    We trade at Landrover shows and last year we attended one at Manby Airfield, Lincolnshire. Very good venue, plenty of hardstanding/water and dumping point only, no other facilities, no hook-up but genny would be OK. The weather was atrocious last year but a good time was had by all. Plenty of off-road activities, trade stands, spectator sports, evening entertainment with bar and food. Even though we were trading we arranged a meet for members of the Facts forum. First time we met Jock and Rita and other members.

    We will be attending the show again this year.

    If anyone is interested it is being held over the weekend of 27th, 28th & 29th June.

    For any more information about the event visit - Manby Land Rover Show

    Last year we arranged a special price for motorhome owners, this year we can do it for the Fun forum if anyone is interested.

    Hi Sharon
    If anyone is interested we would love to. Last year was a blast but the weather tried very hard to ruin it.
    IMHO the MUD RUN is the greatest laugh at the event.
    . There is masses of space on grass but most of the hard standing next to the show itself is on a road, so if there are a few larger units we may make our own camp, but lets see what response we get. BTW with the deal we arranged last year it is a very cheap w/end.
    If I remember correctly, if we organise ourselves, we can arrive on thursday pm. I will have to talk to show organisers to check.

    Last year the weather ruined a lot of weekends! I can't believe it will be the same two years running........

    I think if you get all the details and put it up as a meet, it will be a really good weekend:Smile:

    Hi
    Today, we made a plan of the events that we would love to attend this summer with the 5th wheel, and apart from Peterborough and Billing they nearly all seem to be in the Lincs.-Leic. area. Sorry Linda we did not pick the venue for the Manby event.

    Manby

    Hi Nigel,
    Fantastic to hear some one else goes to land rover shows. We try to make most of them too. We will definatley be at Manby. Will be good to meet up with another landy owner.:thumb

    We will try to make it to Billng this year as well, but we suffered a little with the mud last year. We really don't like getting that dirty.

    Challange excepted

    Ok, I know we is new an all, but i am game for a bit of a challange. If you fancy a bit of fun, i hear the mud run is MUDDY, I am willing to break a habbit of not getting muddy, to accept your challange of your explorer against my landy. loser gets to walk the mud run, oh and buys a drink? If it's not been made clear enough yet, this is purely for fun and to provide hillarity for the spectators. What do ya wreckon?

    Hi Sharon
    I have spoken to the organisers and have got a special price for "Motor home Fun", it is £25 for the whole weekend, you can arrive on Thursday and leave on Monday.
    You can book on-line or on -01427 616200. You MUST say you are with M/H FUN.



    Geo you might think thats funny, but we had to get our Landy (and trailer) pulled off our pitch last year:Doh:
    You could try the mud run if you want to, there are Land Rovers to pull you out:thumb: (and a digger)
    See you there ?

    hi Nigel,
    We did not go to Manby last year, we did hear about it but were otherwise busy. As i can recall it was a little damp though. Hope this year will be a bit drier. Have driven a little of road in the past and we have been through a mud run at one of the large shows. Do you think the mud run at Manby will be like that???? Will you be haveing a go while you are there?? Will there be any facilities there for cleansing and possibly a valet.

    U.M.H.
