Jean & myself have arranged a meet at Twin Lakes, France (www.twinlakesfrance.com) between 1st May and 22nd May 2015. Anyone who wants to join us is more than welcome. As it is a Meet and not a Rally you are invited to join us at any point during the three week period and enjoy the reduced rate for a pitch. Primarily we are there to celebrate Jean’s 70th birthday, which is on 5th May 2015. There will be a Pig Roast on that day.

During our stay there may well be other parties as several attending have birthdays and anniversaries. We will be putting on a Mr & Mrs Evening, with of course the famous Clock to be won.

On 14th May from 7pm onwards will be Hippie Evening. Music and Karaoke (supplied by a local DJ) from the 60's. Come dressed as a hippie and win Best Dressed Hippie. You will even get a Certificate with your photo on it to show your friends.

Pitch prices are 11E per night without EHU and 14E with EHU, which are obviously limited. This is a worthwhile saving on the normal pitch fee. It will be up to you to contact Twin Lakes to book your pitch prior to the period stated above. Make sure you quote ‘JaG’s Meet’ and quote you are MotorhomeFun when booking. Dates outside this period will be as per normal rates for the site, or a price you negotiate with Garry & Jan.
If you think you may go please let us know so we can give them some idea of anticipated numbers attending. Please complete the RSVP page in the Rallies list as well. It is located here:

A bit about Twin Lakes and getting there.
Twin Lakes Caravan Park is a picturesque site set in the region of Charente-Maritime, France, which is rich in culture, gastronomy and with the most wonderful sights.
It is 820km (509 miles) from Calais via Paris or 829km (515 miles) via Rouen. We did work out a route for caravan avoiding all tolls and it is 484 miles of which 255 miles are on Motorways. Time estimated was 12 hours. This was done on Michelin Route Planner. You will obviously have your own preferred route. We did the Paris route using Tolls last year and it proved expensive on Tolls and Paris was busy around the Ring Road.

English family owned they cater for those seeking a quiet and restful holiday in rural France away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. At Twin Lakes, customers are treated as individuals, knowing that everyone expects something special from their family holiday in France. Their aim is to offer choice and flexibility making your French holiday a memorable one.
Guests will exchange the traffic jams for the French countryside, the crowded pavements for a coastal path, the urban stress for the great outdoors, and a holiday in Charente-Maritime, France is the perfect antidote for de-stressing from modern day life. Sit back, relax, and enjoy. Rural France is so fabulous to explore, or just be here and relax any time of year. The one thing you are sure of is the warm and friendly welcome. The hardest thing you will have to do here is…..leaving when it is time to go home.

So I might have free time without taking any days off!) I'll call in . Only prob I won't know it before last minute probably!

Could be a good occasion to see Bob and Janie!;) and meet new funsters too!

No problem with short notice. If the opportunity arises grab it with both hands because you will not be disappointed. It is paradise peaceful and so laid back you need to make sure you do not fall into the lake, lol.
Hope to see you there.

Definitely interested in this get together, my birthday is also 5th and Trish is 13th and our wedding anniversary is 19th so plenty to celebrate :party2:

thanks Pat & Trish
WOW!!
That is some celebrating to do in the 3 weeks. Definitely the place to be to celebrate. They do an awesome Pig Roast for anyone who funds it somewhat, so I am told.
Hope you can make it. I have added to the 'interested list' and keep in touch.
