Easter five day rally 7th to 12th of April in Enniskillen

Our host for the weekend were the very able committee members. Irene and Robbie Hewitt. Roy and Jenny Dowie. As a team they provided 5 great days and nights entertainment. After everyone one was parked up we gathered in the hall for a Mama Mia themed night. 

  There were some great costumes and plenty of dancing to Abba music. Saturday there was an Easter bonnet competition with some stunning creations. It was won by Agnes Adair, second Ruth Ross, third Beverley Coulter. Most people then had a walk around the town and done a bit of shopping. 

  On Saturday evening we were treated to Hog Roast and a lovely selection of desserts. There was music after and lots of dancing. Sunday morning we met in the hall for tea and coffee. The Chairman greeted everyone. We had a moments silence to remember the people who could not be with us. The Margaret Davidson Memorial Cup for attendance was presented to Victor and Eleanor McFadden. Winner of the quiz was Alex Mellon and number plate draw winners were Teresa O’Hagan, Sammy Bates and Andrea Kane. The Coulter family provided us with treasure hunt sheets that took us around Enniskillen town, it was great fun( even in the rain). In the afternoon we had an Easter egg hunt and egg and spoon race. The partaking adults were like a group of small children running around trying to find the Easter eggs, which Irene and Selma had expertly hidden.

   After all the cream eggs were found there was lots more running up and down the hall, a few cracked eggs later and the egg and spoon races were won by Brian and Thelma.  Sunday evening there was a chance to meet up and chat in the hall with some music by Roy, a lovely finish to the day. 

  Monday saw most people completing the treasure hunt in drier conditions until rain brought them to the hall where an impromptu gathering for tea loaf, carrot cake and fifteens, provided by Irene was called. In the evening we had bingo by Ringo bingo and his glamorous assistant Ringletta, better known as Ivan and Alex Mellon. It was very entertaining and definitely different. Well done to all the winners. 

  After the bingo the dance floor was kept busy with a good selection of music by Roy. Tuesday morning we had a visit from Phillip Johnston (ARVY) who came to answer questions on our Motorhomes.

  Tuesday afternoon heavy rain saw of many of the Motorhomes. Of the 80 vans that were checked in over the five days, nine remained to enjoy a relaxed evening. The craic was mighty. No sympathy was given to Sam who claimed to have MAN Flu. Apparently worse than child birth. 

  Wednesday the committee packed up, and wished all a safe journey home.

           See you at Ballynahinch rally all being well.     By Hailey and Brian Warnock.
