National Youth Rally 2011 Hosted by North Central Region.
Oswestry Showground 1st to 3rd July 2011

What can I say, the weather was brilliant, the atmosphere was brilliant and the youth members were brilliant.
We had a disco friday night, then on Saturday there was the Volleyball, Netball and Football competitions. On Sautrday evening was a live band and disco. Then onto Sunday we held the Austin Trophy sports. We joined forces with the Canoe Camping Club this year as only 3 North Central Region youth members attended.
All in all a good weekend was had by all. We have recieved lots of feedback from the weekend already. here are just a few:
Central Counties RYLO
"On behalf of Central Counties Youth and Youth Leaders we would like to say Thank you to you both and to all your working party for a wonderful National Youth Rally, really well run, good venue, good weather and good camping"

Eastern Region Youth member
"Thanks everyone involved for a throughly brilliant weekend."

Paul Jones, Membership Services Director and Youth Committee Secretary
"Thank you both for a great weekend and congratulations to you both on a fantastic rally - we really enjoyed it and most importantly, the Youth did too"

Southern Region RYLO
"Firstly can I thank you and your team for a wonderful weekend, all of our kids thoroughly enjoyed themselves from start to finish, I just hope we can copy what you had achieved at the weekend."

Trailer Tent and Folding Camper Group
"Just a quick note to you and your team for a great weekend. but next time can you turn down the sun a bit as i got sunburnt. apart from that our kids had a great time and everything in my eyes ran smoothly. Thanks again."

As you will see from the pictures we had a lot of fun. The fancy dress theme went down really well, with many joining in the fun.

Congratulations to Scottish Region for finally winning the Austin Trophy and to all the other teams for their brilliant sportsmanship.

Next year the National Youth Rally will be hosted by Southern Region, so if you would like to go then please let me know as soon as possible so once booking forms are available, these can be distributed immediately.

It was great honour that we asked Mr Barry Rook, Regional Vice President, to present two of our youth members with their test pennons and their certificates.
We also presented Ffion with her prize for the design of the meet pennon, she recieved a £15 Itunes voucher as her prize.
