Hi all.
Bad news is, I won't be camping at this event, despite it being almost on my doorstep. Reason being, I have to work that weekend, to make ends meet, keep food on our table, and hopefully save up enough pennies to maybe take our poor little tent away for a weekend later in the summer!

... The good news however, is that my work will involve fetching, carrying, and general dogsbodying for Muckerette, who will be trading from behind her very own craft stall at this event (Sat & Sun) selling her exquisite 100% handmade goodies (Well, sewing machine, mainly!), somewhere within the "Craft Marquee"!

Assuming I'm not allowed to advertise on here, so just look out for cute fabrics, lots of little birds (Other animal and non-animal designs are available!), Practical and pretty gifts...and a very, very handsome (albeit a tad hungry-looking) couple, grafting to earn a crust! That'll be us, so do please come and say hello!

I promise I won't be twisting anyone's arms to spend your money... much!

Hello Mucker, well you'll have a job twisting my arm but will try to say hello.

Hope the weekend goes really well for your stall.

Thanks, Steve.

If the postmark is prior to 20th June but your application arrives late it WILL be accepted as we know all too well how wonderful the postal system is.

I will update the list of UKCS attendees after Wednesday this coming week.

Thanks, as ever, for the support.

Pam

FINALLY been given the application forms but am upsetting people by requesting a cash 5 supplement on arrival. WHY? At the top of the form it does say UKCS Username [Essential, only 1 username per booking.] If this is you then be assured it's nothing personal but the 5 extra discount is for members only and with no username I assume you're not a member.

UKCS members are given an extra advanced booking discount in recognition of the support this site gives our event which is run purely to raise money for local charities.

I hope to update our list of members attending by the end of the week and thank you to all who have booked with us.

Hello, Friends

Have had a few members who didn't include an email so I can't send the usual arrival information which those new to our event will hopefully find useful.

Here it is for those who may need it.

Thank you for booking the weekend caravan/camping package for the Elvaston Steam Rally.


Follow the brown signs to Elvaston Castle. Gates will be open after 1pm on Friday 1st July; paperwork can be collected up to 8pm. Gates close at 9pm.        Saturday arrivals are between 7am and 2pm when gates are closed to new arrivals. Please follow the signs for weekend caravans or weekend camping. Don't use any showground entrances, farm tracks or private drives as there won't be space to turn round! Some Sat Navs        will not get you to the rally site so please use common sense! The camping fields are off the B5010 directly opposite the main Elvaston Castle entrance.
                     
On arrival you will be given a registration form to fill in so please bring a pen! You will then be directed to your pitch; should you need a disabled pitch, wish to save space for friends or have a generator please make the gate steward aware of this. There will be time to set up your unit and settle in. Once that's done you need to take your registration form to the booking stewards who will exchange it for your envelope containing your wristbands, car and camping pass. On the Friday afternoon/evening you are most welcome to join us on the showground where there will be some trade stands open along with catering and the licensed marquee with entertainment. Please note, no alcohol may be taken across to the showground.

If applicable your cheque will not be cashed until the week beginning 23rd June.

We look forward to seeing you.

Kind Regards

Pam

I will shut up in a minute!!

Just to let you all know that, unfortunately, we have been unable to source a mobile shop for this year's event.

If you turn right out of your field and head up the lane to the very top you will see a Co-Op directly opposite and it has a car park. It is easily walkable for fit individuals.

There is also a huge Asda a drive away, address for your satnav is

Derby Road Spondon DE21 7LW

Hello, Friends,

am not going to be around much online now until I'll see you Friday afternoon at the rally.

I have contacted the following people but they have failed to respond and so will have a 5 supplement to pay before collecting their passes due to me not having any details of their UK membership as requested. We try to make it clear that the 5 advance booking discount is for UKCS members only and not the general public.

Tomorrow all the paperwork will be handed over to Tracy, your boss lady, AKA chief steward.

If you're on this list and are a member then PLEASE contact me urgently to update your booking on

I've had a flurry of last minute enquiries regarding family and friends who didn't book in advance but now wish to join the fun.

It is fine to turn up on the gate and pay, space will be available. You can save spaces for those arriving later but you must let the pitching stewards know you wish to do so in order for extra room to be allocated.

Please park sensibly as requested. Remember we cannot allow windbreaks between pitches. This is for safety reasons, all gaps MUST be left clear should there be an emergency.

Several years ago a trailer tent caught fire at our event, fortunately no one was badly hurt but when the fire service and ambulance arrived it certainly brought home the reason for the spacing rules. We are NOT Glastonbury!! Anyone know how they get away with tents all within touching distance of one another? It makes me shudder to think of what could happen there.

Pam
