The majority of BCC Rallies are run by 2 Stewards, one being on-site at all times.

The main duties of a steward is to welcome the arrivals, booking them in, and helping site them to an appropriate pitch.

If the stewards decide, they may offer the ralliers some form of entertainment or an activity during the rally.

Anyone who helps steward for BCC enjoys free camping for the duration of that Rally.

 

If you can offer your services as a steward, your help would be really appreciated as we cannot hold rallies unless we have stewards. New stewards would always be along side an experienced steward.

 

If you feel you can help, please get in touch with our Rally Secretary, or any one of the Committee.
