Munch Bunch M.C.C.
Get A Life rally.
August 22nd 23rd 24th & 25th.
The plan was to travel to the
Munch Bunchs rally then continue south for the Crazy
Buzzards rally. Due to me being a wimp, and the weather
being wet, the plan was somewhat altered. Its bloody
typical. The hottest, driest, sunniest days for years but
it rains on the bank holiday.
I arrived at the Walwyn Arms, in the extremely small village of Much Marcle, sometime Saturday afternoon. I set up camp and went in search of beer & food. The lads from the Munch Bunch were selling cans at £ 1 each. Now thats what I call reasonable. The guy doing the catering was selling chilli and chips also for £ 1. Cheap beer and cheap chilli. I hope they have enough toilet rolls. From what people told me the band was excellent. Im afraid I didnt venture into the marquee to find out. I dont care how good the band may have been but I cant stand volume for the sake of volume. As they say "If its too loud. Youre too old" Well. I must have been born old because I couldnt stand too much racket even when I was younger.
Even though this rally is held over the bank holiday weekend, Sunday saw most people packing up and going home. The caterers went, but , fortunately, the toilets stayed.
We decided to stay and have a meal in the local pub. Seeing as we had already tried the grub the day before we knew what to expect. What we didnt expect was a packed pub that wasnt cooking any food. It appears there was a quiz night booked. Perhaps people dont eat when they are thinking?
When alls said and done. I enjoyed the Munch Bunchs rally. No doubt Ill have another bash at it next year. Thanks lads.
