    Hi Folks.

    So as not to miss out on the Valentine weekend this year, I reserved the rally field many many weeks ago at:

    Grange Park at S c u n t h o r p e.

    http://www.grangepark.com/


    Address is:
    The Grange
    Butterwick Rd, Messingham,
    S c u n t h o r p e,
    DN17 3PP
    01724 762945

    on: 12 - 14th February 2010

    We will be located on the flat rally field but unfortunately this does not come with EHU, there is water on the site, 2 loos, and showers that are open all the time. Don't worry about not having EHU, there should be plenty of us with generators to top up batteries if necessary.

    There is plenty of hard standing and grass for those that prefer a softer ground. Either way we will all be pitched together.

    The club house should be open on the Friday evening providing there are enough of us that want it.

    There will be a meal on the Saturday night - menus will be posted tomorrow night along with the prices.


    The camping fees are £8 per night

    For those that want to brave the elements and do some fishing the price is £4 per day. (Don't forget this is the place where the fish literally fight to get on your hook).

    It would be nice to have a boules competition on the Sunday (weather permitting) so bring your boules sets along.

    If you just want a relaxing weekend to just have a laugh then this meet is also for you.

    If you want to join us then please let me know and I will add you to the list.

    See you soon
    Pammy

    You're on.

    Subject to weather. I'm not struggling 3.5T over the Pennines if snow is falling.

    And subject to surviving New Year's Eve.

    Yep Pam,

    We're up for that please, again, subject to prevailing weather conditions. It often snows in February. :Wink:

    Hi Brian

    Really glad you and your lovely wife have decided to join us. Tell her though that she won't have to help me over any styles at this meet :Rofl1::Rofl1:

    It's not true she said. You've plenty of style, you just needed a hint of blusher and a bit more eye liner.

    The green wellies, the duffle coat and the Gucci handbag went together perfectly.

    Please put us down for this as our winter pitch is close to this venue. It will be the first meet we've tried - so hope you'll be gentle with us! :Laughing:

    The loan of a generator if needed will be much appreciated. :thumb:

    Cpease - adding you to the list, glad you decided to join us.

    Sandj - who are you again??? :Rofl1: Oh I remember now - you're them nutters from up north who always make the meets great fun. Really hope you'll be able to make it.:Wink:

    Will add you to the list provisionally - just let me know if for some unfortunate reason you find out you can't make it. Get it booked off now Jan - the early bird catches the worm and all that.:BigGrin:

    I have negotiated a price for the following menu.

    Its 3 courses, at £10.50 per head.


    STARTERS


    Stilton and Mushroom Bruscetta
    or
    Minestrone Soup with Crusty Bread



    MAIN MEAL​


    Pan Fried Chicken Fillet topped with Tomato Basil and Mozzarella
    or
    Grilled Fillet of Salmon with Leeks and Smoked Bacon
    or
    Peppered Pork Schnitzel withy Creamy Pepper Sauce
    or
    Roast Beef and Yorkshire Pudding with Horseradish Sauce

    All served with seasonal vegetables and potatoes


    DESERTS​


    Treacle Sponge and Custard
    or
    Individual Sherry Trifle



    You have plenty of time to ponder over this as I don't want to know what you want until 10 days before we get there. I'm sure you will agree that it is a varied menu and something there for every type of taste.

    If there is anyone who needs a vegetarian or other special diatery requirement then also please let me know.

    Looking good so far. We have 8 vans going so far but there are loads of places available so come on you lot think ahead. Christmas will be over before you know it.:Wink:

    Pretty awesome.

    Fingers crossed for the weather. From here we either head for Chesterfield or over the M62. Both are not user friendly in the winter.

    We are a possible but could not get there until the Saturday, also it is our son and my brothers birthdays, that weekend so things could change (although my brother has a caravan would he be allowed?).

    We would love to join you all. Just bought a motorhome this afternoon, collecting it 31/01/10 so would probably be our first outing. If no snow over the pennines we should be able to join you,

    Seems like another excuse for this meet - two birthdays wow

    Everyone is welcome at the Fun meets, we used to have some funsters come with a trailer tent - who are we to turn our noses up at any one who wants to come and have a good time.They will be made most welcome.:thumb:

    I will put your names down as provisional - let me know if this turns into a confirmed Yes or if you decide not to come. I hope you all decide to join us though.
