    We always planned to have a Big Annual Rally (BAR) in a field to mark MotorhomeFun's anniversaries. This September 15-16-17-18 marks our 4th year.

    How about a gathering in a field, somewhere in the middle of the country. A regular laid-back rally, but maybe we could lay on a bit of entertainment, as well as have a couple of seminars/speakers, such as full timing, travel security, photography/photoshop, along with a bouncy castle for the kids etc.

    Keeps those dates free and if you would be interested in attending or have any idea about a venue or activities for the weekend, please shout up here. :thumb:

    Big Birthday Rally

    Great idea, we'd be very interested (but will have to sneak off on 17th to a wedding). Will think about a venue. :thumb:

    yeah, but suffolks a little too far south for us northerners for a weekend.

    something a little closer would be ideal and we really do need to celebrate funs birthday :thumb:

    edit: actually someone moved suffolk a bit further north than it used to be :Doh::Blush:

    I'm easy with the dates, would not want to clash with BobandJanes Suffolk meet, and anyway they would want to attend the BAR:thumb: maybe we could go for the first weekend, that would clash with the Newark show, or we could go with the last weekend but that puts into October and the weather that goes with it. Thinking about it, the first weekend looks best to me:Smile:

    I would be interested - there is a small site nr Chipping Norton, (http://www.cchcaravans.co.uk/30420/info.php?p=8&pno=0) only 30 pitches though. I have had a couple of repairs done here and they are good people...

    "somewhere in the middle of the country" - that would be within a few miles of Carlisle then, Jim?

    (Or have you declared independence for Scotland already?)

    Amazingly we have that weekend booked to, as it is the 10th anniversary of the start of Bikers Oracle ( the group name of the forums I help run )

    But hey, We are out of the country until the 14th, the next weekend is the B O anniversay, the following weekend is the Lincoln show..
    Nowt booked for the last weekend so far !

    Mmm....maybe not.....friday and saturday nights are £24 per unit per night with leccy, other nights with leccy £17 and the site certainly aint worth £17/£24 per night at any time.

    How about Alcester, near Stratford on Avon??
    Fairly central.
    It is the place we had our wedding weekend and he has told us if we get more than 50 units he will close the campsite for us and we can have all three of his fields...£5 per night but no ehu.
    What about the bank holiday in august????

    May I reccomend where I had the meet in the middle a couple of years ago? Good size rally field, a barn that is heated if anything goes wrong from the weather, the landlord will arrange entertainment, there is a pub on site that does food, and it is

    SMACK BANG in the middle of the country. :thumb:
