Reminder for Central Meeting March 11th 2019 7.30pm at the Aviator Hotel  1 Wellingborough Rd, Sywell, Northampton NN6 0BN.

 

Just a short reminder we will be meeting at the Aviator Hotel Sywell. We can enjoy refreshments in situ but I urge members to order meals well before 7.30pm


We will be able to display/park in the area behind the Hotel entrance about 2/3 gates down on your left as you proceed from Northampton. As you enter please bear left to park on hard service. Not the gravel one. Please do not use the Main Hotel Car Park. As the forecast seems to suggest a warm decent evening we should be able to mix and talk among our cars.

 

Discussion Points

a) Forth Coming AGM May 13th 2019

What is the reason there is no Duxford event this year?

George applied in December 2018 and constantly reminded Duxford for confirmation. About 2 weeks ago he received an answer to say that there was no plans to hold a car show on the 5th May. As I understand it no firm reason was given.

Oh, that is disappointment for George as he always puts a lot of effort into organising it. Disappointing for those members who enjoy the event and for those who have never been, certainly a lost opportunity.

There is nothing the Club can do if the location does not wish to hold the event, but it seems rather strange that they would not want the revenue.
