Big thanks to everyone who made the trek to Wales for our Seven Sisters off-road weekend, it was a blast and we hope to see you again next time!
Speaking of which – we’ve got dates for next year, put these in your diary:
Summer Sisters – 22nd-23rd June 2019
Seven Sisters – 28th-29th September 2019
Online bookings for Summer Sisters 2019 will open soon!
We’d also like to thank everyone for putting pennies in the charity tin for teas & coffees in aid of Hampshire & Isle Of Wight Air Ambulance, along with the donation from the entry fee we raised over £220 in a weekend so a big pat on the back to you all!
After a bit of a break over the summer hols we’ve got a busy October coming up!
The next club “pub” social is on Thursday 4th October at the Empress of Blandings, everyone’s welcome to pop along and have a chat whether you’re a current member or not.
On Sunday 14th we’re back at the popular Bunny Lane site in Romsey for a play-day.
The weekend of the 27th-28th we’re off to Wales for a weekend of playing at the huge and brilliant Walters Arena, a site with something for everyone and every vehicle. You can book tickets & camping online now!
Some of you may have seen on our Facebook page that some of the committee are intending to step down at the next AGM in May;
Christine, our long-serving / long-suffering Club Secretary has decided to hang up her notebook after more years than it would be polite to count. A huge thanks to Christine for all she’s done for the club over the years.
Gary and Kim Clark are also stepping down from their roles as Events Officer and Newsletter Editor / PR respectively due to work and family commitments. Again, a huge thanks to both of them for their input to the club.
This does mean we have some positions vacant on the committee if you’d like to get involved and help out – it doesn’t need a huge commitment to make a big difference to the running of the club so please do contact us if you’re interested in helping out in any way at all.
We’ve just added two new events to the club calendar;
The first is a simple social gathering on Portsdown Hill for a burger and a mingle, the second is a leisurely visit to Dorset for some green laning and camping on the weekend of the 7th-9th September.
We hope to see you at one or both!
And of course at the club social tomorrow too!
Arran is looking to run a greenlane trip over the August bank holiday weekend (25th-27th) to either the Lake District or to Wales. Let him know which you would prefer via the poll on our Facebook Group: Click here
A reminder that the clock is ticking for our Wales weekend off-roading extravaganza “Summer Sisters” 23rd-24th June, you can book online now!

Thanks to all who turned out for a very muddy play day at Bunny Lane!
It was great to see some new faces as well as the regulars, and we all enjoyed watching everyone struggle to get out of the car park!
Don’t forget our next play day is Mannington on the 25th of Feb, and we’re back at Bunny Lane on the 18th of March for a FREE play day!
See you there!
OK I’m not sure if Christmassyiest is a word but congrats to Noel for winning the competition at our Mannington play-day with his nicely decorated 90!
Congrats to Piers and Chris who came in 2nd and 3rd respectively.
Thanks to everyone who attended, and thanks to everyone who put change in pot for Hampshire & Isle Of Wight Air Ambulance. We hope to see you all next time – the next Mannington is the 25th of February, our next play-day is 28th of January at Bunny Lane.
If you fancy a day out after all the festivities, come along to our play day at Mannington near Ringwood on December 30th.
