Chair Page June 2018

Happy June members,

I hope you all had a fantastic May Day Bank Holiday, amazing weather eh!

So what’s has happened over the past month… S&SLRC held their interclub challenge at Baden Hall, Jim held a rally in Barnstable, MROC and Response had a stand at the Land Rover Gaydon Show and the 2018 National Rally was held at Stainby. As I write this the National Rally has not yet happened so more on this next month, however read all about the rest of the events and how they went in this month’s issue.

Thank you to everyone who supported these events.


Looking forward, I am going to put a date on the diary to go out and do some green lanes, this will be happening on the 17th June, fairly local to the Warwickshire area, this is just to get an idea of who is interested and to get the ball rolling as it has been such a long time since we did anything as a club, Looking much further ahead I will be looking at trips to the Peak District, Wales and possibly making a weekend of it should people be interested.

The 17th as mentioned will be kept locally as I am aware this is Father’s day so it shouldn’t be a long day. If you can make it please meet at 09:30, Karen’s Café car park, Studley, B80 7OD.

The next one I am looking at possibly the 2nd September, I appreciate this is close to the Major’s, I will confirm the date and area in next month’s issue and then again on the 21st October. Always happy to talk to people who have done green laning to help with any trips they have done. Please contact me.

These will be added to the calendar and advertised via the journal, Facebook and website when the dates are confirmed as well as all other events taking place.

Don’t forget July, August & September issue is joint so if you want to advertise anything you need to get in there

I will be at the Social evening at the Black Boy on the 2nd June having some food and drinks for those who are coming I will see you there.

To get more involved join in with the social evenings, it’s a chance to speak to people face to face and they are always good fun. Kelly has had some really good ideas suggested so keep your eyes on the social page. See Kelly’s social page to find out details and what’s coming up in the future.
