To all the students that want to take the Intermediate training course in September.
Unfortunately due to PC failure I have lost a lot of the names of people that wanted to take the course. Please send me an e-mail if you are interested to training@MKARS.org.uk. There are still a few places left on the course.
As most of you will be aware, our annual Rally is fast approaching..
And as usual we require Helpers / Volunteers to ensure that we have a successful Rally.
The proceeds from the Rally enable the Club to purchase new equipment for the benefit of the membership.
So we must ensure that we all make it a big success.
If you can spare some of your valuable spare time on Saturday 23rd or Sunday the 24th, or both.
Please come along to the Club on Monday the 18th, and offer you services.
Or if you are unable to attend, and wish to volunteer your services, please contact one of the Committee Members.
We look forward to seeing you on Monday..
