    Hi Woody - Not sure if we can come yet or not. Any chance of posting it in the meets list as it will bring it to more peoples attention. (It will also keep it fresh in my mind date wise)

    Possibility I could be down in Poole on the boat, if any one goes to Poole Quay, look in the marina there for 'Lady K' you can see her from the quay side as she is on A pontoon which runs alongside the quay.:thumb:

    You can always PM me as I am generally on the net 24/7!

    Hi Woody.

    Try these instructions.

    Click on 'Calendar' (at the top)
    This will then show you the calendar for January 2009. You will see events scheduled for certain days.

    Under that calendar are a series of boxes.
    One says 'Add new event' - click that
    Click on 'Ranged Event'
    Jump to month - and set that and click Go

    New page will appear
    Add your title of the Meet
    Set event date for Start
    Set event date for End
    Add your information, i.e. dates, links, times, prices, phone numbers etc. Also add some info about the charity.

    Once it's all in, Press 'Save Event'.
    From this point only you can go on this page and edit it.

    Click on the Parc Verger meet and you will get an idea of how I do any meets that I may arrive.

    Good luck:thumb: Any probs come back to me. I will be on here for about 45 minutes more that's all.
    Pammy

    BTW - Every time you go back in to the calendar to edit something, make sure you press 'Save event' after.

    Less than four weeks until this rally and I can't wait. In my opinion this has to be one of the best venues for a motorhome rally going with stunning views and really peaceful location right at the back of the Poole harbour, along with plentiful wildlife.Get up early to see the herd of deer grazing in the next field or if your not an early riser wander down to the hide and see them grazing out in the estuary as well as the abundant bird life. All this for twelve quid for the weekend why would you want to be anywhere else?????????

    Only 3 Weeks To Go

    Just a small point , if you dont like wildlife or walking why not use it as a cheap weekend to get to the nearby locations such as Wareham, Swanage , Weymouth ,Bournemouth, Christchuch and of course the nearest Poole .

    Now heres an interesting question, what do MHomers wear on their feet in a MH?

    On Sunseekers, Fairline, Princess's and such like, shoes when on deck or the aft cockpit but as soon as you go inside (Saloon) shoes off.

    Hi Sonja

    Seems as if Woody isn't about at the mo' so I'll try to answer your question. Don't worry about getting there late as there are no neighbours to complain:RollEyes: . I won't be there that early as I'm on late shift that week so won't be getting away until at least 19.00hrs with a minimum 2 hour trip down

    Looks like the weather is going to be half resonable so nobody has any excuses, where else could you get to stay at such an exclusive venue for £12.00 for the weekend
