This year we've been scratching our heads to come up with an idea that would bring greater numbers of Club members to our National Rallies. If the press are to be believed, the traditional "park up in a field" is going out of fashion and Club members have higher expectations for what constitues a good day out. We are also very conscious of some of the comments that we've received about how expensive it can be to come to a show with the family.
This year, we have teamed up with our friends in the Joint Rover Clubs - the Rover P4 Guild, who host the second longest running Rover show ever in the UK at The Buckinghamshire Railway Centre, Quainton. This show has been running since 1979 and continues to attract a large number of guests.........
The Buckingham Railway centre is a great day out, and as long standing supporters of the Railway, the P4 Guild have a very very special rate ... of £3 per person payable on arrival. This is an enormous discount on the normal price of £11 per person.
Your £3 gives you access to the grounds, the excellent indoor railway museum, museum shop, restaurant and rides on the steam trains, it is superb value for money.
The address is:
Buckinghamshire Railway Centre
Quainton Road Station
There will be no pre-booking for this event, just turn up on the day!
Gate opens at 10am
Payment will be made at Club stand in the parking area where you will receive your self-judging forms, your rally number and your ticket for the museum. The best 4 cylinder and V8 cars will receive prizes for the top three in each category.
Unlike many other venues we go to, the Buckinghamshire Railway Centre have no problem with a bit of autojumbling. So a bootful of parts laid out of a blanket will be more than welcome.
We hope that you will support this show and enjoy the exhibits. When you come, please seek out a member of the committee and pass on your thoughts of such locations for our National Rally. Do you prefer the stately home? Or do you like something different, maybe even participating in a country show another year. We do our best to please, but it is your opinions that matter.
