This year’s A.G.M. of the selected European Rally Group was held from Sunday 14th of October to Wednesday 17th October, and again took place in the grounds of Moreton in Marsh cricket club a great venue, secure and with plenty of parking space, and a nice warm clubhouse, we could use whenever we wanted.

Moreton in Marsh is a beautiful Cotswold town, with more than its fair share of pubs and shops so both men and women were kept happy, if only the weather had been better many of us would have happily stayed for a week or so, but of course, when it rains there's not a lot you can do about it.

The A.G.M. took place on Monday 15th at 4pm, and was well attended, the existing committee stood down but were all re-elected and many subjects were discussed, including the European rallies already known about, the Montgolfiade at Thouars which is a hot air balloon festival, held next August in France, also the 42nd EURO CC. Next year this will be held in Italy at Marina di Carrara in Tuscany, this will start on 8th of May until 12th of May, and will be immediately be followed by a prolongation from 12th May to May 19th, this rally is still in the planning stage so this is all the information we have at present.

During the evenings we had bingo for those who wanted it, also an excellent raffle with lots of very desirable prizes, and we had some great quizzes that were real fun with everyone joining in and having some good laughs. On Monday evening we had a superb ploughman's supper given to all, a very filling meal, even better was the Red White and Rosa wine that was provided every evening hic along with lots of nibbles.

The worst part of the whole rally was having to pack up and leave on Wednesday. The European rally group is a collection of hospitable, friendly people and any rally with them is sure to be a great laugh.

All members are reminded that the yearly subscription of £7 is now due.
