For those who arrive early, the organisers have arranged a number of optional excursions details of which are also shown in Appendix A. Two of these excursions, to the Viking Ship museum, also require prior booking through the www.fim-rally2019.com site as the trip includes a 2 hour trip in a Viking Ship & the organisers have to book these by the boat load. As this excursion requires the ability to climb down into the ship & also join the crew in rowing it the less fit & mobile may wish to give this one a miss. Once you have an accepted booking for this excursion, booking & payment can be made through the ACU. For those wishing to visit the museum without going for a row, it is hoped to site the parc ferme by the Arrival Control there on the Wednesday.
The entry forms may look intimidating to start with, but completion is quite straight forward. To start with, unless you are taking more than one passenger don’t bother to print page 2, it’s only for those taking 2 or more passengers. Two copies of the forms need to be completed, one you send in to the address below together with your payment, cheque to be made out to the Auto Cycle Union, the second set of forms you retain and take with you to the rally. At the top of the forms, in the 1st box write “ACU” & leave the 2nd box Serial Number, blank. The rest of the form, completing your personal details & those of your passenger if you have one should be straightforward, your email & postal address are important in case we need to contact you regarding your entry whilst a person to contact at home could be important if you have an accident or suffer illness whilst at the rally. Your bike details are also important as they will be used on your ID tag at the rally to ensure it only leaves the site with the right rider. On the bottom section of the form please indicate the dates on which you will arrive & leave the rally (important for arranging catering & other facilities) and tick which form of accommodation you are taking (if you are booking the festihuts etc. from the organisers please tick Camping). In the box for Special Diet please any special dietary requirements you might have, being careful to be clear about any allergies you might have. If you or your passenger don’t need a special diet just strike the box through. Finally sign & date the form & if you are a member of or are a member of a club affiliated to the ACU or BMF tick Yes, otherwise tick No.
Moving on to the Accommodation Form, again enter ACU & your name (this form will probably be used by a different part of the organising team) and then complete your requirements for accommodation and if you are arriving early for optional excursions. The prices are shown on the form in Euros, however I have detailed below the £ prices you will need to pay the ACU. If you have booked the Festihuts, Tenthouses or Lodges with the organisers or the excursion to the Viking Ship Museum, please write your booking number on the edge of your Accommodation Form. Finally sign & date the form & calculate the amount you need to pay. Prepare a cheque made out to the Auto Cycle Union (it may help to enclose a slip to show how your payment is made up) & retain one set of forms, you’ll need them when you arrive at the rally, and send the other set with your cheque to the address below. Entries should be sent by the 8th April 2019 to:
