Organiser    Peter Sands 07860 118328 – email p.sands

This rally is being hosted by Peter & Sarah Sands and is the final opportunity this season to compare notes and swap stories of the seasons escapades

The Folly Pontoon has been reserved for an early afternoon arrival. The evening will start with pre dinner drinks and nibbles on the pontoon followed by dinner in the Folly Inn at 8pm.

There will be the opportunity to indulge in the local culture of “table dancing” later in the evening for those brave enough.
