York Rally 2021 cancelled, but we hope to be back 17-19 June 2022!

There'll be no York Rally in 2021, but we’re hoping to be back on 17-19th June 2022!

At our recent virtual AGM and planning meeting, the all-volunteer York Rally organising committee unanimously decided that it is, regrettably, not possible to run the Rally in 2021.

Although restrictions may have eased by June, we cannot at this point be sufficiently confident to run the event. We had left the decision about a 2021 event as late as possible, hoping for more certainty by now, but the decision could not be postponed further simply because so many aspects of the Rally need booking and organising well in advance.

However, the committee is optimistic that we will be able to run a full York Rally in 2022. Of course this will have to be confirmed in due course (probably towards the end of this year) if circumstances permit.

If it can go ahead, it is likely to be on the weekend of 17-19th June 2022. These dates are still provisional, but please do put them in your diary for now – something to look forward to at last!

We’ll keep everyone informed of any updates.

Meanwhile, thank you to all of the York Rally’s volunteer officers and committee members who agreed to continue in their roles at the Rally’s AGM.
The committee will meet again (virtually) on the 24th April to discuss what if anything we can do mark the traditional Rally weekend in June. As ever, our meetings are open to all, so please do contact us if you would like to join.

But for now, let’s cross fingers for the next York Rally to take place on the weekend of 17-19th June 2022 – COVID permitting of course!

We're eager to bring the York Rally back in 2022 - but we need your help! Key organising team roles MUST be filled by new volunteers if the Rally is to go ahead.

In particular we need someone to handle campsite bookings and also someone to take over the Trade role. We can work remotely, so being close to York is not really an issue.

See here for full details: https://yorkrally.org/2021/09/25/urgent ... olunteers/

We hope these will be rewarding roles - whoever takes them on will be helping secure the future of this great historic event. Please do contact us using the detailed provided in the link above to find out more, or to volunteer!
