Pembrey: ED is speaking to Dai about a date, which would be after the BRITS.

New Locations.
RAF Honnington in Suffolk. Andy Hartwell is in discussion with the site to have a fun day, possibly 6/7th July. (This is an active base)
Future events.
The BLSA will be putting in a bid for the 2021 Euros, to be held at Llanbedr in conjunction with the BRITS.
Handbook and Website updates.
DH will make a list of sections that need amending and share them on the Committee FB page for discussion.
DH mentioned that the BLSA labels were almost gone.
CM said he would organise a reprint incorporating the new Blokart logo and have them delivered to DH.
DH said he would ask Steve Harvey to organise a link on the Central Blokart Club website to the BLSA website as previously agreed.
ED said he would bring the BLSA trailer to Uphill at the next fun weekend.
The recent thread re membership price increase was discussed, it was felt some of the posts did not fall into the category of “banter”. The FB members page is for the promotion of a sport, events and news not a forum to openly criticise others, or for dealers to advertise on.  We will publish a note to that effect.
The next meeting will be at 2030 on Tuesday 12th March.
