South Essex Centre's 2019 Rallies
(including next year's rallies that are booking this year and confirmed holiday rallies for next year)


I am pleased to be able to bring you my Rally programme for 2019. Personally I felt that the past year has gone well. A few new Venues, a few new Marshals, not many rallies cancelled, and quite a few were full. I would like to thank members for supporting the Rallies, and the Marshals who go out of their way to give others a good time. Continuing these themes I am pleased to say that once again we have a couple of new venues this year, and we are again using venues that were new to our programme last year. We also have a couple of new marshals for 2019. The Rally programme for the forthcoming year, once again features several of the old favourites, some of which are being given a new twist. We have Holiday Rallies, including one overseas, and weekend rallies with various themes. We also have a few ‘long weekend’ rallies, not just on Bank Holidays, as several members have expressed the desire and ability rally outside of the traditional weekend. The ‘National’ rally this year is being held at Ragley Hall, Warwickshire, from 24th to 28th May 2019, and I have organised a follow-on Rally just outside of Warwick, a short drive from the National. This year is our Charity Year, with the largest event being the Chairman’s Charity Rally, which will be held over the August Bank Holiday weekend. I have managed to secure the Orsett Showground for the Rally, which I am sure will be a great success.

The Orsett Showground is a venue specifically designed for such purposes, and I am sure will work well. It has excellent Access, from the M25/A13, which will not only make getting there easy for our own Centre members, but also for those who will hopefully be visiting from other parts of the country.

A lot of the last year, in committee, was spent discussing GDPR, and how we can minimise the impact that it has on running our club, in the pursuit of our mutual hobby. Everybody seems to have had a view, on what it stops us from doing. Regarding the Impact on the production of this Rally Book, we have been extremely mindful that Names, Addresses, and Phone Numbers of Marshals, not to mention committee members, are printed in this Rally Book, and as a result is available from the SECC Web Site. For this reason, I have expressly asked each Marshal to confirm if they are happy to have their details published. Where this permission has been granted I have included such details as has been agreed.  As an alternative we have the option to accept On-Line bookings only. I am hoping that this solution will minimise the impact on members booking onto a rally, whilst meeting the requirements of the new legislation.

As I stated last year, it is becoming ever more difficult to get new venues, whilst some that we have been using cease to be available to us . In the last few years I am pleased to say that some new sites have been tried, and I would encourage members to support these new venues, and the Marshals that are brave enough to take on a new venue. I would like to thank all Marshals, who have again stepped up to run rallies on behalf of us all in the coming year, on some occasions even taking care of identifying and booking the venues. Thank you to my colleagues on committee for their help in the year, and as always my greatest outpouring of gratitude goes my ever loving and supportive wife, Marion, without whose help I could not have got to this position . . . where I am pleased to present to you, YOUR 2019 Rally Programme.

Happy Reading . . . Happy Rallying
