    I'm looking into holding a rally in Portugal for the whole of February 2014. This will be on a mainstream site. I've a couple of ideas but not approached anywhere yet because I need to have an idea of numbers. As this will have a bearing on the prices I can negotiate.

    At this time of year the weather iis unpredictable, it can be absolutely stunning with high temperatures or decidedly Brighton, so a mainstream site with facilities and a decent town within walking distance will be a priority. This could of course be a pre-Malaga party:Smile:

    So if you are interested in a gathering on a site in the Algarve for all or part of February, please let me know. ASAP.

    There are at least four of us funsters planning on being down there about that time Jim, I am sure that we would want to join in with your proposed funster meeting.

    Chicken and Egg situation Jim.

    Tempt people with an attractive site.

    Last time a tribe blindly followed their leader he walked into the sea.

    Or you could be brave and go for the better climate in Morocco. A little bit more money to get there then cheaper when there.

    Here, sign this form in triplicate. Get it and a photograph ( 20" x 16" this saves Jim buying wallpaper for his toilet ) signed by a public notary.

    This year we require a DNA swab. It makes sorting out the bodies after a really good meet so much easier.

    Make sure your will is up to date.

    I will do just that, soon, Plenty have already committed for Malaga and Moroc so there is plenty of choice. This trip will definitely be the Algarve though. I just need to see how many "maybe's" there are so I can get the ball rolling.

    Peace and quiet shattered.

    Never mind... at least the Algarve is a safe distance from QMJ. :thumb:

    Any Funsters going down to this meet through Portugal are welcome to drop in... :Wink:
