EVENT: YORKSHIRE REGION MEET Our Region hosts a meet where all its District Associations (DA) meet up together for one weekend of the year in the summer. Leeds DA ran this year’s meet at Carlton Towers, near Selby. Friday night was a get together with friends and the action-packed Saturday featured the opening ceremony and a Mardi Gras with a musical theme. We decided to do Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. It looked great.
DATE: 19-22 June 2014
VENUE: CARLTON TOWERS, SELBY
Each DA could also compete against each other in football, netball and volleyball. The Youth Section held a penny fair in the afternoon. We had a variety of trade stands and a few food vans. Entertainment and an open mic session were put on for all. We danced Saturday night away in the open arena. On Sunday the youth took part in the Austin Sports Trophy that had been postponed due to the bad weather we experienced at the Region Youth Rally (see earlier report).
In all, this annual event proved a great weekend and fun was had by all, with many camping friends meeting up with each other.
