    Just a thought..
    after speaking to a fair few folk, telling all what a lot of fun we had at Pauls Bring and Buy, a good few peeps said it was too far from this area ( East Anglia ) to be practicable..

    Sooooooooooooooo

    This coming year I will not be running the Fun / Bird meet as I reckon it only has legs for a bi-annual event.

    However, if there is any interest, I would be willing to sort out a site and organise a bring anf buy ( eastern :winky: ) meet mid June to July ( slotting in in-between the other events and rallies )

    What say you good people ..
    Anyone interested ?

    Yes, John.
    Thetford Rugby Club ticks the boxes: space, loo dump, water and a bar.

    LOL !!!

    Ok.. so far so good.... We would need a hellova a lot of folk to be able to use the Rugby club again
    The site rental for a weekend is £300 from Friday thru to Monday, so we would need at least 20 vans to pledge for the event making it £15.00 per van for the weekend

    Soooo

    Looks like 4 would be up for it so far... any more for any more ? ( I know it is a long way off but the site would have to be booked by about mid October )

    :ROFLMAO: So I get it, you steel my Bring and buy meet, I then have to do your Blackbird meet? is that right? Is that what you mean by swap meet?

    It will never work, the only thing I know about Blackbirds is that they take all your money like white chicks do but in my experience they dance better. :Cool:

    Hi John
    it's quite a long way off--------but we will be up for it (if we are around)------you may not get enough definates to commit to it in time:Sad:
    The site at Mildenhall where we spend a bit of time has a rally field--------no bar, but a dump, water and SOME EHU points.

    The idea of a 'swap meet' in the East is a really good one IMHO

    Ok..................
    The weekend of July the 6th to the 9th.

    I shall go to the Rugby club and see if I can book it.

    Many thanks for the other suggestions for sites but chances are they would actually work out more expensive to the individual than the aimed for maximum £15.00 per van for the whole weekend.

    Whatever the rental cost we can divide up betwixt those attending,, so for instance if 30 vans attend ( and providing the site cost is £300 ) that would be £10 per van for the whole weekend.. not too bad !!

    If it does go ahead I shall proly organise some silly goings on as per this year :thumb:

    Sorry John, you'll have to count us out if you pick those dates.

    The Rutland Water meet starts on the 8th and we are marshalling that one.

    That's a shame as would like to have joined you.
