Following recent announcements by Mr Drakeford, we will be restarting our club meetings at The Star on the Hill on Wednesday 12th May followed by regular meetings on the second Wednesday of each month. These will be held out of doors for the foreseeable future. Please observe appropriate government guidelines on social distancing, mask wearing etc. We will just have to hope for favourable weather conditions. We will also reintroduce Llandegfedd meets to suit our calendar.
Our two French excursions Fougeres Rally and Le Mans Classic are postponed until 2022.
25th April - Drive it Day - our ususal style of run is disallowed by Covid regs, so we have rearranged to 9th May.
9th May Club Run - into Brecon Beacons Choose Sunday 9th or Thursday 13th May. We're delighted to be able to start the season with a delayed Drive it Day run on Sunday 9th May. This is, of course, subject to any last minute COVID changes but all looks well at the moment. Due to the current situation, we are obliged to restrict numbers to 15 cars, so there will also be a second run on Thursday, 13th May, again restricted to 15 cars.
We will start from the Star, meeting at 10.00am for bacon rolls and tea/coffee at 10.15, planning to leave around 11.00am. The route will be a mix of roads, some of which will be familiar, and some not so (it's getting harder and harder to find totally new routes!). The distance is around 90 miles and should take about 3 hours. Along the way, there will be plenty of opportunity for sightseeing as well as a mid-run break. We'll end near Brecon with the opportunity for a picnic, so bring your own lunch and camping stove for cooking if you wish! First come first served for your choice of date - if there's room, you will be welcome to come on both runs, please state your first choice of date. To book your place(s), please email Mike Brown - firstname.lastname@example.org - and confirm your order for bacon rolls at the Star. We look forward to seeing you all again, fingers crossed for fine weather!
