It is hoped that the 2020 Dragon will be held on the above dates. Tickets will go on sale on 1st October 2019.
The Board have considered the financial position of running the Rally as the 2019 Rally just about broke even. In recent years costs have spiralled No Club Member receives any remuneration for their services. All support is totally voluntary and for the benefit of the Club. An increase in ticket price is inevitable if we are to continue.
The Board has therefore concluded that for the 2020 Rally tickets prices will be as follows:-
For those paying Direct to Bank (which was trialled last year with great success) the cost will remain for this year only at £25 + two SAE's.
For those paying by cheque the cost will be £30 + 2 SAE's.
For those paying by Euro the cost will be 35 Euro's. No SAE's required but a postal & an email address are both essential.
Further details will appear in late September.
Like the Elephant in Germany and the Crystal Rally in Norway, is one of the Great European rallies usually held in the bitter depths of winter. It's where the enthusiasts go to talk shop, indulge in nostalgia, tell stories of their two-wheel exploits, make abusive comments about car drivers and fine weather motorcyclists (who only bring their motorcycles out in the summer).
The Conwy and District Motorcycle Club started the Dragon Rally in 1960 and it takes place in winter in the beautiful mountains of Snowdonia, North Wale and serves as a meeting place for motorcyclists all over the Continent.
Participants are limited to 1400 and they're not told the location of the camp site until they have reported to one of the caravans, which are positioned within 6 to 15 miles of it, for ticket stamping. Once there, they enjoy the Conwy & DMCC's warm welcome and hot soup as well as the local amenities including some fabulous pubs.
Each year the Dragon Rally badge is either red or white or green; the colours of the Welsh Flag, and is generally classy and collectable.
The venue has been held at numerous sites including:-
