Pickering, Yorkshire Rally 2012

Rally organisers were David & Margaret Bray ably assisted by Margaret & Alan Shankster at the Vale of Pickering Caravan Park at Allerston, near Pickering.  The site and facilities proved to be excellent as usual, the only disappointment was the weather which dogged most of the rally with rain, even hailstones! 

 David started the rally on Thursday evening with an introduction on what was planned  for the next five days. It was a chance to break the ice and meet new members. With the adverse weather we luckily had the loan from Joyce and Norman of their frame tent which we  all squeezed into so it was quite intimate!   

On Saturday evening we gathered into the Alliston village hall after getting a soaking with the lashing rain getting there and were treated to excellent fish & chips obtained from Thorpe le Dale fish & chip shop at a very reasonable price. To add some fun we played a 'Tractor Drive' where, on the frantic throwing of a dice, you had to assemble a tractor and trailer together in the shortest time. Prizes were given to the winner and the person with the lowest score. 

Sunday saw the drawing of the charity raffle arranged by Mary which raised 53 which will go towards a charity chosen by Gobur Caravans. 

Monday evening meal was held at the nearby Providence Inn and we were treated to a really excellent meal and all thanked the rally organisers for their efforts in making this a memorable rally and get together, which is what rallying is all about.     

We all departed the following day having renewed friendships and made new ones, only one hope might be improved weather in future, better luck next time!
