 The  weekend was centred on the ancient city of YORK (see links)

  The weekend was based at the PAVILION HOTEL, Fulford, York a 3 Star 'Best Western' Hotel

   JOAC arranged 3 nights accommodation at the rate of 103 GB pounds sterling per room night including breakfast. Secure parking.

  JOAC arranged a full and varied programme of places to visit to satisfy all tastes.

  Exceptionally, this year the events began after lunch on Friday.

   There was time to explore York in your own time on Saturday before the AGM.

  The AGM was held at the home of Howard and Jacqui Bryan at 3:30 pm in Askham Bryan, 10 minutes drive from the Hotel. There will be refreshments.

  At the celebratory Dinner, attended by more members than ever before, was on the Saturday evening starting with a reception at 7:00pm.

  The Sunday Run took us up into the North York Moors and will be a scenic delight. It ended at Castle Howard, where the film of Brideshead Revisited was made.

   The programme finished after breakfast on Monday morning for those who are able to stay for the full event.


Welcome refreshments were available at the AGM which was a largely a great social occasion and an opportunity to meet new members and to catch up with old friends.  Members nevertheless were encouraged to give their views and suggestions on all aspects of the club's activities. 
Particularly welcome were ideas and suggestions for future events and tours.

Our hotel was the Best Western Pavilion Hotel 45 Main Street
