Blogging....... how exciting
An organiser's blog
Sunday, 13 July 2008
Well, it's been a hectic couple of months, the hillclimb is done and dusted for another year, the June & July autosolos have gone off well and now it's time for the big one, the SGC Printing Harry Flatters Rally. There is a lot to think about, route authorisation, collation of road books, time cards and safety manual, booking officials hotel rooms, booking venues for HQ and scrutineering, ordering awards, stage furniture, rally numbers, doctors, rescue units, timing gear, the list goes on. As well as all this the regs need to be produced and put online so that our customers can enter the rally!
James Chappelle has done a brilliant job of the road book and time cards so they just need to be printed now. Bob Long, our chief marshal, is optomistic that people are booking in with him earlier this year, the historic Escorts no doubt helping this cause! As ever we greatly appreciate the invaluable help we get from our volunteer marshals.
The next few weeks will be a whirl as all the goods required for the rally are delivered and we endeavour to get the final instructions out. No doubt all the competitors will be involved in frantic activity getting their cars ready and we wish them luck in their preparations!
See you all on 2nd/3rd August. Next blog after the rally.
