The committee would like to express their gratitude to all the organising team who have worked tirelessly over the past years to keep the event on track as well as running what has become a first class event for many years in the past.

I hope your all well and staying safe in these difficult times…… It is our intention to run the Red Kite on 13th June 2021. This will obviously depend on the circumstances due to the Covid 19 situation. The event organisers have to deal with 5 major authorities, MSUK, Welsh Government, R4W, NRW and NPTCBC , which all have slightly different rules when it comes to Covid 19, as if things weren’t difficult enough already when planning an event. Hopefully it will ease in the New Year. If you will be available for the event in 2021 can you please let me know on the email address below and I will keep you up to date with progress. Merry Christmas and a Healthy and Safe new Year.

Kind Regards

Stacey Thomas

Welcome to the first update of 2021, we hope you all had as good a Christmas and New Year as was allowed. As there has been virtually no motorsport in 2020 and no club activities, the committee have decided that all membership from 2020 will be rolled over to 2021. There will be no charge for club membership for 2021. Membership cards will be issued once  club nights are able to resume, whenever that might be, but if anyone needs one before then please get in touch with the Membership Secretary Neil Amber or any committee member and we will arrange this for you.  Up to now we have not had any information for rallies that we have been asked to marshal on but will inform you as soon the organising clubs release the information. We will be holding another Red Kite Meeting on 12-01-21 and will keep you informed of any news.

We intend to hold a members zoom meeting on Wednesday the 27th January at 8pm to answer any questions you might have. Joining details will be emailed to members the week before the meeting. We hope you can join us and look forward to seeing you.

As we come to the end of what has been a very strange year and we enter our third lockdown, this will be the last update of 2020. We held our virtual AGM  via zoom last month and we had a reasonable turn out. As there hasn’t been any club activity it was quite a short meeting with all the committee being re-elected on-bloc. We also held a Red Kite Meeting to discuss the on-going situation with the Covid restrictions, it was agreed by all that we carry on with the planning of event and review the restrictions again  in January. Rob Mitchell has agreed to be the Covid 19 Officer for the event. The Chief Marshal, Stacey Thomas, will be posting marshalling details on the club Facebook page and I will post them on the web site as soon as i receive them.

On behalf of the Committee I would like to wish all members a Merry Christmas and a safe and Prosperous New Year.

We hope you are all keeping well in this the second lockdown, we held a second members Zoom meeting on the 28-10-20 for all paid up members which was a bit better supported this time and we intend to do more in the near future.

At our Zoom committee meeting tonight the committee was informed that an article appeared in Motorsport News on the 15-10-20, on page 10 Rally News in the In Brief column stating that the Red Kite 2021 would not be running, this is in fact not true, the event is still going ahead on the 13th June 2021. We are not aware where Motorsport News got this information from and our club Secretary will be contacting them to inform them that the information is incorrect.

A reminder that the AGM of Amman and District Motor Club Ltd will be held next Wednesday 11th November 2020 at 8 pm. This will be held via Zoom, the Agenda and joining instructions have been emailed to all paid up members. If you have not received yours yet please contact the Club Secretary.

 

19-10-20

The AGM of Amman and District Motor Club Ltd will be held on Wednesday 11th November 2020 at 8pm. Due to the current situation in the UK with Covid 19, the committee have decided to hold it via ZOOM. 

The Club Secretary will contact all paid up members with the agenda and joining instructions via email.

15-10-20

As announced last week, we held a virtual members meeting last night on Zoom, unfortunately the invitation was not taken up by the membership for whatever reason. The committee have decided to hold another one in two weeks time on the 28-10-20, at the slightly later time of 20:30 and hopefully we will see a some of you on there. The Secretary will email joining details to all paid up members who have given an email address when joining the club. As this is a new thing for the club we feel it is the best way of keeping members up to date with things and with the AGM being held on Zoom next month we thought it would be a good idea to get you used to how Zoom works. Hope to see some of  you in two weeks.

Hi everyone, we hope you are all staying safe and well in these uncertain times. With motorsport being almost non existent at the moment and more so in Wales, and with our club nights on hold, the committee has decided to hold a virtual members meeting on “zoom” next Weds, 14th October starting at 20:00, to let you know what is going on and give you the chance to ask the committee any questions you might have. Our club Secretary will notify all paid up members by email with the joining details this week. If you don’t receive your invite by the end of this week please contact me via the “contact us” link on this page.

08-09-20

After a committee meeting tonight,08-09-20, the committee have made the unfortunate decision to suspend our weekly club nights at the Golf club due to the fact that we feel we are not in a position to safeguard all our members well being due to restrictions in place at the Golf club. We held a club night there last week and we did not feel we could safeguard you all at this present time. We intend to have a “zoom” club night in the near future and all members will notified with joining instructions by the Secretary shortly.

We are sorry that we have to take these measures, but the health and wellbeing of  our members is paramount, and we hope you will join us on our “zoom” club night.

SEPTEMBER UPDATE:

After a committee tonight 08-09-20, the committee have made the unfortunate decision to suspend our weekly club nights at the Golf Club due to the fact we are not in a position to safeguard our members well being due to restrictions in place at the Golf Club. We held a club night there last week and we didnt feel we could safeguard you all at this present time. We intend to have a “zoom” club night in the near future and all members will be notified with joining instructions by the Secretary shortly. We are sorry that we have to take these measures but the health and wellbeing of our members is paramount, and we hope you will join us on our “zoom” club night. 

 

GOOD NEWS……. Club nights will resume on Weds 2nd September from 8:30 pm, and finish at 10:30 pm until further notice. This is to comply with the Golf Clubs own restrictions and we must comply with there social distancing rules which means no tables or chairs are to be moved from there location on arrival, and a maximum of 35-40 people are allowed in the lounge……..(I dont see this being a problem). we will have in place a track and trace system, and all personal details recorded on club nights will be shredded after 21 days. We look forward to seeing those who are willing to attend, but also respect those that don’t feel quite ready to attend for what ever reason.

This has been a trying time for all of us, in more ways than one, and I hope that we can start to resume some sort of normality in the not so distant future. Thank you for your patience and hope to see you at club soon.  Alan Hinton. Chairman

AUGUST UPDATE. We hope you are all staying safe and well. The committee have been in contact with the Golf club and as of yet we are not able to resume our club nights, as soon as things change we will let you all know. In the sort term the committee are looking into using ZOOM and we plan to have a committee meeting using it next week to try it out and hope to have ZOOM club nights in the future.  We will let you know how we get on and hope to see on ZOOM if not at club.
