Are you one of those people who is always finding better ways to do things?  Then this rally is your opportunity to share those ideas!

As part of the Workshops program, we are inviting all members to present their personal innovation.  The idea should be one that improves our RV lifestyle in some way by making it safer, easier, more efficient or sustainable or more technologically connected.  There will be a prize awarded for the innovation most popular with members.

Contact Colin Gard or Lurline Schmidt through the Rally Secretary to enter your innovation on elmorerallysecretary@gmail.com


RALLY FASHION PARADE

Do you fancy yourself as a fashionista? If so, you will be welcomed with open arms at the Elmore National Rally.


As an adjunct to the fashion event at Elmore we’d love you to flaunt your flair with “pink”. Come along and show your support for the McGrath Foundation and our own CMCA members who have been touched by breast cancer.

All it involves is some creativity.

Can you create a “pink” hat from scratch using any materials or decorate an existing hat with pink embellishments?

Creating a hat or piece of head wear using old bras may appeal to you more. If not, turn your Bio Magic Rally Bag into some sought after “pink” fashion bag.

You can begin creating now.
However, for a bit of fun and creative frivolity, the Rally Workshop area has been booked on Tuesday 22 October from 1.00-3.30pm. Please join in. It’s BYO everything when it comes to materials and tools.

Items in the 3 categories are to be completed by 3.00pm on the 22 October, in time for the all important judging.

The winner of each category will model their masterpiece at the official fashion parade the following day.

Register today to be part of this fun event!


Do you find walking around the rally site difficult?

Acting on member feedback, we have made an arrangement with EVENT SCOOTER HIRE that means you can book your mobility scooter (gopher) at special weekly rally rates prior to 30 September and have it waiting onsite when you arrive at the rally.  We need a minimum of 10 pre-paid bookings for these special rates... so pass this on to your friends who may be interested.
