This month after ten years as R.O. and eleven years looking after the regions website I decided to stand down as did my Deputy James Taylor. Many thanks James, and Julie for standing in at meetings and organizing some of the events for me. The new R.O. is Shirley Lynch who together with her husband Andy take part in many TVR organized tours and events as well as competing in sprints and hill climbs. I know Shirley will do a great job in the R.O. role for the region, Shirley is also taking over running the website.
It is that time of year again when we elect the Blackpool Regions officers. This past year I have neglected my duties as R.O. as on many occasions the club meetings have clashed with my Sprinting events and when they did not I felt committed to do things with Ann that were none car related.
Russ Larcombe and I have now closed the Blackpool Region bank account. The account was opened in 2010 to hold money relating to the Back Home event we ran at that time. Russ has been asking me to close the account for some time and the monthly account charges have reduced what little money there was in it down to £0.6 in May 2015 where the balance has remained ever since. I WILL BUY A JOINT BAG OF CRISPS AT THE NEXT MEETING AND GIVE YOU ONE EACH!
