CURRENT WEATHER STATUS (2021): RALLY IS ON!!
It is, as you would now expect, not going to be possible, to hold our Rally, over the 3 day Bank holiday weekend in May.
However, we are a Rally that is in a very strong & fortunate position...the organisers own the ground and as such we have much greater flexibility and our 2021 plans will continue to stay fluid and hopeful.
So many other rallies, have so very unfortunately, had to wipe out another year but we are ever hopeful that the latter half of 2021, may bring some much needed light relief from these awful... but very necessary lock down restrictions and offer us an opportunity to put a show together. It may not be our usual format, or our usual layout but if anything at all is possible .....such as static displays, Trade stands, Road runs.... we WILL do it.
Obviously at this stage, we all have to patiently wait and see how the year unfolds but we would ideally be looking towards the end of August, or sometime during the month of September, as possible options but will know better by early summer how things are developing within the country and if any normality is slowly returning. Let’s all hope so.
