Annual Representatives Meeting 2015

Annual Representatives Meeting 2015

Event date: 
Saturday, March 7, 2015 - 17:00

Below is the application form for those planning to attend the Morris Ring 2015 Annual Reps Meeting.  Whilst you have known the date for many months we have only recently been able to coerce a ‘committee’ to source an appropriate venue within a reasonable budget and to host the event.  I want to record here my thanks to Mac McCoig, Pete Simpson (West Midlands Area Rep), Peter Copley and John Edwards and their sides for their research and especially to Mac McCoig of Uttoxeter Morris Men who ‘volunteered’ to act as Bagman for the meeting. 

The 2015 ARM will be held at Oak Farm Hotel, Watling Street, Hatherton, Cannock, Staffs  WS11 1SB  (Handy for the M6). It is a one night (Saturday) ARM.  I repeat that it has proved to be extremely difficult to find appropriate accommodation (both for the meeting and sleeping) within anything like a reasonable budget.  We appreciate that this will mean an early start for many on the Saturday morning but it will save you money.


Please note that this is a reduced "weekend" - Saturday & Sunday only. From the critical comments that I have read and had reported to me please do not criticise Mac and his fellow organisers for the lack of the Friday evening. They have stepped in at the last moment to organise and host the ARM when no one else was willing or able so to do. 


Please send Application Forms, along with cheques payable to Uttoxeter Morris Men to Mac McCoig whose address is on the form. He is the Bagman for the event.

Apologies for non-attendance or enquires concerning the business of the ARM please address to me, the Bagman of the Morris Ring, please.
