The Registration Numbers Club has never held a rally in Wales before so for 2015 members hosted their annual event in the North Wales coastal resort of Prestatyn on Sunday 5 July. Our rally site was conveniently situated in the spacious grounds of the Lyons Nant Hall Hotel not far from the beach and town centre. Sun screen was the order of the day on Saturday and Sunday morning but, unfortunately, a heavy rain shower prevailed on Sunday afternoon. The day was saved by the hotel allowing us to use its wedding marquee for the prize giving and raffle.
PRE-RALLY DINNER 2015
The previous evening 23 club members from all parts of the country enjoyed a convivial dinner in the hotel.

Special awards for interesting displays and presentations
Adrian Hayward-Wills (well presented displays) Bernard Mansell (excellent books of registration photographs)
Darren Moore (very neat registration plate display)
The Noel Woodall trophy was presented to Brian Bates, a long time club member, for 'sheer nerve' in displaying this great plate!
Thanks are due to all helpers both before, during and after the rally. Bernard Mansell and new member Roger Evans helped make sure the cars were neatly displayed around the rally site. Many hands make light work and several of you helped us pack away everything afterwards, despite the heavy rain ... thank you.
Jeremy Portland and family gave us full use of their motorhome as a rally control centre once again and Club Hon.Secretary, Steve Waldenberg (R55 SNW) kept everything in order.
Several excellent prizes were donated by sponsor dealers and club members and thanks are due to all who purchased tickets from our intrepid ticket sellers, Lesley and Alison, who managed to relieve you all of your loose change and raised a significant sum to help with the not inconsiderable expense of running an event such as this. The dealers listed on the left also helped with sponsorship of various areas to cover some of our operating expenses.
Finally thanks are due to Pat Woodall who presented the Noel Woodall trophy in memory of 'Mr Autonumerology' and also presented all the other rally prizes.
SEE YOU ALL IN 2016
