We are very close to having a full program for next year, however we need Marshalls for Whit Bank Holiday Rally at Ferry Meadows, Peterborough, & November 7th to 10th, Barnstones, Banbury. This venue has hardstanding, & ehu, there should be a new village Hall over the road from the site. The Ferry Meadows rally is on the rally field, Caravan Club site, nice flat field, close to garden centre,pub, golf course & steam train station. If you think you might be able to help, please let me know. These will be cancelled early in the new year if we can't get anyone to run them, as they are popular venues, and we need to be fair to other centres who may wish to use them. Thanks Gary, Rally Secretary.
Just a quick update on next year's programme, we now have a marshal for Henley on Thames (Easter Rally) and on line booking now available. We are still looking for an assistant for Stoke Bruerne, Mayday Rally. Please get in touch if you think you can help. Thanks Gary Rally Sec.
As you may know, the venue for Next years Easter Rally, Batemans Brewery had double booked, so I have rolled our booking over to 2020. I have been lucky enough to be able book Swiss Farm at Henley On Thames for next Easter, we do however need a Marshall for this Rally, as they can only hold it provisionally until the end of October. This really is a wonderful venue, good field, a short walk into Henley and stunning flying displays by the many Red Kites that live in the area. If you think you can help, please get in touch, it would be a shame not to have an Easter Rally next year. Thanks from Gary Brewin, Rally Sec.
We have a couple of taken rallies, but still require assistant marshals. One in particular is the Mayday Bank Holiday at Stoke Bruerne, Northants. Greg Clark has very kindly offered to run it, & is looking for help. If you think you can step in, or just would like some more info, please get in touch. It's a wonderful venue, large rally field and right next to the canal with its museum, pubs & walks. It would be a shame if it had to be called off. Many Thanks Gary Rally Sec.
Unfortunately we have had to change the venue for this years Last fling rally. It was to be held at Hose Village Hall but a fire means we are no longer use the hall. The rally will now be held at Copt Oak Memorial Hall. Please contact the marshal or Rally Secretary for more details.
