    As I am fast approaching being label the funster who arranged the smallest meet of the year. :Eeek: What do you think of SMALL meets. Do you like them? What makes a good meet work for you. Is it the location. Familiar faces. Entertainment. I have never been to one of the big motorhome shows with the funsters. The biggest one I have been to is the fabulous wrenbury meet. :party2:

    Only if no one turns up .:(

    I organized one .. The Lodge CL meet June 2009.. one couple turned up.. Bob and Janie .. formerly known as bobandjane

    Don't like big meets myself..
    we like small informal , not into big parties and the like.. don't need entertainment..

    a few friends under the awning sharing food, drinks and stories.. :)

    We enjoy meets of any size so long as the company is good - that's what makes them so size doesn't matter.

    I enjoy meets with any number of vans from 1 to 1000.

    Currently at a "meet" of 1 (just me) at a beautiful, peaceful parking place in Central Portugal called Quinta Majay (my very own small orchard).

    Maybe some Funsters will call in and maybe they won't.

    Had a brilliant "meet" with 2 vans in Coimbra very recently.

    So in this case size doesn't matter to me.

    Both nice in their different ways :inlove:

    Small meets are lovely, you get to know a few people much better.

    Big meets lovely too, you get to know even more people, but a bit less well :party3: cos you have to spread yourself out a bit......erm, well, y'all know what I mean!

    In two years of touring, we have yet to encounter another funster (must get a sticker)! Small is good, we have booked for three nights from 17th October at Braemar, any one care for an informal mini meet\\\/?

    Hi Hilary, what Scotjim and JJ are saying is no one turns up when we go. :ROFLMAO:

    I would say small is good, its nice to catch up with people at large meets, but always end up socialising in small groups. (y)

    The meets we organised was Max 20, but just as good with less. :)
    Bob and Janie.

    Only been to 3 so far, 2 big and one small. We enjoyed both. But we got to know more new people at the small meet (14 motorhomes) than the large ones, because you spoke to everybody there.

    We've done two rallies with the Murvi owners club this year. One had 50 vans and the one in Scotland had 5. They were different, the big meet had organised things, which you have to with that number I think. With the little Scottish meet we moved around between sites and could go to the local pub without overwhelming it. Both different, both enjoyable in their own way.

    Just noticed I'm one away from 2K. Shall it be something profound or a comment about cassette emptying? We shall see!

    Hillary, I've done meets, ( but you know that) I've done meets where I've organised for 90 vans and I've done and attended meets where there was 5 vans.
    It's about the company and the theme. 5 of us went to see status quo a couple of years ago and it was awesome, 5 of us went to caamperjam and it was more awesome, 12 of us went to shell island and that was even more awesome.

    The only thing that really concerns me is that shows get 150 vans and these smaller dos which IMO are far more fun and personal get less ....good luck with it

    We had an accidental meet of 3 vans last month. One of the best ever.
