Help run your DA

Bedfordshire District Association is your D.A.  We will welcome any help with our meets from stewarding to becoming a committee member.  If you feel you can help please contact Albert, your Chairman for stewarding.  Julie, your new secretary will have forms for you to come onto the committee.  The committee this year is running on minimum numbers and if we don’t have a committee we can’t run as a D.A

You can phone the hotline on 07342 283184 or e mail the secretary on bedsdasecretary@outlook.com

Could you Steward a meet?

It really isn’t that difficult, and you will get all the support you need. There is no requirement for entertainment or any other elaboration (but if you wish to do so then great). Beds DA have meets arranged for 2017 and now need you, the members to help by Stewarding; show us what it is you are looking for and let’s try to do it.

For more information, contact Albert on 07342 283184

THS Netley

We had a very successful THS at Netley this year (2017).  The stewards put a lot of time and effort into making it a great meet.  We will be going back to Netley in 2018, 7th -18th August.  Why not come and try us or come back and meet old friends and make some new ones.

Changes to Beds DA Meet Fee Policy

At the 2014 AGM a question was raised regarding our “per unit per weekend” meet fee policy. Your Committee have discussed this and have decided that at times this policy can unfairly penalise those who have been unable to attend for the complete weekend. A new policy has therefore been introduced:

On normal meet weekends (i.e. Friday to Sunday) the fees will be set at half the prevailing weekend rate per night, plus £2.00  for those attending for Saturday night only. For Bank Holiday weekends and Temporary Holiday Sites, a nightly rate will apply. For Special Events (e.g. Birthday, New Year) a per unit fee will apply

A note from the webmaster

A question raised at a previous our AGM said that the some site directions were lacking. There is plenty of scope for including this here, but I need YOUR help.

If you have a postcode of a site, please can you let me know it.
