What a great weekend, another brilliant birthday meet with DandyCampers. Unfortunately we couldn't be there on the Saturday night as we had prior engagements again but it was great to see so many people, unfortunately not all in Dandys but circumstances cant be helped.

As the excitement grew last week I had to do something special for the weekend, last year I arranged a talk on Carbon Monoxide this year I thought I would do something a little creative so set about making a flag..

If I had known I could be this creative I would have taken art at school.

The flag is an adapted shower curtain and I used Dylon fabric paints and markers to draw and paint the image.

We had 7 units at Woodhall this year and a good mix of ideas and advice, I like how all members of the forum are happy to spend time discussing what modifications have been made on their Dandy and share information.

This was our first time out properly with our new awning thanks to Caz and the difference it makes is amazing, we had a lot of condensation on the roof and a lot of dripping the next morning so will be looking to find a fix for this.

I didnt get many pictures but I saw at least Jayne and Mike out with their cameras so there will be plenty to come.

He looked great as a butler but he walked off when I asked him to serve the wine! Laughing

Your flag is great Shaun Woodhall Spa - Birthday meet - Page 5 1710857839 might have a go at one myself

Condensation in the awning ...... sew two sheets together end to end and thread over the roof bars, it catches the drips and the sheets dry over the day Woodhall Spa - Birthday meet - Page 5 3498837457

Arrived home at 16.10, came back the pretty way over Woodhead keeping motorways to a minimum.
Things seem OK, I even got help unloading the bus. A chocolate lollipop with jelly hearts on it and a big bag of mini eggs that I bought in Skeggy yesterday seemed to do the trick Woodhall Spa - Birthday meet - Page 5 1710857839

Phoenix landed safely at home at just before 5 o'clock this afternoon. Smile
She is all unpacked and tidied up ready for her next outing. Which hopefully won't be too long.
It was really great to meet up with everyone and to finally put faces to names. We enjoyed everyone's company and are looking forward to meeting up with you all again sometime soon.

Ps Shaun the flag looked great. Woodhall Spa - Birthday meet - Page 5 1710857839 Woodhall Spa - Birthday meet - Page 5 1710857839

Home and in bed by 21.30 after a round trip through Birmingham to collect some spares.
Missed the people who were there last year but not this.
Thanks to everyone but especially Terry and April who after I had hunted Mr and Mrs P away refused to take no for an answer and helped me pack up. It would have easily been another hour and a half of packing if I'd been on my own.

More to report but can't as I'm dog tired.

Hope all are safe home.

Not entirely sure about swimming on site although I could guarantee the boys would have been playing in it! Think we'll go back and explore the area a bit more so the pool will be a definite next time if it's nice and warm!
