    We have just set up here on the Wirral for a few days after a great weekend meet at Misterton.

    It was a a pleasure to meet up with some [STRIKE]old[/STRIKE] previous friends and to put faces to a few more screen names.

    The weather, after a wet Friday evening turned out much better for the remainder of the weekend.:Cool:

    We would both like to thank and compliment Sheila and all her helpers for making it such an enjoyable meet which we finished off with a very tasty bacon roll this morning:thumb:

    Thanks again one and all.

    Yes, a big thank you to Sheila and Mick and Shirley and Andy everybody else who made it a great weekend, including Suggs (hope that's right) for his excellent music. Why did you make so much bacon? I had to have 2 rolls this morning, just to be polite of course. If there was any left you might have thought we didn't like them. It was great to see everybody again, some of whom we haven't met since last year.

    Thank you again. :BigGrin:

    Ivy and Sandy

    Great meet as usual.
    Good company, good food and entertainment.
    Great job by Sheila, Mick and the team, (the team and the food get bigger every year).
    Thanks for the work involved to bring it all together.
    Pauline & John.

    We can only second what's already been said and give a big thanks to Sheila and co for organising such a great meet. Sheila certainly goes the extra mile in trying to make sure we put on a few extra pounds over the weekend :Doh:

    The welcome and the chance to make lots of new friends was great. Enjoyed the walk and the joint bar-b-que. Suggy and his guitar were excellent - thanks Graham.

    Looking forward to seeing you again soon.

    Al and Gill

    Mick & Sheila & Andy & Shirl

    What more can we say? Thanks for organising another cracking weekend and providing the Woppa (WPA) beer, bacon sambos, countless cuppas and home made cakes.:Smile::Laughing::BigGrin:

    Thanks also to Graham the wandering minstrel for his guitar playing skills and sing along sessions.:thumb:

    Also a special thanks from Lynda & myself to our good friends Andrea, Jeff, Val, Bob, Amanda, Dave, Leanne, Paul, Shaun and Nickie for the cards and lovely gifts which they gave Lynda for her forthcoming birthday. :thumb:

    Finally a big thank you to all those previously mentioned along with everyone else who attended the rally, who pitched in to make Lynda's 'surprise' birthday BBQ a great success.:Cool:

    :thanks2::thanks2::thanks2:
    Pictures to follow once Jim has kindly created a Misterton 2102 album.

    Hi All,

    Mick and myself would like to thank all the funsters who attended this meet, and who despite us having to tell them the bad news that the marquee couldnt be erect, rallied round and set up what can only be described as a bedouin camp, composed of 2 RV awnings with sides and 2 popup gazebos kindly lent by the stig (andrea & geoff) and algill (gill & alf), with a 3rd RV acting as a windbreak amanda 300gt (mandy & dave), you see RVs do have their uses :Rofl1:.

    We would also like to say thanks to Shirl and Andy who were a great help in making this meet happen.

    But most of all to the funsters for doing what funsters do best have FUN.

    Thanks again for great company, great music and for being there xxxx


    Sheila & Mick

    Adding our thanks (along with all the other funsters) to Mick & Sheila for organising such a fantastic weekend.

    Great music from Graham on his 12 string guitar ( I can't even manage 4 strings :Sad:) and various backing musicians.

    No doubt Jock is regretting telling everyone how wonderful the Black & Tan was at the pub as when he went for a refill they had run out!!

    Thanks again, can't wait for the next one.

    Graham & Jane

    We had a fantastic time too. Loved the long dog walk over the fields to the pub and back down the canal. :beer: Ralph and I met more people from the forum , putting avatars to faces. :Eek!:
    The surprise bbq for Lynda , turned into a massive production. Enjoyed by everyone , in the sun. Even our twins ( nearly 16 ) came out into the light , without turning into dust .
    Candles were blown out for Lynda ( canopus ) and Dave ( manda GTL) .:thumb:
    The entertainment in the marquee from Graham 2nd to none ably assisted by Lynda and Ken .:clap: More food , cakes , nibbles. :Blush:
    Jacob stayed home as he was working ( he has a weekend job now ) and it was still standing ( and tidy ) when we got back.
    The dogs are cream crackerd. We are half a stone heavier , no joking.

    Thankyou to Mick and Sheila Andy and Shirl and everyone else who brought things to help out , whether it be for the marquee , or BBQ . It made the whole weekend very enjoyable , for everyone.
    We are so glad we joined MHF .

    You should have had the breakfast in Misterton, REAL BACON, fried to order, I like mine organic free range, crispy. DELIVERED.

    Then I was asked if I would like a fried egg, bought to my table by Shiela in a snazzy little basque and high heels..Eggs never travelled more than 60 yars from hen to my belly....

    Extra Bacon by Andy and Shirl how that babe can butter her baps is a sight for sore eyes.

    All in all, 10/10 I will be there again next year with my two sausages. as long as I can send Sundance another virus to keep him away,,,,

    A big thank you

    We enjoyed the week-end at Misterton and the hosts Sheila,Brian,Shirl and Andy along with others created a wonderful and surprising friendly enclave with their RV's forming a circle,
    all we were missing were american indians encircling the camp.
    We were very surprised at the ingenuity and resourcefulness of the individuals who put
    up the massive meeting area for us all to congregate in with space to spare.
    Well done all of you who were able to make our first Fun meeting so enjoyable.
    Thank you to you all.
    Ann & Harry :thumb:
