National Alfa Day

As you will know doubt be aware, NAD 2012 is being held at Newby Hall, Ripon on Sunday 12th August. Our hosts this year are the Yorkshire Section and following a venue visit last weekend, the ground does seem to be recovering well from all the rain and all should be ok for the event to go ahead as planned.
Whilst we are at the mercy of the weather leading up to the day, we are confident we won’t join the list of nationwide events which have had to be cancelled due to the weather this year.

There will be limited model parking which will be on a first come, first served basis for anyone who has not pre booked. Those wanting to reserve space in the model parking, please email Colin Metcalfe
