    A big thank you to all those who gave their time to ensure this rally was a success, far too many to name... all the rally marshals and quite a few other enlisted helpers worked really hard from Wednesday to Sunday ensuring all those attending our largest ever had a good time.

    Marshals, musicians, bacon cookers and bread roll butter'ers, raffle ticket sellers, buyers and donators, tent up and downers, raffle callers and tidy uppers. THANKS :clap:

    We've not counted the event shelter raffle money yet but we know from the books sold its £400+ :thumb: That will buy us another three Shelters:BigGrin:

    It was a very large rally, but it had a small family gathering feel to it. We thoroughly enjoyed every moment. Thanks to all the ralliers you made it a special one. Brilliant:thumb:

    Well another fantastic fun meet bites the dust, and we all gather our strength for the assault on the next event.

    One certainly needs an iron constitution for these rallies, and plenty of energy to keep up.

    The effort put in by all the Marshalls (you know who you are) is very much appreciated and the smooth running of this huge gathering was down to you guys and gals.

    And thanks to everyone else who contributed to making this such an action packed and enjoyable time............ you are all stars and it is your donation of time, prizes, food, drink etc etc that make being a member of fun so rewarding.:thumb:

    As newbes we were made very wellcome.Although we had a long walk back to our van as we camped with the riff raff.
    Breakfast was great and thanks to the lads and girls who sweated buckets to cook the food.
    We had to leave before the end of the raffle.
    Hope the girls won something with our tickets:Smile:
    Have booked for Lincoln as long as there has not been a mess up with booking will see you there and this time in your area

    Great first time experience

    We heard of Motorhome Fun through a chance meeting with Carol and Eddie in Bourton on the water. They invited us to join the Craig at Malvern and everyone we met over the few days was most welcoming and inclusive. I really enjoyed the music session and having never played along with a group before I want to thank Barrie, in particular for making feel at ease and to Stu, Mike, Richard, Martin, Rex and the others all your encouragement. Having really enjoyed the Fairport music festival at Cropredy the previous weekend, and had great weather all along this weekend has topped off a super trip for us.
    My thanks once again to Eddie and Carol for your warmth and welcome and to all of you at Motorhome Fun for your inspiring community.
    Slán,
    Liamog

    Another fabulous meet, with great company and so many new funster's whom we loved meeting , weather behaved and excelled itself thankfully :Cool:.. thank you to all the Marshalls that worked so hard to make sure we all had fun :thumb:

    The cheese n wine was a fab get together and meeting so many new folk , but do wish folk would get chairs that you cant slide off but at least I saved my drink :Rofl1::Rofl1:

    We went walking up n around them there darn Malvern Hills on the Saturday geo caching which took us over a 10 mile hike which left us shattered for the Saturday evening supper alas

    But we recovered in time on Sunday morning for the brilliant bacon roll feast .. thank you again for all who kept us well fed :Wink:

    Still recovering we just chilled and left mid day Monday

    ANOTHER FABULOUS MEET RUN BY MOTORHOME FUN XX

    Sorry to be late (...again!:RollEyes:) while JJ seemed to get easy internet I seemed to always have no signal or so poor it put me off after having waited ages!!
    Anyway...it was really a wonderful meet. Meeting up with old friends of course but as well so many new faces I was happy to put names on and vice versa! Not for long though as my memory is a bit faulty with English names.
    Sorry to the other marshals if I have been a pain now and then , not being able to get all the usernames when told at the entrance of FUN fields.... too many different accents did not make it always very easy:Blush::Blush: I did enjoy the job though!!

    I hope I (we) will be able to come back again soon ...time will tell!

    Many thanks to all the nice funsters I have met, I've enjoyed each chat with each of you.

    I have seen marvellous children too! Ethan (welshcowboy' eldest son) was one of them! What an amazing little boy!! He's been caring his baby sister and brother nearly all the day time pulling them in 2 little wagons; cuddling and kissing them when they were a bit sad or angry...well done Ethan, your parents must be very proud of you!!I am very happy to have met you!!:thumb:

    Plenty of nice and happy souvenirs!! Thanks to Gail for all her efforts to make everyone at easy and who succeeded in making me drink alcohol:Eeek: Tony has been a busy bee too:thumb: I wish I could have stayed longer but had arranged other things for the evening.

    Wishing to see you all (errr not in one go please:Eeek:!) for an overnight stop on your way to holidays in Spain or Portugal! I'll try to be the best host possible:Wink:

    Affectueusement à TOUS

    Frankie:BigGrin::BigGrin::Cool:

    Whoops ...nearly forgot little Coco! Please Stewart , give her a nice stroke from me ...I love your little doggie!!

Thanks to all the musicians who entertained us and a sprcial thanks to Martin and Carron for their friendship anf useful tips for our next French adventure . See you all soon I hope. Nick and Carolyn.:Smile:

    Thankyou Jim, Sian and everyone for a wonderful meet again, it seems the meets get bigger and better every time!

    Thanks again to Jim for his help with our little problem which seems to have been sorted now.

    It was great to see everyone again, especially JJ and Frankie who we have not seen since Marjal!

    Malaga can't come soon enough!!
