The club is pleased to announce that we have been given the opportunity to attend a new event for the club in Padstow, Cornwall, the Padstow Vintage Rally and County Fair on the 1st to 3rd July, located on the A389. This is a new regional event for the club.
We appreciate that this is short notice but due to many requests from members in the South West we hope that this can be well supported and the start of a series of events for this area.
The link for the event is: www.padstow-rally.co.uk
This Midland regional event for the club sees us visit RAF Cosford, part of the RAF Museum collection the same as RAF Duxford. The RAF Cosford site offers a unique experience to the visitor and the exhibits complement each other. The Museumis free to enter and tell the story of the people who moulded the world of aviation from the daredevil early aviators to wartime heroes and the thousands of ordinary Service men and women who have served in the RAF and whose contribution has shaped the world that we live in today. With a world-class collection and display of aircraft, integrated with special exhibitions, films, interactives, artwork, engines, missiles, photographs, medals and uniforms and research and education facilities, the Museum takes an innovative approach to telling these stories whilst keeping with tradition.
We will, of course have our own parking area and there is a car park charge of £4.00 per car.
Hoping to see you there. Please plan to arrive about 10.30.
Once again we are off to Blenheim Palace, a firm favourite with club members.
This venue has always given us great photo opportunities in the past with its stunning grounds and house and we hope that we will be able to park in the Courtyard again as last year. Hopefully this year without the Indian wedding for those that attended!

Further details closer to the time but make an entry in your diaries for a most enjoyable day out.
While this is not an official UK Crossfires event, we are happy to support and help promote it. We wish those taking part our best wishes, and hope you have a great day out!
For the first time the club is organising a Summer Gala in the grounds of the historic Sulgrave Manor which is a fine stately home owned by the Washington family including General George Washington. Link is www.sulgravemanor.org.uk
The date has changed from the 7th due to another event and the plan is to have a garden party atmosphere. We will have a private lawn area for our cars and the dreaded gazebo!
The only cost will be a tour of the house at £5.00 per person and this will be a private tour for club members.
We hope that you can support this event and look forward to your confirmation that you can attend by email to the club email address.
Following feedback from the recent survey we will be holding both National and Regional events.
The National events will be totally organised by the club with Regional events being hosted by local members who have kindly offered their services to help organise.
As always this information may be subject to change but we believe that this is unlikely. Of course, we will be sending out further information closer to the event dates but please make a note in your diaries of these dates.
The club 2016 calendar is now available to order at a price of £9.95 including postage.
