New Year Rally (This is not an ATOC Rally)
Sat 29th December to Wed 2nd January
ACCEO members are invited to this rally that will be hosted by the AAOCC club, the only requirement being that you are (or become) a personal member ACCEO at an annual cost of £5.
ACCEO members attend the last AAOCC New Year Rally and that held in the grounds of Chatsworth House in May of this year and were made most welcome.
The venue is:
Robin Hood Scout Camp Rickets Lane
There will be limited electric but hopefully enough to spread about to keep your batteries charged if not, charging facilities will be available. A £10.00 deposit is requested when booking. The cost would be £90 maximum for the duration (May be less dependent on numbers attending).
The building is only a few years old and has excellent facilities and will be open each day and evening. There will be a bring and share supper on New Year’s Eve and a Breakfast Roll on New Year’s day. There is an excellent eating pub within half a mile and lots of opportunity for walking.

We hold a database of over 400 sites where the club has rallied in the past. We have had some great rallies in good locations with many rallies running on to another rally within a reasonable distance.
Cornwall is an excellent example, runs of 3/4/5 rallies have been held in the past with Tavistock, Newquay, Falmouth, St Ives, Bude to name a few.
Other areas where we have enjoyed rallies are Bridgnorth, Oswestry, Worcester, Coventry, Stratford.
Wales is another area where we have had great rallies, Chepstow, Sully, Monmouth, and Dan Y Ogof (Show caves)
