South West Branch of the Contessa 26 Class Association Spring Meet 2007.
The Spring Meet was held on Saturday 31st March 2007 in the Church House Inn near Ashburton, Devon.
It could so easily have been a nightmare.... as the email from the new landlord reproduced here testifies.
"Hello, Mike Brett
I am Andrew Wright, new landlord at the Church House Inn, Holne. I happened upon your website www.contessa26.net while doing general research and am pleased - but a little surprised that you have the above event in your diary. The previous owners have not passed this on to us, as far as I can tell, so would you be good enough to give me a call to give me an update, please.
The number is 01364 631208? Thanks"
It was a great event in the end and those who attended were David Houlton, James and Lyn Roberts, Charles and Liz Glanville, Mike and Jane Brett, Geoff Weyman, Ed Hounsell and his wife, who much enjoyed the evening.
Apologies were received from: Kay de Jersey, Jo Mooring Aldridge, John and Belinda Owen, Mike and Diana Lindsey, Peter Court-Hampton, Ken Vir, Svi.
