43 Castles in Argovia

Not a lot of people know that the canton of Aargau in Switzerland has no fewer than 43 castles and the Graber Freunde visited three of them over the weekend May 31-June 1 during their 2014 Treffen! A report on the goings-on can be found on the Swiss Tours page.

Dave Culshaw has been busy again Probing and Solving and some obscure connections with mountaineering and music appear on the PPS page.

12/50 owner Adrian Padfield has been clearing his shed “I’ve had a front spring wrapped in sacking with Alvis labels for 40+ years. A Register member was interested but it’s wider than a 12/50 spring: 45mm v. 38mm, so we think it’s for a post vintage 4 cylinder Alvis” If you can give this a good home make a comment below.

IAW 2014 has attracted so many entries that if you want your Alvis to be in the main display area you need to send in your entry form right away. There are (or were) 9 spaces left. But there is an Annexe Alvis Car Park so still send in your form so as not to miss the event of the year. More information: www.alvisevents.wordpress.com

Contrary to what is reported in Bulletin 547, Graham Keighley has not digitised the Car Records but has restored and collated the record cards and put them in Lever Arch files by Model for reference purposes. Digital copies of these cards will not be available to members.

One thought on “43 Castles in Argovia”

  1. Re bulletin 547 Yes indeed correct. Unhappily Correction was notified and did not get into the bulletin due to special problems this time which also meant proofing was barely possible .
    I was relieved and surprised to see it come out at all and on time Vic Round
