  1. Agree with pretty much all the points raised re this year's venue - lack of toilet facilities on a site that size (regardless of there being a group of pissed-up bikers there!) was dire! We were aware that the pub owner wasn't going to be there over the weekend, but we had been assured (in person) that everything would be fine. The staff did their best and worked hard, considering they knew nothing about our social until Saturday morning. Although the pub & food were both lovely, the venue just wasn't quite right for us. Those of you who have been rallying with us for some time will be aware of just how difficult it is to find a venue that meets all our requirements - to date I think The Bull In'T Thorn (however the f**k you spell it!) has been the best. Unfortunately, due to greedy breweries, the landlords jacked it in and the pub closed, otherwise we'd have been back there again this year! Sooooo it looks like we have to find somewhere else for next year! Requirements are as follows: Camping space Electric hook up pitches Bed & breakfast rooms (minimum of 4 rooms) Dedicated function room/space All of the above, and in a fairly central location geographically, to make it accessible for as many people as possible! Some of us spend hours each year researching & visiting possible venues and it is really difficult to find exactly what we need, and we could do with some help. We would really appreciate it if you could all try and do a bit of research - the sooner the better - so we can maybe find our venue for next year and get it booked early. We did hear a rumour that The Bull In'T Thorn has reopened, so Rennie & I may go on a bit of a recce to see if said rumours are true
  2. The 17.50 per night put me off Sue I understand what you mean Stu, but I think people have to be a bit realistic - unfortunately (as we've discovered) costs have risen over the last couple of years. If we're looking for somewhere that has all the facilities onsite that we need, then the prices are going to be more.

  5. The owners have a static caravan park opposite - alternative to camping.
  6. https://www.themarlbankinn.co.uk Not sure about function room

  11. For what it's worth, I don't think B &B offsite has worked in the past. It makes the whole think rather disjointed. I feel it is just as important as a function space - what's the point of a group event if we're not together as a group?! I've looked at the Uttoxeter venue & whilst it looks a good option, it's in the middle of nowhere so no B&B close enough.
  12. I have to agree with Beefy - the social side of the Rally has to be top of my priorities. To be honest, there's not much point in a Rally without the social to bring us all together. It would just end up being little groups sitting in tents!
