We are now planning the 2022 calendar and it will be the anniversary edition celebrating 50 years of the Granada. I will be putting together the cover and doing the inside cover write up. But we still need more photos. I have already received 5 great photos - 4 x Mk1 and 1 x Mk2. So I am now looking for another 7 photos to complete the 12 needed. - 2 x Mk1 & 5 x Mk2 So if you want to get a photo of your Granada in the calendar please email them into me here.
This year's AGM rally is definitely going ahead on Sunday 25 July. See the advert on page 10 of the Mag for details about location and booking in. But please note it will be very different from our normal AGM due to the current ongoing covid regs. Bryan Stone has highlighted the changes in his chairmans chat and I have also added a page in the Mag showing our AGM covid rules we should follow when at the rally site. See page 11.
Everyone is aware that the England rules are due to change on the 19 July. But the only real change from the current regs is the likely increase to the numbers allowed to gather in one place. The regs on mask wearing in enclosed spaces and social distancing are certainly expected to remain in place for the very near future. And this is why (with regret) we will not have the car judging and the raffle at this years AGM. It is worth noting that the hoops we would have to go through to comply with the regs to allow the use of judging forms and raffle tickets are vast and that is on top of the compliance to social distancing. In the current circumstances we must keep you guys safe.
