    A very helpful funster recently posted up the dates of some of the shows for 2014 and we all love a show.

    My 50th Birthday bash which is being held at Waldegraves, Mersea Island, near colchester essex clashes with a motorhome show.

    I cant do it the following weekend as it clashes with another and we wouldnt get the cheap pitch prices as its a bank holiday weekend. The last weekend in May is not viable due to school holidays and pitches already booked

    I dont want funsters having to choose between a show or my birthday bash so please can you vote on the poll so I can make an informed decision.

    Please choose which suits you best

    You can choose more than one and your votes are confidential. Please help me make the right decision

    thanks funsters

    I wish you well with the meet no matter what date you choose. It is a bit far and by the time you add in extra charges for 2 dogs also a tad on the expencive side for us, but then I'm a cheapscate and can't leave the CL at that time of the year anyway.:thumb:

    I am not sure they will charge for the dogs this time. They are not charging for dogs for the winter meet.

    It depends what I can negotiate but completely appreciate that it would be a long journey for you .

    There might yet be two birthday bashes hehehe one at the Newbury show.

    Waldegraves was chosen as they have statics that will accommodate family and friends as well as funsters. Theres no statics at newbury and the few family I have left couldnt travel that far.

    We were going to come to your birthday bash on the way to the Thetford bash, which is now cancelled for this year.

    We're gutted that it's just too far to come for the weekend and won't be there. :Sad:

    Hope you have a great time whenever it is :thumb:

    Gail, we would love to come to your birthday bash. I'm not fussed about the Newbury show as we pick our Funster rally's by location rather than the actual show, Newbury is not a place I have a burning ambition to go to! However, I expect the size and tradition of the show will mean that many will want to attend.

    BUT.... It's your party and you should have it where and when you want to. It should be your call.

    Is the Dorset Fun Rally 16th to 26th June any good? Up to now there are almost 60 Units pledged so might be an option. I can PM or post the list if you wish.
