Recommendations for Rallies

  1. It is of great assistance to Rally Officers if rally slips are in their possession in good time before the rally, and also any cancellation should be informed to the Rally Officer as soon as possible. Members booking in for a rally after the closing date will not be guaranteed a plaque.
  2. Please make all cheques payable to MIDDLESEX CENTRE CARAVAN CLUB not the Rally Officer. NO REFUNDS can be made after the closing date for prepaid rallies.
  3. It is strongly recommended that all caravans carry a suitable BSI and / or FOC approved fire extinguisher, and that everyone should be aware of how to use the one they have.
  4. It is advisable that each van should have a first aid kit.
  5. Respect should be shown to the landowner’s property, trees, fences, farm buildings, equipment and livestock.
  6. Rallygoers must utilise their own chemical toilets properly charged with one of the formaldehyde-based chemical fluids.
  7. Cars should not be driven on the rally field, if at all possible when the ground is wet, to prevent damage to the field.
  8. Open fires are not in general allowed, except with the permission of the Rally Organiser and in a place agreed with him. Barbeques should also be used with caution towards other caravans and awnings.
  9. It is recommended that members collect waste water from the caravan outlet in a receptacle, and do not allow it to overflow and foul the ground.
  10. Members attending rallies of short duration can reasonably be expected to take their refuse home with them.
