.

The weekend was again voted a great success, and bookings are already being taken for our return in November 2013.
