Burnham Carnival.

Due to unforeseen circumstances the above rally due to be run over the weekend 29th Sept - 1st October at Bovill Uplands Farm has been cancelled and as a result South Essex will be unable to enter a float into the Carnival.


The rally at the Copper Kettle Field is running, so you will still be able to enjoy the Carnival and all that goes with it.

Hunstanton Holiday Rally

Well done to everyone that attended the Hunstanton Holiday Rally. 

A donation of £510 was given to the RNLI Hunstanton. This money was raised mainly by selling tickets for the raffle (all prizes were donated by the ralliers) and by Sid having a sponsored shave, which raised over £50.

Thank you to John and Margaret Mack and their assistants for a wonderful rally.

Please see pictures on the web.

Please also be reminded that if the winning number has not been sold then the next taken number up will be deemed as the winner (the next number up from 59 being number 1), thus ensuring a winner every time.

Rally Marshals Paperwork

It may appear that the Rally Marshals Paperwork in Excel Format is no longer available to download from the Website, however they can be accessed via a zip file, the first option on the Rally Marshal Page. This is because of Microsoft Changes, in that you can no longer run an excel programe straight from a Website (unless the Website has been approved by Microsoft). I hope this is helpful. DAVID MILLS, Rally Secretary.
