    Will MHFun:Smile: have an official presence at this show? The April one lists MHFun:Smile: as being present but not the January one.

    Trouble with this show is that the weather often makes it difficult to attend, we would have needed a snow plough last year, so there are advantages in turning up without prior booking if the weather is suitable.

    Any thoughts?

    Hi, a chance of a life time :Wink: Jim's always looking for someone to Marshal these events, I'm sure someone else would want to join you two, if you were up for it. :Eek!::Rofl1:

    We would loved to do it again, but we have an appointment in Spain we have to keep and a funsters rally at http://www.marjalcostablanca.com/en/ on the way home. :thumb::Rofl1::Rofl1: Bob.

    Its never been a popular show for fun ralliers and if I recall it had been -9 degrees, that might have had something to do with it:BigGrin:

    Problem is I have since found out we can't go anyway. Clashes with a previous engagement (wedding actually) which I had got the date wrong:Sad:

    You have missed out bobandjane (Bob and Jane) your marshals :Laughing: bashfop (Peter and Natalie) , Nearly Retired (as Grenville says he and Shirley were there) and a late RV arrival, not sure but we think it may have been Archie?

    You went out Kath, made the day of the man on the Italian food and drink stall :BigGrin: and then the Welsh contingent retired to your van!

    I thought the show was pretty good apart from the smell of warm cow dung in the sheds due to them having to heat the event. Mmmmmm , fancy an olive with that? Jane :Smile:

    If you want to call my hubby, sister and Phil Taran Las "The Welsh Contingent" ok, so be it:BigGrin::BigGrin::BigGrin:

    So we bought some italiian cheese, ham and a bottle of wine so what... we bought a crap trolley too which you seem to have missed out :Doh::Doh:

    We also asked those who spoke to us to call in and visit so what.. Drinks stall I recall sitting with some new to be funsters having tea but maybe i am wrong :Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Not our fault you had other arrangements to be with other funster's in their van instead of a night out at the pavilion with upmarkethippy and bionic pixie and the rest of us, no big deal you missed a good night ... so for retiring to our van altogether, where else would we have gone ? No one else invited us in!

    But alas when we went home it was to bed after dancing the night away and having fun at the pavilion ..wahoo and Cheynes show on the way home x

    The idea is that we all enjoy, even the "engish contingent" can do that surely !:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    apologies for not stating you as marshals as thought folk already knew this


    There is always a welcome in a Welsh home wherever it should be xxx:thumb:

    Wishing you both happy travels xx

    forgot to add I have my safety hard hat on and ducking x
