    It twas terrible :BigGrin:, never knew Funsters could get up to such behaviour.

    It was a lovely weekend and it was all down to Gail and Tony for organising it. The sun shone on the Funsters until the early hours of this morning when we had heavy rain and strong winds but the Funsters flag still flew. Lovely to meet everyone and put a face to a name. Hope to see you all again sometime.

    Dale, Graham & Emily

    Just back from the Mersea Summer meet.

    Have lots of photos to upload.

    Well what a fantastic weekend and we DID have FUN


    Friday night Pimms meet and greet with barbeque was a great success and then went into the clubhouse about 9.30ish.

    On Saturday FUN went to the carnival - yes ALL OF US

    We had a pleasant walk along the coast, past the beach huts to the start of the carnival procession, then those who were up to an even longer walk tagged behind the carnival to the showfield where lots of different events took place with plenty of stalls as well.

    The local police kindly gave one of our disabled funsters and their other half a lift back to our site as no cab could be found - what a kind officer he was. Admittedly they got some funny looks as they exited the police car - but it was ALL FUN - NO ASBOS required SCOTJIM xxxx

    In the evening we had another barbeque and some funsters went to the club afterwards whilst others enjoyed relaxing.

    Sunday morning many visited the bootsale held on site and a few bargains were to be had, but there were also some extremely overpriced items for sale too.

    We sadly said goodbye to those who had to leave in the afternoon.

    For those of us who stayed we enjoyed a fabulous and very reasonably priced 2 course meal in the restaurant on site.

    Monday and Tuesday were spent relaxing.

    Smellyfeet and his son started building a boat at the beginning of the weekend. Unfortunately I dont think they can finish it yet, as when they drove out this morning I think they left some bits behind - but not to worry - we have them here with us.

    I must especially comment on the children at the meet. They were all so well behaved and played together very nicely. They are all a credit to their respective parents.

    Over the weekend the children flew kites, played various games and everyone one of them won a medal.

    Unfortunately in the gazebo suffered some damage so its going back to the shop as where it snapped the metal is all rusty inside and as it was only purchased in June this is unacceptable.

    Weather wise apart from one afternoon we were extremely lucky with it mainly raining overnight.

    Thanks to everyone who participated. I will upload the photos soon.

    Safe journeys to all xxxxxx
