NEVER RALLIED BEFORE?
HERE IS A GUIDE OF WHAT TO EXPECT……
WHAT IS A EVENT?
A Event is a gathering of Caravan Club Members who enjoy weekends away with fun and fellowship thrown in for good measure, these are often run on fields or school playgrounds, therefore there is not electric hook-up, however for a normal weekend rally the caravan batteries are normally sufficient to run the electrics in the caravan, some of our ralliers invest in solar panels to boost the battery over the course of the rally. Rallies are organised by:-
THE EVENTS OFFICERS / MARSHALLS
Your Events Officers / Marshalls aren’t officials like traffic wardens, but friendly faces to meet you when you arrive and who have arranged the weekend for you to enjoy as you wish, exploring the area or joining in any activities that may have been arranged. The choice is yours.
HOW TO BOOK INTO AN EAST SUSSEX EVENT
You will find details of all the events in your East Sussex Rally Book these have a summary of how the Events Officers / Marshalls are hoping to entertain you, the price of the event, directions on how to find the site, and most importantly the Event Officers / Marshalls contacts for booking into Events, in the centre pages there are event slips for this purpose. Or you can book on through this website.
Unless told otherwise please try to book into events at least 14 days prior to the event.
(This helps the Event Officers / Marshalls when working out numbers for catering.)
However if you miss the 14 day deadline – don‘t despair – contact the Event Officers / Marshalls there is normally room for more.
WHAT TO DO
After you have booked into your event and the weekend arrives just follow the directions printed in the Events Book or website. As you approach the event field you will see small directional signs with ESCC on them to help you find the entrance. On arrival you will find the Events Officers / Marshall waiting at their units, marked ‘Rally Office’, you will then be given a programme for the weekend and shown to your pitch. The field is marked out with ample space between caravans for your awning and your car. You will be told where the fresh water tap and elsan disposal points are.
East Sussex event usually include a social on Saturday night which is a family event (the cost for this is extra, but never very much) sometimes a disco, fancy dress, quiz or just a DIY barbecue (to book entertainment fill in the back of your rally slip). Your weekend often includes competitions or games for children and adults alike. All these are entirely optional, but are always good fun.
You may have heard of strange goings on around the flagpole, but don’t be alarmed because this is also a social event and is where you and your fellow attendees gather to hear results of competitions, draw the raffle, welcome visitors and new attendees, announce forthcoming events and, hear centre news and most importantly thank the Events officers / Marshall
