News from North Staffordshire Region

At the February meeting we held the regional Annual General meeting which was well attended. The accounts were presented by Carol Ingram showing we are in a good state of financial health for the previous 12 month period. The whole committee of members were re-elected for next year, Chairman – Brian Pye, Treasurer/Events Organiser – Carol Ingram, Joint events organiser - Dave Page, Secretary/Regional Organiser – Mike Beirne, and committee members - Alan Vasey, Dave Rockey and Keith Ingram. A presentation was made to the ‘North Staffordshire region member of the year’ who attained the most points over the last 12 months, well done and congratulations to Geoff Taylor. Thanks also to Patrick Sutton for helping with some of the events we attend, Hazel Sutton who sells the raffle tickets and Sue Page who completes the ‘register’ of attendance. Hopefully everyone picked up the change of venue for the March club night meeting. Our popular ‘car of the month’ competition will take place on club nights May to September (light/weather permitting) so make sure you attend in your ‘pride and joy’. Many shows are planned for the year (don’t forget you need to apply for tickets at least two weeks in advance to the organisers of the relevant show), we are unable to provide tickets on a Friday for a show on Sunday! and not all shows appear in this news roundup so if you would like to join us come along to a club night in the The North Staffs Hotel, opposite Stoke railway station (see last months newsletter for more on this).
