CDTEC is pleased to announce that we have just extended our contract with Rosemount Estate, thus enabling us to hold our annual working events there up to and including 2019. The new contract means that, weather permitting, we should be able to avail of the 2nd larger working field each year and this gives us the confidence to plan ahead and provide a wider range of working events for the public to enjoy in the coming years.

We look forward to continuing our working relationship with Rosemount and the Montgomery Family and hope we can also rely on your continued and valued support.

We are already starting to plan for next year so please come and see us on 8th and 9th August 2014.

			Note from the Chairman

I would like to thank all those who attended our Road Run and Rally on 9 and 10 of August. I hope you enjoyed our event – the weather was with us, the exhibits and machines in the rally field and both working fields were second to none and the event was a great success.

Many thanks also go to the club members, helpers and all those who contributed to make it happen on the day but we couldn’t have done it with you, the public, and the local community who supported us so valiantly throughout.

If you liked what you saw and want to become involved then why not think of joining our club – we have various other activities throughout the year. Just come along to one of our monthly meetings and find out more. 

Looking forward to seeing you all again next year (8th & 9th August 2014).

Pictures and links to Youtube videos of the Working Vintage Festival can be found on the 2013 Festival Pics page.
