We now have an ice cream vendor on site. In keeping with the special rally we are organising for you, ice cream will be available on a bike!
There will be traditional ice cream by the scoop with lots of lovely flavours at just £2 as well as ice lollies. So keep your eye open for Poppy's bike.
All we need now is the lovely weather so we can enjoy the ice cream.
Martin and Di Unwin, regular Cheshire Centre ralliers, have agreed to produce souvenirs for the Celebration Rally for us. Below are some of the products they can make, but if you have any personalised items you require with the 50th Celebration logo or have any other ideas please contact them.
To order your rally souvenir, please contact Martin or Di on mob: 07868 840 464 or via Facebook. They will then either bring the item to the Celebration Rally for you or deliver it to you when they see you on a rally field before the big day.
For the more experienced Cheshire Centre ralliers and our visitors who have attended Nationals in the past you will know how passionate we are about sport. So in keeping with our rich sporting heritage we will be having an afternoon of sports. There will be football, netball, volleyball, children's sports plus a fun run.
The sports teams will be mixed age and gender, so get your friends together old and young and enter a team. The idea is to have some fun for everyone, there obviously will be medals and trophies but the focus is on fun.
They have even roped me into the over 35's walking football and I don't do football, LOL. So if nothing else come and watch me 'play' football and have a laugh.
Meldale, a BBQ meat producer, owned by ralliers Tom and Sarah Dale have agreed to support the rally.
They will have a wide selection of meats available at the rally:
Sausages £2.99 (plain pork, black pudding, chilli or leek flavours)
Minted Lamb Burgers (x4) £3.60
Beef Burgers (x4) £3.60
Chinese Pork Skewers (x4) £2.99
Or 4 for a tenner on sausages and skewers or 3 for a tenner on burgers!
You can also contact Tom or Sarah to pre book your order.
So all you need to do now is remember to pack your BBQ and hope for good weather.
We're very happy to have Glossop Caravans as our main sponsor once again. They will have a selection of caravans and motorhomes for sale and are keen to do some special show deals throughout the weekend.
We have also secured the CAMC Concert band who will be playing for us in the marquee.
For those ralliers who don't know, or those of you who haven't been out recently, the committee are organising a free raffle which will be drawn at the Celebration Rally. There are two £500 cash prizes and ten £50 cash prizes to be won. Now I have got your attention with the thought of winning some cash, let me tell you how it will work.
There will be one free ticket in each 'goody' bag that you will receive on your arrival at Arley Hall.
To increase your odds of winning, each time you attend a Cheshire Centre rally between 1 May 2019 and 26 April 2020 you can earn another free entry into the draw. Just get the form signed by the rally chairman or a committee member.
On or before 26 April 2020, get your form sent off to Tom Dale to increase your chances of winning. .
Forms can be collected from the rally field or downloaded from here.
One entry per outfit per Cheshire Centre rally attended. The draw will take place at closing flag on the Celebration Rally and all forms must be submitted to Tom Dale by noon on Sunday 26th April 2020. (Rallies attended between 24th April 2020 and the celebration rally can be entered on to your form and no signature is required) The committee reserves the right to make any decisions in relation to this raffle as they see fit. Any fraudulent entries will be removed and not entered in to the final draw. *Final Prize values may alter slightly dependant on rally attendance.
You may have seen committee members and some ralliers wearing polo shirts sporting the 50th Celebration Rally logo?
If you fancy a polo shirt, a T shirt, a fleece, a hoodie or baseball cap as a lovely souvenir of the centre's birthday celebrations at Arley Hall then you can buy them from a company called Emblaze, which is run by past Cheshire Centre member Rick Corke. Emblaze have the logo and a special page for centre members to make it easier when ordering. At only £9.99 for a polo shirt it is great value.

I look forward to seeing you all wearing Celebration Rally clothing.
Lets make it a BRILLIANT weekend.
Emblazed web site only shows polo shirts, if you want any other type of clothing please just give Rick a call on 01625 402 420 or e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
To make the 50th Celebration Rally even more appealing to those ralliers travelling a long distance, (Cheshire Centre ralliers who have moved away or visitors from other centres), or folk who just fancy staying out in the vans a little longer, it was decided that a follow on rally should be organised.
Martyn and Nicola Shaw e-mail: Martyn Shaw and Barry and Glenis Chesterson have kindly volunteered to run the rally for us. Thank you both.
The rally will be held at Sycamore Farm which is only 30 minutes from Arley Hall, it is an ideal location to visit the local attractions of Tabley House, a former stately home, Joderal Bank, the world famous observatory, with its own vistor centre, Knutsford, a market town steeped in history and much more. Or to wind down after the rigours of the 50th Celebration Rally. The rally will start on the Monday 4th and run until Friday 8th. The Rally Officers will be organising events during the week to increase your enjoyment.
To book the Follow On Rally or to find out more information click the here or go to page 28 of this years rally brochure.
I thought it was very important to have entertainment for ALL age groups during the day. To that end the committee have, hopefully, hit that target. Below is what we have organised so far during the weekend:
