2016 The 40th National Rally

The 40th National Rally - 10th to 12th June 2016.

In 1977 Ian Bridge and Alan Madeley organised the Jawa-CZ Owners Club first ever national rally.  We have held a national rally every year since and this year marks the 40th rally.  Ian and Alan will both be in attendance this year to help us celebrate this milestone event.

The rally is being ably organised by Glen Newport, the North West club rep., with some small assistance from Torque editor, John Woods, and Gibby, of the emporium fame.  The rally badge, designed by Bobb Negus, is shown below.  Every attendee will get one of these and they are also being used on “silver” salvers as awards, which are, again this year being provided by Gibby, for the usual categories – best bike in various age groups, solo and combo, furthest travelled to the rally, etc, and of course the coveted Grot Bike award.  The cost of the rally will be £15 per person for the whole weekend, under 16s free (no badge).

On the Friday and Saturday we will have exclusive use of the very well appointed function room at the Sports Club, pictured below, which has a real ale bar and the club’s own catering facilities, offering hot food at various times over the weekend.  Have a look at their web site at  http://www.crewevagrants.co.uk/index.php

You should try and get there early on the Friday (a few of us will be there on the Thursday) as a run out is planned to Gibby’s Emporium which is just a very short run up the road.  We have been promised tea and biscuits at the Emporium and a chance to browse Gibby’s stock of rare and valuable, new and pre-owned, spares and bikes, and perhaps find a bargain on that part you’ve been looking for.

On Saturday morning there will be a run out of about 20 miles each way to a local place of interest, favourite at the moment, if the weather is good, is the Anderton Boat Lift.  In the afternoon we are planning a line up and judging of bikes on the field.  In the late afternoon / early evening, in the function room, will be the prize giving, a raffle, and the club’s annual general meeting - but not necessarily in that order.  On Saturday evening in the bar there will be a free hot and cold buffet meal for everyone.

The exact details are to be finalised but it is planned that the cricket club are catering in the function room for food on Friday evening and breakfast on Saturday morning, and there’s the free buffet on Saturday evening.  We will be sharing the room for breakfast on the Sunday with the car booters.

The raffle is always popular and members are encouraged to bring along items for the raffle.  If you have a friendly local dealer, a bottle of 2 stroke oil or some spark plugs are very welcome as are items from Lidl or Aldi or even from a car boot sale or charity shop.  The items do not have to be motorcycle related so you might consider wine, chocolates or cosmetics.  How about donating that gift you had for Christmas that you didn’t want, don’t need and will never use.  Prizes can be brought to the rally and left with rally control on arrival or if you wish to send us a raffle prize please post to Glen Newport.

Every Sunday throughout the summer the other end of the Club Cricket pitch is used for a car boot sale so anyone that is interested can visit the sale and perhaps pick up something of interest before heading home.  There will be a detailed program of events available on arrival at the site and at some stage we’ll tell you why there is a worm on the badge

Annual General Meeting – this will take place on Saturday 11th in the function room at the rally, late afternoon/early evening.  If you want any specific topic discussed and a decision taken then you need to ensure the Club Secretary has your request so that it can be included on the agenda that will appear in the issue of Torque posted out before the rally.  This means it must be received by the last day of April. Matters raised at the meeting will be for discussion only as the wider membership will not know of them.  If you wish to take a more active part in the Club by becoming a Local Area Representative/Organiser or standing for office then again it has to be notified to Pete Edwards, Secretary by the 30th April. (Pete’s contact details on page 17 of Torque Magazine.)

The Rally is very much a family affair and all are welcome - even if you come by car or van. Many camp and there is space for caravans too.  We also welcome Day Visitors – the main day being Saturday.  Don’t come at lunchtime Sunday and expect a field full of Czech bikes as most folk leave during the morning to travel home.  The Premier Inn Crewe & Nantwich tel: 0871 527 8782.  This looks to be the closest cheaper hotel (£39) and the Pollard Inn on Willaston Village Square has rooms at £85 a night tel: 0151 327 4615.

We have been advised that the prices for The Premier Inn were in the £60 - £66 region. There is also the Travel Lodge Crewe tel: 08719 846296.
