Rudson Rally 2014

There were 15 vans, one of which was on a rally for the first time. They were Martin and Chris Gammage, hopefully we all made them feel welcome and part of the “Gobur Family”.

David and Christine and their assistants Maurice and Helen Clare warmly welcomed us to Thorpe Hall with a lovely cuppa.

We had a welcome coffee evening on Wednesday and there after we met each morning in the games room. The majority of the group joined Sir Ian McDonald’s son on Saturday morning on a guided tour of the estate to see the cowslips and wild orchids. The consensus of opinion was that he was knowledgeable, well versed on the subject and very interesting. On Saturday evening we all gathered in the village hall to eat and have some fun. Some of us were introduced to a “Gobur Drive” which caused great hilarity and interspersed at the same time with quiz sheets. All in all it was very successful and made for an enjoyable evening.

Rudston is a great starting point to go walking, bird watching, boat trips, visiting historic buildings and gardens. One couple actually finished the last 10 miles of the Cleveland Way which they had been trying to finish for the last 5 years, 11 months and 1 day. The most sought after bird was the Puffin some of us were luckier than others to get glimpses of them.

The weather was unbelievable every day sunshine and even when the forecast said rain we had sunshine. Mary ran the raffle as usual, even though she was still recovering from knee surgery and was still in a lot of pain, she raised 85 towards Richard’s charities. The raffle was drawn on Sunday morning along with the results of the quiz which was won by Terry and Dorothy Windsor.

On Wednesday morning we all said our good byes, hitched up and departed to our different parts of the country having had a wonderful time, with thanks to David, Christine, Maurice and Helen for a job well done.
