Dear Members...........

8th - 10th September TYRO and RTVT Event Eaton Lodge

Event attendence is becoming increasingly sparce and as a result we are now in the position of LOSING money for every event we host. This is not good for the club. It will get to the point where some events may have to be cancelled and this is slightly unfair to those who DO want to participate.

We have several camping events throughout the year and various types of trials from showroom vehicle trials to the downright crazy CC trials (which is brilliant to watch!) which are attended in dwindling numbers..... we realise that it may be an early start and that standing in a field with no facilities might be off putting..... especially with children..... but they are really social and exciting events and we would certainly like to see more people come along and maybe partake or just watch.

Your Disco 4 or Range Rover Sport (etc) are very capable vehicles and we have just the test for them on Saturday 9th September. We PROMISE that no harm will come to any of the vehicles (we have a top of the range Evoque attend regularly). Its a gentle test of your driving ability and a chance to meet the rest of us! As for the RTVT.... if you have a Defender or Disco (or V6 Freelander..... suprisingly capable) then really get into what the vehicles can do. If not.... then it is a great watch! Thats on Sunday.

Bring a tent, motorhome or caravan and make a weekend of it or just come for one or both days.

This year we will be providing TOILETS on site (no bushes or trees involved this time!) and a MARQUEE with TEA AND COFFEE facilities. Donations for this provision will be appreciated. So.... the kids, spectators and campers are sorted. If it rains.... sorted too. Come along and see what your club does.... lets rephrase that.... come along and see what Land Rover people (me included.... a 90 with big wheels etc) do. Come along.... no entry fee to watch and only £20 to take part.

Camping/ Caravanning is a bargain £5 a night. No hook up but if power is low then someone will help out (ask anybody about my solar panels and they will roll their eyes...... I like to turn them every so often to face the sun... its a ritual that THEY seem to enjoy....:-)

Put it in your diary and give it a go. even if its just once a year it would be nice to see you.

Warren Griffiths on behalf of the club.
