RALLYING WITH LINCOLNSHIRE CENTRE
The Lincolnshire Centre would be very pleased to welcome you to any of our rallies. Our rallies are simply a gathering of Caravan Club Members for a weekend or longer to promote friendship and enjoy our common interest -
spending time away in our caravan or motorhome.
The programme is arranged by the Centre Officers and Committee and the rallies are run by members (as Marshals) - all of whom are volunteers, giving up their time for the enjoyment of others.
Hopefully the programme is designed to suit all tastes, with adult and children’s sports, walking, socials, fishing, indoor games, volley ball, dances, wine tasting (except we don’t spit it out) bowls, themed rallies (such as the bonfire), dinner dance and teenage rallies as well as combining with many local village events, i.e. agricultural shows, national events, and flower festivals plus raising money for charities and hospices, in many cases we become part of the local community if only for the weekend.
The Rally Marshals are ordinary Centre members who have volunteered their time to organise and run rallies, which includes signing the approach to the field and arranging an itinerary for our entertainment. Rallies can be free and easy get aways or may include a social evening or dance, competitions or sports activities, all of which you may join in, or of course, you may do your own thing.
How do I book onto one of these rallies you may ask? Look through our on-line Rally Book or the individual rally pages on our website. If you see something you like - click the on-line booking button.
When you go to the rally, follow the directions provided and when you are near the site you will see our directions signs which are reflective ORANGE with LINCS CC in black lettering. As you enter the site you will see the Rally Marshal’s caravan which will have a Rally Marshal sign beside it.
Please stop by their caravan and introduce yourselves. They will hand over an envelope that will contain a letter of welcome, the itinerary, any competitions and a rally plaque showing that you attended the rally.
You will then be shown to your pitch for the weekend by the Rally Marshal. Please draw the offside front corner of the caravan/motorhome to the marker peg. Then it is normal practice to park your car on the offside of your caravan, which allows everyone to have easy access to their vans. You will also be advised on the location of the drinking water tap and the Elsan Disposal Point, both of which will be signed. Please do not use the drinking water for the cleaning or charging of your toilet. Waste water can be disposed of around the hedgerows unless told otherwise. Dry rubbish should be taken home unless advised by the Rally Marshal.
During the weekend (if attending) the Chairman or a Committee member will call on you to welcome you to the Lincolnshire Centre and to your first rally. They will tell you about the flag meeting which normally takes place towards the end of the rally. This is a time when we gather together and over a tea or coffee, wish our first time ralliers and visitors a warm welcome, thank our Rally Marshals, give out details of future events and results of any competitions and draws.
Please come and join us, we are sure it will be the first of many enjoyable rallies.
