We are home from Newbury now and naturally the sun has come out.
It was a cold weekend but fortunately not wet, although we did have our own water feature for a short time on Saturday, but Warners quickly sorted this. We really enjoyed meeting you all, some old friends but quite a lot of new ralliers who we hope will join us again.
Many thanks to Ray & Lesley (rayc) for their assistance with the marshalling and the raffle, definitely a case of many hands make light work.
The raffle was held with proceeds being divided 50/50 between the MHF charity and The Rally Group Fund, and thanks to the hard work of Pam (ICDSUN2) in selling tickets and your generosity, both donating prizes and buying tickets, we managed to raise a total of £120. I notice Pam has already put the charities half of the money into the “Just Giving” account and I will forward the Rally Groups half to the treasurer.
You did some great pictures for the “Picture Quiz” so thanks to everyone for taking part. It was won by Dinks123, who only got one answer wrong!!!! She also celebrated a special birthday at the rally and kindly shared her cake with everyone attending the get-together on Saturday.
Fourteen teams entered the Boules Competition, which turned out to be a very close contest, with CurlyBoy being the eventual winner, so congratulations to George & Jean (CurlyBoy).
It sounds from your posts as if you enjoyed the rally so hopefully we’ll see you all again before too long.
