I would like to start by thanking our committee members and all the other helpers who assisted at the York racecourse Easter Meet, making it the huge success that it was. We raised over £400 for our youth section which was absolutely brilliant.
Not long to go now until the Region Meet, could members wanting to book for the Yorkshire Region Rally as a block booking do so a.s.a.p. We do need lots of volunteers for the Region Meet, and if any of you can come to help at the working party weekend your help would be very much appreciated; if you could, would you please indicate this on the form when booking.
We have not had the opportunity to discuss the Mardi Gras yet for the Region Meet and we do need to lead in the procession. My thoughts are that as the theme is “Heroes & Heroines” we should perhaps go with a world war two theme as this is something that would be fairly easy to organise and most of us already have costumes that could easily fit the bill. If anyone has any other ideas, please let us know. Hopefully, we have an action packed program with something for everyone at the region meet. I am hoping that we may have a visit from Yorkshire Air Ambulance although this is obviously dependent on it’s not being needed for an emergency call out.
Our Spring Bank holiday THS is in a different location this year, at an old favorite of ours – Ilkley Rugby Club, perfect for an easy stroll along the river bank or in to town. Numbers are limited for the bank holiday weekend so you do need to book. Later in the year, we have another new venue at Otley Sports Club, also an easy walk in to town; also this summer, weather permitting we will be having the charity duck race at Sunnybank Farm, Thorpe.
Enjoy your summer camping season.
