THIS INFORMATION WILL BE AVAILABLE TOWARDS THE END OF DECEMBER
Welcome to the 2018 rally programme. Whether you are new to rallying or an old hand, please take some time to read through the sections giving guidance on what you can expect at rallies and what is expected of you. Changes have been made to the Code of Conduct, some quite recently, and everyone needs to be aware of these to achieve conformity. I hope that you will find within these pages a rally to interest and inspire you to come along and join us. There are around 60 rallies for you to choose from in various parts of the country. Many of these rallies follow on, keeping the travelling costs between rallies to a minimum. You will see these rallies listed as such in the summary.
If you have not rallied with us before, why not pop along and see who we are and what we do? I can assure you that you will have a great time and make new friends.
One of the highlights of this year is the 25th Anniversary Rally at Doncaster Racecourse in April, another is the Cheltenham AGM rally in November, both with live entertainment.
There are many new locations and a number of overseas rallies in this year’s programme. The overseas rallies are usually announced in the Autumn edition of the club magazine and on the website and are usually filled shortly after announcement.
Don’t forget to check this website and the club magazine for any rally updates and additional rallies that may have been arranged after publication of this handbook. Your rally reports and photographs will be welcomed in the magazine or on the website picture gallery.
Please read the rally booking instructions to ensure you understand the changes with regard to rallies that require deposits, and display your 2018 Silver windscreen sticker when you attend rallies.
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Sally Boswell for the immense amount of time and hard work she has put into formatting this handbook and John Cleave for the artwork. Last, but not least, Glen Perkins, your Rally Co-ordinator and the many hardworking and enthusiastic rally stewards. Without them, there would be no rallies. Thank you all.
My best wishes to each and every one of you. Hope to see you on the rally field.
The Board are aware that some people have expressed concern over their ability to get booked onto foreign rallies.
As you will know, news of those foreign rallies which take place early in the year appear in the magazine as and when details are finalised. This is because it would be too late to leave it until the Rally Book comes out in December.
Each rally steward makes every effort to ensure that as many members as possible receive this information at the same time, thus giving an equal opportunity to all to book a place.
The magazines are all posted out at the same time, as are the Rally Books, but it is then out of our hands as to when you can read it – for example, you may be away when your magazine or Rally Book arrives. If that should happen you could always get details from our web page as this is updated promptly with the same details, always assuming you have access to the internet. If you do not, you may be able to get online at your local library.
It is probably a compliment to all those who steward foreign rallies that they prove so popular and book up quickly but sadly it inevitably means that some people may be left disappointed.
