    Thank you to everyone for making Stratford a wonderful time.

    A special thanks to Amanda (ambilkate) for her invite to her party. We had a wonderful time and the spread put on by the funsters was well, special. Thank you to my wife for mixing the wonderful cocktails and thank you to myself for serving & drinking them :Blush:
    and an 8.2 mile run this morning certainly not advisable after the pink gin :Blush:

    Thank's Bob & Jane for marshalling it, thank you is the least we can say for your organisation.

    Met some wonderful new funsters this weekend, great to meet stitch up and the cider bloke as well as some old ones, especially Old mo who seems to of got younger since I last met him.

    A very special thanks to our friends Champers, it was a wonderful hangover :thumb:

    Hope Jeff and Michelle enjoy their new van.:thumb::thumb:

    Off to watch the football now and happy daze :thumb:

    Stratford Rally 2012

    Hi Bob & Jane, We are home in W Sussex and hardly a cloud in the sky now it's all over, thanks for everything as usual a great meet with all the Funsters.

    Amanda (Ambilkate) your birthday party in the Marquee will stay in our memories, what a good time we all had.

    Didn't have the opportunity for a personal goodbye to Brisey and Pamelaaaaar hope to meet up again soon.

    Off to unpack the van now :thumb:

    We eventually arrived home safe and sound on the East coast around 6.30pm!
    Now we are home the good weather will return and you will all be pleased to hear we are not attending any rallies until Pickering in October so prepare yourself for lots of sunny rallies in between :thumb::thumb::thumb:
    Tried to say goodbye to everyone but some had already gone and others were having a last look round the "show" (i.e. all 10 stalls:Rofl1:)
    Thanks to all who made the Stratford rally enjoyable and thanks for the great party Amanda, all I have to do now is book Tony in for a Detox.........:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:
    Have a good summer
    Jacky

    We would also like to thank everybody for the nice weekend, and for inviting us to the birthday party, we hope Amanda had a nice birthday. Thanks also to Paul and Nicky and Jon and Shell (on the phone) in advising us on our new mh, just 1 word of complaint I only went to have a look around stratford and buy some LED lights. :Doh:

    Stratford itself is special but The Big Party was something else, we were one huge happy family.

    A meet we'll all remember for a long time.

    A big thanks too from Rita and I, to Bob & Jane, and Brian & Joyce for all their efforts to make our time at Stratford and enjoyable one.

    A special thanks must got to Amanda, Bill & Kate for inviting us all to celebrate Amanda's 30th Birthday, and to all their helpers who mucked in all sorts of ways, to make sure that it would be a special day.............and it was. :thumb::thumb::thumb:

    Thanks to all of you.

    Best regards,

    Jock & Rita.

    A very big thank you to Bob and Jayne, as always superbly organised

    Stratford has been a superb event, what a pleasure to be in such good surroundings with such a nice group of people, so nice to meet previously met Funsters and new Funsters

    Well - it's all been said, but I would just like to add our thanks too. Just imagine a rally without marshalls. It would just be a disorganised, chaotic mess. So I would just like the marshalls to know that you are really appreciated for your good imaginations and hard work. Thank you once more Bob, Jane, Brian, Joyce, Kate and Bill and anybody else worthy of thanks whom I've neglected to mention. :BigGrin:

    Must also say thank you to all the same people as mentioned in the posts above. Brilliant organisation from Bob and Jayne, brilliant bike ride by Carol and Eddie, SUPERB party from Amanda and mum and dad, lovely to meet up with Nannyjan again after our numerous failed attempts, delicious Welsh cakes from the lovely PeterH - nicest man on the planet - great company and laughs from Lily, Alan and Linda and entertainment from Mike, Chris and supporting band..... too many to continue naming individually but thank you all.

    Well what can we say, going back to when we first posted the thread for Stratford Show, and all the negative posts about the show being cr*p and a waste of time and money, and then having to have a thread on 'Why I'm not going to Stratford'. :RollEyes::Doh:

    All I can say is we had 75 vans attend and 76 raffle tickets were sold. :thumb:

    1st £30 SPUD'N'T
    2nd £20 Laneside
    3rd £10 destination unknown
    4th £10 jerkins
    5th £6 bungy

    Many thanks to Joyce and Brian for being assistant marshals and supplying gallons of tea / coffee and rock cakes. :thumb:
    Many thanks to the bacon roll team and for supplying the cadacs . :thumb:
    Many thanks to Judy the better half of Old Mo for taking Jane to Tesco for the half a tonne of bacon and all the rolls.:thumb:
    Many thanks to all the gang that provided the music and singing.:thumb:
    :Wink: And that includes the funsters choir. :Rofl1::Rofl1:
    Many thanks to all the hard work and stress Kate and Bill went though organising Amanda's party. :thumb:

    But most of all everyone that attended this rally. :thumb: Its the members that make a great rally or meet we just try and hold it all together, and we have never been to a bad rally at Stratford, wet or dry we always have fun, and Stratford has the extra bonus of its location. :thumb:
    And yes the show is cr*p, but we never went for the show. :Rofl1::Rofl1:

    But what a week we had, great company and lots of laughs, thanks everyone, and you know what they say..................Don't knock it until you have tried it. :Wink: :thumb:

    Hope to see loads of you at Rutland or Malvern. :thumb: Bob, Jane and Izzy

    I heard a rumour that the Treorchy Male Voice Choir have decided to fold, could not stand the competition.

    It certainly brought tears to my eyes.
