I am very pleased to announce that our hosts, John and Lisa, the owners of Avon Bank Meadows have been very busy in the Lockdown period.

They have installed an outside 'facility' in line with COVID guidelines for the 'convenience'? of all attendees.

Get there quick, before they install a cactus!

Emmit Did I read somewhere that you are organising a charity book sale at one of the meets, or did I dream it? 🤔

Hi Janine,
You are not mistaken. Wherever we go we attempt to sell good clean paperbacks for the benefit of Prostate Cancer UK.
We were away last week and received £38 from the attendees at Porth.

The sale will happen at ALL of the events run by us (and we will be begging for further supplies at events we attend.)e

Emmit . Mary and Derek, I am very sad and not just a bit annoyed to have to tell you that Lesley and I have to cancel. Whatever is medically wrong with me has worsened and the MH is misbehaving. Currently we are at Nordens (Isle of Purbeck) and hoping for a weather window tomorrow to make the journey back to Yeovil.

I hope that you have reserves and that somebody can benefit from our withdrawal albeit at the last minute. I hope all goes well at Topsham and everyone has a great time. All the best.

Good evening Funsters,

We are currently 'chillin' (No G) after a fun filled day??? siting Funsters at Topsham Rugby Club.

In addition to giving our thanks to our Co stewards, Malcom and Teresa (Damelza) and John and Brenda (John W) for the sheer hard work in siting 3 dozen vans in somewhat less than ideal conditions, and, the Funsters acceptance of being asked to drive across, shall we say, challenging conditions. Yes some got stuck in the mire, but, with the help of muscle, they were extracted and sited.
One thing is for certain, had the event been scheduled for 24 hours earlier, I doubt we would have had an event at all.
Exhibit 1 is a photo taken on Sunday evening. This God made lake wasn't there when we arrived 5 hrs earlier. That's what the weather was like on Sunday.
Tomorrow we open up the bookstall, selling Raffle tickets and accepting prizes for same. No cheating at the Competition and we will have some good news to share on the whiteboard.

Regards

Derek and Mary aka Emmit

Well we are home early, purely because of the weather, and having things to attend to at home.

The meet was lovely. The location is perfect for walking and cycling, with trails and paths leading to so many different places.

We had aimed to walk to Exmouth along the Exe Trail on Wednesday, but we got as far as Lympstone Village, and found a lovely pub, where we sat in the sun and had a drink before catching the train back - a lovely trip.

That’s another plus for the location - the train is a short walk from the rugby club, and the destinations are many.

We didn’t eat out, but plenty of Funsters did, and all the recommendations were good - so all in all a brilliant meet.

Emmit Derek and Mary, Damelza Teresa and Malcolm and johnw Brenda and John were excellent organisers and it was just such a shame the weather was so rubbish.

Thank you to them for organising such a lovely meet, in really challenging circumstances, and we really hope it happens again next year.

Going to see Mum tonight Emmit and Damelza, and I really hope she likes her glass mug .... :wink:

Thank you to one and all for supporting us in the charity Raffle.
At the end of the evening we have four prizes remaining unclaimed.

I have to say, without question that each prize is worth claiming.

The winning tickets are:
Green 355
Green 559
Pink. 741
Orange 160

If you hold any (or all???) the tickets, come to our van and claim your prize.

Home after another lovely meet despite the weather. Our house appears to be in one piece after two weeks away, the recycling bins are full!

It’s a great spot that’s for sure. Thank you Derek, Mary, Teresa, Malcolm and also John and Brenda.

Morning All,

We hope your webbed feet will recover from Topsham.

Despite the weather, the squelch, the puddles, I think the event went well.

It's a shame that we couldn't get to have a social but you would all have had trench foot
if you'd have stayed in one place for any length of time.

Having said all that, the weather contributed in a positive way towards the charity we support.
We have added all the pitch fees that you gave up by leaving early, and I don't blame any of you in the slightest.
to the money's raised by the sale of books, 'Guess the sweets in the Box', 'Lotto Bonus Ball' etc
and, as a result, this morning I am very pleased to tell you that I sent off a cheque to Prostate Cancer UK
to the sum of £1018.95!!!

Mary and I would like to thank each and every one of you for your generosity and Bon Homie during the event.

Kindest Regards

Derek and Mary aka Emmit
