Hi folks its that time again when I make the plea for marshals for the Five Clubs Hillclimb at Wiscombe on the 3/4th September. We cannot run without the help of volunteers. As usual lunch will be provided and lots of marshals prizes. I will try to do my best to arrange good weather 😀. If you can help on either or both days please contact me through Facebook or on my mobile 07980 239730.

Taunton Motoring club have a stand (54) at the racecourse on Sunday. Come along and support Stafford and crew. Its the perfect opportunity to promote our club to the public. Especially with the number of disciplines the club is involved in. The club caravan will be there along with a selection of vehicles. The weather outlook is good for Sunday. With it being a FREE ENTRY, I would expect a high turnout of the public. For more details contact Stafford Coombes. 07855 663115.

Following this there will be an awards presentation for the Winter series, all are welcome .
VERY IMPORTANT NOTE.
I am still in need of as many matshals as we can muster for the Knowle Stage on the 16th of April.
Signing on 8am Wooten Courtney. The stage runs twice finally closes 6pm.
The event is under massive pressure in the fact that if there are not enough marshals on a stage the MSA safety delagate has the power to shorten or even worse cancel stage. So this is a plea to get our stage well covered. We need to get as many of our volunteers registered or accreditted. Please contact me to volunteer your services. Message me or phone on my normal number 07980 239730

Hi there Folks hope you’ve all had a brilliant Christmas and new year. Hopefully the after effects have now worn off.
Sorry its a bit late in posting the start and finish of the next treasure hunt on 7th January, but Sheila and I have spent most of last weekend driving around trying to find roads that weren’t underwater in places. Thankfully we have comprised a route last night and i checked some of it again tonight. It seems that although there are some places with puddles, …nothing too serious if driven with caution. I confirmed with the start and finish venue that all was ok with them tonight as well.
Start and Finish will be the Cross Keys @ Cross Keys. Route instructions will be available from 7pm. All the usual requirements needed
pen ,pencil,torch, clipboard and of course £5 entry fee.
Food is available up to 10pm but must be ordered and paid for before you leave. As usual Ican be contacted on 07980 239730 for any further info.
If you could let me know if you are attending that would be great just saves on the photocoping cheers see you Thursday.
Well folks its that time of year again when we eat, drink and be merry. I would like thank all our club members who have come out and supported the club during the year. Whether it being organising, marshalling, competeting or attending the social events at the race course and the treasure hunts. So long as we can do this our club will remain strong. The Christmas buffet was well received good food and a cosy if a little cramped venue. Heating definately not required
Hopefully 2016 will again be a good year for the club. In the meantime wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a brill New Year.
Well folks here we are at the end of another year. December the 10th is the final treasure hunt for 2015 and will start and finish at the Merry Harriers. The route will be a little shorter because following the treasure hunt will be the annual FREE BUFFET (for Club Members) Nominal fee for non club members £5 come along and enjoy a pleasant evening, chat motorsport. exchange ideas, maybe plans for the 2016 season. After the buffet will be the awards presentation for the Summer Driving skills. It would be good to see as many of the summer field eventers there as possible supporting the winners. The turnout last year was very good and would make the effort of organising this years bash well worth while. I am due to see the landlord Thursday the 3rd December to decide on what should be in the buffet. I’m sure there could be some salad for those who prefer the healthy option 😀 on the other hand maybe not. I will need numbers by Tuesday 8th at the latest so it will give the pub time to get the supplies in. We had about 35 people this time last year so it would be good if we could increase it this time. Spread the word and make the last major social event of the year a good one. As usual for further information message me through our facebook page or by mobile 07980 239730 before 9pm please.
