    Thanks all, just got home as we had to leave early.
    Thanks to Jaws and Family for organising the events and sunshine as well!
    Took us a few Gin and Tonics to forget about the noise, after that it was fine! Could see why you moved.

    Enjoyed it all, will put some pictures on our Blog now we have an Internet connection, and can upload some here soon -
    Good to meet you all for our first time to a Fun meet, and had a great time. :BigGrin:

    Cheers

    Not sure about rock n roll
    The group next to me where very ignorant no thought for otheres. Started. Putting wind brake poles three inches from my motorhome
    After keepIng people awake till early hours in the morning

    I am no party pooper however a little politeness goes along way
    It took me back 20 years to my caravan days but I concidered others back then as I do now

    What a great weekend and an amazing amount of money raised. Loved the fun and games. Well done Jaws. You did us proud. I met some lovely people and also a few to avoid when I want peace and quiet. :Rofl1:

    Brilliant weekend and so glad we could make it this year, and what weather we had, it makes such a difference. :BigGrin:

    Well done John and all his family for all their hard work, we had a great time and really looking forward to the next one. :thumb:

    Sunday lunch and a pint. :thumb:

    The auction / moped racing and all the silly games, :Rofl1: Loved it. :Laughing:

    Great meeting old friends and meeting new ones, gave some funster stickers out and sorry if we never got to chat if you were there, but we think some might have been funsters that we thought were with the bike club. :Eek!: :Doh:

    We will catch up with you next time. :thumb:

    John said it will be funsters only next year, so get your names down, you will not be disappointed. :thumb: Bob and Jane.

    Definitely a funster meet next year - I will have withdrawal symptoms if its not done next year, and we all know the consequences of that and I am getting a little old for pole dancing :Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    The sunday lunch was excellent value for money and the fun and games were beautifully spaced out. There was no pressure to take part (for others hehehehehehe but john knows we're game for a laugh) and the sun shone

    We didnt want to come home. Waiting for next years meet to be advertised all ready.

    Got some fabulous bargains at the auction which was a wonderful bonus

    Well done and wtg to John Maureen and their family

    We thoroughly enjoyed the rally at Thetford. Huge thanks to John and his family and as a result of your efforts you raised a wonderful amount of money for the Air Ambulance. We fully support what Gail (ourcampersbeentrashed) has said and hope we can all persuade Jaws to run another one next year.
    Keep your eyes open for the announcement - you won't want to miss it!

    A big thank you to Jaws and family for making the weekend such fun. How they booked the weather is beyond me - I could do with a tip!

    It was good to meet you all, although I must admit we seemed to spend most of the time around the bird group. As it's funsters only next year, all being well we'll be back and leaving the bird at home (although we may still have to bring a little something on the trailer):Smile:

    Full report late and thanks will be added, but I should just set one thing right else I will end up getting beaten !!!!

    I have run the Bird Bash for many years.. Nowadays it is bi-annual and will continue to be :thumb:

    Richard, Gay ( The Scotties ) Gail and Tony ( Our campers been Trashed ) and a few others sort of brow beat me in to at least considering doing a Bash next year.. They also said they would be very happy to help with a lot of the weekends fun and games, so yes, after words with Woman, I have decided to lay it on again :thumb:

    Gotta go book the site for next year during the week ( yep, it takes about a year to make sure it all goes to plan ! )

    Nothing stopping you doing a bird meet bi annually but us funsters cant be waiting two years to have some fun at thetford. the site was beautifully located and as for the sunday lunch - well I wish I could be there every sunday

    Of course we will chip in as usual

    and have to admit, the food was well worth every penny and well the fun was all down to everyone who attended if people dont take part it can flop in a second - but there was no chance of that with the wonderful people who attend this years meet

    with so many asking when its happening again, next years meet will go beyond expectations and with everyone chipping in the stress on john and maureen willl hopefully be a little less

    Just to add our two penneth...
    Now we're back in the land of Internet connection! Mind you, have to say it was good not to be driven by technology this weekend.

    John, Mo, Darryl and all. One word (unusual I hear you say!)

    Fan-Bloomin-Tastic... :notworthy:

    Next word, well sentence
    For you funsters uncertain about foreign lands!
    The trip down was very picturesque, the natives were very friendly, language barrier a bit difficult to overcome, but amber nectar seems to help. :drink: Local customs were easy enough to interpret, just have plenty of there' there' plasters on board bus and you will be fine. Local greeting customs involve ping pong balls, how strange! But hey I'm all for tradition!

    Seriously enjoyable time, beautiful weather was a bonus, you worked hard John and it was appreciated thank you:clap:
    Wonderful to meet some of the new funsters too, welcome aboard guys, hope you weren't put off tooooo much :Rofl1:

    Love n hugs
    XxX

    Big Thankyou's

    hi all,

    have just registered on here so that we can thank the organisers and the nice people we met at the Thetford Bash. Although we originally booked through BIRD, we decided a long time ago to take our caravan and the two boys and not go on the bike. On the way down on Friday I thought that was a great decision, but when the Saturday rideout disappeared into the glorious sunshine was not so sure...

    Although I missed my bike this weekend we met some really nice people, and will also be joining another, more caravan focused group which was recommended to us, so thanks for that.

    I am really rubbish with names but if you spoke to us, and included us, many thanks for that..especially our neighbours for the weekend , Mary and John, (think that's right?) who were especially helpful when our Gas went early on Sunday Morning. John told me that the MH lot are a pleasant and helpful bunch of people, he was right.

    Jaws and Family, you have already had my thanks on Bird, but for the benefit of this lot, Take a bow son!! :thumb:

    hope to see some of you again soon.

    Mike, Leeann, Jordan and Daniel.
    (hopefully not the clampets!)
