 Rutland Rally 2017

The Rally was well attended with 12 Vans and their Happy Gobur Owners + 4 four legged friends.

The Rally started on Thursday with hot sunshine to welcome all - sadly this was not to last as heavy rain came overnight and off and on for the next 2 days – with big puddles around we understood why this was Rutland Water!. The weather did not dampen our spirits and we were rewarded with the return of hot sun for the rest of the Rally.

The area is wonderful for walking, scenic villages and pubs, plenty to do and see. The campsite is one of the best, well-kept grounds and with showers to die for.

Our hosts, Clare & Phil assisted by Mick and Erica arranged a Social Evening on Saturday in the local village hall. Tastings of local cheeses, chutney and the famous Melton Mowbray Pork Pie. Games of Horse Racing, won by Ivor Jones and Micks ‘Quiz’ – against the clock!! – many of us falling at the first hurdle of putting our names in the wrong box – kept us all entertained.

The Rally Quiz – on a car theme – was won by Steve Darke

The Evening Meal at the local Golf Club was enjoyed by all and a vote of thanks to our hosts given by Keith Wright.. – This concluded a fantastic Rally!
