Foc Concours Postponed


"We've never had to do this before, but because of the never-ending rain at the venue we have had to postpone the concours event scheduled to take place at Broughton Castle this Sat/Sun. The moat has overflowed, the ground is soft and marshy, and even if it stopped raining now the groundwork contractors see no prospect of getting their machinery in to prepare the venue. The forecast continues to show rain for the next few days. It is hoped to re-schedule the event in, probably, September but we will let you know as soon as we can. Our profuse apologies, but there is no way around this. We will also contact all members via snailmail once we figure out alternative proposals."

Gutted, Al.

Al, cheers for letting us know. I can't say I'm at all surprised, this rain has been a nightmare. Looks like we'll have to put that beer off until Sept

Just had this e-mail from FOC, meeting re-scheduled for Sept 23rd



We are sorry to report that, due to the recent awful weather conditions experienced at Broughton Castle , the ground surrounding the Castle is flooded. In view of the forecast for this week (more rain) it is with regret that these circumstances, which are beyond our control, have forced us to postpone the event until 23rd September.

If you have booked party tickets, lunches or teas we will carry your booking forward unless you wish to cancel – please let us know if so.

Keep an eye on for further developments.

If you know any non members who were intending to visit, please pass on the message.

We are very sorry for the inconvenience but let’s all hope for a dry, mud free September!
