Rally Book Cover – Competition

With the changes in the programme this year the Photographic competition will not be held until January 2017 - As members will know the rally book cover photograph is chosen at this competition and this year it will be too late in January to include for the 2017-2018 rally book.

For this year only, the committee have decided to run a competition for our younger members (16 years and under) to ‘design a rally book cover on a caravanning theme’. A good use of the last few days of the Summer Holidays!!!!

This can be a drawing, photograph, collage, anything at all that is a representative picture of our centre and what we do each weekend.

All entries to be forward to the chairman either by post or scanned and emailed to chairman@nottscentre.com

The closing date for entries is Friday 9th September. Entries will be judged by the committee and the winner will be announced at the AGM.



Rally Launch 2016

Rally Launch will take place this year at 11.00 a.m. on the Saturday morning of the AGM weekend. (17th September)

The latest copy of the rally programme is here:

Rally Programme 2017-2018

As in previous years - the programme is presented and each family may only pick up on rally on the first time presentation to give other members chance to marshal a rally.

After this you may volunteer to marshal as many rallies as you wish.

If you are interested in running a rally but not able to attend then you are able to complete
a remove Rally Request form.

The form and rules are attached here:

Caravan spacing - Why be so fussy?

It's a bit of a nuisance sometimes for marshals to adhere exactly to the?Caravan Club's issued?spacing?guide lines. We have all bent the rules to a certain extent. Of course we all know it's all to do with safety and insurance, but that's just being fussy. Right??

After you have read the following harrowing letter you will understand why we need to stick to the rules - and why we will have to insist on outfits being moved to an appropriate space if they are sited too close together. We all need to get it right early before the awnings go up and the corks are out!?????Click Here.

Rally Book - 2016/2017

We now have a PDF copy of the rally book available.

As is the usual custom in the Centre we have taken out addresses of all the rally marshals as we don't publish these - any alterations to the programme have been documented in the PDF linked and will be updated as and when necessary, as well as members being informed on this website and our facebook page

He has been sponsored by Centre members to support Muscular Dystrophy UK - well done Steve!!
