Force Ten Rally

We have done two Force 10 Rallys, 2003 and 2008.

It's the first rally of the year, 2nd of January.

2003

We had to wait for the ice to melt Sunday morning

- Hayley

At the Gaydon Arms, Gaydon it was very cold and the landlord promised to open for breakfast and never did.

Woke up Saturday to a field full of snow which Friday night had been mud and it had all froze over.

As usual no one could get me out of bed so Roy promised me a ride on his brand new Goldwing so that got me up and we went in to Coventry to the Motor Museum.

2008

A new pub in a village with five other pubs. A better venue and better landlord who put cheap food on all weekend.

Paula Fidge had a suprise party for her husband and I blew up about 40 balloons which we tied to his bike.

We had to wait for the ice to melt Sunday morning before leaving - the roads where very slippy.
