WHAT HAPPENED THIS MONTH.     

 

April Meeting. Average turn out of members for dans bingo, Full house went to Frank, Dan had a couple of announcements, Sadly John sharman passed away. Next month we will be handing out entry forms for anyone wishing to exhibit at The Wessex Country Fair at Wilton house on $th August.  It Seems a few people are not sure what our insurance covers. I would like to verify that the Swaps insurance does cover you for working machinery within a roped area. This includes self propelled vehicles that are static and within the roped area. It does not cover any self propelled vehicle whilst moving. 

Next month is the Rocker cover race, There has been a lot of interest already, and still time to build yours. should be a fun evening. Also next month we need all your completed white and pink GDSF forms back please. 

May Meeting. Very good turn out for the Rocker box Race. Thanks to Dan for building a great track, and organising tonight's event. Great turn out of racers, all sizes and shapes. Overall winner was Roger . There will be another rocker box race night, (watch this space) Hopefully all your GDSF forms have been returned, If anyone that has not filled in a form to exhibit at the Wessex country fair on 4th august, at Wilton house, plz contact me ASAP. Next month is a social evening. 

June Meeting. Quiet evening, no events, just a social night. We have 23 members entered for the Country fair at wilton house on 4th August in the SWAPS section. You can set up on the Saturday and leave it safe as we will be on site all night. I think the Rocker race at the GDSF will be on the Friday evening with refreshments. you will all be told times etc. Next month is the club BBQ. all members and family welcome 7-30 on.  



Somersets Festival of Transport  24/25th Sept 2016.  This weekend 9 members of SWAPS received "Best in show" cup for their exhibit at this years Festival of Transport near Wincanton.  The collection was organised by Dan and we were given our own corner of the show ground to display are farm and forest display.  

South Wiltshire Agricultural Preservation Society After the 2017 AGM we had a open dissuasion regarding the running of a SWAPS open day at the Salisbury livestock market early next year. The feedback and support from the members present was very positive.So as soon as we have a available date from the market we will let you all know. Hopefully it will be march-April before you all go rallying. It will be free to the public with the use of the canteen and the toilets. So come on. we are looking for displays, tractors, cars, motorcycles, stationary engines, rural crafts, working or static. All members welcome.
