Easter THS

I am aware that our Easter THS is not yet showing in Out and About. Partly my fault and partly due to the fact that the Club requires you to tell them about it before the year began!
We have however booked a meet at Woolsbridge Manor Farm, BH21 6RA from 2pm on the 14th April until 4pm on the 24th April.
The cost is £17.50 pun + £5 pun for electric hook up. The site will charge for day visitors.
This is a booking only meet and bookings are being taken by Paul & Linda our stewards on 07842342015, paulstudzinski@icloud.com . A £25 deposit is required per booking. We only have 20 pitches available and 1 of them is not electric. Please contact Paul to ensure you are one of the lucky 20!

2022 Annual General Meeting

Don’t forget our upcoming Annual General Meeting on 5th February at Our Lady of Peace Church Hall,  Earley starting at 1400 (please arrive by 1330). 

We need a minimum of 15 members to attend for the meeting to be quorate.  Please don’t forget to bring your current membership cards.

We still need a Social Secretary and Equipment Officer, so if you are keen to join the committee , please make sure to let us know, and get someone to nominate you on the day.

Happy 2022!

Firstly can I wish you all a very Happy and Healthy New Year. Hopefully we will be able to get out on site frequently in 2022 and catch up with each other.
 
I have confirmed with Pinewood Bar and Cafe that our SKITTLES EVENING on the 29th January is still taking place.   Clearly things could change but fingers crossed 🤞.
22 of you so far have confirmed that you would like to attend, some have paid and some have chosen their food.  If you haven’t done either please can you do so shortly.  If you have changed your mind about attending please also let me know shortly.
There is still space for others but please let me know by the 20th January.
 
Whilst I have your attention could you please let me know if you can steward this year and what meets you would like to volunteer for.  The list is here – I am particularly anxious about the first few meets, so please let me know.
Cheers all and hope to see you soon.

2022 fixtures – stewards needed.

Here are our fixtures for 2022. A couple not confirmed but Wallingford is despite what it might say. The meets were well attended this year so I have only made a couple of changes. Perhaps more in 2023? I need stewards however for any of these meets to take place. Please let me know which meets you would be prepared to steward. Full instructions will be given if you have not done it before and we do need new blood! Please email me at kevinheaver@yahoo.com or call me on 07974830123.

RCBDA Skittles Evening 29th January 2022

After Christmas we thought we would organise something for the adult members.  (I won’t say grown ups, as some of us still have a way to go!)
A Skittles Evening has been booked at Pinewood Cafe, Pinewood Leisure Centre, Old Wokingham Road, Wokingham, RG40 3AQ.
We have exclusive use of the skittle room but share the bar which is in an adjacent room. Plenty of parking but no camping.
Please arrive for 6.30pm, skittles will start at 7pm and food will be served at 8pm.
It will cost £16 per head and this will include skittles and a choice of the following:-
  • Meat Lasagne
  • Chicken Curry
  • Vegetarian Lasagne
Salad and French Bread is included
 
Numbers are limited to 40 so please get your booking in quickly.
Please confirm your booking to me, kevinheaver@yahoo.com with your choice of meal and pay the DA, account number 57394868, sort code 30 98 97 and show your surname followed by skittles as the reference.

Urgent – stewards needed

It is disappointing, but I have to ask for stewards please.

We need volunteers for the second week at Wellington Country Park and also the last five days at Abingdon. The good news is you will camp for free whilst you are stewarding and you will be giving something back to the DA that you clearly love? Without referees you can’t have football matches and without stewards you can’t have DA meets!
We might be able to muddle through at Welly but Abingdon will need to be cancelled or shortened without volunteers.
If you can help please drop me an email and let me know. You know it makes sense!
