    just got back from our first rally at newark and didn't know what to expect, but we had a great time and met some really nice, friendly people, nice to put faces to names and meet people like andyman, a&k,pappajohn, pappa smurf, diablo, bugsy, forest boy, and many more so my apologies to the many more that are too numerous to mention, we will definatly be joining you all again at another meet and di picked the name long suffering wife although she said she was only joking and my daughter says her name is poor daughter.
    a special thanks to mark from cls for servicing my van:thumb::thumb::thumb::thumb::thumb:

    thanks

    Nice to see you too Paul, hope the ariel worked ok and see you again soon.

    Just want to add a big thankyou to all that attended. Nice meet and thanks for all the advice we received about Taz Tara, all very helpful. Never really got to much time to speak to too many as we were so busy chatting with old faces and new.
    A special thanks to Blisters, Kay and Chelsea for the use of the generator to charge up this am, currently looking on ebay for a newone, and for the kite flying excercise. :Rofl1:

    Great turnout and Jim promised wall to wall sunshine, but next time Jim do mention the rain breaks and the force 12 winds :Wink: didn't want to leave to day as the weather was so bad. but hey ho, see you all soon. :thumb:

    Another typicaly well organised fun meet.:thumb:

    Nice to meet you Paul and it was our first rally with MHF and we also found everone friendly. Also thanks to the menmber who lent me his water container after I had run out of water when flusing the toilet.Enjoyed the Rally and hope to be attending in the future even if only so that I can wear the nerdy hat your daugher likes so much, that I bought at the Show.

    Hi all,

    It was our first time at the Newark Spring fair Show, and it was nice to meet friends old and new. It also gave us the opportunity to catch up with friends on the "other side" :Wink:, as well as some over at the ARV club
    A shame about the weather on Friday and Saturday though.

    Our thanks to Bryan & Suzy, and Jim & Sian and Family, for the organisation.

    We too are looking forward to the "Hey-hey baby" video too..............................apparently! :Eek!::Wink:

    See you all at P/boro.

    Jock & Rita.

    Hi all,

    We also would like to thank everyone for a great weekend of fun at newark despite the bad weather saturday, which was more than made up for by the lovely day on sunday. As said it was nice to be able to put faces to names and to Graham (blisters) sorry that I am not a 21 year old blonde with an hourglass figure and big boobies, but you really should stop watching the beach ball channel lol, but a more mature or even old b..g lady hee hee.
    Nice to see Bruno and John, hope youve mended shirls sewing machine John. See you all at Peterbro. :thumb:

    Hi everyone,
    We want to say thanks to everyone we met for a great weekend. It was fascinating to put a face to all the user names. everyone was so friendly and it was good to meet old friends and make new ones. Thanks to Brian, Jim and all who helped organise the weekend.
    A huge thank you to Mark for the van service .
    Hope Tara's paw is better soon, Paul. See you all next time.:BigGrin::BigGrin:
