Bere Regis Rally 2016

Bere Regis Rally

We arrived two days early from a previous rally and were able to set up in warm sunshine and take a walk into the attractive village of Bere Regis, an easy walk from the site. The site itself was set amongst trees and had walks over its large area and the owners were helpful and friendly.

Over the next day or so other people arrived and the rally could begin in earnest. Unfortunatley the weather was not always kind to us - in fact it rained a great deal! However, as Gobur ralliers know, it's never the wrong weather, only the wrong clothes and we were all prepared for an English summer! We were able to use the site's games room for our evening get togethers and in spite of the weather everyone had stories of the places they'd visited during the day. It didn't rain constantly and people were able to get out and about to see the many local and not so local sights. Visits were made to Poole and Weymouth, and nearby Blandford Forum attracted quite a few ralliers. Lulworth Cove was a draw for many and certainly when we were there it was fine and we managed a picnic on the beach. The nearby village of Tolpuddle with it's Martyrs' Museum was worth a visit and of course there were intrepid walkers who took advantage of the area regardless of the weather.

Joy and Peter had arranged for us to use the games room on Saturday night for an American Supper and as usual we were never short of conversation and laughter.

We had to leave early (packing up on Monday morning during a steady downpour) but have been assured that the Monday evening meal at the Drax Arms in Bere Regis was excellent.

Despite the weather - and it certainly didn't rain all the time - it was a very enjoyable rally and Joy and Peter did their usual sterling work as organisers. Many thanks to them.
