Hello Friends and Fellow Campers
I cannot believe we are already into May!! Time seems to be moving along very quickly and we have enjoyed some really good meets with HAD this season. It has been good to meet and welcome new members and visitors to our meets and we do hope to see them camping with us again.
We had our latest committee meeting this week and were very busy planning for future meets. We are proposing to hold a “Family Fun” event again at Pugneys water park in August, and also a Boules competition and sausage sizzle competition at Bolton Abbey in September.
We were informed by Headquarters that two members from our area had recently been awarded their badges for being members of the club for 50 years. We would like to offer our congratulations to Mr and Mrs T Sykes and Mrs C Smith for this achievement.
Discussion took place about social events following a concern raised by a member, following the Easter meet.
It was agreed by the Committee that for all future social events either in marquees or in a room/hall there must be no smoking at all inside, this to include the smoking of E Cigarettes. There must also be no drinks at any time on the dance floors. This decision has been taken to ensure the well being and enjoyment of all our members.
Our Booking Officer Mr John Inman is currently taking bookings for Ilkley for Spring Bank Holiday and also for the
DA block booking for the Yorkshire Region Meet at Wetherby. (Final date for the block booking is weekend of Hollingworth Lake – 8-10th May).The booking form is in the centre of the Yorkshire Region small site list booklets. Don’t forget to include your £5 discount voucher if you went to last years region meet. John can be contacted by e mail at, firstname.lastname@example.org. John has also put copies of the booking forms on to our web site to assist members wishing to book with us.
The theme for the Yorkshire Region Mardi Gras parade is “Holiday Destinations.
John Sheddon our sites officer still needs stewards for Kettlewell for 15th – 25th August and also for Pontefract racecourse for 11th-13th September.Stewarding is good fun and a good way to get to know people and our DA do appreciate your support and give the steward free camping for the meet when they steward for us.
If you are willing to offer your help please see John Sheddon or e mail him.
Hope to see you all soon.
