    Where else could you buy an Electric Bug bat that could kill you? :BigGrin:

    See a grown man wondering aimlessly in a dressing gown? :BigGrin:

    and at the same time have the time of your life with friends old and new ?


    YES FUNSTERS,, THE TIME HAS COME​


    After so many requests its back........

    The 3rd annual Motorhome Fun Bring and Buy meet......

    date for your diary is 23rd of June onwards......

    so what's on offer this year?

    as per normal it's nothing or everything because its entirely up to you. However this is what you can join in........


    Friday Night---


    Welcome Cocktails from Nikki's wonderful array of both Alcohol and non alcoholic drinks on your arrival (arrive early or she might of drank them all)
    if you want you can then go and enjoy some fish and chips at the wonderful restaurant



    Followed on Saturday by---
    Bring it , sell it , exchange it or even give it away at the bring and buy sale.

    Here's how it works, you can bring anything you wish to sell as long as it is motorhome related. As long as when inspector HAGGERS asks you can come up with an appropriate answer then that's fine.
    An example of last year
    " Mr Lawson, how is a crash helmet motorhome related?" answer "well Haggers, if you buy a scooter for your motorhome you will need a helmet to ride it"

    SATURDAY NIGHT
    Its American Night. A gathering outside for a big bring and eat night. You basically bring something over at the stated time, it goes on a great big table, and the lot gets eaten. Last year people brought over the most wonderful food including Suzy, Pammy, Mrs Blisters and paulusthegnomeswood. Mrs CLS produced the most gorgeous salad, so nice it looked like it was from Sainsbury's itself. :Wink: Its like a gigantic BBQ of funster proportions. :Cool:

    THEN SUNDAY

    Bacon baps and a nice 2+ mile dog walk around the wonderful Cheshire Village on Sunday Morning..... which will have its array of Scarecrows out for looking at.....



    Last year we had a total of 62 vans from all over the UK, From as far south as Brighton to as far North as Dingwall in Scotland. This event for the last 2 years has been really really well supported. Always hard work organising, but nothing is too much like hard work for a great community that is Fun.


    Have a look here at last year
    http://www.motorhomefun.co.uk/gallery/showgallery.php?cat=629
    and here's the year before
    http://www.motorhomefun.co.uk/gallery/showgallery.php?cat=590



    So there we have it The Venue as per the last couple of years is at the Cotton Arms Wrenbury. Near the wonderful town of Nantwich Cheshire. A small journey off of Junction 16 of the M6.......
    http://maps.google.co.uk/maps/place...Nantwich,+Cheshire+East&cid=43198528216545566

    There is no Electric but it's the middle of summer in Cheshire' micro climate and Genny's (up to 10pm) are welcome (sorry no kippors, Honda's only :Wink:)

    Nikki and I so hope you can make this one and keep it as successful as past years.

    The cost is a pawltry £7 per night per van, including arrival drinks and Sunday bacon Baps.....


    Things I have been asked previously so will answer now---
    No you cant bring a hot dog van and sell hot dogs at the bring and buy
    No you can't bring your transit and sell out the back of it
    private sales only, no trade stands, thanks

    ARRIVAL CAN BE FROM THURSDAY AM. IF YOU WISH TO STAY AT THE CAMPSITE PRIOR OR FOLLOWING NO PROBLEM PLEASE CONTACT ME DIRECT SO I CAN GET YOU A GOOD PRICE.


    OK FUNSTERS LETS GET IT DONE​

    All Funsters Please Note... last year this was a fabulous weekend... :thumb:

    Two pubs right on the door step... :Wink:

    Watching the salesmanship of co leader Bryan was a joy...

    Witnessing Brian Hilldweller's exceptional and unusal skill flying helicopters (others fly them around in the air but Brian prefers to fly them into the ground)

    ...not just old folk either... lots of youngsters of various ages charging around with lethal water firing weapons.

    It was brilliant...

    Sadly cannot be there this year :cry:

    PS. I am no way connected to the above firm other than being a highly satisfied customer.
