84 rallies this year
The club has scheduled no less than 84 rallies for 2013. These include 3 continental rallies and 2 UK holiday rallies. See Rally Info above.
What is a rally?
A rally is a Club organised gathering of members and their outfits with the general idea of socialising, having fun and going to interesting places. Find out more on our reports page here.
How much do rallies cost?
Rallies are normally very cheap to attend. There is a rally fee of £4-6 depending on the length of the rally and then a site fee of typically £4 to £8 per night. A limited number of rallies have electric hook ups and these may add £2-3 per night. There is sometimes a social cost of a pound or two to cover the hire of a village hall or other costs. Holiday rallies and continental rallies can be quite a bit more expensive as we normally use commercial sites with electric hook ups. Also meals and tours are often included in the costs.

Swift Owners Club to host ACCEO AGM rally
ACCEO stands for the Association of Caravan and Camping Exempted Organisations. It is the over-arching body to which most caravan owners clubs belong. Each year an AGM rally is held in October hosted by one of the member clubs. In 2013 it's the turn of the Swift Owners Club and we've hired Towcester racecourse for the purpose. The rally will be held from 3rd - 8th October.

Indeed we run something like 45 rallies in the period October to March. Halloween nights, Bonfire nights, Christmas parties, Christmas shopping, New Year rallies, Panto rallies, Valentine rallies, warm up rallies - we've got the lot!
|The Queen says thank you to our junior members

The initiative was co-ordinated by Marion Tomlin who organised the childrens' activities at the rally. You can see the Queen's letter here.
