Three more CYDA Youths Pass the CCY Youth Test
Congratulations to Dan Brown, Ryan Harvey and Rebecca Squires who passed their CCY youth test recently. All three were presented with their certificates at the Halloween Meet by CYDA Chairman Bob Hannam. The DA is delighted to have three more youths passing their test, building on the success of Scott Harvey earlier this year. A big well done to all the youths and of course our Youth Leaders Ann and Alan Brown for organising and supporting the youth intiatives throughout the season.

Chairman's report, summer 2017
Well my second spell as Chairman started off with a record breaking THS meet at Pateley Bridge with 173 units at its peak and a great event by everyone during which we raised over £900 for Yorkshire Air Ambulance.
Andy Stell (Sites Officer) has introduced some new sites for the 2017 season in response to members asking for new places to visit. So far, the new sites have not been well attended, despite being in the Yorkshire Dales, or close to, with stunning panoramic views. Whilst this lack of popularity is disappointing, feedback from those who attended the Malham and Thornton Country Park meets was very positive and they clearly enjoyed their stay.
It’s coming close to the start of the main holiday season with THS’s starting soon. So please support CYDA if at all possible. Enjoy your summer and as we keep saying, if there is anything or anywhere you would like to go, please let a committee member know and we will endeavour to help and fit it in.
Bob Hannam (Chairman)
Fed up with the long, dark winter nights & missing your camping friends. Fear not as we are having a Bowling Night!
Its the CYDA Bowling night on Saturday 3rd February 2018 at the Shipley Bowl (GO Bowling, Shipley Lanes, Market Street, Shipley. BD18 3QD). Please be there at 7 pm for a prompt 7.30pm start.
Prices are subsidised for members of CYDA; adults £10, kids £5 (upto 17years of age) which includes 2 games of bowling, a basket meal and a drink.
If you are interested in coming along then please let Mandy Burgess know (07786153285) without delay, as booking these activities can be rather tedious. Mandy needs to place the booking with GO Bowling in the next few days to secure the date, so the earlier you can contact her the better.
For more news and up to the minute details (like who else is going!) see the Central Yorkshire Facebook page. Come on and join us – you know you want to.
There is a vacancy for the position of Sites Officer available from the 2018 AGM. This is a key role and it is absolutely essential that we have a Sites Officer who can identify and book sites for the forthcoming season. This notice is to give advance notification to enable any interested parties to come forward and see whats involved. If you are interested and think you can help the club then please have a chat with Bob.
