Remember… Remember…

Posted on in From the Chair

A few reminders and announcements for this month….starting with:

Social Media.  The MSA have created guidelines to assist users avoid some of the common pitfalls that can arise and to help social media to be used in a responsible way.  This is for your protection – please think twice before posting! (

In particular:

  • Don’t write something that you wouldn’t be prepared to say to someone.
  • When posting on a social media website, assume that anybody can access that post.
  • Determine whether you are participating in a personal or official capacity and consider whether your opinions and activity are appropriate in that context.
  • Remember that participating in social media results in your comments being permanently available and open to being re-published by other media outlets. It should be assumed that anything published in social media will remain available indefinitely, even if it is deleted from the original site.
  • You should be mindful at all times that MSA regulations and UK law continue to be applicable in the online environment.


Regional committee AGMs are in the process of taking place – your chance to have a say and get involved locally.  Or how about attending the National AGMs??

As a Club we wish to record our our very grateful thanks to the organisers of Kop Hill Climb and Donington Park for their recent donations of £2,000 and £1,200 respectively. In both instances these donations reflect the ongoing support our members have provided.

Prize Draw
