In 2021 we made up for the missing rally due to COVID-19 restrictions in the previous year.
The 40th Big End Rally has been deferred for another year!
Friday went to plan with members there to set up the control tent and check in the early arrivals.
Friends arrived on the (un)usual range of motorcycles and tents. I'm sure Billy Smart is here somewhere.
By Saturday the campsite was full. Early booking is essential for the Big End.
This being the Leicester Phoenix MCC Diamond Jubilee, we provided cakes and invited past members to share on Saturday afternoon.
Asking the Members to stay still for a group photograph is a total waste of breath.
These snaps were taken while people were still (fairly) sober and not yet blurred out of recognition.
Good to meet up with you again....and of course all the other yobbos.
I left the camp around 8 and was making a cuppa before 3.30. Had very heavy rain around Shap and again at Carlisle and a big tailback south of Hamilton, where I had to filter for miles.
