a free field great so less rent for a space ????? and yes ask a small amount to enter a car tractor etc etc etc and camping all fine but let the passing public in on saturday and it needs to move with times let the younger boy racers come so they can show off there cars they are the future classic cars they spend a fortune on them we are all getting old move with the times bring in new blood my sons have boy racer cars but one of them has now got an old golf gti and spends lots on it get them when they are young and they might save events like this yes they might cause trouble on saturday night so invite them for sunday only

The SELKIRK VINTAGE RALLY this not a classic vehicle event or should not be, the public pay to see VINTAGE or that is what i would expect when visiting a VINTAGE RALLY . We attend at least 2 vintage rallys a month from April till November to say its a meeting place for people who rarely see each other you could not be more wrong the vintage guys travel all over the country they object to pay to exibit, yes charge for the camping and get rid ov the modern cars. How many vintage rallys do you go to Mr Blaikie in a year ? What happened to the committe phone numbers? they have been removed wonder why !

The problem we all have with classic vehicle events is they are just not popular enough with the general public, The Selkirk Rally is a good example of what these events have become over the years, and that is a meeting place for exhibitors that rarely see each other from one year to the next, a sort of unofficial club that we all enjoy, however that cosy situation does not pay for the event, boots through the gate does, and that is the problem, It would fair to say all Vehicle events in the Scottish Borders visitor numbers are down, some say their are too many in the calendar (Kelso May, Thirlestane June, Selkirk September) others say they have had their time, whatever the reasons, the Selkirk Rally as it is cannot continue

Don't dispair about the weather. I saw Eddie and Iris smiling as we left on Monday in their onezsies. They are obviously up for the challenge. Don't loose the faith, keep the rally going. Why not charge all exhibitor campers £5 to help with the show costs in case of bad weather. Or even change the date to maybe August..... It costs us £120 round trip in fuel so to me an extra fiver is nothing. A lot of the other lesser rallies charge so why don't you...............Regards and best luck from Mick and his mates from Lancashire.

yes worst day ever ,but a great day on saturday for sellers but no one buying all walk about with hands in pockets, passing cars that tryed to come and look at the stalls where all turned away and told to come back sunday, no one comes to these shows on a wet day never mind very wet with gales ,the new charges for every one are bad enough and the cost of a field for a few days is way too high a poor turn out all over the field with people not turning up due to weather ,but high running cost will stop a lot of traders from comming back ,move to a new location i bet a lot of farmers would charge a lot less too for the use of a field as the rental of this land is way too high ,and ian wind with rain you cant set a stall up and sell when its like this and when no one turns up too ,have it over two days so we can all have a go but still make sunday the main day ,move with the times

Thanks for the comments Ian on the event today, it would be fair to say it was the worst day for the event since it began, the weather being the biggest culprit, however there are other factors that have a compounding effect on this event and we all saw them come together today, it perhaps is a bit premature to write the Selkirk Rally off yet, but early figures don't look good, this site will keep folks informed in the coming weeks

just back from Selkirk rally with 2 fire engines brilliant weather Saturday then the dreaded rain on Sunday, Can I just ask all exhibitors & stall holders come on people its only rain we can all dry out, The committee & volunteers do a lot of work to put rally on the least we can do I stay around & support them, I don't care if it rains snows or bloody hurricanes we will be back next year bring it on

Fingers crossed for this year. I am just printing a newsletter for S.A.V.E as it's not too early to get members for a club stand.

i hope this years show will be blessed with sunshine to make up for last year ..one thing that I must say is that last year we stayed on the camping area which is a lovely spot and it was interesting to see the damage that was being done to the field through demonstrations of bad or shall i say uneducated drivers.There was the 4x4 drivers that knew how to drive their car and would just let the car drive and just float over the mud but get through no hassle or drama and then we would see the opposite 4x4 drivers taking runs at the muddy route and spinning wheels and skidding and digging into the mud making the road worse and making it harder for others to use.then we would see lets call them older drivers and they too would take their time and get through no bother so for everyone to moan about the conditions on the camping area and the field perhaps many of them should consider their driving techniques and it was a combination of circumstances weather the biggest influence , so i hope this year that the weather is good and the sun shines and we wont have the same problems and finally i would like to give a BIG BIG hug to those brilliant tractor drivers who were on hand and did a brilliant job and got little praise they should get a medal..maybe there should be an award for the the knights in tractors..!!!!
