CLUB COMPETITIONS AND AWARDS
DORAL PHOTOGRAPHIC SHIELD
This shield, kindly donated by Alan and Doreen Hewitt, will be awarded during the AGM Rally. Each entrant must submit two photographic prints, maximum size 8” x 10” (200 mm x 250 mm). These can be mounted together if you wish and a caption can be added. The photos will be judged by the Ralliers, as a pair. At least one photo has to have been taken during an Auto-Trail rally, though not necessarily on the rally field. Entries are limited to one per member (not per van). You can enter this competition even if you do not attend the AGM rally by sending your entries to the rally stewards. See AGM Rally for full details.
CONCOURSE D’ELEGANCE TROPHY
This trophy is judged by personnel from Auto-Trail at the annual Factory Rally, and is awarded for the best presented motorhome. Entrants should notify the Rally Steward on arrival.
TOP RALLIER TROPHY
This trophy, kindly donated by Alan and Margaret Stewart, will be presented at the AGM to the member who has attended the most Auto-Trail club rallies during the previous calendar year*. It will be necessary to spend a minimum of two nights on site to qualify.
Special rally plaques will be awarded to those members who have attended at least 12Auto‑Trail club rallies* during the previous calendar year.
SPECIAL RALLY PLAQUES
When you have attended 100 rallies (or 200, 300, 400 etc!) you will be entitled to a special Rally Plaque to celebrate the occasion. Please indicate on your rally booking slip if you have reached one of these magic figures.
TEN AND TWENTY YEAR PLAQUES
Members who have completed ten or twenty years in the club will be written to by the Membership Secretary to ask whether they would like to receive a special plaque commemorating their years of membership.
RALLY STEWARDS AWARD
We have introduced an award to stewards who have run 25 or more rallies. Without our hardworking band of volunteer stewards, the rest of us would not have the opportunity to meet as a club and share friendship and experiences together.
This award is to recognise the enormous contribution that our rally stewards make. This is not based on length of service, but on unselfish stewardship for others.
* Rally attendance figures are compiled by the Treasurer from rally stewards’ returns.
