    Thank you Bryan and Suzy, No not for getting Nikki drunk and making her throw up :Wink:

    For your excellent Marshalling in what can only be described as terrible terrible conditions. The last 48 hours have been the worst weather ever. Shocking aint the word.

    Shame really as the show looked really quite good, I bought some reclining chairs for when the sun does come out, and great too meet up with some new funsters too. :thumb:

    Still here, we decided to wait (and hope) for better conditions in the morning.Trying to drag the trailer out of the exhibition area tonight sounded like a silly idea, plus they reduced the beer to £1.60 a pint this afternoon so no driving allowed now.

    Thank you to Bryan & Suzy for the warm welcome we received on arrival at the show. A thank you also for the lovely brunch we had this morning I have never eaten so much in one go. Your fault it was delicious:thumb:

    It was nice to meet some of the Funsters and good to be able to put faces to names, mind you since I turned 65 the brain does not always work so excuse me if I ask names again:Blush:

    Once again thank you see you all soon

    Also now back home and nearly dry seem to have been wet constantly from 8am this morning, My thanks also to Bryan and Suzy for marshalling this very wet (weather wise) meet, enjoyed Saturday night in the 'tent' and brunch this morning.
    Thanks Bryan for running after us in that rain to remind me i had forgotten to drop the tv ariel, and thanks for the coffee Suzy when i returned to get the tent later.

    Got home about 2:15 after a diversion to see my Mum and hold-ups because Mancunians can't drive in the wet :Smile:

    Many thanks to Bryan and Suzy for the organisation and their hard work providing Sunday brunch (not forgetting Carol of course). Great to catch up with people we knew and some we had never met before.

    Pity about the weather on Saturday and Sunday but Thursday & Friday were great and the rain couldn't spoil the Saturday night and Sunday morning get-togethers.

    Big THANKS to you both Bryan and Suzy for your great organisation and brill food (I could go that extra sausage batch/roll/bap (delete depending on region!) now).
    Also thanks to all those who made us so welcome and helped us out with sorting a Solar Panel, advise on Moroccan matting, LED lights, batteries, computing stuff, and also for the kind donation of the recliner chairs (Drago35UK) - all much appreciated. :thumb:

    We thought the weather was fine, but we don't know any better - having never had it any different in any sorties up to now! :cry:

    Well everyone seems to be back home safe and sound and perhaps a little wet!

    We had a great time despite the weather, we have the windblockers on the washing line trying to dry out and the event shelter up in the garden where it will stay until it stops raining! :BigGrin:

    Many thanks to all who helped make it a great weekend. Special thanks to all of you who helped with the tent/event shelter and a very special thanks to my breakfast chef Carol for all your help serving the breakfast rolls. A big thankyou to Maggie for the tent, it came in very useful on Saturday night! Not forgetting John who helped me with the shopping :BigGrin:

    Look forward to seeing you all again soon, but I really hope it will be in better weather! it would be nice to sit out and have a bbq :BigGrin:

    Safe travels wherever you go, hope to catch up with you all again soon. :BigGrin:

    On Thursday one Funster came over to our van, thinking it was MH Fun Rally area cos we had a smiley flag up - there was nobody on the Fun Rally area at that time.
    Wasn't the weather terrible though on Sunday and Monday. It was ok pegging the rally areas out Wed, Thursday got a bit of tan
