    So lets use this thread for Abbafanster posts from here on in.
    We have two options for music, Tribute Band or Disco, might be worth considering having our own set up, maybe some members have disco gear or experience as a DJ, we could hire the gear maybe. Just offering food for thought, all input gratefully received so don't be shy, let's hear it.
    I'll go for four days and see how many object, go for thirty vans and see if we can make it more, just "working" figures for now.
    Somewhere just north of Birmingham, Cannock Chase area maybe, anyone know somewhere or lives close by.

    We are stopping on a little site in the chase in between Christmas and New Year, will check it out for Funster suitability.

    Ahhh, timing depends on availability and also if it will clash with anything already on the calender.
    I'll let the thread run to gauge interest, then determine a date and find out what's available so please keep an eye on the thread.

    That would be great, if you can get back to me soonest.
    I have done a search in the chase area but nothing came up with the facilities we need such as disabled access, on site bar, dogs welcome, showers, hard standing, EHU etc. I think for a group such as ours we need all of those things and probably some others as well so we will need to look a little further afield.
    I'll spend some time on researching sites tomorrow and ring some up to test the water.

    Arr, well I can tell you now the site has none of those things but they might be near by. Maybe a pub near by but the site does not have showers or loos. The chase is very protected so big sites are rare, I think the only sizeable site with full facilities is a C&CC but don't think there is a rally field. Also think we might be a bit raucous for the C&CC":Rofl1:

    We would definitely be interested, depending on timing; nothing booked for end of May yet - doesn't really matter where. Is this the original thread or have I been missing something?

    Just a little thought, when booking and planning, it is worth looking at some of the big established show dated that pull in 70 plus funster vans so not to clash, sounds would be a good meet.

    Tried to PM you Carol, not sending so I'll put my question here. Can you please explain further, do you mean combine the ABBA meet with a show? Not a bad idea.

    Rita and I are also very keen on ABBA's music, so would be really interested in this meet, but like many others, it would depend upon when and where.

    Good luck with the "meet project" Dogman. :thumb:

    Cheers for now,

    Jock & Rita.

    Hi Just logged on and seen your pm, and replied. :Smile:

    No I didn't mean to join it on to another meet, it would make a great meet on its own, just thinking not to clash with one of the big ones, they have there own entertainment , so the Abba meet on its own would be good.
