    To all those that attended the bring and Buy and helped make it such a success.

    ALL 60 vans

    Yes it was hard work for Nikki and I, But seeing the joy and hearing the kind words of all those that attended makes running a meet so rewarding.
    The meet its self was a lot of fun, but I can honestly say I was really taken a back by the standard and amount of food cooked on Saturday night. Some of the dishes were superb, so a special thank you to those that cooked, I will try and get the recepies done soon and if you were not able to give me it there and then please Pm it to me.

    It was also really nice to see so many families come and great to see them having a great time.

    So that's it for me for now, except for being volunteerd for new years eve :Eeek

    thanks to all that attended and made it a fantastic 4 days, especially Paul and Nikki for organising it.

    great to see old friends and make a few new ones as well.

    saturday night was a resounding success and once out of voice earshot all that could be heard was laughter....but what more could be expected from funsters having fun. :thumb:

    and thanks to andyman for weighing my van and confirming i can drag yet another 3 or 400kg of tat around with me.

    Absolutely brilliant weekend!!!!!
    Many, many thanks to Paul & Nikki for a rally to be proud of. Everything ran exactly to plan, and the rest was supplied by all the Funster's who supplied the humour, laughter and friendship, as usual. Not to mention the food. The official opening night was kicked off with Nikki's famous Punch, and very nice it was too.
    The food cooking was a brilliant idea, with over 40 cooking everything from main meals to puddings (oh, how we love our puddings :thumb:). Almost 100 were gathered around and there was more than ample food for all. And, if that was not enough, Paul & Nikki supplied loads of burger's, etc as well. After that it was laughter all the way, accompanied by a few Chienese Lanterns, the Space Station sighting and lots of liquid refreshments.
    It was lovely to see so many old friends and to make so many new ones.

    Arrived back about an hour ago after a fantastic meet at Wrenbury, many thanks to Paul and Nikki for organising a great meet where we meet old friends and made lots of new ones. The cook in was great with a grand selection of dishes being made by GEO, so if anyone was ill you know who the culprit was :Rofl1::Rofl1:, no seriously the dishes were good both sweet and savoury. It was good to put faces to names off the forum, once again thanks to all for making it a fantastic and friendly weekend, as for the person in the dressing gown it was as little britain says a LADY :blonde2::Eek!:, So we had to let him/her join in the conversation about leg waxing :Rofl1:
    Thanks again to all who made it a success.
    Sheila & Mick

    Hi we are back safe and sound we had a great weekend i am a little on the red side as the sun never stoped shinning, a very big thank you to a superbly organized meet by Paul & Nikki they worked hard all weekend to make sure everyone had a great time and i think we all DID, the food on sat was a great idea and worked real well, tasting all different dishes (and suzi cakes that i may have had second or third helpings off) we had a great walk on sunday morning, looking for scarecrows with a near paramedic having to be called for the so called short walk i was in need of a oxegen tent when i got back :Rofl1: also dinner in the pub was nice, we set of late afternoon without any rush was good.
    Paul and Nikki take a bow !! :thumb::thumb::thumb:

    Would also like to thank andyman for the weigh in (no not me my van ) and pleased to confirm for the first time in many years i am offically underweight . :Wink:
    To all those new people we met as well thanks for making a fun weekend but should i expect anything else from a funsters meet !!!!
