Unfortunately we have been unable to secure another venue, at this time, to replace Sandy Balls, who were demanding an excessive amount as a deposit for this year; & as we didn’t have rally officers to run the rally, it was decided to shelf it. We are currently looking at alternatives to reinstate it for 2017

Christmas Party, Chilworth 9th – 11th December. Please book in early for this rally.

If you haven’t rallied and feel unsure, why not come and visit one for a day/few hours without the van and see what it is all about before you commit yourself. Just report to the Rally Office (where the flag is) and you will be made most welcome.

If you are a rally officer and require any equipment from the store, please contact Nick Eagleton at least 1 week before your Rally.

Hello again everyone,

And welcome to the 2016 AGM Edition….

Well Autumn is upon us, according to the meteorology report. ….next stop -  Christmas!

The holiday rally at Budleigh Salterton was again a great success, which we attended and a great time was had by all. We also tried to attend nearly all the summer rallies, most of which were well attended.

I can’t deny I’m struggling to put a newsletter together this time; as there are now so many alternatives available to spread news via  the West Surrey updates from your secretary, the website  + our new Facebook page.  Whilst I appreciate the tradition of this publication, I do wonder if it should be shelved, given that only 10 of our current centre membership do not have email addresses, who maybe folks who don’t care to read it and/or we don’t see on the rally field, maybe we have to move with the times? Your comments would be appreciated at the AGM, in AOB.

The closing date for the next issue is slightly earlier than usual set at 5th December 2016.

Marilyn and Maurice would like to thank all ralliers on the Pooh Cottage Holiday rally for their generous gift at the end of the rally. We have bought a new sun awning for over our French doors (yes the sun does shine in Yorkshire) We hope you all enjoyed your stay despite the weather. Looking forward to next year in Newquay.

Heartfelt thanks, for the generous donations afforded to us from the ralliers at Pooh Cottage holiday rally.

See you next year,

Carol & John.


Thanks to all who attended & supported us on the rally at Royal Victoria Country Park, we hope you all enjoyed your stay, and sorry it was too hot (not often we say that!) for the games afternoon to take place for most, but we did try, undercover of the tents, great success, as it turned out; but we don’t blame you for staying in the shade either. Brilliant weather & company, hope we see you next year..  Fliss, Sue, Mike & Robin.


And now some light relief

For some time many of us have wondered just who is Jack Schitt?   We find ourselves at a loss when someone says, 'You don't know Jack Schitt!'   Well, thanks to genealogy efforts, you can now respond in an intellectual way.

Jack Schitt is the only son of Awe Schitt.

Awe Schitt was married to O. Schitt, the fertilizer magnate, and owner of Needeep N. Schitt, Inc. They had one son, Jack.

In turn, Jack Schitt married Noe Schitt. The deeply religious couple produced six children: Holie Schitt, Giva Schitt,  Fulla Schitt, Bull Schitt, and the twins Deep Schitt and Dip  Schitt.

Against her parents' objections, Deep Schitt married Dumb Schitt, a high school dropout.  After being married 15 years, Jack and Noe Schitt divorced. Noe Schitt later married Ted Sherlock, and because her kids were living with them, she wanted to keep her previous name. She was then known as Noe Schitt-Sherlock.

Meanwhile, Dip Schitt married Loda Schitt, and they produced a son with a rather nervous disposition who was nick-named Chicken Schitt.

Two of the other six children, Fulla Schitt and Giva Schitt, were inseparable throughout childhood and subsequently married the Happens brothers in a dual ceremony.

The wedding announcement in the newspaper announced the Schitt-Happens nuptials.

The Schitt-Happens children were Dawg, Byrd, and Horse.

Bull Schitt, the prodigal son, left home to tour the world.

He recently returned from Italy with his new Italian bride, Pisa Schitt.

Now when someone says, 'You don't know Jack Schitt,' you can correct them.


Mick and Paddy, on high rise scaffolding,

Paddy falls off and hits the ground and dies.

The coroner claims that it was death by a fall.

Mick jumps up at the hearing and says,’ no..

He died of a venereal disease…!!’

‘How can that be’?  Says the coroner.

Mick says he heard Paddy shout out as he fell……..

‘(I’m a gonna here )’
