Roman’s Forum – Summer 2018 Edition

We had a couple of recent THS meets, at Ilkley & York which proved very popular, so we shall be running them again next year, although Ilkley will only be until the Thursday following the Bank Holiday, as the club has another engagement that weekend.Thanks to our stewards for ensuring they both went well.

With only a couple of meets left before the summer break it is timely to mention our forthcoming THS meets (both in Yorkshire!) at Kettlewell & Hinderwell and hope some of you make the effort to call and experience either of these sites, as they do have prime locations within our National Parks.

Kettlewell is running over the Bank Holiday weekend this time as well as taking in the week long Scarecrow Festival.
Hinderwell has some stunning coastal views and cliff top walks as well as being accessible to either Whitby or Saltburn. During our time there the annual Hinderwell Show will be held in the village and it also coincides with Regatta Week in Whitby.

At our last meeting we co-opted Neil & Debbie Little onto the committee. As you will be aware they both were Secretary & Chairman of Spen Valley DA before the merger and it seems fitting to have former Spen members helping & participating in the running of the new DA!

We also had some disturbing news that we could no longer use our traditional site at York Racecourse due to complaints from a resident on the former Terry’s factory site(not just about us, I may add!)

We have been to York to discuss our options and are pleased that we seem to have secured a new location in the Racecourse in the newly refurbished Clock Enclosure. This area is securely fenced with good access, entirely flat pitches, together with a good deal of hard standing! Water is available and potentially the use of toilets as well. I feel this move has great potential! I shall keep you informed on the details as they transpire as we should be utilising this area for our November shopping meet.

This edition should be out for the meet at Bamford, but unfortunately I cannot be there as I am undergoing some heart Surgery a couple of days before. Some of you will know I have been having suspected angina attacks for sometime and over the past 2 years had a series of tests that didn’t prove anything! The last one (CT scan) did…….so it looks like three stents before something more serious occurs! So it could mean no driving for up to a month…..just in time for Hinderwell and our holiday on the Isle of Wight!

After the break we shall be holding our 4 day “end of holiday meet” at Pugneys Water Park and we shall be providing a BBQ tea! ……… I hope to see you there, if not before!

Wherever you end up enjoy your Summer Holidays
