Default Smallwood Rally, 2014.

Just been turned away from the entrance this morning, it all looks very muddy. Very disappointing for all concerned.

Aye, just had a text message telling me it has been abandoned. Should have been there exhibiting but had to send Brenda our apologies in the week owing to van problems. Shame, but these things happen.

Can't say I'm surprised with the amount of rain we have had locally. It's a pity though, I was thinking of popping over today....., but even the car boot was rained off this morning.
