We set of on Thursday knowing the rally had been changed from Ruckland waters due to the wet grass, to Wing Hall.
The journey was very good and we had no traffic problems,much to our surprise.
on arriving at Wing the sat/nav took us to the village of Wing and told us we had reached our destination. oh no we hadn’t I shouted at it. I asked a lady and she said don’t listen to the sat/nav go round and up etc etc. We followed her hand waving and as we came around a corner the organises were on the road, telling us to go up the field. we slipped and slides up the field but they could see to get loads of M/ Homes to do that they would soon have a boggy entrance. A RV tried the next field but clunk, he sunk right down and as the were expecting 80 RV,s they began to realise this venue wasn’t going to happen.
They rang around and tried to find other sites but decided we would just have a mini meet back at Ruckland.
While we were talking a bird of prey flew around and landed in the trees and scared off all the rooks.
Next morning we travelled back to Rutland and we parked on a bit of hard standing so we were happy as we had just made it off the Grass at Wing.
Then the organisers said that they were going off to find another site of all the 120 M/Homes anRv,s, gosh they were working so hard, we said don’t worry about us as it was our fault we had come early so as the Rally didn’t officially start until Sunday we were happy and enjoying ourselves and seeing places we hadn’t been to before.
W e walked down to the visitors centre where they insisted we took Louis in andwe were able to see a Osprey family in their nest on a TV. we Realised that was what we had seen flying in the field ant Wing.
the organises came back and said they had arranged for the really to take place at Stratfield airfield which was 80 miles away and across the country.
Loved it, so off we travelled this morning in convoy and we got to the airfield that is now a Drag racing and speedway racing site, but they had cancelled the meet so we are sharing today with the racers and their teams.
This holiday has been so exciting and the rally doesn’t even start until tomorrow —WHOPEE?
