Having served many years on the Wiltshire Centre Committee, it is an honour and a pleasure to return for my second year to represent you as Centre Chairman. May I welcome the new Committee and all the Rally Marshals for the forthcoming year and thank them for offering their services and time to help support and contribute to the running of the Wiltshire Centre.

If this is your first visit to the website, you will find a great deal of information available, especially regarding rallies. Not only are they all listed on the “Rallies” page, but an electronic version of the Rally Handbook can also be downloaded. For security reasons all addresses have been redacted from the on-line versions, however a printed hard copy of the Rally Handbook is available should you wish. Please contact the Secretary for details.

I’d also like to extend my thanks to all the Rally Officers that give their time to put on the rallies which enable us to enjoy our hobby. If you would like to run a rally, or start out by being an Assistant rally officer, please contact myself, any committee member, or even chat to a Marshal running a rally; they, or us, will be able to give you more information, and maybe a few tips.

This year the National Rally is being held at Ragley Hall in Alcester, Warwickshire. If you have never attended a National Rally then give it a try; it’s a lot closer to us this year than it has been for a fair few years and it’s quite an experience. Adults and children can participate in sports, photography, cake making etc. The list is almost endless and there is something fun for everyone.

If you are a new member and looking at our web site for the first time, or a potential member thinking of joining the Centre, please contact me or any one of the committee members, and we can tell you what it’s all about. We rally for both fun and relaxation so hopefully there are rallies in 2019 that will appeal to you.

Liz and I look forward to seeing you on a rally field. Please remember we all rally as a hobby, enjoyment and relaxation, so come and support the Rally Officers over the forthcoming year and enjoy some “you time”.
