The Suncoast British Car Club was the host club this year for the 2nd Bartow Fun Run. Over 50 persons in 26 cars joined in on the fun rally of just over 70 miles to The Stanford Inn and Tea Room in Bartow, FL. We began with instructions for the drive to the inn on flip cards along with questions to be answered by hints given along the way. After a stop for very nice brunch at the Stanford Inn, we began part two of the fun rally for another 70 plus miles and ended at the historic Gamble Mansion in Ellenton, FL. We had refreshments and snacks in a beautiful shaded picnic area at the mansion. We presented some fun awards to the car with the most correct answers and we had a drawing for two couples to enjoy a night and breakfast at the Stanford Inn.
