"These two have 'ticed me hither to this place
A barren, detested Vale you see it is."
				Act II Scene III


Act I		Enter from all sides citizens nobleman, y
		yeoman and peasants from all parts of the

Act II		Feasting and merriment much banter and
		the quaffing of copious quantities of ale,
		devouring of vast mountains of victuals,
		made available for all the period of the
		gathering by mine host of the Inn of Gaydon.

Act III		The bestowing of gifts upon the company
		present deemed worthy of such honours.

Act IV		Sleep doth overtake the gathered company
		who drift phantom-like to the encampment
		near at hand

Act V		In the swirling morning mist the throng
		melt silently away, creeping stealthily
		along the byeways to the far places whence
		they came.

Heather's famous quiz, now in its fifteenth year, appears on the next page; the answers are given on the back page. 


"We go wrong, we go wrong."
"No, yonder 'tis -
There where we see the lights"
"Here comes himself to guide you"
"Welcome, welcome, princes all"
				Act V Scene I


"Goodnight and welcome both at once to those
That go or tarry"
				Act V Scene I

Welcome to our autumn 1989 rally at at Milcombe, where the Horse and Groom will be our hosts for the weekend.

As usual, free tea and coffee will be available from our control tent during the rally, and the catering caravan will be with us again; this as well as the meals and snacks at the pub so you should not go hungry or thirsty.

Heather has come up with a slightly different quiz this year, which is on the next page.

There are some Shakespeare club sweatshirts, small size only at £6.OO, some sports shirts, medium at £7.50, and a new line, hats at £2.OO. These are as now being issued to the Greek army to co-ordinate with their skirts, and anyway are more comfortable than the helmets they used to wear, as depicted on our badge this year.

"Words, words, mere words, no matter from the heart"
				Act V Scene IV

We trust you will have a most enjoyable weekend. 


"What hath this day deserved? What hath it done 
That it in golden letters should be set
Among the high tides in the calendar?"
				Act III scene I

Welcome to our 1992 winter rally here at the Gaydon Inn. We trust you all had a good journey here and didn't get lost following the change of road numbering in the area.

"I am amazed me thinks; and lose my way
Among the thorns and dangers of this world"
				Act IV scene III

John, our landlord, will be on hand throughout the weekend to provide refreshing drink and food; full meals snacks and breakfasts. 

Trophies will be presented late on Saturday evening in the bar by Adam our chairman.

"This is the man should do the bloody deed"
				Act IV scene II

What is now termed the Heatherquiz appears on the next page - all correct answers will be put into a hat, and one quizter will perhaps get a prize - anyone failing to attempt the quiz will be sent to the tower.

We hope you will have an enjoyable weekend, and a safe journey home.
