Your Club Needs YOU!

 
 
With our AGM fast approaching we have just held our finally Committee Meeting of this year. This years Committee have done a fantastic job and it has been a thoroughly enjoyable year. A number of the current committee are more than happy to stand again for next year, if that is the wish of the
Members at our AGM. Sadly we will have to say goodbye to a few of our long standing committee members because either they or close family members have been suffering ill health these past few months, and they do not feel able to commit the time for the foreseeable future. The upside of all this is that it leaves an opening for new committee members to join our team. We need a Secretary, and as mentioned earlier in the magazine an Editor, it would also be great to see some new faces on the general committee. On Behalf of all involved I can assure you that you would be made very welcome and be greatly valued. Please if you feel you could manage one of these posts please submit and application in writing to Will Sprack. If you would like to know any more details please do give me a
call and I can explain.

It is Rally Weekend!



Saturday looks to be a good sunny day on the island so please come along to Havenstreet from 1 30pm to assemble for a run leaving at 2pm to go to Monkey World. Entry is free but we would ask for donations which we will give to Monkey World.

Then we return to Havenstreet for an informal evening with a B B Q and we will supply some naughty puds: B B Q meat not provided!

Sundays weather may look a bit damp but  often the island escapes  showers so we  hope the weather will be much better than forecast. We have lots to do on Sunday, with Shanklin Youth Town band, train rides, Haven Falconry, Train Story and the railway museum, good cafĂ© and bus rides on Southern Vectis's Old Girl 1939 Bristol K open top.
