Dunstan Hill 2010

Quote overheard 'That was a great rally, I enjoyed every minute'. This sums up the rally run by Alan and Brenda Barnes ably helped by Dave and Jackie Atkins. 11 vans in total were on the rally at the Dunstan Hill Camping and Caravan Club site which is near the village of Embleton.

A first a Pie and Pea evening followed by some very special entertainment - Brenda singing 'My Favourite Things' but with lyrics that were more appropriate to those of a more mature age and were very amusing!. Alan did an impression of a chicken laying an egg but somehow the egg transformed into a cushion !! Pat was also brave enough to do a comic turn.

Deb and Howard Bowron and Joyce and Norman Taylor were joint winners of the quiz and after a name draw, Deb and Howard were declared winners. Both couples had left the rally early unfortunately Norman felt unwell. We all hope he is feeling much better now. Actually we could have used the extra manpower when high winds on Sunday played havoc with tents and awnings on the site and in particular our hospitality tent that was attached to Alan and Brenda's awning. Many extra guy ropes were added both outside and inside the tent to secure it (only after some tent poles were bent by the pressure of the wind). Alan and Brenda had quite a shock when they returned to the site and unzipped the tent door! A maze of guy lines awaited them which had to be negotiated before getting to their caravan. Alan commented that it was fortunate that he wasn't going to have to weave his way through the ropes in the middle of the night!

Wonderful scenery, with many castles, gardens and museums to visit in such a short stay. Beautiful beaches, harbours, delicious food to try. Brenda and Alan were great hosts and with the sunny weather (the only rain came at night), it was a lovely rally. Thank you.
