Onslow Park Rally   28th - 29th August  


Onslow Park Rally will be held over the August Bank Holiday weekend, Sunday 28th and Monday 29th August 2010. Onslow Park is situated on the A458 Shrewsbury to Welshpool road, just outside Shrewsbury and is well signed from all directions.


There are over 1000 things to see and do at the Rally, with over 40 steam engines, tractors, vintage vehicles of all kinds, bicycles, perambulators,heavy horses, birds of prey. There is a working field this year specializing in pre 1930's and prairie veteran tractors. There will be steam ploughing, horse ploughing and vintage tractor ploughing.


On the Saturday there are usually a couple of steam cars made available to the Steam Apprentice Club, which NSCA are pleased to support.
The "Grand Parade" of steam engines takes place each day at 2pm and is a wonderful spectacle.
Last year NSCA had six cars in attendance and we welcome any new members to come along and join this great display.

Anyone wishing to attend with a steam car should contact David Goddard, 01939 260595, otherwise just turn up on the day!!
Onslow Park is an NTET approved rally, and all cars attending must carry NTET discs.

 

 

 

 

 
       
The Great Dorset Steam Fair   31st Aug- 4th Sept  

Peter Williams - Event contact.

This will be the 43rd GDSF. As the only truly national steam event in the UK, this is a must for all those who have a wide interest in steam power in all its variations.
If you would like to be considered for 2011 please get your entry requests in as soon as possible and places are limited. We would also like to hear from those that are interested in helping on teh club stand this year (so you don't have to own a car!)

Please note that entry is the decision of the GDSF and not the section leader, as is always the case.
However NSCA always have a presence and both car and non car owners are encouraged to attend and join in with those members and their cars that are there.
