From the February 1966 Club Magazine:
“if you attend District Association weekend rallies fairly regularly you will come across the finest cross section of the British public that you could find anywhere, and they will certainly offer you a very friendly welcome.
“Do not expect the red carpet treatment. You could well be left alone at meetings until you make it clear that you are not the lone wolf types, but show them that you wish to be friendly and they will respond accordingly.”
“No two District Associations are exactly alike but most of them organise walks or rambles during the weekend, many arrange some form of games activities for the more energetic and all provide the basic necessities of life – water, sanitation and milk. Some ramble, some play, some just laze, some work and some walk. Others study nature, take photographs, mend the car or simply give their wives a rest from the weekend chores.”
