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.
This meet brings to an end our meets for 2010 and gives us time to reflect on all that has happened this year. Thank you to everyone for all your hard work and commitment and for making this another special year.
As we head into the New Year, it won’t be long until our AGM is once again upon us. Sadly for us, due to personal circumstances, Alan and Alison Carr are standing down as our Youth Leaders and Alison also as Catering Co-Ordinator. They will be missed as fellow committee members, having always given our
DA 100% in terms of commitment and hard work, but hopefully, they will continue to camp with us whenever possible. However, as we have to appoint for these positions before the AGM, Vince & Lesley O’Neill, who were our Assistant Youth Leaders have agreed to take over the positions as Youth
Also, Joyce Scott is leaving the committee after being with us for several years and will be missed by all. This leaves us with vacancies for PRO, Booking Officer, Assistant Youth Leaders and Catering Co-ordinator.
If anyone is interested in joining the committee and perhaps taking on the challenge of filling one of these positions, please come forward and have a word with any of us for more information.
A few weeks ago, at the Yorkshire Region Dinner Dance, it was a great honour to be present whilst Dr Michael Boryslawskyj our previous Chairman received a Certificate of Honour for all his service and commitment to our DA and to the Camping and Caravanning Club. Michael served as a committee member
for more years than many of us have actually camped for, so this honour was well deserved and not an easy thing to achieve. This was a very proud moment for Michael and his family and for our D.A.
Well, with no more news for the time being and coffee beckoning, I must end now. I hope you all have a fantastic week at Storthes Hall and enjoy all the activities that have been planned for us by Sue.
With best wishes
