    NEARLY HERE
    Well the attendees list is growing, we can take many more, we have been allotted a field big enough for as many as we can fit in, so book your time off work, if you need to, and come and enjoy the company of other like-minded people.
    £6.00 per night , can’t beat that, payable on arrival, but remember no electric or toilet facilities so you should be self sufficient.
    We have also been given the use of the barn, whoopee!!, so no problem if it decides to rain. The ground is good even in heavy rain, as we found out on our reccy.
    There will be lots going on for those that wish to partake, but plenty of time to chill too.
    Keep an eye out for a thread asking you to supply us with some information we will need for booking in etc. This will be coming through a couple of weeks before the gathering starts, and it is important that everyone fills it in, if they can.
    Here are some of the things that will be happening over the week.
    Sunday 8<SUP>th</SUP>, Monday 9<SUP>th</SUP>, Tuesday 10<SUP>th</SUP> Wednesday 11<SUP>th</SUP> <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>
    Chilling out mainly on these days, but you can visit the ‘Meet & Greet Tent’ anytime, there will be tea/coffee and biscuits provided, in this tent at times. Cups not provided.
    Bring your musical instruments with you and you can join others in the ‘Music Tent’, (whether you are learning or not), for jamming sessions. Or if not playing, you can sing along or just listen, you may need some earplugs though.
    Social evenings in the barn
    Wednesday 11<SUP>th</SUP> <o:p></o:p>
    3.30 p.m. Afternoon Tea – to be held in the Meet and Greet Tent – Tea/Coffee provided, some cakes would be nice – anyone any good at baking? If not a shop one would be good, we’re not fussy.
    Thursday 12<SUP>th</SUP>
    As above but we will be having a communial BBQ. You have the use of the charcoal/gas BBQ – bring your own meat, etc. Time of this to be confirmed.
    Friday 13<SUP>th</SUP>
    As above but instead of a communial BBQ we are making arrangements so that those that wish can buy fish & chips. In the evening there will be music in the barn plus karaoke and Irish Bingo.
    Saturday 14<SUP>th</SUP>
    10am to 1pm - Saturday Market (stall holders are yourselves) in the barn if raining, if not outside. You can sell anything you want (within the law), i.e. cakes, handcrafts if you have a talent, clothes, any spare parts, even the kitchen sink if you want, so get baking, clearing out your attic, wardrobes, drawers and garages.
    4.00p.m. – Join us for a laugh when we will be having a few activities for those that wish to participate, if not come and watch, it will be good fun, i.e ‘Bush Carpenter’ (how good are you with a hammer?), Fray Bentos Pie rolling comp. (had to repeat this, it’s such a laugh – not as easy as it looks though), Egg Race with a difference, Balloon Competition and more. Good prizes to be won.
    Some other activities will be going on during the week so you will not get bored. You will receive the information on these on arrival.
    6.30 p.m. Join us in the barn for a Jacobs Table (this is where each member takes a plate/s of food suitable for a buffet, where we all tuck in, so please remember to bring something with you). You will also need to bring your own crockery and cutlery in case needed. This will flow on into the evening where we will be having music provided, so don’t forget to also bring your own chairs, bevvies and glasses. Plus Irish Bingo.
    Dance the night away.
    Sunday 15<SUP>th</SUP>
    10.30 a.m. We will be doing the usual bacon butties, bring your own tea/coffee – donation of £1.00 each would be appreciated.
    The rest of the day you can chill, possibly hold another communial BBQ if required, depending on the numbers left, if some are staying on til Monday. 16th.
    If you are not familiar with Rutland Water, there are sufficient footpaths for walking enthusiasts, dog walking and bicycle rides. We are informed one of the rides is 20 miles long and you can tag along with others if you want.
    Also there has already been a thread on this, if you are thinking of changing your RV/Motorhome, you can advertise it on the forum and bring it along with some FOR SALE signs, you never know you might just find a buyer, alternatively if you are looking to buy, you might find it here.
    There is also a mobile motorhome mechanic on call, he will be at the site during the week, so if you need any jobs done or habitation checks, even to have a solar panel fitted, he will be your man. It would be a good idea to arrange this beforehand to make sure he can fit you in. Call Steve on 07976 167477 – You get 5% discount for being a member. Also if you have any problems whilst on site, just give him a call.
    What we also need is for you to bring along a recipe with you, for a meal that you cook in your RV/motorhome that you would like to share with others. We will be compiling a recipe book at a later date and when completed it will be sold in aid of a charity. There will be a post on the forums for other members to submit their favourite recipes too.
    For those of you that are not too keen on gennies, we are sectioning an area off as a ‘NO GENNY ZONE’.
    We would also like to ask if anyone is into Zumba or other form of exercise and would like offer their experience by holding informal sessions to share with other members during their stay.If so please pm us.
    We would like a couple of First Aiders to put their names forward, should the unexpected happen, so if you are willing, please send PM.
    Any questions please send us a PM.

    All the information will be in your welcome pack - just remember to bring something for the Jacobs Table and meat for the BBQ if you intend to join us.

    See you there.

    I found a sign for sale today in France

    There I was in the E'Lecrec supermarket this morning and I found a French sign .. for sale in french.... great.. thought I could use that at Rutland Water.. something different.

    Yes it was until the price €9.30 ... to much for a little bit of plastic.

    so it is to be a bog standard UK made at home selling the RV.


    Now to find all the junk to sell on a stall.:Wink:

    Another bump, by way of a suggestion. :Smile:

    Garry, why don't you or Nigel ask Jim to make this thread a sticky for a specified period, that way keeping it at the top of the Rallies & Meets forum?

    It's just a thought.

    Jock.

    I reckon Bob and I are going to be kept busy by the Sundowners at this one :BigGrin:

    If the Rallies and Meets section is used for organising and registering interest only it will be easier for everyone to keep an eye on what is going on!
