Default Events for 2014.

Having completed our plans for this year we are busy planning for 2014.

Some events are "carved in stone". We will be at G.D.S.F. , South Cerney (40th), Welland (50th) ,and Old Warden.

But we always like to visit other rally's for the first time, especially anniversary rally's. This year we went to Strumpshaw and Netley Marsh for the first time.

So,what do we do next year? We don't want to go too far North, because in 2015 we plan to go to Masham (50th) and
maybe Castle Howard.

It seems that there are some good rally's in Derbyshire, also Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire.

We also would like to go to one of the rally's in Sussex.

So, any advise would be most appreciated.

Stef.

Henham, (not too far from Strumpshaw) is always a good Rally

Wiston, best rally In Sussex! If you want a rally with lots of movement and a great variety of exhibits, all in the heart of the South Downs! All Organised by a group of TT members too!

Yes, thanks all.

Wiston was one that was on our radar.

The Searle crew were promoting it at Old Warden. What about the rally at the Weald and Downland Museum?
We've seen it on DVD and it looks very good.

I say all this as a spectator, not as an exhibitor.

Stef.

Singleton was a very good rally when organised by a TT member! As was just a steam only event in a great setting, but now organised more by the museum and has less steam! If you only have one weekend, come to Wiston one day and pop in at Amberley and Singleton museums on the other day! All worthy of visits though! Tinkers Park is also a good rally beginning of June! With a railway and organ museum and lots of engine games!

Wiston gets my vote! Engines ENCOURAGED to move around and plenty of space to do so, great scenery, very friendly and steam games too Robin! Would be good to have an engine or two from further afield visiting sussex!

Fawley Hill for Lady McAlpine's 70th Birthday, best small rally I've attended in a long time in 2013.
