Well, I asked, but I'm sorry to admit that i can't remember the exact answer!

Someone had asked for a poker run on the same day as Littlehampton, but the decision was made that it wouldn't be a good idea, as we'd all be away racing/spectating. As far as I remember June was looking likely for one, with the possibillity of a Boatmad gathering/barbeque for another date.

Keep an eye on the forum, and all will be revealed in due course!

We've given up even trying to do that! there's always some feckin club organising something, if the Poker runs were set to avoid everything, there'd never be a Poker run.

14th June is currently penciled.
