Rally No. 1 at Meadow View, Wyre Piddle,
At long last the 16th April has arrived and the start of the Rally year is with us.
We arrive at Meadow View in the Cotswolds to be greeted with a couple of days rain,
a very squashy rally field and much talk about the Marshalls getting stuck in the mud! Not to be disheartened we patiently awaited the lovely weather forecast for the following few days and we were not disappointed. The middle of the week saw beautiful sunshine and really high temperatures which we were all quick to take advantage of with a game of boules.
The rainy start meant we all got together under the new pagoda to play 5 Crowns Card Game and also as suggested by one of our new members, Bingo, and a number of other games all of which were enjoyed by all.
We were all pleased to welcome four, yes I said FOUR new units on this Rally, three of which have joined and we look forward to seeing them at future rallies later in the year. Unfortunately, one couple felt we were not active enough for their needs and decided not to join us. (Not too clear about their expectations!!) However, it was good to meet them and we learned a few new games for a future rainy day.
During our stay at Wyre Piddle visits have been made to Pershore, Evesham and Worcester and I suspect even further afield and a good number of lovely pubs were visited for lunches and dinners.
Today we are all homeward bound and our thanks for a lovely rally go to Sue and Allan and their assistants Averil and Roy. A great start to our rally season.
The next rally will be at Denver and Len and myself look forward to seeing many of your there.
