Wuilie Brown Memorial Crank Up

Good evening all,

In March last year Wuilie Brown from Dumfries passed away, he was a poplar and well known gentleman on the Rally field through out the country. Some of you will possibly know his name, and some may recognise him from the pic above, now you can put a face to the name.

All Wuilies engines were sold to collectors through out the country, it would be a nice tribute to Wuilie if some or all the engines could come together again.

The crank up will take place on the 22nd of March at the Dumfries Aviation Museum, timings to be confirmed as and when I get them.

There will be no entry fee but will be asked for a donation, there will also be a raffle where the proceeds being split between the Museum and the diabetes charity.

All are welcome to attend as an exhibiter or as a spectator.

Paul

There is no start time for this event, but turn up early to avoid disappointment.
The air museum will be open as well, that's worth a look around a lot of stuff in a small place.

Here is a link to the museum:-

Hoping to get there myself, it just depends on the wife's hospital appointments really.  Will know more next week hopefully. That day is also our Ruby wedding anniversary!

Just landed back home! We had a few days away afterwards, visited the Falkirk Wheel and a few other places, and then a few days more that we hadn't planned on as the missus lost the use of her legs for three days so we had to stay put in the caravan near Dumfries as she was unable to stand. Anyway it was a good turnout and I enjoyed it very much, worth the 220 mile journey! My Ruston performed OK, hopefully we will return next year health permitting.

Pete.
