Annual Club Green Road Run – 6th January 2019

Nov 29, 2018

Missed out on this years green lane runs don’t worry the next one is on 6th January 2019

 

 

This green lane run will take place on Sunday 6th January 2019 and visit our traditional driving area of south Cumbria. Since there have been marked changes to the management of many of the more demanding lanes, under the Hierarchy of Trail Routes initiative and the NERC act legislation, around twenty routes are now unavailable and others have become one-way making the development of continuous itineraries difficult. There has been a marked lack of management over the last few years combined with marked storm damage, which has resulted in more challenging driving with more need for localised marshalling. It is therefore possible that some scratching of paintwork may occur, particularly with larger vehicles. Roof-racks can be susceptible to catching on low branches. I need to know vehicle types to create sensible groups that will not be varied except in exceptional circumstances.

 

 

The rendezvous for the day will be M6 Burton (Kendal South) motorway service area, which is just inside Cumbria 3 miles north of junction 35 Carnforth. The time for arrival is 9.30am to get groups assembled and set off by 10.00am. For everyone, bring recovery equipment, maps, mobile phone, CB, food and drink, warm/waterproof clothes for the day, this is a family fu day

 

 

All groups will be a maximum of four vehicles including the leader. If you have maps and a navigator please volunteer to lead since any shortfall in leaders will result in groups not going. All drivers must be members of RRLRC. I will send itineraries with map references of lanes to group leaders a week or so before the run.

 

 

We will continue to keep the event free of charge, but will be asking for voluntary contributions on the day to support LARA, the national body that protects our interests in access to our recreation.

 

 

 

 

Booking form to be returned by 4th December 2018 by post (no verbal or telephone bookings) to:

 

Roger Wright, 51 Blackburn Road, Whittle le Wood, Chorley, PR6 8LF.

 

Or via email to: shop@redroselrc.co.uk

 

No applications will be accepted after the 04/12/18

Chairmans Words – September 2018

Sep 18, 2018

Hello Red Rose Members,

 

The time has come, yes the AGM is on 2nd of October club night.

 

Obviously all positions on the committee are up for taking, but we are desperate for internal and external social, we did need a magazine editor but thankfully Mr Cornwell Snr has stepped in.

 

On the magazine we have struggled this year, but if we don’t have volunteers to help the tasks won’t get done.

 

As for club nights with no internal social, speakers are not getting invited, we rely on the same members to step up to serve the food and take payment, don’t get me wrong the committee are very great full, but we have 153 members that could help.

 

External social is being broken up in to events that non committee members are taking on (and doing a great job) could you help too ?

 

We are always on the lookout for trial land, the way Ince site is being developed I think we may lose it in the next few years or it will be too flat to be of any use to us.

 

As your out going Chairman (if I’m not voted back in) I would like to personally thank, club members, committee members, clerks, marshals, land owners, sponsors, and all the helps behind the scenes, we really couldn’t do it without you.

 

We are all busy people, we all have lives, but if we don’t muck in and help, there will be less events, less socials, and less trials, it’s your club ! What do you want from it in the next 12 months.

 

Kind regards,

 

Alastair Hayhurst.

 

Chairman RRLRC.
