Well they got the weather forecast right we had the rain and high winds but what a great pitch we had no problems at all parking on grass all the rain just soaked away, you needed wellies to got out in the evening to get into the club to drink the drinks on offer a few had a little problem on a few nights as you can see from the photos, but no accidents to report. The show itself was very good with plenty to see and lots of things to do, due to weather not as many stalls this year but did see a few members going around on the trains etc. hope they all enjoyed the rides, we filled our pitch again with a few gaps for the members that were put off by the weather pity about that you missed a good rally whats the old saying fair weather campers. For any member wishing to stand for election its time to give you names to our secretary John Davies please, as the A.G.M. is just around the corner. Well that will do for this time remember next rally on the 18/20 OCT. David

Well not a bad turn out again at this venue ok not the Ritz but what do you think you will get for £5 a night, no new members this time but hope you all enjoyed the rally, the room was very popular in the evening for a chat and a drink, the fair took a bit of money off some members but it was Johns cafe that took the most as nearly all had a meal or three at this lovely venue. With the sun shining, a lot of sitting out talking in the rays and enjoying the heat.
We had another new van to look at and admire, also nice to see all vans leave the venue on their own steam and not on the back of a lorry glad the member sorted the problem out. Where are we next, oh Shepton mallet show then its Pembrey steam show please will you all read the bit below and contact me as requested it could save you some money hope to see you soon David.
Well, the weather was fine the cowgirls all came so not a bad turn out at our rally, sorry about the parking nothing we could do about that this time, but will hope better next time if they want us to return again. We had a couple of new members join us for the rally hope you enjoyed and will return. I have not heard if any new vans are on order after the Malvern show will have to wait and see. Had the same problem with two male members that went up the club to watch the football on Monday night, beer a bit strong for them and no the chairman was not one of them. We had a couple of young members at the rally all hoping the grand dads and grans will take them to Barry for the fair as they were in the good books at this rally. The venue was good with all we needed to have a good time so hope you all enjoyed the rally, hope to see you all at Barry for the B/H W/E but with our web master away perhaps this will not be on our web in time, One little point to raise our rally org. is looking for new venues for next year so any ideas would help thanks David.
