    We've never been to a motorhomefun rally. Do you have to book? What goes on there? We're on the elderly side (but not old acting I don't think) - would we fit in?

    Hi June, most of us are either retired or approaching retirement. What happens at a rally, well anything you want to within reason, it is a chance for a chin wag, put faces to names make new friends, meet old ones, Have a drink, BBQ whatever takes your fancy, there is usually a hospitality tent when people congregate in the evenings. Some funster are musicians others like me just bash a guitar whilst you all sing. Sometime there is Karaoke. Not had bingo yet. Sometimes a prize draw. There may be a specific reason for the rally, a show, bring and buy, or even my 12V seminar next week. Some people mix some don't, no rules, no pressure. Just chill and enjoy. Often held in an interesting area with lots to explore and can just make a cheap base for a holiday. dogs usually welcome, not many children about but sometimes a few. What else can I say, get your name down. Some you pay on arrival others you pay up front to the organising body. I will warn you like fun, rallies are addictive. Watch out for details on the winter rally in Portugal next year.

    Hello June, first of all look down the forums column, then scroll down rallies, have a look at any that take your fancy some you book some you don't need to.

    No matter what age at a fun rally you are always made welcome, just say hello, look at the notice board what is on and join in, it is such a friendly and diverse group with fun, we always try and get to a couple of rallies a year with them.

    Take the plunge join in and enjoy.

    Sounds lovely. We're quite sociable although I'm not great on bingo. But do enjoy meeting new people for a bit of a chat. I think I saw a rally in November? Will be free from October onwards. Look forward to meeting you all. Do we have to book or can we just turn up?

    Don't think I fancy a Goth weekend! Have UNfond memories of a daughter who was a goth in her teens - everything black and dripping with skull ornaments! I'll look out for other rallies.
