Welcome to our New Year Meet at Storthes Hall, Huddersfield.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy, healthy New Year.
As we head into the New Year, it won’t be long until our AGM is once again upon us. We do have several vacancies on the committee and always welcome anyone new coming forward to join us. At the moment we have vacancies for PRO, Catering Co-ordinator, Events Co-Ordinator and Assistant Sites Officer. If anyone is interested in joining the committee and perhaps taking on the challenge of filling one of these positions, please come forward, have a word with any of us for more information – we only have about eight meetings per year. In 2013, Huddersfield have taken on the challenge of running the Yorkshire Region Meet at Carlton Towers with the theme of Heroes and Heroines. It goes without saying, that much of our free time will be spent making this a really good meet, so it is important that people do volunteer to take on some of these committee positions such as Events and PRO.
The sub- committee is well in hand for organising the Region Meet and we have had many volunteers, but there is always room for more should any of you like to join in and help in any way.
Several of us recently attended the Yorkshire Region dinner dance at Carlton Towers. We had a lovely evening in a spectacular setting.
Our own dinner dance will soon be upon us (I have to write this in advance this time as Anne is swanning off on a cruise, not that I’m in the least bit jealous!); we are returning to our old favourite Durkar Roods. Geoff and Doreen Hopkin will celebrate their Golden Wedding Anniversary on the day of our dinner dance, so I would like to take this opportunity of wishing them well on behalf of all of us here at Huddersfield.
I hope you all enjoy our New Year Meet.
