I hope that everyone had a good time over the festive period. Now is the time to look forward to the rallying season ahead and I hope now that everybody has got their new brochure. As a centre we are one of the few that produce a paper brochure and we will be looking at this again this year. If people do want a PDF version please let Sarah know and she will point you in the right direction. The brochure has to be produced and yet again we have to thank Stuart Stevenson for all his work; this is Stuart's last time in putting it together for us and the Committee is looking for someone to take on this role either on- or off- committee - please speak to me or any member of the committee and we can tell you what it entails.
I would like to cover the rules that we have had to follow as far as GDPR the brochure is the best example of this and you will see that there are no addresses or home phone numbers in the brochure: this is was taken on guidance from the Caravan and Motorhome Club.
As it my third year as Chairman it is a tradition that I run a charity event which normally takes the form of a charity rally. I will be keeping the tradition going as I will be running an informal dinner auction as advertised in the rally book and I am looking for donations and seeing you there. The Dales Gathering will again be the main fund raiser for the centre charity - we have moved it this year as clashed with some of the other centre celebration rallies.
We are now starting to look at the rally programme for 2020 and would like potential marshals and assistants - please speak to David so we can try and stop the normal panic after the AGM!
I hope you are all looking forward to the season and if you see me on the rally field don’t hesitate to have a word good or bad. Myself and the committee thank you for your support.
