Catch 22 Rally -  Radcot nr. Oxford

21st - 24th June 2007

This rally was run over the same weekend as the Glastonbury Festival, and boy did it compete well – with the weather!!

The team of Sarah & Tony + Brian & Denise, ably assisted by Melanie, Rachel, Vikki, Lucy & Ben did a fantastic job of feeding, entertaining and generally making the weekend one to remember – Despite the rain!

The main event of the weekend was the Catch 22 fishing competition, won by Dave Bubb, whose keep net contained a rather magnificent Pike! The morning had started with the Marshals providing Sausage and Bacon Baps for the whole rally, with the children delivering them to each fisherman personally. Saturday evening saw Sarah & Tony celebrating their 50th SOC rally, followed by a true or false quiz, that was enjoyed by all.

It was super to see Malcolm & Sue Gledhill on the rally field again after such a long break because of Malcolm’s serious illness, and also to be able to talk to Janet Ratcliffe who spent most of the weekend with the rally staying at the hotel just down the road.

Sunday morning saw us at flag, with many ralliers making a swift getaway as more rain was forecast.

A great weekend, despite the weather, and thanks to the Marshals for all their hard work.
