The Club will be represented at all the following events,
which we have tried to arrange as geographically separate as possible. In this way, we
hope that the maximum number of people will find an event not too far away from them.
Please call the club's organiser shown to arrange passes rather than just turn up on the day. If
you want to organise a club presence at any further shows, this is most welcome, but
please let me know so that this page can be updated and thus more
potential attendees notified.
Please note that the Club's organiser
is just that - the organiser of this club's presence
- not the overall event organiser.

Midlands Rally 2008
The West Midlands Rally for 2008 is
at the Sandwell Valley Country Park, West Bromwich, on the 13th,
14th & 15th June.
Although this park is situated on
the edge of what was once called 'The Black Country' the visitor
will be pleasantly surprised at how very green it is. There are 2000
acres of woodland, lakes and open farmland to explore, with the
farm, shop and a cafe to visit - and all this in the heart of the
Camping is allowed, which is on a
nice secluded part next to the area for our cars.
Entry forms and leaflet from Alan
Withey, 0121 744 6414.

Deer Park, Charlecote House forms the stunning backdrop for this year's
International Rally. The event will start on Friday evening, but members
can join at any time from then onwards up until Sunday lunch. On Friday
there will be a short circular roadrun to a pub serving good barmeals,
with excellent parking and lots of time to catch up with old friends, or
to make new. On Saturday we will gather at Charlecote before setting off
on a longer circular country run, over mainly unclassified roads, at a
pace to suit all our cars. The destination will be a place of interest
and lunch will be available. In the evening we have arranged for a
buffet meal to be served in the Orangery at Charlecote House.
Discounted rooms are
available at the "Charlecote Pheasant", adjacent to the park.
Alternatively there are camping facilities close by, or bed and
breakfasts in the Stratford, Leamington or Warwick areas.
Sunday as usual will be
the main rally day, with the cars parked outside Charlecote House. The
cars will gather along both sides of the main drive shown in the
picture, in full view of the visitors to the house. There will be
concours judging to identify the favourite cars. Members are invited to
bring spares to sell or swap and other autojumblers will be invited to
attend. There will be the opportunity to tour the House. There will be a
raffle and later there will a prizegiving with a procession of the

18th - Saturday 23rd August 2008
Hotel, Llandrindod Wells.
This is a multimarque
rally that has been running for close on 30 years. It's designed for
people who like to use there cars, no standing about in damp Rally
fields, and there is an emphasis on good food, wine and
conversation. All Standards qualify and a number of Standard owners
attend regularly. Last years rally was one of the very best, for we
were blessed with wall to wall sunshine, completely empty roads and
mountain passes, a string of interesting places to visit in mid
Wales and the good company of friends and fellow enthusiasts. The
rally was so successful that the venue will be repeated in 2008.
To enter, you need to
book five nights accommodation (d,b&b) at the 120-room Metropole
Hotel, Llandrindod Wells. This is a 3 star venue with newly
refurbished rooms, excellent food and a Leisure Centre. Mention the
"Friends of Llangollen Rally" to qualify for their
corporate rates. Then advise John or Rhiannon Howells on 01443
432542 of your intention to attend. Other accommodation options are
available in the area.
I can not recommend
this event highly enough to you. Lynda and I both thought this the
motoring highlight of 2008, and we look forward to seeing you there.
