    Jill & I will be there plus Suggy & Rosie. We've been at Bourton Rovers CL since Monday and will be traveling to Upton in a few hours.

    We have never met any other Funsters before so how do we recognise you all. Do you fly flags or have window stickers? We will arrive early Friday afternoon and can easily be recognised as by the total mayhem that seems to ensue as we set up camp and try and get everything working :doh:

    We will be in the MCC section so they may not like Fun flags so I'll fly one with a black sheep on a white background.

    When you involuntarily blurt out "What the hell is that ?", you've found your FUNster.

    Don't bother picking him up, he'll just fall over again.

    Sorry we missed the people we were unable to locate but we did happen upon UKBill and his entourage. All we can say is that if he is typical of the Funsters then we can't wait until we get to an official get together. I have put a Funsters flag on our shopping list and will have it flying next time

    All the Best From

    I would urge you to camp on the official campsite - that way you are contributing to the running of this wonderful free festival :)

    No need to prebook, there is plenty of room for everyone.

    Not sure if you have to pre-book, you must be a member and there is a 50 unit limit.
    The site they are using is about a miles walk from the town and the event areas.

    Totally agree, the official campsite is the sole source of income for the organisers and should be supported, it also has a great atmosphere......
