    I would like to thank the marshalls at Peterbrough for their sterling work in horrendoes conditions.
    In particular Bob and Jane who's efforts were "above and beyond" the call of duty".

    Thanks folks. :Smile:

    I will second that as they had to work infinitely harder in those awful conditions

    Not forgetting the sterling work they did on the weeks before the show keeping us all informed



    A BIG THANKS



    Alan and Lynda

    Thanks guys, but we must not forget everyone that helped, GJH Graham and Jill they have really got a taste for marshalling :thumb: and Jaygee Tony and Jacky and Gozomike Mike and everyone that helped with the marquees, also a big thanks to Britstops because all those in the tents on Saturday drinking the Budweiser well that was donated to the funsters by them so check out their website.

    Here: http://www.britstops.com/index.html

    Thanks to everyone for booking to camp with fun, and sorry if we never got round for a chat, we did meet a few newbies and I think despite the conditions we had, everyone had a good time and just got on with it, Im sure it will not be that bad ever again. :Wink::Rofl1:

    We had lovely sunshine today came home wash the dust of the marquees ready for Tattingstone looking forward to that, its always nice in sunny Suffok, then from there on to Newbury, so look forward to meeting every one that booked for that.:thumb:

    All i can say is, everyone got on the field, and many many many got stuck.:Doh:

    :Wink: But they're not there now. :Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1: See you all again sometime, don't let it dampen you spirits. :thumb: Bob and Jane.

    Marshalling a meet is damn hard work - you are at everyones beck and call for sometimes the silliest of request - its satisfying but everyone needs to bear in mind a LOT of work goes on before the event - the site is all marked out the day before the event and the marshals have to ensure the site is left clean and tidy :Rofl1::Rofl1: and it is totally voluntary and unpaid so

    A VERY BIG THANK YOU from both of us

    Never was so much owed by so many to so few.


    ( With no disrespect to those that did it the last time ).

    So I said to Jill "Remember 20 years ago when our Alex left school and we decided that was the end of arranging and running events for us - well I've just remembered why" :Rofl1:

    Thanks Bob & Jane for all your work and organisation. It seemed ironic that today was such a lovely sunny day. Elizabeth & John

    Just like to add our thanks both for the excellent marshalling and for making us newbies feel so welcome.

    Just need a dog, a water filter and a slack handful of solar panels and I reckon we will fit right in :Wink:

    Bob and Jane,
    A difficult job well done done in horrendious conditions.
    This was the first time that we had helped marshall a meet and seeing the work that goes into it before and during is mind bogling,certainly surprised Jacky and myself.
    Wednesday spent measuring and marking out pitches,then waiting and waiting,hour after hour for funsters to turn up (or not as the case may be)puting up tent/marquee all in the pouring rain.
    Missed all the fun of Sat and Sun as we had a prior engagement and had to get away early Sat morning, but glad to hear everyone had a good time.
    See you at Tattingstone.
    Jacky & Tony
