Annual Rally 2023?
« on: November 11, 2022, 02:23:44 PM »
Hi Thumpeteers

Anyone know if we are planning an annual rally for next year? I have a really crap track-record for organisation, but I just wondered what people think. It would be nice to get together again as it is always a laugh where TC members and guests get together.

ive been in the katana club since it started, every spring we held an annual rally in manchester, but a few years ago someone had the bright idea of holding our annual rally at someone elses rally, so now we all go to the nabd rally at knutsford, it costs us about 25 quid each but then we dont have to book a site a band a bar toilets generators or any of the myriad of other things involved in a rally, then on sunday, you just all go back home, no breaking down the site or faffing round. it worked so well that weve been doing it now for 5 years. worth thinking about.

Hi John

I've never thought of that option before, but it does make sense. I know the VMCC join with the scooter people for race weekends as it splits costs for everyone.

The Harley Riders Club GB do a cracking rally at the Kirkby Lonsdale Rugby Club in July which I have attended a couple of times. Really nice group of people and none of the type who just have an HD for show. Also there must be other clubs people know about who would be compatible with TC bikes and people.

A bit of exploring gets my vote.

I think Steve D invited all us thumpers to his Ecky Thump rally in September didn't he? I didn't go because I was in Italy with Mrs Frog at the time. I don't know if any thumpers went?

I'd be happy to organise a camp site again, just need some idea of dates that suite people and possible locations. Maybe Dent again?

Hi Pete

I'd forgotten about Steve D's offer so thanks for the reminder. Thanks also for offering to book a campsite, very generous. Speaking for myself Dent would be good and any date when we might just get a bit of warm, dry weather suits me.

Thanks.
