In 1978 Pelsall began to tour the West
Country each Spring Bank Holiday. These are a family affair
with wives, children and friends going along. The resort
of Brean is used as a base and caravans are used for accommodation,
as freedom of time is essential to enable families to leave
on time for various matches. Regular hosts of Pelsall are:
Ashcott & Shapwick, Claverham, Winscombe, Bohemians,
Flaxbourton, Mendip Acorns, Midsomer Norton. The majority
of tour games have been exciting with the weather playing
