So as per the title, and some people will know it from last year.

It's a show of old/vintage tractors, cars, cycles, motorcycles, motorhomes, steam engines, an auction where Simon @dabhand bought something he didn't need and had most likely forgotten about it till now(y)

We will kick the rally off on the Thursday 4th July and run for 4 nights to finish on the Monday, this is flexible as anybody who has been to the show ground before will know you can just book extra nights with Jan and I will put all the booking details on later.

The rally will centre around the Vintage show but if anybody wants to add a bit of impromptu music on an evening they are most welcome, there is a small room that we can have if we want but if the weather is nice of course we would rather be outside I am sure.

We should not be limited for space as the area is plenty big enough so if you are interested just put your names on this thread and we will firm up numbers and booking later, The tickets for the show will be £10 per adult and covers you for two days as we are inside the show ground this is non negotiable as Jan has to buy tickets for all campers. The price has gone up this year 1-24 Vans £12 without EHU or £17 with EHU, 25+ Vans £11 without or £15 with, I was surprised how many people wanted hook up last year;)

Lovely old town with half timbered buildings, plenty of pubs and restaurants and two YES two Wetherspoons:LOL:

That's a "Scandeere" in other words a V8 Scania in a John Deere tractor chassis,

Two years ago they had tractor pulling which was great to watch so hopefully they will be there again, I was told last year they would be(y)

The town itself is about 15 minutes walk for most people but taxi's are available for anybody struggling.

If anybody wants to try canoeing on the gently flowing River Severn you can hire them in town or I can take my inflatable along for a mess about at the site, bring your own Canoe/Kayak if you have one.

So that's it for now.

Hi Debs

Tracey and Rich(y) saved me asking you there names:LOL:, I thought "I know these people" but a bit slow to click.

You are on the list on the first post Debs.

Martin

Quite right Martin, I had to think hard, but yes, I had forgotten, and yes, I did buy something I didn’t need, and yes I haven’t used it, but I’m so glad I got out bid on the tractor, two enough for anyone, that’s why I try not to go to auctions anymore! It’s a great meet and a lovely part of the world and if you like tractors old cars and motorbikes, mixed with beer curry and ambling around it’s a belter. Really sorry I can’t go as I’m at Stratford, have fun

Could you be persuaded @jongood I have it from Jan that the Tractor pulling is 99% going ahead and I was going to see if we can get in the pit area and talk too a few of the guys, a bit like a back stage pass.
