Annual Rally 2021
« on: July 22, 2021, 02:58:00 PM »
I've just had a chat with Timbo and Steve D. Is there any interest in an annual Rally this year, maybe 1st weekend in September to avoid school hols. Thinking about somewhere in the Welsh Borders to make it easier if any of the Dutch lads want to come over.

Let me know if interested and if there's enough interest I'll come up with a plan.

Hi all, can't make that weekend as we are doing a classic car tour of Wales, but would like to pop in for a chat if we're in the area.
I was going to do the tour with Pat on a bike, but one member took pity on me and is loaning me a car. ::)
Dave.

Would love to attend but unfortunately it's difficult getting away at the moment

Hi Tony, Tim's explained a bit about your situation, so I totally understand. I've been there myself and there's nothing nice or easy about it. All the best, Pete

I've managed to book us in at The Powis Arms, Lydbury North, Shropshire, SY7 8AU for the weekend of 3rd - 5th September. We will have exclusive use of the overflow camping field. There are 4 porta loo's on the overflow field, but obviously we will also have access to the main toilet and shower block as well. The cost is £7 per night payable to the pub. They also do breakfasts, evening meals and local Shropshire ales.

They do have some B & B accommodation available too, for anyone not keen on camping, but I've no idea about room availability for those dates, you'd have to check with them directly.

I've told them I'll confirm the number of people attending by the end of August, so please let me know if you intend coming. Obviously, one or two extra won't matter, but I need to give them a ball park figure. I'll get my thinking cap on, and plan a ride out for the Saturday!

If anybody would like to get there on the Thursday (I may do!) then I'm sure that would be OK as long as you give them a courtesy call 1st.

Great, be good to see you Steve. Thanks for pointing out my deliberate error too, I wondered who'd spot it first 🤣

No problem Ian - it'll be great to see you. As I say, if you don't fancy camping then there is accommodation at the pub, or failing that there are several B & B's in Bishops Castle a few miles away.

Cheers Pete. I looked at the pub, but at 'from' £80 per night it is too rich for my pocket. I will find an available, good old Travelodge as it will be my cheapest option. Hoping to be on site Friday for a catch-up and a cuppa, then back on Saturday for a ride-out if one is planned or just another catch-up and another cuppa.

There's a B & B in Bishops Castle called 'past times' I think, which was very reasonable last time we stayed there about ten years ago. Worth checking out, may be completely different now of course...
