OCTOBER AGM RALLY AT BURLEIGH HILL FARM
ST. IVES, CAMBS.
As we set out on the last Rally of the year the sun is shining, but unfortunately this weather is not to last for long. Notwithstanding the rain it was good to be meeting up again with old friends with six vans and Richard and Susan, on a taster Rally, turning out. Not to be deterred the first night saw us all sitting round a fire pit and eating Marshmallows, if only this could last. A number of members visited St Ives the following day but the rain was back and visits to National Trust Properties and the occasional Charity Shop ensued.
The Club AGM was held on the Monday with few surprises or upsets.
Having said that it was reported that Tony had served for 10 years as an officer of the Club and Polly thanked him for all his hard work and presented him with an engraved Whiskey Glass and a bottle of 10 Year Malt. The following day was thankfully dry again and gave everyone a chance to get out and about in the morning with a game of Boules played in the afternoon with Chairman Tony the eventual winner. With the weather cold but dry it was decided to light the fire pit lit again that evening and was enjoyed by all. Many thanks to Sue and Steve for bring the fire pit and organising the evening and also thanks to the members who collected the wood.
With Percy and Linda having to leave on Friday and Len and myself away for the night to visit our Granddaughter in Great Yarmouth it was decided to have final flag on Thursday followed by games of Five Crowns and Rumicub in the little meeting room. Saturday saw awnings coming down in dry spell and many thanks to Sue and Steve and Tony and Lyn for kindly taking our awning down ready or departure on Sunday morning. What "Nice People". The remaining members then enjoyed a meal at the local Pub to wind things up.
Many thanks to Percy and Linda and Sue and Steve for a fun filled Rally.
