Hi everyone welcome to 2021 hope you are all keeping well and staying safe.

I would like to start by welcoming Charlie (David) Amory and Allison Bingham who took over the position of RYLO’s on 1st January 2021 I think they will have a very challenging year ahead of them, and the decision to cancel the winter youth rally has come of no surprise to anybody let’s hope they can run other planned events for our brilliant youth.

It looks like there will be very challenging times ahead for our DA’s and Sections with the Covid 19 virus still very much with us but I am sure whenever possible they will provide safe camping for us all, but In these uncertain times I cannot stress how important it is to keep checking DA/Section and region websites for the latest up to date information on any meets as these may change at very short notice.

A list of Yorkshire Region THS sites for 2021 is available to view just click on the link on this website.

Plans are still in place for the Yorkshire Region “Big Meet” which will take place on 17th to 20th June 2021. A booking form is in the centre of the Yorkshire Region fixture book (due out late February 2021) and also available to download from the Yorkshire Region website this will be a fun packed “family” weekend with live entertainment/onsite bar/trade stalls/sports/children’s entertainment and for a weekend fee of £35 (£30 with advance booking discount) and FREE camping on Thursday night, one not to be missed. Please do keep checking our website for the latest information on this event and of course any booking payments will be fully refunded should this event have to be cancelled.

At this moment in time the 2021 region AGM will be held at The Old Brodleians RUFC Hipperholme on the 15th May hosted by Huddersfield & Spen DA but we will be guided by government and club guidelines and this event may have to be held virtually (keep checking our website) and if possible please do come along and have your say then join us for an evening social if we are allowed.

All DA and Section AGM’s before 30th April 2021 will have to be held virtually so check their websites for information on this.

That just leaves me to say take care, stay safe and hopefully we will all meet in a field somewhere.
