THE RALLY GOERS
Dicky Dee, Mercenaries SC Jon Stares, Skaheads SC (Portsmouth)
How many Camber Rallies have you done? DD: 11 of the 17. JS: Last six years, (and the winter warmers there too).
All On the same scooter? DD: No, on various scooters. Most on my GP, this year was on the SX.
First time on the TS1, then the GP for a couple of years. Last three Skullduggery.
What are the high points of the Cambers you’ve been to? DD: Great mix of music, Tony Class DJing, band wise Who’s Who, who surprised me how good they were. Early Camber in the reggae room, I was always first in and last out. The ride there along south coast back roads. A good place to meet up with mates.
The late licensing hours, good mix of bands, the Northern Soul dance competition.
Any low points? DD: Slow service at the bar, solved by getting a chalet nearby the venue and popping out for a top up. And the heat inside.
Too few bar staff. Price increases in recent times which has caused dwindling numbers.
How do you feel about this being the last Camber Rally? DD: Gutted! Too many regional, local events, and clashes of dates have contributed to numbers not being what they were. It’s always a good weekend. Thanks to Chelmsford SC for 17 great years.
Pretty sad, it’s where I met and first got together with my missus. Camber cost me 27 years of marriage! Best wishes to Chelmsford Scooter Club for the future.
