2020 Annual Rally Sparsholt Cancelled

Postby Steven.Carter » Mon May 18, 2020 7:49 pm

I'm guessing you all knew this was coming, I suppose I clung on to some hope that things would improve but clearly now even if things do get better, holding the rally with all the social distancing wouldn't make the rally very enjoyable. And even more importantly it would be so difficult for our overseas members to come and join us. It's an international rally after all it wouldn't be the same without you. I've spoken with Sparsholt College today and with a fair wind we'll get the same weekend next year.


Hey, I preparing for a solo Annual in my back garden instead.

Blummin heck. Sad to hear this but I guess it was inevitable. Keep up the good work Steve Crankcase.

Hi Steve, all,
I guess it was inevitable :cry:

But remember the Monty Python Song 'Always look on the bright side of life..........' The important thing is that we are all well and hopefully able to carry on and do it next year! Things could be very much worse.

I glad that the venue is being held for next year and so we have something to look forward to. I appreciate that a lot of work has gone into this and thankfully it will not be in vain.

keep well everyone; let's continue to keep in touch!

I think its the only thing to do. The VMCC have canceled most of they're events this year to. Sad as the weather I bet will be like last years.
