September Spooks Rally

Chester

15 - 7th Sep 2008

Friday started well.......for us anyway...the weather turned awful during the evening but us "Swifties" aren't put off by a bit of rain......the good SOC signing always helps, of course.

The setting was the grounds of a magnificent Masonic lodge.........we had use of the conservatory all weekend. Time to meet with fellows ralliers on Friday evening with tea etc.

Saturday turned out lovely with some members enjoying the sunshine by just sitting and soaking it up! We however, with the help of the clubs "CAMRA" enthusiast, found that the local pub served a very nice selection of real ale. In the evening many of us enjoyed the ghost walk around Chester......our guide was none other than Tom Jones...looked a bit spooky himself to be honest....at one point Ellie nearly jumped out of her skin!!!!

The evening was rounded up with a delicious meal back at the lodge ....all empty plates returned so I guess everybody enjoyed the food - and very good value.

Sunday morning saw flag with the young member Ellie Verdon in charge of the raffle...........book that girl for a rally!!!! Welcome back to the club to the "first time" ralliers......the Kerfoot family.

Many thanks to Sharon and Paul Verdon ably helped by John and Val Brailsford (despite John being under the weather!.) Just goes to prove its well worth travelling out of area!!!!
