RALLY REPORT – STOKE BRUERNE
Well didn’t we do well? We couldn’t have asked for any better weather on the rally - wall to wall sunshine every day. Now we are all back home it’s raining - can’t be bad.
Seven units attended the rally. We were all welcomed by our Marshall’s Polly & Len.
We all managed to get our units level as the field was very uneven and had some large cracks due to the dry weather of late.
Nearby, the Navigation Pub was doing a roaring trade, especially when England was playing in the ¼ finals of the World Cup. Two of our members, after watching the game in the pub, came back to site and climbed over an unlocked gate (too many sherbets)!
Barry arrived on Thursday. We were all so pleased to see him, and in fact stayed till the Tuesday.
On Saturday evening, Polly laid on cheese, grapes, celery and nibbles. Shirley & David kindly supplied Champagne. This was followed by an animal kingdom quiz which was won by Tony &Barry with a grand total of 6 half points out of twenty - didn’t they do well!
Sunday, the girls, of course, found a car boot.
Monday the girls had a trip to Rushden Lakes, a lovely shopping outlet but they were not too tired out to play Boules that evening.
Tuesday flag was held at the Navigation as Tony, Lyn, Alan &Vera were leaving the next day. Polly & Len were thanked for running the rally. The winners were announced as follows:
Quiz: Alan & Vera
Lucky van: David & Shirley
Boules: by you know who “The Champ”, yours truly.
On our final day the remaining 4 units went to the Indian restaurant up by the locks for a super meal, although spoilt by a noisy table near to us.
Many thanks to Polly & Len for returning to Stoke Bruerne and for all that they did for us.
