SOUTHPORT NATIONAL SCOOTER RALLY / TRADE & CUSTOM SHOW

STATEMENT: 5/08/2020
LCGB
VFM

British Scooter Rallies Association

It seems that this year has turned into an absolute disaster for UK Scootering.
For clubs, alliances, associations and traders , it has posed many challenges, not withstanding the cancellation of many treasured events which are the backbone of our scene.
This statement offers yet more bad news, although many people I’m sure half expected it after hearing that the company managing the council owned Southport Floral Halls had gone into receivership.
Because of the overall uncertainty as to whether the Council will have the venue reopened in October, the delaying in the Governments change of policy towards indoor music venues/events and the drastic reduction in venue capacities and layouts as part of COVID guidelines which are to be introduced if and when venues can open, we feel at this time that some kind of decision needs to made about the future of the rally.
With that in mind, and the health and well-being of all our volunteer stewards to consider, we have sadly come to the decision to cancel the evening entertainment and daytime trade and custom show, which was to be held inside the Southport Floral Halls.

However all is not lost
Many of us, unless more restrictions are introduced, will still be attending Southport and making the best of it, and in that spirit VFM will be donating trophies for a Ridden Outdoor Scooter Show and sourcing a bit of outdoor space for a pop up Market.
Also if guidelines allow, we will be djing in one of the pubs.
We will announce more info in the next couple of weeks, including more details for the above pop up show and market.

2021 will return bigger and better, but until then we may see you in one of Southports many pubs for a beer and a chat.

BSRA Event Number 6
Sandown Airport

POSTPONEMENT NOTICE

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic VFM* have taken the decision to postpone the Isle of Wight International Scooter Rally for 2020.

The safety of scooterists, bands, our scooter rally crew and the Isle of Wight residents is paramount. We are not prepared to compromise that. We have been constantly monitoring the government updates and feel that, currently, this is the only safe option.

Under the current restrictions we would be unable to deliver the level of event that the IOW Rally deserves. Thank you to all our fellow scooterists that have shown patience, support and understanding whilst we have worked through this unprecedented situation.

For those that have purchased VFM 2020 AAA tickets, these will remain valid for the 2021 IOW Rally (saving you money and gaining you a free rally patch for your loyalty and support).

All enquiries to vfmshows@yahoo.co.uk

Until we ride again – stay safe.

VFM* – by scooterists, for scooterists

GREAT EASTERN SCOOTER RALLY, MABLETHORPE GOLDEN SANDS 2020

It’s seems that information has already leaked out from Haven regarding our event, even though we were asked not to make any announcements until the 22nd of this month.
Haven holidays as part of their restructuring programme, in line with potential government legislation, to reopen have decided that they will not host any large scale independently promoted events at their parks this year.
This means that with heavy heart we have to announce the cancellation of The Great Eastern Scooter Rally until the weekend of the 12th November 2021.

Anyone who has booked a caravan directly with Haven through the dedicated booking phone number will get an automatic refund within 28 days, so please don’t try ringing them immediately as they are seriously understaffed at the moment.
This year is turning out to be a bit of a trial for VFM and we had hoped out of all our events this one was possibly safe.
As a collective of scooterists we are frustrated as anyone, and desperate to get back on the road, but it seems that Mother Nature is determined to bite us on the Ass.
We will be making further announcements later this month

We are already negotiating the best deals for accommodation next year with Haven at Mablethorpe, so watch this space for booking Info.

KEEP ON KEEPING ON
The VFM*

It is with much regret that we will not be running the BSRA championsip this year. As you are all aware due to Covid-19 many of our signing on events have been cancelled and it isn't clear how many more will go ahead.
We would like to thank those of you who took the time to enter this year-your support is really appreciated. As the cards have been printed we are happy to give them to you as a keepsake.
The winners from last year also get to keep their shields for another year.
Thank you once again for entering and supporting the BSRA Championship.
Ann & Rick
ERSC
