A Rally is a gathering of Caravan Club members who enjoy weekends away with fun and fellowship thrown in. Your rally officers will be the people who have organised the weekend and will be the friendly faces that greet you when you arrive.
To book your first rally, fill in one of the slips in the centre of your Rally Book, or print off a copy from the Website and post it (with a deposit), to the named rally officer. Don't forget to fill in all the details requested on the slip. If you have to cancel for any reason, please do contact the Rally Officer and inform him/her as soon as possible.
Travel and Arrival
When your Rally weekend or holiday arrives, follow the directions in the Rally write-up, which will guide you to the vicinity of the Rally. When you are close to the site, you will see the orange Dyfed Centre signs (refer to Page 16 of your Rally Book for details) at the side of the road. These will guide you into the site. On arrival, you will find the Rally Officers waiting for you at the Rally Office. This will normally be the first caravan inside the site and will be marked with the 'RALLY OFFICER' sign. Once you have booked in, you will be handed an envelope containing the programme for the weekend, sometimes a competition. The Rally Officer will show you to your pitch where you will be requested to park with the front offside corner of your caravan on the marker and to park your car on on the offside of your caravan. You will be shown where the fresh water tap is and the elsan disposal point.
Your weekend may also include competitions or games for the children and adults alike. All these activities are entirely optional, but are always good fun. Usually on Saturday afternoon or Sunday morning, Flag will be held. This is a meeting of all the Ralliers to hear the results of competitions, to welcome you as a new Rallier and any visitors, to announce forthcoming events and Rallies, hold the weekend slip draw, sweets for the children and most importantly to thank the Rally Officers for organising and running the weekend.
What You Need
To be a Rallier, you will require all the usual equipment plus a few extras. You must have your own toilet facilities, which must never be taken near the fresh water tap. You will also require a few blocks of wood for levelling your caravan on sloping fields and a dustbin liner to take your dry waste home with you, if required to do so.
Please do not arrive earlier than the time stated in the Rally write-up. There is always a good reason for the opening time stated by the Rally Officer. Always take a look at your map against the location details provided in the Rally write-up. This can save you a lot of time and frustration later on, especially if you are arriving in the dark.
Please, do come along and see what it's all about. We look forward to meeting you.
