This was Heretaunga’s turn to host the combined rally and we picked a new site for us at the Pohangina School Reserve.
When the school closed in the 1980s, the school building, swimming pool, tennis court etc were turn into a community reserve.The reserve can be booked for groups and this what we did. may be because of the venue there was a good turn out for this rally with 1 from Wellington, 7 from Wairarapa and 7 from Heretaunga, 15 in all.
Some of the vans on site – 5 Leisure Lines in a row.
The converted School Classroom.
As this was a short weekend some chose to arrive on the Thursday and make a lonng weekend of it. We were blessed with fine weather all weekend. This really is a great venue.
There were games organised for the Saturday afternoon but most were just happy sitting in the shade chatting or visiting the local cafe for Devonshire Teas, anyhow the games were given a miss. I wish to thank Victoria & Albert for carting the games all the way to the Hawkes Bay and back again and nobody played with them. Oh never mind.
For Saturday night everyone was asked to bring 60cents each, and by using specially marked dice, proceeded to releave all but one of all their money. as could be expected this created a lot of banter.
Another very enjoyable rally. See you at our next rally at Mt Lees Reserve on 17 – 19 March 2017
