    Everone got here last night, some had problems caught up in traffic in the aftermath of Peterborourgh aircrash near the A1, but most enjoyed an evening of chat in the Marquee which was full.

    There are more kids here than I have seen at a meet in a while, they took over the marquee area yesterday afternoon and really enjoyed themselves with dozens of games inc swingball, skittles, target rings and boules.

    Looking forward to a lovely weekend, I'll post some pics later:thumb:

    I must have taken a wrong turn, I thought it was a long way. :RollEyes:



    Found a camp site last night, the sign says camping Bled. :Laughing:



    Have a great time.

    Had a quick walk through the Fun area whilst we were there today but no one was about :cry:having said that Im not surprised as it was raining quite hard at the time.

    pleased you all had a good time though wished we could have been there all weekend but had to attend a good friends 65th Party on Saturday.

    Hi guys and gals


    So sorry we didnt get to join you. Although we were missing the fun at newark with you all, fellow fun member Junan and her husband Mike were FAB FUNSTERS looking after us.

    We've only just found out about the tragedy on the A1 and our little bump probably meant we are still alive and uninjured now, because had our plans followed their normal course we would have been right in the middle of it on the A1.

    Hope to catch funsters next year when we have a newer motorhome. Ours is going up for sale in the next week or two as we have had the dreaded LEZ letter.

    We cant make Shepton either as I have to give evidence at court friday afternoon so missing two fun events in a row is unforgiveable.

    Safe journeys to all of you on your way home from Newark. Lovely to hear the fun is happening xxxxxxxxxx

    Many characters to mention, but Izzy and Tango were the real stars. :thumb:

    Many thanks to Jim and Sian for all their hard work.

    We had a nightmare journey home, took us 6 hours.:cry: It was a small rally and small show, but nonetheless very enjoyable Some old friends and new faces, and every single one in the marquee for breakfast at 10am and stayed chatting till past lunch. Lovely time, looking forward to Lincoln now:thumb:
