Imp 2020 will be the first National weekend to be held in Hampshire and is at Anstey Park which is situated in the historic market town of Alton. The site covers 32 acres and should provide ample space for camping, traders and everything else that has come to be expected at a National.
The clubhouse will provide catering throughout the weekend and there will of course be a well-stocked bar! The Imp Club has exclusive use of the Finnimore Pavilion where more than adequate shower and toilet facilities are available.
The above photo was taken at the Organisers' meeting on 7th September. Here's what the organisers had to say :
7 Sept 2019 - Area Group Meeting & Meal
"A couple of weeks ago the offer of a lunch at the Alton Rugby Club was made by the club and the Lead Organisers thought it would be a great opportunity to invite a few local Club members around to the venue to see the site and to begin some discussion regarding planning. To start with we hoped for at least a bit of interest but, as the first few days turned in to a week, the list of interested persons grew to over 20. By today we had 31 on the list.
The tour of the fields and grounds was followed by a swift meeting and discussion. Lots of great suggestions were made and offers of help. The meal, catered for by the Rugby Club's kitchen staff to a very high standard, was enjoyed and lots of catch-up conversations were shared.
A little later in the afternoon, after most of the group had left, the Lead Organisers made use of the clubroom and covered the notes and ideas shared by those at the meeting. So much done; so much still to do. What is very apparent, though, is the significant interest there is in the National next year and how much people are willing to help."
