Dunsfold Handling Day - 2nd May - Testing the water

OK people, back to real club stuff!

Many of you will know that I announced my decision to step down as DHD organiser after last year's event. 

Sadly, barely 3 months later we received the terribly sad news that my mate and long-time co-conspiritor on the DHD, Dave Hollington, had succumbed to his battle with cancer.

So, here is my plan:

I will run one more DHD on the 2nd May, which will not only be my final event, but will likely be the very last to be held at Dunsfold, since major redevelopment of the site is due to commence there this year.

This event will be known as the Dave Hollington Day and apart from giving you a great time it will have the sole objective of raising funds for the hospice where Dave saw out his last days.

Just to complicate matters we have been informed by Dunsfold that our costs will be substantially higher for this final event, so having been able to maintain the entry price at £65/session for the last 6 years, I regret that we will be forced to increase this to circa £87.50/session,

So, as the title says, I am testing the waters and need an indication of how popular this very last DHD will be. I'm not asking for irrevocable commitment, just an indication of how many would be interested in attending.

I'm listening......

See you on the runway - I hope Thumb Up

That would still be excellent value for what is a great event. I look forward to another opportunity to try and wear out my tyres on the slalom course Smile

I regret to say I've never attended a DHD, so as this is likely the last, and to raise money for such a good cause, I'd definitely be interested.

Count me in, I haven't been before and it sounds a great intro to using the car on a track.

Hi Steve, Having known DaveH and not missed a DHD for many (12+?) years I'm sorry to say I can't do 2nd May as I'm already booked to be working on our street race in Hull. I'm sure there will be enough of interest for it to go ahead and you'll do your usual superb job of organising everyone. Steve N.
