It’s not looking good for the weekend to go ahead.
The numbers that have registered interest is nowhere near to what is required for the event to be a success.
So unless there is a dramatic uptake in the last few days of January then I will have to cancel this Scott meeting.
Mike I quite agree, what I would like to know is how the committee can insist number must be known by the end of January. other years the booking form has not gone out till april. Eddie said that even then booking was very slow and didn’t pick up till the last few weeks. Eric
Hi Richard there is, its up to the membership to let there voices be heard loud and clear and let the committee know that Abottsholme is wanted,then turn out in force and make it a record turnout just to prove it Otherwise we may loose the annual do altogether Eric.
Any chance of piggy-backing on one of the other clubs? I think the Velo owners meet on a campsite near Burntwood for a weekend maybe with another one-make club. Abbotsholme is perfect though, pity to lose it, you would have thought that one of the other clubs would have been keen to join us.
Have just been looking at entries for the annual do since 2004 numbers not much different to Abottsholme so why the panic for number by end of January, entries were 2004 61 2005 55 2006 57 and 2007 38. eric
If we want to piggyback on to the Velocette event I would suggest we make contact sooner rather than later, I don’t know how much crossover there is with SOC/VOC/NI members. Roger Franklin is the chairman ( thoroughly nice bloke)
