    If I go to Shepton Mallet, I will park in the place for ordinary show goers, just like in the old days, and fly a Funster flag!

    The last time I marshalled this rally we had 50 vans there, where have they all gone? It was always a fabulous meet.

    Well a little of both to be honest. I did say that we (Van Bitz) wouldn't bother this year, but this produced discontent with the staff. It is only 30 miles away from base for us and "normally" the weather is good and in recent years not too busy.

    As a consequence mid to late afternoon a few glasses of wine are consumed (actually rum lol) which we carry on once we have moved across to our motorhomes where we enjoy the afternoon sun, relax and BBQ

    We live just down the road near Wells and Eddie is right, it use to be a really good show with loads of trades stalls, dealers and visitors. In recent years both the early year and autumn shows have been very dissapointing. I wrote a couple of time to the "Motorhome show" marketing company about the decline but got no replies.
    This show is a celebratory event marking 30 years at the Bath and West so I really hope they pull out all the stops and bring it back to life. For those who stay there are "Bootleg Blondie" on Friday night and "Counterfeit Quo" on Saturday to entertain so provided everything else is not a fake or a flop it should be good.
    For the first time in years we will be away touring Scotland at that time so will miss it. So please enjoy and let us know how it went. :smiley:
