URGENT

RCBDA members – your DA NEEDS YOU. Without a treasurer the DA cannot run. We need someone willing to take on the role before the 2nd Saturday in November otherwise the DA will cease to run under their own committee and Southern Region could take control of our accounts. WE DO NOT WANT THIS TO HAPPEN AGAIN.Training will be provided. 

 

Also a number of the current committee will be stepping down at next year’s AGM, for varying reasons. We therefore desperately need new members to join the committee. Without these positions being filled the DA could cease; this is not scaremongering it is fact!!

 

We are asking for your help if you wish the RCBDA to continue running!!! Otherwise it will be down to the Club as to what happens!!

 

As spoken before, the Club are looking at cutting down the amount of DA’s and regions. Don’t let RCBDA be one of them!

SO BE WARNED!!!!

 

Please speak to any committee member if you would like further information.

RCBDA Needs a new Treasurer

RCBDA are actively seeking and new treasurer,

Dave has handed in is notice after successfully keeping a close eye on our accounts for the last 3 years.

We now need to appoint a replacement at our next meeting 17th October.

If you have the time to help the DA in filling this role, please contact a member of the committee.

If however we don’t manage to get a replacement the DA’s future will could be short.

Regards

Edward Lambourne

RCBDA Chairman  

Rule Reminder

Greetings all

I have been asked to communicate the following extracts from the Guidance for Stewards (Green Paper 3.18). This info’ is for all our safety, not just for stewards.

SIX (6) METRE RULE

Excluding guy ropes, units must be at least six (6) metres apart from adjacent units. This is a precaution against fire. Vehicles may be parked between units, providing that a three (3) meter clear space is left within the six (6) meter gap at all times.

CHILDRENS PUP TENTS

Children’s pup tents can be classed as an integral part of the unit, in the same way as an awning, when they are occupied by children and when no appliances with a naked flame is used in or close to them. This means that a child’s pup tent can be pitched close to the parents unit.

Thanking you in advance for helping to adhere to these guidelines.

Kindest regards

Stephen
