This year’s AGM will be held at The Chase Hotel in Cheltenham on 12th/13th October.
The guest speaker is Richard Hackett
“Richard Hackett was ’sold’ into slavery by his father to Tony Crook at Anthony Crook Motors in the late 1950’s. Having failed to pass muster as a mechanic, storeman and petrol pump attendant he became a junior salesman. He has had a lifelong association with Bristol cars with interludes selling Ferraris and other inferior Italian marques before returning to the fold in the mid 2000’s.
BODA is very fortunate to have talked Richard into coming along to entertain us with tales from the old days and he has also promised not to talk for too long. His reputation for droning on is legendary……”
The venue is the Cheltenham Chase Hotel and the cost including the formal dinner is £165.00 per couple directly bookable with the hotel on a non-cancellable basis and to be paid on arrival (Single occupancy is £125.00).
- Meet up for a road run on Saturday. We are planning to start from the Chase Hotel car park about 11am. We will send further details in about a weeks time but plan to finish at Slimbridge wetlands centre where there is good parking and a nice cafe for lunch.
- Evening meal with guest speaker
- AGM Sunday before chatting over coffee and a sandwich and heading home.
We hope to see you at the full event or just the AGM Sunday morning.
