Election Night – This will be the second election night this year as at the last one in June it was agreed to move the election night so that newly elected reps would be able to plan the year ahead. The proposal is; Gary is willing to stand for another year with the assistant reps being Michael Bowman, Roger Couch and Jan Dunk. Only current members can vote.

Anyone is welcome to join area 16 for the evening but only members may vote. Postal/Email votes will be counted.

What you may have missed!

We had a great trip to the IOW with 15 cars attending, a lovely chance to catch up with Elisabeth and Volker who planned their holidays to join area 16 with this event and then the Gala Dinner at Wiston House, WOW it was a superb venue and we were well looked after, I am sure we will return in the future for those who missed out, look out in AM Quarterly for a full report and photos.




Sadly the Lancing show was not a success so unlikely to be going back to that one. We tried a murder mystery this year, which was very good and popular, hoping to try another next year so watch out for dates. The annual London to Brighton Vintage Car run was well supported by Area 16 the pub managed to cope with the demand of us and 22 sat down to a good roast.
