We really want you to leave our weekend meets telling your friends and colleagues what a great weekend you have had, and how you are looking forward to the next weekend with Tyne Tees.

If you feel you can make a difference and are interested in hosting such a weekend, but are unsure of how to do it, please don’t hesitate to ask.

We believe we in the Tyne Tees area have one of the strongest sections and dedicated membership, we also firmly believe we have a lot of untapped potential both in terms of locations and venues within our region. Supplementing this, we have a membership full of the right skills and enthusiasm capable of driving the club to new levels.

With the continued help and support of the committee, we intend to bring that potential to fruition, we hope and plan to achieve this through the implementation of new venues offering a greater range of interests. Building on these venues, we look to offer balanced activities which appeal to the enthusiast as well the novice, the young as well as well as not so, those looking to be active as well as respecting those wanting to relax and take pleasure from spectating, chilling out and generally enjoying their surroundings.

For activities, we have ran themed weekends of cycling and fly fishing, these being the more main stream, to more bizzar activities, this being the our annual great sausage making competition, “yes” you heard right”, this is held annually at Tilery Cottage, Sedgefield, here eager competitors received their sausage making kits and are challenged to develop a culinary delight. Each entry is judged by a renowned panel of local sausage eating experts and a trophy is duly awarded to the deserved winner (winner announced in the Winter edition of caravanning).

Now at this point, these note may seem like a sales pitch and in some respects they are, but for us, it is all about planting the seeds and ensuring we grow as a section.

Hopefully from our previous notes and postings, you will begin to get a feel of what we are looking to achieve and what we are focused on, why we need to emphasise active membership and why we want people involved.

The goal is simple “Regenerate a family club with a family feel” by linking the common themes of “Active involvement”, “enthusiasm” and most of all memorable fun and enjoyment for all.

So, anyone reading this rallying cry and feels stimulated enough to want to become involved or feel they can make a difference, I would actively encourage you, be it an existing member or potential new area member to get in touch with me with any ideas for theme’s, activities or venues. If you are not sure how to, just drop me an e-mail via the link on the committee contacts.
