Rallying updates

I have been looking into doing a short term rally for mhfacts, and one venue has arisen in Exmoor, Its a Public House with attached restaurant, they serve real ales and have a nice field next to the inn itself. The facilities that look like being on offer are fresh water and maybe a waste disposal point (But maybe not for chemical toilets only sogs etc)

They also have a skittle alley.

There would probably be a small cost of say 2-3 per MH, a meal would be available from the restaurant menu on Saturday that an extra fee would apply.

I am just trying to canvas opinion as to whom could make it etc

It would be sometime in the next 7-8 weeks hopefully Friday/Saturday but the Inn owner would be open to people turning up earlier and leaving later etc.

Please answer the survey on the main page so i can try and see how many people would be interested.

last minute info, i mistakenly stated in the newsletter that the rally will be in the field next to the inn, it is in fact a disused car park, so would be hardstandings for all

Well I'm not sorry I can't be there - I'll be in the Caribbean!

Decided not to take the van on account of only having a week off work. On the upside, we're going all-inclusive to Antigua, so it's not ALL bad...

Do enjoy Exmoor won't you?

Rally Information - Who IS coming?

Hi

I see from the poll on the front of the site that 7 people have indivated that they will be coming to the Meet in May on Exmoor.

I would really appreciate it if those that WILL be coming could email me direct at [email protected] to let me know who you are, what you will be in etc.,

I can then contact you direct should I need to at all.

The Landlord has said that he would be happy if people wished to stay a few days either side of the meet/rally on the site, obviously you would need to pay him direct.

The fee for the nights you stay will be payable in cash upon arrival.

I can provide information on what is available in the area to see/do if you wish, or if you let me know what sort of things you are interested in, I can find out for you.

I look forward to receiving information from anyone able to attend, it would be really nice to put faces to names.

See you in May

Carol

This sort of rally sounds really great. Sadly we can't go anywhere 'til July. I like the sound of it because it isn't 'big' or 'over-organised' - small and ad hoc suits us better.

Perhaps a regular calendar of rally venues would allow most of us the opportunity to attend a rally almost any week we choose. For instance, would The Sportsman on Exmoor be available for, say, a weekend each month? We'd only need four or five more good venues like this around the country, and we'd have a full years' rally programme! (Better than some of the established clubs!)

So, we've got (potentially) one venue in the West Country - all we now need is perhaps Shropshire/mid Wales, East Anglia area, North York moors area and Scottish Borders and the whole country's covered. Can you explain how you approached the licensee of The Sportsman, Carol? How amenable was he, and how much persuading did you need to do? The fact that he's prepared to let units stay longer either side of the weekend is excellent - it makes long journeys worthwhile. Maybe some kind of 'proforma' to introduce us to potential hosts would be in order?

My motorcycle club does something similar to this, in that they have regular evening meeting venues all over the country for the various regions. I know that, wherever in the country I am, I can show up at a friendly venue for a meeting with 'like minds' on almost any week of the year.

Maybe this is a good direction for this super "club" of ours to go? What do all of you out there think?
