Well what can I say other than Rickie
Whites rally was truly superb. I know rallies are not everyoneâ€™s cup of tea but
can only say you do not know what you are missing.Â
I went over via Dublin with Nick and
Amanda Hare on the HSS from Holyhead and thank them for allowing me to share
their B&B which was around six miles from the rally site at BallinamallardÂ
Football club, County Fermanagh. We took the new N3 motorway up through the
centre of Ireland which is excellent with hardly any traffic and only a small
two euro toll to pay. Rickie arranged some of the best weather for many a long
day and the site was excellent. Club members had full use of the catering
facilities etc and Rickie had laid on all day tea and coffee and we even
received a goodie bag from the local tourist dept run by biker Eddie McGovern. A
nice touch Rickie.
Alan Winter who has recently recovered
from serious illness was on hand to show us the beautiful trophies he had
designed made for the rally and also the ones he has made for the euro rally
which Amanda was taking back to Kent. They are made with various engine parts
Alan had lying about in his garage! See picture. Good to have you back Alan.
Rickie had laid on a sumptuous steak meal each night and the famous Ulster
breakfast on Saturday and Sunday mornings. Entertainment was laid on each
evening with a truly professional band on Saturday night. Nick and I managed to
win spanners and sets of screwdrivers in the raffle so we had every base
On Saturday we had a ride out to
Mullaghmore which was a round trip of just under one hundred and fifteen miles
which in the hot weather was just enough. Mullaghmore Â is of course the small
fishing village where Lord Mountbatten was killed during the troubles in 1979.
At the start of the rideout Rickie had arranged for a police escort and further
police at junctions in Enniskillen so the just under thirty cbxâ€™s could thunder
through the town. You should have seen the car drivers and pedestrians faces as
we passed through. Now I know how a king or queen must feel carrying everything
before them! Another nice touch Rickie.On the way back we stopped in a valley
the name of which I did not find out but nevertheless it was beautiful and green
with shear cliffs and a salmon and trout river running through.
It was great to meet so many of our
members from both Northern and Southern Ireland who have only been a voice on
the telephone or a name on an email.Great to meet you all.The concours awards
were as follows. BestÂ Twin Shock, Michael McBride, Best Pro-linkÂ Colin
Stafford, Best Modified,Vince Noone, Best Special, John Currie. Best Paint,
Norman Witherley. I cannot finish without mentioning Gaynor Helsby who came over
with husband Graeme and their two dogs ho were in the sidecar of their superb
pro-link outfit. Gaynor managed to break an ankle in Stranraer before boarding
the ferry. She fell off a curb I believe but nevertheless after treatment at the
local hospital Gaynor still came on to the rally. True grit as I am sure many
would have given up and gone home. We felt it was only right to give GaynorÂ the
Best in Show award.
Well done to Rickie and his helpers and
thanks to you all for making it such an enjoyable event.Â
