Default Rushton spencer

When is the congleton/Rushton spencer rally on ?



I seem to remember that you dont need insurance to show , is that right .


I have not rallied since the 1000 engine rally last year and feeling a bit like I need to run my Stuart turner for more than an hour in the garden .

Looks like 14th October Steve;

It's run by the Macclesfield club and open to paying public, so I think it's almost certain that you will need insurance.

Dad and I had hoped to go today, but it's lashing down with rain here

Well done to any brave soul who attended.

Well we went Phillip....and wished we hadn't bothered really! Supposedly a reasonable day was in the offing according to 'those paid to know such things' but it rained from 6.30 am and is still raining back at home now. Not many engines, very few public, and I was wet through and frozen (Anne was cold as well) so packed up at 2pm. Didn't look around any stalls and some didn't bother unloading anyway. It was good to see Steve (Wildeye) and Keith again and a few other enthusiasts I knew but it was not a good day alas.

Pete.

Pete,

You aint seen the rain I've seen this weekend, I crossed the Severn Bridge on Thursday afternoon and it started raining and when I left IF at 13:00 today it was still raining, Friday and Saturday the winds peaked at 70 mph gusts, the route down to the A48\M4 through Newcastle Emlyn was closed because the route was now a lake.
Last night I went to Cardigan to have a meal in an Indian restaurant and I parked the car in a car park, I was advised to move the car by a Coast Guard because in his words it will be under several feet of water within the hour.
The local museum volunteers either couldnt get home last night or couldnt get back to the museum today because of the severe flooding, to get home I had to head north then move inland and even when I got up to Welshpool the fields around the area were heavily flooded, the locals said they had not seen flooding like it before.
A friend who came to the museum yesterday likes to fish around Newcastle Emlyn and on Friday he had to climb down a seven rung ladder to get to the river bank, when he looked Saturday morning he couldnt see the ladder.
For all the bad weather the museum had a lot of public visiting both days.

I had intended to go as a paying visitor. I got everything ready and decided to leave home when it stopped raining .... . Consequently I never went.
