Happy New Year to Everyone!
We are so looking forward to getting back on the Gurston hill, and so have scheduled the Gurston Down Hill Climb Test Day for BARC SW members for Sunday 7 March 2021. We really hope this can go ahead, and friends reunited.
Applications by email only please, to register your interest for a Test Day entry, please e-mail Nick Revels at firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the list. Indicate if there is a double driver please.
To register your interest, please email me between 1st January and February 5th. Nick is compiling a list of the number of drivers registering an interest. The number of drivers will be limited to 60, and it is a condition of entry that you are a member of BARC SW. If we receive more than 60 driver applications, a ballot will be held.
Nick will inform you in the first week of February if you have been successful, and will send out entry forms and regulations at that time.
We really look forward to seeing you in 2021 !!

Notice of Annual General Meeting – Monday 14th December 2020
As you will be aware the Club is obligated to hold an Annual General Meeting but clearly, current
restrictions on both travel and gatherings make holding such a meeting somewhat problematical, to
say the least. Ideally I would like to postpone the meeting to a later date but our rules do not grant
us the ability to do this. To this end the “meeting” will be held on Monday 14th December 2020
In the circumstances the meeting will have to go ahead effectively behind closed doors. I would
respectfully suggest that there is nothing of exceptional note within the Agenda to cause members
concern. I should be most grateful therefore, once you’ve considered the Agenda, if you would
kindly complete and return the Proxy form to the email address shown in the proxy form
If you have any questions do please feel free to submit them via e-mail prior to the meeting and we
will do our best to answer them. One would hope that the answers will be available at the meeting
and can therefore appear in the Minutes. If this all seems a bit unusual please forgive me

The following donations were made: £1500 to Chalke Valley Sports Centre; £1000 to Broad Chalke Village Hall and £340 Chalke Valley Football Club £340. The balance of £550 is yet to be distributed.
