NEXT CLUB NIGHT
17th December 2019
Just a quick note following on from our club meets this month.
Our club nights at The Alma in Copford have been a great success, attended by 22 people on the fist night, 19 in November. Our next Alma meet on the 17th December.
Just a side note on this, please do not run your cars for an excessive length of time outside, particularly if you are parked out the front. Fumes come in through the pubs front door and is not pleasant for anybody inside. Additionally, we need to consider the neighbours and locals regarding noise. Please be considerate.
pOur regular meeting at The Woolpack was also a very successful evening, with 14 attendees. Next meeting at the Woollie is on 26th November.
At both meeting we spoke about our post-Christmas meal and drinks. It is planned that this will take place in Bury Saint Edmunds, The venue is The Dog & Partridge. This has a more general menu to suit all.
Please contact either myself or Ian Jones. The date for this event is Saturday 1st February. Please let Ian or me know if you wish to attend, so we can get an idea of numbers for booking purposes.
Jumping forward to next summer (sorry, we do still have to endure winter though!!) our WoTY is going to be a trip to Wales, from the 12th to the 15th June 2020. Ian and Mandy have provisionally booked 10 rooms at the Tyn Y Cornel Hotel in Gwyndd. Please let us know if you would like to join us and whether you would like a twin or double room. (These are for paid up club members) please make you own arrangements if your a facebooker and want to join us!
Ian Jones is, again, organising the bi-annual trip to the Le Mans Classic next year, 1st – 6th July. Please contact Ian for more details, if you wish to join us. This is a camping weekend, and we may take part in some enthusiastic beer drinking……..probably!!
We will put together a calendar of events for next year as we get the details, but here are a couple of confirmed dates for your 2020 diaries.

As always, please give us your ideas and feedback on what you want us to do as a club, what you don’t want to do, or what we could do better. We are here to serve the region as best we can, but your input is invaluable.
As always, we encourage suggestions and feedback from all members, so please feel free to email at any time.
Next I’d like to point out again that our Facebook page is the normal first point of contact to the region, we will try to mirror where possible to email to stop people from missing out, but spur of the moment outing will be Facebook oriented due to logistics & data protection we now have to abide to…. Blar blar blar.
