Chris,
I was speaking to Bertie this morning he's looking into it tonight and will get back to you.

What all are you hoping to bring as well as the last 1594?

I just hope this showery weather were getting passes by next weekend, I dont want to see the umbrellas up every half hour. :)

Darren.

Just bring your tractor on the day and there is a place in the field to book in,
There was another rally recently that unless vehicles were entered by a certain date they were not allowed in, it was a shame to see well restored tractors and cars parked outside the rally field and plenty of room left in the tractor area.

Are there any more Sharna pedal David Browns that could be brought, Im bringing mine and know another man that has one from he was 6 years old is bringing it
