    Oh yes. It had all the right ingredients. Just a pity the weather took the edge off it. Friday afternoon Whitby lit up, looked great. But Saturday did us no favours. Luck of the draw.

    This was our first experience of "Goth". Huge grin on faces, from "Wow, stunning, I wish looked like that" to "Good god, must be blind of very brave to come out like that".

    Great atmosphere. I noticed an etiquette, you ask permission to photograph and they take it as a compliment and pose appropriately. Great.

    Thank goodness for copy and paste Ivy :Rofl1:

    Yes seconded, thanks for a fantastic weekend. Bob and Val , you were Fab hosts please put us down for the next one Cheynne was brilliant , there to help getting up on the ramps with his sand ladders and his monster truck in case anyone got stuck. Though i bet he could have pulled us off by hand too.:Eeek:
    Everybody looked fantastic in the goth gear and it was great meeting new people. Though unfortunately we cant remember all the peoples names
    Whitby was great , as were all the sights to be seen. Some of the costumes were very strange. More gimp than goth :Wink:
    The rally field was muddy but it didnt spoil anybodies fun and we drove straight off the levelers and out of the field when it was home time. It was only really where the social area was.

    Got the first load of washing in . Had a shower and are now sat in my jim jams counting down to 7pm for an Indian Takeaway.
    Ive had to bath Buster , not so much for the mud believe it or not.
    But the stink of dogs , he may be a boy , but i think otherdogs are confused as he gets mounted and licked left right and center. He was very ripe to say the least.
    Looking forward to the pics , as Ralph forgot our camera:Blush:
    Brian , you had gone by the time i got my goth gear on ! I wanted you to take some pics , so i could bribe the kids with them HaHa

    Many thanks to Bob & Val for a great 'First' meet from them. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves on site and in Whitby town itself. Must admit it felt 'strange' walking into a pub for lunch dressed in the Goth Gear but, as no-one batted an eyelid we were soon wandering in and out of the shops.
    The wet, muddy ground just made it feel like Glastonbury so it felt right to 'squelch' as we supped. Lovely Pea & Pies last night and brilliant 'brekkie' to send us on our way back home.
    It was lovely meeting old friends and making new ones.
    See you at Peterborough in April. :thumb:
    Thanks again Bob & Val :thanks:

    Home safe and sound and decided to use this thread.

    great time, thanks to all that were there, Big thanks to Bob & Val and the helpers..... especially the bacon rolls this morning along with the cakes.

    I know you were nervous Bob and Val, but you really did do a great job. :thumb:

    I know some people do not always realise what can go in to organising a meet but you get 10 out of 10 in my book, you covered all angles including engaging the wonderful Cheynne in the meet for any towing duties.

    great to meet some new funsters too, Blamethehoffman and Craig drake to name a couple as well as some we haven't seen for a while. :thumb:

    Thanks to Ralph & Bev & Eddie and Di for the company in the early hours, :Blush:

    Thank's to Smudger for Friday's life to the chippie.


    So as per our conversation on Friday night Bob, Can't wait for next year when you do it all again, so get our names on the list :thumb:

    now, having a nice glass of Wine, Indian ordered before the sad return to normal healthy duties tomorrow :thumb:

    Another big thanks from us to Bob + Val, brill weekend bring on next year :Smile:
    The sights in Whitby were a real eye opener, coming out of the loo's in the restaurant to see a 6ft odd bloke in full wedding dress and stubble is an image I'll never forget:Eeek:
    Thanks to Cheyne for the loan of the long bar to lever my stuck leg out of the ground :thumb:
    Sorry to Smudger for making him think someone was making off with his genny in the early hours :Doh::Doh:

    and finally a big thank you to all those that enjoyed the communal dog play session, great to see them all chasing round and playing I know Jax & Luna loved it and hope we can make it regular at future meets :BigGrin::thumb: and hope to see pics of them all.

    Just got sorted after getting back from Whitby, just want to add my thanks to Val and Bob for a great meet and for allowing me to collect for the poppy appeal they did a fantastic job dispite mother nature who tried to spoil things, they were great hosts Val even going to meet late arrivals even though we were all dressed and about to start our walk to Whitby, also Cheynne who kept us warm in the shelter well done that man, it was our first meet and a big thank you to all who made it a great weekend one lasting thought that has scarred me for ever was the bloke in the wedding dress it was wronge in so many ways :Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1: well done chaps Pat and Graham.

    another big thankyou to val and bob for the whitby goth meet, it is the first one we have been on this year due to hagnap organizing his bring and buy meet at wrenbury when we were in spain
    thanks for the great organization and bacon butties this morning you could say because of the conditions that they were like pigs in mud
    it was muddy but fun
    glad i didnt see the man in the wedding dress but did see a teenage boy in a goth corsett top also totally wrong in so many ways especally he was flat chested and i had come to expect big boobs as most of the other ladies i had seen earlier, i thought by golly that girls got nothing until i realised it was a lad, poor thing so i carried on eating my fantastic fish and chip lunch in the quayside restuarant.
    nice to meet a few new faces and a few old ones (older than my face anyway)let us know if you are doing it again for next year

    sorry cant make upmarket hippys meet at stratford as we will be in malta for my 50th birthday but wouldn't have minded coming for the stew and chestnuts but hey ho

    thanks again for the FUN

    big thanks to bob n val and every one for making it a great weekend meeting up with funsters old n new ,pity about the weather
    but to be honest by the time we arrived so did the sun so apart from the field being wet and me not wanting to risk getting stuck again opted to park on the track (nice n hard )
    but a trek to the beer tent but needed the exercise hope to see you all soon
    PS thanks to haggers for up grading the party bus to a posh one , just right for Nicki (posh totty)this is one meet that should be repeated:thumb:

    yes thank god for copy & paste! lol

    well, really not sure which thread to reply on....

    Val & Bob for a first meet you have done us all proud, :thumb: was a fab weekend, def put us down for next year and we'll start saving up the cardboard for the ground. :Rofl1: Think from here on in it should be known as Whitonbury with all that mud. BUt hey never stopped us all from having a great time. Lovely to put more faces to names :Wink: and to meet up with the usual reprobates!!! :Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    you should be really pleased with your efforts, and also thanks to cheynne for keeping us warm (and choked - lol) of an evening, along with the music.

    and bacon butties to die for

    loved it & well done guys xx

    love n hugs
    Andy & Jeff
    xx
