      Steve’s comments completely. The gang of three? Stephen Garthwright, Anthony Bowles and Charles Whittle.

  3. Thoroughly enjoyed York Rally 2015. Have bookmarked the dates for 2016 and will be encouraging another good turnout from members of the Rough Stuff Fellowship.

  4. Whilst mainly agreeing with others regarding the event I have some niggles. First the very good points – 2019 check point for camping no queue, improvement in shower facilities, undoubted hard work of the organising committee and all the volunteers.

    The niggles – Friday evening quiz ( observed not entered) . Questions were too Yorkshire biased – I accept from my experience of organising events that the majority of attendees are fairly local but please widen the scope. Sadly some entrants were using smartphones under the tables though obviously couldn’t say they were using them to gain advantage.
    Music at the event – Saturday daytime the players outside created a fabulous atmosphere whilst visiting exhibitors and purchasing products. In the evening, my family had attended for a while because it was my 75th birthday ( had led the RSF ride during the afternoon so time was limited). Showed them round and peered into the music. Quality of sound seemed great but the atmosphere iffy. Too much formal seating and no “friendly “ social ambience.
    Have a minor issue regarding consultation at the start of the RSF ride I led. Not for public consumption but would hope to converse with the Official involved in private.

  5. Really missed it this weekend still cycling hope it can re-start 2021. Did you notice the rain last night usual cycle rally weekend :).
