Sweed' Bashers Rally
The Sweed Basher in 1979 was the first rally I ever attended. I found out about it through the Solent SMCC which I was a member of. The run down there on the Friday night was a very wet and, by the time we got there, a very foggy night.We nearly rode straight past the Clay Pigeon Cafe as it was at the time. Spent the Saturday exploring the local area then spent that night in the beer tent watching people climbing the main poles and listening to various rock songs. Drank too much because the latter part of the evening is a blur.

That is the bit of rallying that we all remember . . . the blur at the end of the night.
The 1980 Swede Bashers rally was held in the west country (cannot remember where) in a field with a cafe where the entertainment was held.

Just found one of the badges, minus the date bar, with my metal detector in a field near Wells.
