VTTA Kent Group Annual Lunch & Prize Presentation Sun 20.2.11 Smarde

This event which has been losing favour at Ditton due to bar & caterer problems, will now take place at the KCA Lunch venue as above with a 4 month break in between. I am running it with VTTA Committee help in the absence of a Social Sec & I ask all of you who ride as Vets in KCA events or in VTTA events of all ages to show support for the VTTA by booking for what is usually a good 'do'. Its future is already threatened if a Social Sec does not come forward - let them at least see it is a thriving proposition. Our Special Guest is Mick Ballard, Unity CC, one of the best TT riders anywhere in the 70-80s & still involved. Our new VTTA Chairman Mark Vowells is one of the speakers & Paul Mepham is as usual MC. Please phone me on 01580 291737 or email me at if you would like to attend. Special diets catered for. Bar being run by the George Egerton so good booze available. Pat Hill

The George Egerton has changed hands, but there will be no change to our WW rota as the new owner David Glazebrook will welcome our business, so don't panic! Also note that we are due at the Stilebridge Inn on 22nd December but as usual, I have given them the option to ask us to make other arrangements if they wish to utilise their restaurant for Special Christmas Lunches. Pubs need the chance to make as much money as possible at this time & I know we have at least one WW pub who would welcome us twice in our 7 week rota so we have no problems. Watch this space for more details in due course & spread the word to no PC Woblers. Pat
