Welcome to the first Rallier report of 2016 and a Happy New Year to you. I trust that you had a good Christmas and New Year.
The club’s Christmas dinner rally was held at the Sloop Inn at Temple Hirst. The
venue was changed because of the lack of interest in going to Rufforth. It was touch & go whether the rally would go ahead because of the inclement weather. but a few members braved this and a good time was had by all, but the New Year rally was cancelled because of the inclement weather I telephoned Pat the site warden to ask what the
situation was like. She replied that the area was not flooded but the
campsite was very wet and the ground was very soft so in the view I
decided to cancel. Besides that the caravan storage yard where I keep
my caravan was not open due to the yard being flooded, and some major
roads were affected by the continuous rain.
The first rally for 2016 is a late booking which missed the Rally Venue
book. It is only a mile from Harrogate town centre. We will be camping on hard standing with electric water & elsan. It has been booked to coincide with the Harrogate Motorhome Show.
The Easter weekend rally is at Oakwortty This a good site with hard standing and electric hook ups. It is also the first member’s meeting of the year so now is your chance to come along and air your views on how the club is being run.
We have the usual again follow on rallies this year where they seem to becoming popular with the members, A couple of these have to be booked directly with the site warden.
Look carefully through your rally venue book if you are a member, it will tell you where and when to book directly with the site warden. Once you have done this then please book in with me either by slip or telephone.
This year is the club’s 10th anniversary and we will be holding a celebration rally at the Flamborough rally. It is hoped to have all the members to this rally to join in the celebrations with fun and games being planned. It is also hoped that members will come with a fancy dress costume.
The club has now got a face book page. Look at it, read what comments there is and if you want, add your own comments and photographs.
