Stewards Required!

Stewards are urgently required for the following meets planned:

Bakewell Club Site – July 6th to 8th

Cloverfields, Kniveton – July 13th to 16th

Darley Dale THS 2nd week – Aug 15th to 22nd

If you are interested in stewarding a Meet or Temporary Holiday Site and planning to attend one anyway, why don’t you volunteer to steward and get your sites fees paid by the club? If you steward 3 or more meets you’ll also get a free ticket to Rewind or Bonfire night.

It’s not a huge ask, the committee have done the hard work planning and leading activities, booking the meet and making sure everything is in place. We need your help to take money on arrival, direct to the facilities and show people where to pitch.

If you have any questions, or can volunteer, please contact Ted Walters on 01773 856101 or any other member of the committee.

Remember without stewards we don’t have meets!

Site List Update for 2018

A newer version of the sites list for 2018 has been created. Changes highlighted in Yellow. The Regional Meet (AGM) is on May 11th-13th 2018. Derbyshire DA has therefore cancelled Hollington End Farm (Thorpe) to avoid clashing with the Regional Meet (AGM).

Instead on May 18th-20th 2018, we have managed to secure Peak View Caravan Park near Wirksworth.
