Peakland Area hosted a Sections Forum meeting at Osmaston over the weekend of September 22-24. We camped on the Polo Ground in Osmaston and the meeting was held at Wyaston Village Hall on Saturday morning. We had an excellent turnout with 22 units camping which included 12 from the other Sections. Walks were taken on both Saturday and Sunday, also visits to the local pub on both evenings and afternoon coffee and cakes each day. The feedback from our visitors which included a past club chairman was very positive, so a pat on the back of MAS for hosting a very successful weekend.

Spirit of MAS - The winner is.....
During 2016 we ran a “Spirit of MAS” photo competition to showcase what makes the Section special. Members were asked to submit photos that reflected the Spirit of MAS theme such as taking part in a walking or cycling activity, simply relaxing on site, a spectacular landscape or sunset. The winning entry was taken by Dave Hall while attending the Northern Area Meet at Gibraltar Farm, Silverdale when he joined Queens Guide Cedric Robinson to walk across the sands of Morecambe Bay and support the Winston’s Wish charity for bereaved children. The judges were impressed by how Dave captured the reflections in the sands while showing the isolation of the group in the vast expanse of the bay. Highly commended by the judges were the competition entries submitted by Julia Frampton of Wessex Area members walking through a field of oats and the view of the Malvern Hllls from Jenny Williams snapped during the Eastnor Castle meet hosted by the Peakland Area.
