M.C.C. Selected European Rallies Group (Member of F.I.C.M.)

Members 74th. Newsletter Issued 1st.October 2013.

Hello,

I have certainly returned to a very autumnal U.K. I hope that you have all had a good summer.

As I told you in my last newsletter our AGM at Moreton in Marsh has to be a bookable event because the Cricket Club Hall can only accommodate a maximum of 70 people.

However the number of members who have booked is very disappointing. It would be nice to see more of you there, especially new members who have joined in the last 15 months or so. Our AGM is a very social event, and it is a good opportunity for members who have not been on any European club rallies, to find out what they are like.

The Treasurer Nick Woodcraft is taking booking his phone number is 01206 738193.

May I also remind you that the annual membership renewal fee of £7. Is due, unless of course you have already paid Janet. In order to vote at the AGM you must be a paid up member of SERG. Also remember to bring your MCC membership card with you.

This year I am sending the minutes of last years AGM out to you with this newsletter, anyone receiving them by email and coming to the meeting, should print them off for reference. I am also attaching a copy of the balance sheet covering the period 1st.August 2012 to 31st.July 2013, together with the AGM weekend programme.

We will be having a Chinese raffle again this year, as it has proved so popular in the past. For this we ask each Motor home to provide a small gift, wrapped up in many sheets of paper to obscure its identity.

On the Friday evening we have our” faith supper” where we all bring a plate of food, sweet or savoury, and put it on the buffet table. We always achieve a magnificent spread. After this we will hold “Arthur’s Auction” so if any of you have any bits and pieces that you would like to donate to this or our raffle please bring them along.

We will also have our usual book stall, so again, bring along any books that you have finished with.

Could members who have been on rallies please send photographs to Barrie so that he can put them on our web gallery. It is nice for the members who have not been on these rallies to see what these events provide.
