The event was attended by 21 people, where an interesting talk by Eric Powell (a Volunteer Speaker on behalf of The Guide Dog Association) about his dog "Yogi" and Guide Dog training was very well received.

Afterwards Eric accepted a cheque for £2,500 raised at the 2013 Woolbridge Charity Karting event from Vic Fancy (WoolbridgeChairman) and Ian Rennison (representing Clay Pigeon Raceway).

The cheque willbe used to name a Woolbridge sponsored Guide Dog and the name chosen by the Woolbridge Board is "Karter".

Subsquent letter received by Woolbridge from Eric and Yogi"

    "Dear Andy and Sue
     

    First of all  thank you so much for pix's they are great - will send two off to Southampton for the 'Forward Magazine'
     

     Secondly, I should like you to convey to your Committee and all Members of the Club; my personal thanks and appreciation for the most generous donation you so kindly gifted to 'The Guide dogs for the Blind Association' and also for the warmth and friendly reception you all extended to 'Me and my dog'.
     

     I noted with interest in your excellent magazine that you may-be looking for speakers - may I offer my services in the way of formal talk about 'The day in the life of a Blind person and his dog' complete with an array of gadgets - if felt that it would be acceptable and appropriate subject. No charge! but donation acceptable to the cause. 
     

     Many thanks again,

    Best wishes 'til we meet again,
     

    Eric and Yogi."

 

This is hoped to be the first of future Natter n Noggins with a organised theme, ideas are welcome."

New Member seeks shared drive in Hillclimbs & Sprints and possibly Car Trials.
A new member who is moving to Somerset in September is seeking a drive in hillclimbs/sprints and possibly trials and is looking for anyone who can a) offer one-offs or b) would sell a share in something interesting though not necessarily a front-runner. He has been competing since the 1960s in a wide variety of cars: Formula Ford, sports racers, various 750 MC classes, Caterhams, Renault Spider, 2CVs, you name it, with some success. However he is now not in a position to campaign his own car these days, though does have the funds to keep someone else’s running. He currently holds a National A licence but has in the past held an International C but couldn’t justify keeping it going.

He has run his own cars at Gurston, Prescott, Goodwood, Cornbury Park etc. and if anyone’s interested he can be contacted via email at fbarnard112@btinternet.com.
