    Well in less than a week our New Year Meet at Grantham will be in full swing, gearing up for a fabulous New Years Eve, if last years meet is anything to go by :Rofl1:

    I just wanted to give you an update as we are so close to the meet.

    Whilst there are enough Electric Hookups for all, due to the nature of the site some of the motorhomes may not be as close as they could be to a connection. So if you have any hookup extensions and/or splitters, please bring them.

    If any of you lot enjoy a bit of fishing, there is a canal that runs alongside the site so if you fancy a bit of worm drowning then please feel free to bring your gear (Geo? :Wink:).

    By Monday evening, most of the Funsters will have arrived so to give everyone a chance to say hello, Suzy and I are proposing an infomal 'meet & greet' over a cup of coffee (or tea) on Tuesday morning. Just by way of an icebreaker.
    So just come along (bring a cup) at 10:30 on Tuesday morning to either the Motorhomefun marquee if it's already up, or to our RV if it isn't :BigGrin:

    The meal on New Years Eve is all organised -They'd like to be serving the food at 8pm so I think it would be a good idea if we can be in the restaurant at 7:30; that should give them enough time to take the orders, feed us, and knock off in time to enjoy the New Year celebrations themselves :Rofl1::thumb:

    On the morning of January 1st, Suzy will be doing bacon and sausage baps like she did last year. Don't worry, no alarm clock needed :Eeek:. If you stroll, crawl or roll your way over to the marquee for about 11:00am you should find a like minded crowd of carnivores offsetting the almost totally liquid intake of the night before :Laughing::Rofl1:

    Anyway, that's it from us, except to say have a very Merry Christmas and we look forward to seeing you in about a week!:BigGrin:

    Bryan & Suzy:yeah:

    Route advice!

    Hi,

    For any attendee that hasn't been to the Dirty Duck before, here is a word of advice.

    If you are approaching via the A1 southbound, DON'T be a slave to tomtom :Rofl1:

    There is an interesting canal bridge you will have to navigate (or not) if you do :Wink:

    Best thing to do is stay on the A1 for an extra couple of miles and exit onto the A607 toward Harlaxton. After Harlaxton, leave the A607 aiming for Denton and go through the village aiming for Belvoir castle. Enter village of Woolsthorpe and at the crossroads turn right onto Sedgebrook Road (if it's signposted :Doh:). A short distance later, turn right and along a hundred yards or so the Dirty Duck/Rutland Arms is on the left.

    HTH but if you need further help, just reply to this post or please feel free to ring the site and ask for better directions :Smile::Rofl1:

    Bryan

    You're welcome John :thumb:

    BTW, I'll be using tomtom, I just added Denton as a 'via' and it works out just fine :BigGrin:
