I hope that everybody has had a good Easter despite the weather. The committee had no no option but to cancel the rally at Kettlewell due to the poor ground conditions but thanks goes to Sarah and Jay for finding and organising Thirsk, only for that to be cancelled by the land owners as well. Speaking to a few people most seemed to find things to do. I hope that you are all looking forwards to the good weather we have had a taste already with that great week in April.
I would asked people that are thinking of running rallies in the next year to get in touch with David Bolland so he can start the task of putting together the programme for 2019. It would be fantastic if we could see some new Marshals and assistants this year and also new venues. As I have said in the past if those that have stepped back from running rallies just did one for the centre then the programme would be full.
Could members look out for potential recipients of the trophies. We are looking for the individual or group that has done something for the centre, also the children’s trophy for the individual or group that has contributed something positive to the centre.
October for some may seem a long way away just now but with the Summer holidays looming it will be here in no time. It is with regret that I will be standing down as Chairman in October. Due to other commitments I feel that something has to give. As we have no Vice Chairman I thought I would inform everyone now so that everyone is aware and hopefully someone can step forward and take on the role.
I hope you all have a great summer and look forward to seeing you all on the rally field.
