    Hi
    Unfortunately, the organisers only allow enough room for pre-booked members up to the 1st April. You are then put in general camping, but that doesn't mean you can't come over and enjoy the Funsters company, we usually have a gathering one morning so that we can meet others, we also usually congregate in the evenings, hopefully the weather is going to be kind to us this year as we do not have a marquee.

    Hi there Nigel and Pam,

    I am planning on doing the same... is there any point in trying to "con" my way into the Funsters section or are we really, really, really full up?

    JJ

    I will bring free beer but won't be able to carry it from the "general" camping area! :Wink:

    The staff at the shows are some of the biggest "Jobsworths" you will meet. They have lots of rules (mostly for good reasons) and boy, they sure do stick to them.

    I was late booking a show last year, they would not let me park up with the funsters even though there was plenty of space:RollEyes:

    Last year, Sunday morning before the show opened.. Riding a push bike along to get woman a paper

    Woman with radio and an official look on her face held up her hand in the 'stop' stance

    Excuse me sir, would you mind getting off the bike and walking it.

    I looked at her..

    I looked at the bike

    Looked back at her.................................


    Said no and rode off !! The look on her face as I left was worth a million !!!
