Just a heads up for next years Great Northern Weekend.

As some of you may know, last weekend Claire and myself were volunteered to arrange the event and so not shirking a challenge we been busy investigating suitable venues.

From the success of last weekends event, we have decided to go for early to mid May again, that way there should be no excuses that it's too cold, wet, salty or the cars are still SORN over the winter months. Obviously there is a higher chance of warmer weather too, although don't hold us to it.

We have contacted around a dozen venues so far, all with over 50 bedrooms, great ammenities and good safe car parking, to date half have declined due to previous (mainly wedding) commitments, two are very interested, others have stated 'maybes' and the remaining are yet to respond.

We are expecting to have a definitive venue organised in the next fortnight or so and will keep everyone informed in due course.

Thanks,

Claire & Paul Greenway

Update-

Hotel is confirmed, we have all 52 rooms provisionally allocated & whole Car Park so all Lancias will be together.

Claire and I are very excited about the venue, it is in  prime spot with great views and plenty amenities. After some haggling- mainly on Claire's side we have agreed a great deal for the quality on offer.

I am intending there to be two driving routes, one about 60 miles that will be testing on both car (ensure gearbox and brakes are in fine fettle) and driver who will require their wits about them, however the reward is magnificent, the other less demanding route of about 40 miles is still a lovely drive though.

Definitive information will follow both on the forum and the July issue of VL magazine at the same time.

Cheers,

Paul.

Hi all,

Hotel confirmed, advertisement in July edition of Viva Lancia! as follows-

Great Northern Weekend: Lake District
12th-14th May 2017

Following the successful GNW held at Harrogate in May this year you are warmly invited to next years event which will be at the 4 star Beech Hill Hotel and Spa, Newby Bridge Road, Windermere, LA23 3LR.  This should be a fantastic venue with the most stunning backdrop on the banks of England's largest lake.  We have managed to secure all 57 rooms and it would be brilliant if we could fill them all. There is a large car park. The hotel has given us a special discounted price of 320 including two nights bed & breakfast, 3 course gala dinner with sparkling wine reception and coffee / tea. Should you wish to stay for one night the cost is 185 including DBB.  There are a number of family rooms and the cost per child is 37.50 (including dinner). The cost for a single room is half that of the double room.  There are a small number of rooms on the ground floor, please specify at time of booking.There is also full use of the leisure facilities.

Bookings can be made directly with the hotel on 08445027587. Stephanie is the lovely lady who has organised it. They require a deposit of 75 in total. Balance of payment to be made on check out. (Please let them know you're with the Lancia Motor Club.)

It would be great if we could fill the hotel and have exclusive use of all the facilities.  The hotel is situated just a 5 minute drive from Bowness and only 20 minutes drive from J36 of M6. We plan to follow the successful & well oiled format for the weekend with a touring rally planned for the Saturday to take in some of the stunning scenery the Lake District has to offer. There will also be a couple of quizzes to get you thinking.

 Let's just hope that the weather is as kind to us as it was this year.  Further information and menus will be sent out early next year. Please book soon to avoid disappointment. We hope to see you all there.

 If you've never been to a GNW before please come along, they are always a fantastic opportunity to meet up with old friends and meet new people, share an interest in cars and have a relaxing weekend being waited on in beautiful surroundings. There is something for everyone.


Regards
Paul, Claire Joe & Sam Greenway

Update & Menus

Hope you all had a great Christmas and the New Year is prosperous.

Just a heads up regarding the 2017 GNW. The Hotel is already over 70% booked, so please let's get the final 16Nr rooms occupied so we can have total run of the place.

As all who have attended previously the GNW is a fabulous event and the Lakes in May is not to be missed. For those interested, please see the advert in Viva Lancia! and put your deposit down directly with Stephanie at the Hotel at the earliest opportunity to avoid any possible disappointment.

The menu's for both adults and children have been finalised and what a selection we have, please see attached. Hard copies will be in next months VL for all to complete and return to both the Hotel & myself.

See you all there.

Saluti.

Paul & Claire

Apologies for that Roger, especially as Anne & yourself are regulars at GNW's. Not being a dog owner I never even considered this element, however we do have another couple with a dog who have booked alternative arrangements for the weekend attending (I can obtain details if you require) who will be coming on the touring rally & we are accommodating them for the gala dinner.

My wife  & dog & I have been regulars for some years & equally miffed about no dogs,but the dog is very old,some may remember her last year eating ice cream at the railway station ,after she had just had all her teeth out !! However she is one year older & not in good health so she may not survive until May.We have a room booked which we might pass on to a son who came last year & we could then go somewhere else if the dog is still with us.

I have had an email from the organisers of the Cumbria show asking how many of us might attend on the Sunday morning? Can any one who is definitely going let me know via email - neilpinleeds@gmail.com.

Thanks

Latest-

52 of the 57 rooms booked to date, it would be absolutely amazing if we could fill it up to take advantage of the whole facility to ourselves.

Without harping on, the GNW is a wonderful event, one of the finest on the LMC calendar with wonderful people and in superb settings.

Claire and I are going up there on Saturday to finalise all details and complete the touring rally/observation run whilst the weather forecast is favourable.

If I don't write again before the event, see you all there.
