Jim G4RGA Rally Calendar
Organisers won’t always inform me of cancellations or changes- so
please check the rally website, email or telephone the organisers
before setting off for a rally.
Rally organisers are also asked to send their rally information to me:
mail at g4rga dot org dot uk in order to have the rally publicised here.
It would also help rallygoers using navigation equipment if the
postcode or grid reference of the venue could be included in the published
information. Feel free to include appropriate social media links to your
Rallies are, traditionally, Sunday events unless otherwise stated.
