2018 York Rally is coming up fast - early May update

Many thanks for joining this mailing list about the York Rally. If you're receiving this in error, apologies and there's an unsubscribe link at the end of this email.

(1) Last chance for earlybird (=cheaper!) campsite bookings!

In all the excitement of our fundraising Sportive last weekend we neglected to remind people of an important deadline - the close of earlybird campsite bookings for the York Rally 2018!

1st May was the deadline for the reduced earlybird prices... but as a one-off we've decided to extend that until midnight on Bank Holiday Monday (7th May) - so you still have a few days left to benefit!

Book your campsite pitch now - online or by post:

Advance bookings save you money, allow us to site you with your friends or club-mates, and also get you fast-track entry on the Rally weekend. It also helps our planning - so please book your pitch now!

Campers really help make the Rally what it is - for the full experience you need to be there on site. Book your pitch now for a great weekend away :-)

(2) Sportive a success with 150-odd riders

Huge thanks to all of the volunteers, caterers, marshalls and especially organiser Pete Dunn who helped run our recent fundraising Sportive. Many thanks also to the riders: around 150 braved the headwinds to reach the North York Moors and some very scenic riding indeed. After our costs (for food etc) are deducted, the result will be a substantial four-figure sum raised to support the Rally. Photos of riders, taken at Low Mill, are up now on http://yorkrally.org/sportive/.

(3) Our next meeting

As ever, all are very welcome at our next planning meeting, which is on the 12th May 2018 at 10AM at the Church Hall of St Chad’s on the Knavesmire, Campleshon Road, York YO23 1EY. Please just let us know if you would like a lift from the railway station. After the meeting we'll have a first aid refresher session, to remind us of the course many of us attended last year. All are welcome for this, too.

That's all for now - thanks for your attention! We'll be back with more soon...

Your all-volunteer York Rally team
