Pohangina School Reserve, 9–11 March 2018

12 vans were in attendance by Friday night. Of the vans it was a 50-50 split between motorhomes and caravans. An interesting first for the Heretaunga Caravan Club. It was really satisfying to see such as good turnout. Well done to all.

welcome to two new prospective members, the McIntosh’s and Taylors. You joined in fully all weekend and were great company. We hope you enjoyed our company just as much and will join us in many more rallies.

Some were late arriving as the last active foundation member, Peter McCawe was fare welled. His funeral was at 2.00pm on Friday 9 March 2018. Peter and Elaine are our longest serving members and in the 44 years since the inception of the club have managed to accumulate 465 rallies. Peter will be missed RIP.

The  Pohangina School Reserve is a magic place to have a rally. The grounds are nicely mown and the old school classroom is available for hire and was used extensively in the evenings.

The Wylie’s were the Rally Family for this rally and they always be relied on to have a full programme and this weekend was no exception. Friday night we have a real brain teaser of a quiz. Unfortunately due to the late arrival of the funeral contingent only small number took part.

Saturday was given over to games outside and I can imagine the high jinx that evolved during the playing of these games. Saturday night was back inside playing card bingo.

One of the new members showed a new form of jump starter which included a air compressor. Dave was keen to see if it would charge his bait gun.

The Winners are Grinners

Lorraine showed us her new caravan at this rally and I am sure that she will have many happy ventures in this new acquisition.

A great rally thanks to all those who took part and we will see you at the next rally:
