2017 Kicked off for EEDA at our Valentines ball over the weekend of the 10/12th February and what a weekend it was. With a great turnout of units and evening visitors it made for a weekend that won't be forgotten and plans for next years ball are already underway.

Our next meet is on the 10th March at the Room in the Rodings, where we will be holding a fun & games weekend in the heated hall.
On the 17th we have our AGM weekend at Chelmer Valley School. The site opens at 6.15pm - not 5pm as in the magazine and diaries so please do not arrive before then as this is an operational school and we will not be camping in the same place we have previously. Camping for the whole weekend is just £10.00 per unit. You don't need to camp to attend the actual AGM which starts at 2pm on Saturday, but you do need to be an EEDA member to attend the meeting and you must have your membership card with you (non EEDA members are still welcome to camp). Saturday evening will bring a disco and games.
We have some committee members retiring this year, so if you would like to join the committee or would like more information, please contact our secretary Jason Bryant - 
secretary@eeda.co.uk.

Later in March we have our working party at the Kelvedon Hatch Club site. All pitches are FREE, hard standing, and include EHU! This is a booked meet and booking should be made with our countryside care officer, Steve Ponton on 07958535726 after 5.30pm or by email 
sponton@eeda.co.uk. If anyone is brave enough to want to camp on grass under canvas, this can be accommodated by arrangement.
 
Easter brings us back once again to East Bergholt. Activities and entertainment are being finalised now, but you can be assured of a great fun filled weekend. With large amounts of hard standing and grass pitches this all-weather location is untroubled by rain, and with heated halls and toilets available it is always popular.
 
To make these meets possible we rely on stewards who camp the meet for FREE. If you are able or want to steward (or would like more information on stewarding) any of our meets or THS sites during 2017, please do not hesitate to contact us 
sites@eeda.co.uk or visit the website www.eeda.co.uk/meets 
where you can see which meets we still require stewards for.
