Updated 24th September - latest guidance on Covid-19 and rallies




Skipton Auction Rally 7-9th January 2022


Happy New Year to all the Members of the Yorkshire Dales Centre 
A New Year but sadly the same problems! 
Covid 19 has dealt us its first blow of the year with several members unable to attend the Skipton Rally due to Positive Covid Tests. 
Unfortunately with low numbers to start with this has meant that the Rally is just not econimically viable. The committee have taken the decision to postpone the rally with a view to keeping a good location and maybe using it again later in the year but certainly re-booking for 
early next year. 
We hope this is the correct call and we look forward to seeing you on one of our up an coming rallys. 
PS there are still spaces at Marsden for Burns Night. 




To all our Members

Dear Members,

2021 was a disappointing year for many reasons but it was COVID 19 which provided the biggest challenge to the centre, the committee and our members.

Whilst some of us have been affected directly by Covid 19 many, many, more have been affected indirectly by Covid 19 and it is probably fair to say that all our lives are now very different to how they were at the beginning of 2020. Running the centre, organising Rally’s and doing things that we once took for granted have become difficult and at times painstaking, however, we as a committee although small in number, have had the collective desire and energy to keep the centre moving forward.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank our members for their support in renewing their membership with the Yorkshire Dales Centre (YDC) and give a very warm welcome to all our new members. I would also like to thank those members that have come forward and offered to offer their assistance to help organise and run our 2022 rallies. Without this support we would not have a centre.

Most of our rallies in 2021 were “Free and Easy” due to restrictions placed on centres, however, some of us did manage to get together on a few Rally’s like Ripon, Knaresborough Cricket Club and Marsden Cricket Club. Obviously we are monitoring the current Covid 19 situation but we look forward to more events where we can get together in 2022.

We have introduced our new booking system and we may be adding to our rally calendar throughout the year so please make sure you look at our website as often as you can. As im sure you will be aware we have a fully downloadable PDF of the 2022 Rally Calendar on the website and whilst this may change over time it is great to have a print off of the Rally’s so that you can look at them offline. In addition, we have had some feedback and we are intending to print a single page quick look brochure to be released shortly. (available from the committee/rally marshals on forthcoming Rally’s) so that we can reach more of our members with our events programme.

At this point I would like to thank the committee and the Rally Marshalls who over the last 12 months have taken on a massive amount of work and given their precious time to help keep the centre going. As the Chairman of the Yorkshire Dales Centre I see on a day to day basis how much our team of volunteers are putting in and I would like to take this opportunity to thank them again.


Although numbers have been down on past years, and several rallies have had to be cancelled either for lack of numbers or Covid 19 related issues please be assured we are again working hard to bring you a new and varied rally calendar both this year and next.

Sadly, we cannot do this by ourselves and we need our members assistance to keep things moving.

We need new volunteers to help run rallies, organise events and help with the committee business but more importantly we need our members to take part in the events that do run. We understand

life has changed and covid19 has complicated things beyond recognition, but we really want the Yorkshire Dales to get through this period and re-emerge stronger with more members enjoying the simple pleasure of rallying.


If you feel you would like to give running a rally a go or just want to find out more about what’s involved before making up your mind, please contact either myself or any committee member who would be pleased to answer any of your questions.


I look forward to our AGM meeting in March and I hope we will be able to have a face to face meeting rather than over zoom. It would also be fantastic if we could get even a handful of new volunteers with new ideas and skills to assist us in making the centre stronger.


Finally, I hope to see as many centre members and visitors as possible during the coming year and urge you to book rallies early to avoid disappointment and possible cancelation of rallies.


I wish you all good health, happiness and a good rallying season throughout 2022.


Kind Regards

David Bolland

Chairman Yorkshire Dales Centre.              




Good Evening All,

Unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances our venue at Horton in Ribblesdale is currently un available for this coming weekend.

(9th July-11th July 2021)


We understand this is very short notice, however, we have only been made aware of this ourselves, earlier today.


The good news is that we have managed to find an alternative venue just off of the Settle bypass. For those that wish to do the Yorkshire Three Peaks

walk im afraid you will need to make a short (aprox 5 mile) journey by car. But there is ample parking in the village of Horton in Ribblesdale.

For those that are not walking the three peaks there are other local walks and settle is only approximately 1-2 miles away.


The postcode for the new field is BD24 0AJ. Please see further directions below.



From Skipton take A65 towards Settle. At roundabout junction of A65 & B6480 stay on A65 Settle Bypass

and take the first left under railway bridge, site on right in 50yds. Road signs will be from bypass.


Map Reference

98/ 806623


Please feel free to contact me if you require assistance 07702019003


We hope this is OK and we look forward to seeking you this weekend, however, if you feel that you no longer want to come on our rally due the

change please feel free to email back and/or cancel your booking through the online booking system.

Good Morning All, 

As you will all be aware the 46th AGM was held yesterday via zoom. We had 11 attendees including the commitee and the meeting was concluded by 13.58pm (having started at 11am) 
IPlease see centre news for a list of our new comitee. The pictures and contact details can also be found on the comitee page. 


Our Commitee meetings have been held over zoom throughout the Lock Down and it is our intention to continue with zoom meetings. We intend to try and have a quarterly meeting in person rather than via zoom. The commitee meetings are usually held on the second wednesday of ever month with the exception of August when there is no meeting. Additionally we are looking to have Rally Planning & Rally Marshall meetings via zoom periodically (when required) through the year. 
It would be great to see some new faces. 


If you look at the commitee page you can see when the dates of the scehduled meetings are.


Please feel free to contact any member of the commitee if you would like to offer assitance, or help out in any way. You dont have to be on the commitee to assist and any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated.
