    I know we don't need an excuse to meet in a field and have a giggle, but I'm thinking about putting a few "themed" meets together.

    Thinking about things like..

    A Fulltimer Meet, where we might get a couple of experienced full timers, to chat to potential ones.

    Security Meet, a weekend with a full afternoon learning about how to stay safe on their travels

    Photography/Photoshop
    meet to teach a little about processing photos to upload to the web.

    If you might be interested in meets like this (can you think of others). shout up so i can get a feel for numbers and take it further:thumb:

    I would be up for something like this Jim - especially the photography one, as I am keen to learn more about it and improve on my rubbish!

    I too wouldn't mind getting to know the rugby boys, even if I do get accused of cradle snatching!:Rofl1:

    We would be interested in a photography meet Jim. Another worthy subject could be First Aid.

    Just thinking on this - any chance of a newbies 'how to look after your motorhome' and what does what on it? I'm sure there must be others who are as unknowledgable as I feel!:Wink:

    Interesting, I thought about holding a multi themed meet lat in the year,,,

    A sort of workshop meet whereby we would have something like 5 or 6 people holding workshops from sewing to music...

    I wanted a hand with my camera for example and I know there are many good photographers I could of learnt from and in turn I would offer something like a talk on understanding dementia/beating depression workshop

    Then there would be a music workshop,

    Engineers workshop,

    How too look after your van talk from one of our resident motor home engineers and a talk on morocco from someone like Dave snowbird.

    I have all the plans but you have taken the cat out the bag :BigGrin:

    Either that or great minds think alike :Wink:

    Whichever way it goes, or which method you choose, it sounds good to me! Keeping the old grey cells alive and working has got to be good!:Laughing:

    I am happy to help out on the fulltiming one. I couldn't lead it or do a seminar or anything. I am not the teaching type..

    ive just been to a speed awareness course i was doing 44mph on m5 in october at 11.30 pm and was caught for speeding as due to weather conditions it was restricted to 40 ,honestly didnt take much notice of the changed signs always thought flashing signs were recommended speeds ,but to my dismay there not .so cut a long story short .what about a highway code seminar just to refresh peoples minds

    A first aid meet would be really useful to many and something on self building a motorhome (which looks like the way we will go). Most promise to be interesting with the exception, perhaps, of horse meats :Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    HOW ABOUT ONE CALLED "GAS ATTACKS WHEN TRAVELING ABROAD" SOMEBODY ON THIS FORUM SHOULD BE ABLE TO TALK ON THIS SUBJECT AS THERE HAVE BEEN MORE POSTS ABOUT IT THAN ANY OTHER SUBJECT OR HOW ABOUT "THE BENIFITS OF EATING FRAY BENTOS PIES"???????????????
