Roger gave an update on the arrangements to date. 45 entries received with most planning to do the Friday evening recce convoy. Practical arrangements for the convoy, covid19 requirements and forest issues are proving challenging. Eden Valley MC member’s support is particularly helpful and appreciated.
Stephen reported the Autotest at Old Side on the 19th of July format had gone very well with good reviews from competitors with no covid 19 issues.
6th Sept. Autotest at Dunmail – Stephen organising

Concern was expressed regarding the 2019 accounts. After discussion it was agreed Ian would contact Kerryl to offer help with a view to getting account details to Armstrong Watson to enable them to complete and finalise as required.
Post meeting note. Spoke to Kerryl, she has been away on holiday, and she said she plans to finalise the accounts and pass them on to Armstrong Watson by the end of August. I also asked if she could check if Old Side’s invoice had been paid.
Concern was expressed at the number of members who are willing to help organise events.
It is questionable if events can continue if current trends continue.
