Despite the shortness between January and February’s meetings members had been busy with a good few attending the Elscar Show. They reported some good buys and a generally busy show. A few good purchases were evident in the best bought competition category. These were made on the floor and in the auction.
The competition brought out some fabulous local beers. Whilst not blessed with pictorials in Dorset the rare regional named beers made an appearance.
In the wake of David Burtons book one of the competition categories was an onion/wine bottle. This brought out the Dorset Sealed and some dated wines really nice to see in real life. Some of them actually featured in this standard reference.
The pot lid category drew out some belters.
Thanks to Mike who put on a display of local Bournemouth Poole and Christchurch chemist items. Potlids and chemist items to die for and a very nice Bournemouth inhaler.
