Big thanks to Paul and Jan who provided a very enjoyable National Rally this year. Without people like this stepping up to the mark things would never happen. Well done
It was good to put a few faces to forum names
We had a really good day, our first rover rally.Nice weather,nice people,and what a wide variaint of p5s.Amongst others there was a left hooker,in which the wheels filled the arches just right,on closer inspection,it "looked" as if the roystle has been split centre from rim and rim pulled outwards a inch. Also aware of how many cars that have had photos posted up on this site,and not one picture does them justice,"you think it would be the other way around" , Big thanks to Paul and Jan again ......and thank you John for the help,very appriciated as always.

I would like to say a big thank you to Paul McKay and his team from the Hampshire Region for their fantastic work in marshalling the cars. I don't think I've ever seen a straighter line of P5s! Paul, the hard work by you and your team is very much appreciated, and contributed greatly to the sucess of the day.
Also crucial was the tireless assistance from the members of my own Home Counties Region.
I think that the day went very well, and am glad people had a good time. In view of the current economic climate, and the price of petrol (especialy at c20m.p.g.) we wondered how many cars would actually attend, as it is appreciated that attending an event at any distance is now a serious financial undertaking. We also fully appreciate that mid August is the height of the holiday season, and many people will be away. Like wise, people will have work and other commitments that mean they cannot attend. By the way, the original date was in September, but had to be quickly changed at Milestones request.
My last thank you goes to everyone who attended. The P5 Club is the members who make it up, and the friendly atmosphere at the Rally was not organised, but provided solely by yourselves.
I was the last person to leave on Sunday, and left an empty field with not one piece of litter. I was very proud to hand the field back to Milestones in exactly the same condition it was in before.
