There is no better sight than almost 400 Morgan’s glinting in the sunshine 
at Blenheim Palace. 
This the fourth bi-annual “All Morgans’ Day”  event arranged by the 
Roadster 100 Team and must rank as the “best yet”! 
Morgan’s from all parts started to arrive from 9.00am onwards – through 
to around 1.00 o’clock. 
The Great Court soon filled, then the grass areas either side and finally 
the central drive all the way down to the bridge. 
Rarely are Morgan’s of all three and four wheel varieties  seen 
together in such numbers.  
The oldest being a 1930 Three Wheeler and the youngest an Aero SS which 
left the Factory “last week”! 
A new “World Record” was set by the Roadster 100 Register as 23 R100’s 
appeared in their Amazon Green livery.  Never have 23 of these wonderful 
Centenary Roadsters been seen together before. 
Morgan drivers and passengers enjoyed all that Blenheim has to offer, 
intermingled with “car spotting”, picnics, photography, meeting friends 
and much more. 
We had a dozen exhibitors in the “Trade Park” all of whom reported 
brisk business – plus the Roadster 100 gazebo where our ladies were 
busy fundraising for “Combat Stress”  throughout the day. 
We were very pleased to welcome Steve Morris MD of The Morgan 
Motor Company who was with us for the whole day.  
Steve enjoyed this wonderful festival of “All Things Morgan” and 
kindly drew the tickets for some twenty raffle prizes  donated by 
so many in the Morgan network. 
At the time of writing, the total we shall be presenting to Combat Stress 
will be in excess of £9,000, and we shall confirm a final figure later. 
Our thanks to everyone for their generosity and support for this 
wonderful British military charity founded in 1919 and today caring 
for 6,000 men and women who suffer the mental ravages of war.

A nice line of some of the record meet of 23 Roadster 100's 

A Nice article to combine with a superb Front Cover taken by John Barry who 
acted as our Official Photographer for the day. Thank You John and for 
your dozens of excellent photos, too many to include in the magazine.

Sadly some of the other photos chosen were taken later in the day when cars 
had departed leaving those obvious gaps.
