DRAGON RALLY 2020 SAT/SUN 8th/9th FEBRUARY 2020

BOOKINGS OPEN. FINAL DATE FOR RECEIPT OF ENTRIES 31st JANUARY 2020.

The 2020 Dragon will be held on the above dates.

The Board have considered the financial position of running the Rally as the 2019 Rally just about broke even. In recent years costs have spiralled. No Club Member receives any remuneration for their services. All support is totally voluntary and for the benefit of the Club. An increase in ticket price was inevitable if we are to continue to the 60th next year..

The cost is £30 per entrant (not per bike).

Payment by Direct to Bank only Sort Code: 09 01 55 Account: 62545182

One SAE. now required. Please indicate when payment was made to enable me to check bank statement. Thanks.

I will send tickets out until the last possible moment in February but please note any tickets not redeemed prior to the Rally will not be refunded and will not be available to collect on the day.

Cash payment £30 + One SAE. This is not recommended but is acceptable if no other method is possible. Please send at least recorded.

NO OTHER PAYMENT METHODS ARE AVAILABLE.

SEVENTH UPDATE 15/01/2020

CONCERN

I still have outstanding balances requiring SAE. I have no idea who they are from.

Outstanding Fullerton Brown 21/10, Hawkins 11/11, Bell 22/11, Palmer 9/12, Nightingale 20/12, Fullerton 23/12, Pyrmont 27/12, Greenwell 31/12 These are the oldest ones outstanding to the end of 2019 but there are more since.

REMEMBER IF I DO NOT RECEIVE AN SAE BEFORE THE RALLY NO REFUNDS WILL BE MADE AFTER THE RALLY.


The Dragon Rally

Like the Elephant in Germany and the Crystal Rally in Norway, is one of the Great European rallies usually held in the bitter depths of winter. It's where the enthusiasts go to talk shop, indulge in nostalgia, tell stories of their two-wheel exploits, make abusive comments about car drivers and fine weather motorcyclists (who only bring their motorcycles out in the summer).

The Conwy and District Motorcycle Club started the Dragon Rally in 1960 and it takes place in winter in the beautiful mountains of Snowdonia, North Wale and serves as a meeting place for motorcyclists all over the Continent.

Participants are limited to 1400 and they're not told the location of the camp site until they have reported to one of the caravans, which are positioned within 6 to 15 miles of it, for ticket stamping. Once there, they enjoy the Conwy & DMCC's warm welcome and hot soup as well as the local amenities including some fabulous pubs.

Each year the Dragon Rally badge is either red or white or green; the colours of the Welsh Flag, and is generally classy and collectable.

The venue has been held at numerous sites including:-

  • Bryn Bras Castle, Llanrug;
  • Gwrych Castle, Abergele;
  • Tyddyn Rhonwy, Llanberis;
  • The Riverside located between Betws-y-Coed and Capel Curig;
  • Ty’n-y-Berth; Nant Gwynant,
  • Beddgelert; Garth Farm,
  • Twin Lakes; and Llanrwst, Gwynedd.
