RVDA Whisky Galore Event

posted 23 Jun 2014, 11:09 by Roch Valley   [ updated 1 Jul 2014, 01:10 ]

August Bank Holiday weekend 2014

I've spotted a few whisky drinkers among our members. 

Without mentioning any names you will see numerous bottles of whisky brought out on many a meet, generously offered to the connoisseurs among you and to those who just wish to have a taste.

I have often wondered what the appeal of it really is and I recon I’m not the only one.

I suggest we hold a Whiskey tasting evening, one evening during the August bank holiday meet.

I’ll take responsibility to organize the event

I suggest the format be, anyone wishing to taste must bring a 70cl bottle of decent sipping whisky with them.

Let’s say 1 x 70cl bottle per couple, be that husband and wife or two friends, If you are on your own a half bottle will be OKay. We want to make sure everyone gets a taste.  You can bring more if you are feeling generous as well.

Do not bring any of the cheap branded rubbish, which is only any good with a mixer.   You will be disappointed if I turn you away on the evening. 

Tip, I'm told Tesco have a good selection of single malts. 

Each couple/ individual will be expected to introduce their whisky, pour everyone a dram and as we nose and sample it, tell us of its origin, the character and any interesting facts or stories around that particular whisky.  You can get most of this information off the label of course but a quick Google of the whiskey may uncover some interesting facts too.

Those among you who enjoy a dram and those who have been given a nice bottle of whisky for Christmas or birthday and been saving it for a rainy day.  Bring it along to share, taste what others have brought and find out what real whisky is all about.

So we don’t get too many duplicates, could those wishing to participate let me know the whiskey you are bringing.

I’ll post a list on the website and on facebook and keep them up to date.

I'll start the list off

AGM - St Anne's Cricket Club (Friday 28th Feb to Sunday 2nd Mar)

posted 25 Feb 2014, 12:39 by Roch Valley

Dear all,

This weekend we will be holding our AGM at 2 p.m. on Saturday afternoon at St Anne's Cricket Club. I urge all of you to come along as it is an opportunity for everyone to voice their ideas and opinions on the way we are doing things and ideas for the future running of the DA.


Do you have thoughts on:


Rally Weekend activities.

Youth or children's activities.


DA spending.

DA equipment.

Fund raising.

Coffee mornings.


New Rally sites.

Rally entertainment.

The committee.

Recruitment to rallying.


Or any other matter that is of importance to you. Please come forward and take this opportunity to openly discuss your thoughts...mumbling in the background won't help you or anyone else!!


Further, our committee is losing some members, we require people to come on the committee and ensure a voice is heard throughout the year about all ongoing matters. If you are interested and haven't yet placed your name down for nominations then either please inform Mark Sharples our secretary or come along on Saturday and place your name on the nominations sheet. There are only 4 committee meetings a year so its not such a great burden. The more people "muck" in the easier it is for all to get through all the formalities of running the DA.


I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible and if you can't attend please send your apologies to Mark


Best regards

Ian Tyrer
