More News on our remaining Meets for 2020

There have been lots of changes over the last few days with regard to our remaining events for 2020. Please read carefully.

The booking requirement for all meets is still in place. The correct fees should be in a see through bag together with your name, contact details, vehicle registration number and membership number. the stewards will still need to see your membership cards.

However since Thurs 24 September there is a change which is connected to the NHS Track and Trace system.

NHS TRACK AND TRACE Please note due to the recent update from the government, we will now be asking all members who attend one of our ‘Pop-Up Camping’ meets to check in via the NHS Track and Trace app. Please download the app before you arrive at our sites and check in via the QR code. The meet stewards will have the QR code available when you arrive on site. You can still manually sign in as not everyone will have technology or sometimes even signal on campsites. However it is mandatory for every site to have and display the QR code by law. Please remember that stewards are all volunteers and are following the guidance provided by Head Office to keep all our members safe!

Additional message.

Further guidance issued from the Head Office today 25th September

The DA by law must display the track and trace QR, but you do not need to use it. 

The NHS App support team have advised Head Office that campers who wish to use the QR code are to use it daily, this is because the App cancels daily scans at midnight. The QR code also needs to be rescanned on return to the site if campers have scanned other QR codes off site.

All ‘Pop-Up Events’ will continue to be booked meets and stewards will be maintaining onsite records of campers, so the Club is also covered if campers do not wish to use the QR code.

Latest news on future social events

Please see below a message from your Chairperson

Dear Members,

On behalf of the committee I would like to thank all members for the support and cooperation with the running of our ‘Pop-Up Campsites’ since camping resumed in August.

At our recent meeting, your committee have made the difficult decision, in light of the recent changes to government advice and guidance received from Headquarters, to cancel all social events planned for the rest of 2020. This include the Members Meeting in October, the Dinner and Dance in November and the Christmas events. Hopefully, we will all be able to meet up again at the AGM on the 20th March 2021.

Looking forward to see you in the field at one of our ‘Pop-Up Campsites’ left for this year.

Stay Safe.

Linda (TDA Chairman)

With deepest sympathy

It is with great sadness that we have to announce that Ted Gove passed away suddenly on Sunday 12th July.
Ted & Debbie were founding members of Tamar DA and spent many years camping with us and always supported the club.
