A REMINDER OF HOW IT ALL STARTED - WE HAD OUR LOCKDOWN A WEEK BEFORE THE GOVERNMENT ACTED - BELOW IS OUR MESSAGE TO MEMBERS SENT OUT ON 15TH MARCH 2020.  

Hi All – With the current high profile of coronavirus in the news, a majority of the committee have reluctantly agreed that we ought to cancel this month’s meeting on Tuesday evening. I know that this may seem extreme to some of you and not in the "Wartime Spirit" of ‘Keep Calm and Carry on’ - but I feel that the risk of transmitting any incidence of the virus that may be present, on to vulnerable friends etc., although very small, the risk is not worth taking at this time.
I hope that this situation eases in the next few weeks so that we can all get back to normal and enjoy the spring and summer events in our MGs.
There are a number of items and events that you need to know about -
1.Noel is hoping that he will be able to continue with his arrangement of our first Sunday Social of the year – for Sunday April 5th at 2pm at The Sandpiper in Bickerstaff – contact Noel on 07748323766 if you would like to go  
2.Steve is organising the tickets for the Tatton Classic Show on Saturday and Sunday 6/7th June – this is always a very popular show , so tickets need to be ordered well in advance. Steve will be sending off the booking form very shortly – so if you haven’t booked already, please contact him ASAP with your car reg., model and year on 07725 685353
3.Sandy is busy collecting subscriptions , so if you haven’t paid yours yet – please have it ready the next time you attend a club meeting – hopefully on Tuesday April 21st .
4.Our club’s Drive it Day, celebrating St. George’s Day is scheduled for Sunday 26th April – and since this is an outdoor event, it is unlikely that it will be cancelled. Full details will be available shortly by email and on our Facebook page and website so please book this date for your diary. 

Many thanks for your understanding – and hope to see you all soon

Yours in Good Health ,
– cheers Cam

CANCELLATION OF  CLUB EVENTS DUE TO CORONAVIRUS 
Latest News.

 
Hi All, I hope you are all keeping well. 
Just an update on the show situation from Steve our Events
 co-ordinator.

Just confirmed is that the Northern National at Patley Bridge, Harrogate is cancelled and has been moved to 2021 .
 It is probable that the July and August shows are waiting to see what the government start up plans are before making a decision. Most of the rearranged shows are heading to September so we may have a packed month with some clashes .
 Steve reports that the  Tatton Park show has been moved from 6-7th June to 15-16th August . On a positive note - our application for the  show has been confirmed by the organisers and as yet no closing date for entry's has been set, so people can still enter. Let Steve know if you would like to apply for a ticket. So far we have 15 booked for Saturday and 19 for Sunday . Fingers crossed we can get the cars out soon.
 Stay Safe - stay home.
MEMBERSHIP SUBSCRIPTION
 EXTENSION 2020-2021

The committee have decided , as special Easter present, to have a membership subscription extension due to the Covid19 situation. 
There are 50 or so members who have paid their subs. so far ,  with 30 or so yet to officially become paid up members for 2020 - the extension will mean that those who have already paid for 2020 , will have their membership automatically extended to include 2021 as well. 
Those yet to pay for 2020, will be able to pay when the club meetings recommence later this year - those subscriptions, at current 2020 price, will therefore extend through to include 2021.
 Stay safe - stay home. All the best - Cam 
MAY SOCIAL WEEKEND AT THE FAT LAMB
 Steve, our events coordinator, has had to reorganise the May weekend social. 
This was to have been  at 
The Fat Lamb Hotel , 
Crossbank , Ravenstonedale , 
Kirkby Stephen   CA174LL.

It has now been re booked for   Wednesday and Thursday 
 23rd/24th September.

Steve has  got 5 rooms booked and the owner is organising a run route for us.

 If anyone fancies going and hasn't booked with Steve yet - let him know as there are a couple of extra rooms still available.

JUNE EVENTS

As you may have expected - 
This is now cancelled.

Club Meeting - Tuesday June 16th

Mid Summer Night Social
Saturday 20th June - 8pm
We are hoping to hold this social event but maintain our social distancing by staying in our cars  . So this will be just a chance to drive out for a short distance and at least see each other and perhaps be able to talk to each other (SHOUT!) from our car windows.
