This now gives us change to set the field on Thursday. And yourselves to move in from 09-00 on Friday 5th. June.
We are in contact with the Lechlade Lion’s, who will look after the road way and parking. Also they have offered the use of their mini bus for Saturday night to go into Lechlade and on round to the Trout Inn (on the road to Faringdon),
to their evening’s entertainment.
As the Trout Inn activity weekend falls on the same weekend as our rally, we are promoting them and they are doing the same for us.
Some of you who read this could well be going to their event as you have done in the past.
So how about a road run to us and like wise, our Exhibitors in the evening go to the Trout Inn and join in their road run on Saturday night.
Passes and final info/instructions will be posted mid may 2015.
All the best, for 2015. Ray, Chairman and Your Committee. Rob/Trish/Margaret.
