RED ROSE DECEMBER BULLETIN
Red Rose Cock at Budworth meeting /Christmas Lunch - 9th December

We look forward to seeing everyone on the 9th in your Christmas jumpers!
2019 Red Rose Calendar
This year's calendar will be available at the Red Rose Christmas lunch at the bargain price of £5! Or email firstname.lastname@example.org to place your order. We have a smaller print run this year so get yours early to avoid disappointment. They make great Christmas presents!
Once again the Classic Car Show at the NEC proved to be a very popular event. The stand was looking good and there were some nice cars on show and lots of trade stands to browse around. This year the TR youth team had a stand for the first time and they did us proud by winning a prize! They are the future of the club and should be commended for all the effort they put in to making the stand look so good.
The November Red Rose meeting could only mean one thing the annual Quiz! Thank you to David Rhodes for once again taking on the role of quiz master. The questions this year were all related to 1968 which is the year David was born and as usual they were very difficult with no team getting a perfect score but the many brains in the winning team came close!
A few faces we haven't seen for a while made a welcome return and we had our usual raffle and updates on forthcoming events.
Red Rose Weekend 2019
Over the last few months we have actively been seeking feedback for this event so it is with regret that due to lack of interest and support The Red Rose Weekend will not be taking place next year, however if anyone has any suggestions for an alternative event then please email us at email@example.com.
Independent Panel Review & TR Register AGM
Since the last bulletin the TR Register has held its AGM and the Independent Review Panel has concluded its investigation – A copy of the review panels interim report and AGM notes are available to view on the TR Register Web site.
The Year Ahead
Looking ahead to 2019 we have already started filling in our events calendar. We will start the year with the AGM so if you would like to be more involved in the running of the club why not come along and see if there is a role you would like to take on.
February is our events meeting and we are always looking for suggestions, we particularly need ideas for Drive it Day in April and post meeting runs throughout the years so get your thinking caps on!
The photo competition will be back in March so if you would like to see one of your car photos in the 2020 edition you haven't got long to snap that perfect picture!
