More Information about the Swythamley meet

Please let Val know, as soon as possible, if you intend to come to the Jubilee meet at Swythamley.

To make things easier for the stewards, before coming to the site, we would be grateful if you could put your total site fees in an envelope marked with the amount, your name(s), club number(s), vehicle reg and number of nights you intend to stay. Then all you have to do is sign on arrival.

Unless we have a very dry April, it is likely that the area in the middle of the site will be boggy. If so, this area will be marked off, ‘please avoid’.

We are arranging a programme of quizzes and entertainments so bring your instruments, songs, stories, bad jokes and dancing shoes – and walking shoes if you intend to do the annual Wincle Brewery trail. We are not going off piste this time!!!! Lifts can be provided if necessary.

There will be Brian’s famous pasta for all on the first night and a ‘bring and share’ afternoon garden party for the Jubilee. Prizes for the best decorated cake and the best Jubilee Hat. Bacon and egg buns on Sunday morning.

Hope to see you there.
