Treasure Hunt season Is Here

Hi there folks. sorry for the delay in getting the info about the treasure hunts. due to some last minute committments the treasure hunt dates will be as follows 3rd November, 10th November, 24th November and the last one before Christmas will be on the 8th December. As usual the last one will be the free buffet for club members and the awards presentations from the summer field events. The start/ finish venue for the first treasure hunt will be the Lethbridge Arms. The route  is done some nice twisty little lanes to get the navigators on their toes and as usual plenty of questions to get the brain cells working too.
Route instructions available from 7pm. All the usual things needed
pen, pencil, clipboard, torch and most important of all entry fee of £5. All club members are welcome even if you’re not entering the treasure hunt. Spread the word.
As usual for any further information contact Tony Bonfield 07980 239730

Five Clubs Wiscombe Hillclimb September 3/4th

##############MARSHALS REQUEST###############

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.


Somerset Stages 2016

Would like to say a real big thanks to all who came out and marshalled last Saturday on Knowle. A really good response from club members both young old and in bewteen. With all the new regulations that had come out in recent months, it had put massive pressure on the organisors to make sure that the event ran within those new rules. They deserve congratulations in putting on a successful event when it would have been very easy to say not to bother, which could have seen the premiere stage rally in the south west fall by the wayside. I think we were reasonably lucky with the weather as I did hear that there had been snow on Chargot and Kennisham.
There was some serious bits of kit out there nothing more so than club members Martyn and Dawn England in their Ford Fiesta R5. Just missing out on a podium finish by 3 seconds. Well done to them. I’m sure they will only get quicker with the rewards that comes with that.
Once again folks thanks again for your help and support.
At the recent AGM it was discussed that we weren’t making best of our Website. So if you have reports from events you have competed in or events you are organising, email them to me so we  can post them on here as well as the Facebook page.
The Summer field tests start again shortly keep an eye out here and the Facebook page for the dates and times

Somerset Stages 2016

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

New year Treasure Hunt

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.
