NEVER RALLIED BEFORE?
HERE IS A GUIDE OF WHAT TO EXPECT……
WHAT IS A RALLY?
A rally 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 RALLY OFFICERS
Your Rally Officers 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 RALLY
You will find details of all the rallies in your East Sussex Rally Book these have a summary of how the Rally Officers are hoping to entertain you, the price of the rally, directions on how to find the site, and most importantly the Rally Officers contacts for booking into rallies, in the centre pages there are rally slips for this purpose. Or you can book on through this website.
Unless told otherwise please try to book into rallies at least 14 days prior to the rally.
(This helps the Rally Officers when working out numbers for catering.)
However if you miss the 14 day deadline – don‘t despair – contact the Rally Officers there is normally room for more.
WHAT TO DO
After you have booked into your rally and the weekend arrives just follow the directions printed in the Rally Book or website. As you approach the rally field you will see small directional signs with ESCC on them to help you find the entrance. On arrival you will find the Rally Officers 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 rallies 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 ralliers gather to hear results of competitions, draw the raffle, welcome visitors and new ralliers, announce forthcoming events and rallies, hear centre news and most importantly thank the rally officers.
