    RUTLAND GATHERING
    CHANGE OF VENUE
    We had a bombshell dropped on us this afternoon. Unfortunately, the access into the field at Rutland where we were to hold our meet has been damaged, beyond immediate repair, by a caravan rally held there recently. Because of the all the rain, it hasn’t dried out enough for us to use. The owner gave us the news today that we could not use it.
    The Marshalls have been scouring the area for an alternative site, do not fear, we have found an alternative only 2 miles from Rutland. The new site has toilets/showers/shop /cafe on site. It will be held in their rally field. Still only £6.00 per night. So let the fun begin.
    The new location is: Wing Hall, Wing, Oakham. LE15 8RQ. Access is via A6003. Take a turn off this road in Preston towards Wing.

    Well done on last minute organisation... Glad it is not a total loss.

    Nice Job.

    I just hope everyone gets this in time.

    Are we actually at Wing hall or at the Caravan and Camping club site just up the road. Just looking at it on google maps.

    I've just ridden from Glasgow. Before Tebay I was well drenched, so stopped and bought a piece of their finest beef. Conslation prize.

    A bit later I was almost drowned near the Thellwall Viaduct. Traffic down to 30 mph and my well protected ( you'd better this ), body was wet to my knickers. It was like riding in a lake.

    It's pretty obvious HE is telling us we should never have crawled out of the water.

    Many thanks for the info & for going to the trouble of arranging a new venue.

    Have to say I was getting worried about continuing on to Rutland as it is so wet. The ground here in Nottinghamshire is sodden.


    Hope to see you all Sunday.

    Seriously though, many thanks to all involved with the alternative venue. Great stuff. :thumb:

    Cheers,

    We will be getting to the site early afternoon - you are more than welcome to arrive later in the afternoon, as long as you understand that you may have to move once all the pitches have been marked out.

    Another pair of hands wouldn't go amiss anyway.

    Might see you tomorrow then. Safe travels.

    Yes a BIG Thank you from us for going the extra (2) mile and finding us all a new venue at such short notice.

    Q. Will the itinerary still be the same, or has this now changed. Due to lack of Barn: for Stuff4Sale, faith table etc.,

    They may have a Glenbervie Farm barn as they had a barn dance advertised in the Link.
    the funny thing is on seeing the picture of the hall Ray has a Deja Vu experience of having been there.
    He has done this before in germany and different places and can say what is around the corner :Eeek:

    We have our event shelters plus 3 marquees and will try and keep the itinerary as was. We'll improvise if we have to. But we all know the weather will be good enough to hold these things in the sun.:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    A big thank you

    To a wonderful team, very well done, :shout:
    Please don't forget you promised the sun, :Wink:
    We're sure when there we will all have fun. :Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:
    Keep taking the tablets and we will not tell. :Eeek:
    When all's finished it will go well. Promise!!! :thumb::thumb::thumb:

    Anyone who went to Peterborough expecting the worse
    Put in your flippers instead of your curse.
    You must, you must, enjoy the rain
    Or this team will never invite you again. :Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Travel safe

    Two Questions

    Having looked at the pictures of the link is this rally field on the flat or as the picture shows it is down hill / also the grass looks rough and long (i.e I am thinking of wheelchair and power chair use)

    second question is they say they do not put up with noise.... so what is the situation regarding the RV's and generators and our get together in our tent?

    I know a lot of work has been done to get a replacement... but I am holding fire until I am sure it we will not be stopped using the gennys' and I know I can move about.

    Bob
