Hi to everyone we met, all old and new friends. It was our first national bash and it was brilliant. I must apologise if anyone saw a deranged woman screaming her way to the marquee on Sat night, it was me, hearing "We are Glass" a Gary Numan cover, I was acting like a mad woman because no covers bands cover Gary Numan (Not even the other half in his band). Well done to Strange Town they were fab and for all of you who would like to know,,, no I didn't have a hangover on Sunday morning strangely enough must have been all the bopping.

Well done to BigDaddyCain and Dave for the superb BBQ on Sat nite.

BTW we did have our Forum name on our windscreen and it did help people we speak to on the forum actually finding out where we were. Just an A4 sheet laminated.

The more meets you go to the more friends you make and the longer it takes to leave the venue on the Sunday ...

We'll be at the New Forest in July, can't wait for that one. Best
thing was it had been raining in Norwich and overcast and cold all the time we were away and we got a suntan.

A big big thanks to Ian, Marianne and all the helpers it couldn't have been done without you!

A Big, Big THANK YOU once again to Ian, Marianne and their band of Merry helpers for a terrific Bash.

Member's Bash photo's and Ozric's video (Brills-love it) reflect what was a superb time. The rock band on Saturday night also was a great success.

Great to meet up with old freinds and make new. What a freindly bunch we are. :D

Here's to the rest of the years mini-bashes.

Cheers

Once again it was a fab bash, saw some great vans and it was nice to be able to put faces to names. Thanks to our neighbours Phil and Bill, the naughty teenages who helped me so much, I'm very grateful to you both during my immobile moments. And to all the rest [toooo many to name you all, sorry] that Roseanne and I met. Thanks to Ian and his team of helpers for organising another successful bash.
See you at Lymington.

How did you do that?

You would be a millionaire if you could actually control the weather!

In case any of you are feeling nostalgic - it's a week ago after all

This is the song they played for Ian to do a sound level check at the other end of the field.

(other songs downloadable there, too)
