Czech Rally - has anyone gone
« on: 29 August, 2020, 07:48:07 »
The Czech International officially starts tomorrow.  Has anyone from the UK gone in the end?  With the Czech Republic now on the list for quarantine on return, attending looks more of a challenge for those who have set off.
I know hind sight is a wonderful thing but it is a petty that the International reps could not have decided, with the agreement of the Czechs, to cancel the rally and encourage the holding of a Czech summer camp in 2022.  I think that this would have given a greater number of BSAOC members the enjoy the hospitality of the Czech Club without any Covid-19 risk.
It will be interesting to eventually see how many attended and from which countries.

On a more positive note, a Polish BSA owner has recently joined the Forum so you never know, a BSAOC Poland and an Inter. held there.

I'm still here in Blighty Dave.. Last I heard, there might have been less than 10 attending from the UK.. I was looking forward to visiting the Czech republic and if another date is set in the future I'll definitely make one barring the 'Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse' making an appearance!!  :-\

Hi Ian,

According to Google Maps it is not much more than 310 miles from Sigmaringen to Slapy so a visit to Czechia after the Gemany  Rally next year is quite pheasable.

Yes Dave, a trip back through Czech might be a plan.  :)

Our International Secretary posted on another forum that he has bailed out so it may well be less than ten.

Hi Bryan,

What Forum is that then?  Surely this is the BSAOC Forum for such information to be shared.

Hi Dave, I would have thought so too.
I've been with BritBike for a few years now on account of our US connectionsand that is how I saw this -

Morning Bryan,

Just read the BritBike thread.  Not much different to what has been posted on here.

The UK club had 4 members attending the Czech rally.
Belgium had 2
Netherlands had 30 (ish)

Hi Andy,

Thanks for the info.  It is a pity that after all the years of trying to get an International Rally the Czech Club had the bad luck of the Corona virus.  It would be nice, however to see some of them at an International.  Although I have missed a few Rallies I cannot remember any Czech members since 1995.
Is there any news re Summer Camp 2023?

Dave.
