Looks like this is going to be a small gathering, looking forward to meeting you all next weekend and will be able to say Happy birthday to Terry in person and having a drink to celebrate sunny

John has booked the Friday off so we should get there for around dinner time, not taking the awning this time as it is only two nights so just the basics February/March meet - Page 3 1969780652 . Easier to put up and pack away cheers

M62 is down to one lane in places and there is also a massive fast car show on this weekend with many car cruises going that way. We are going to set off early because there may be delays. Rolling Eyes

Considering just taking the sun canopy for this one as it's only two nights and my backs playing up. The sun canopy will still provide shelter should it decide to rain and is a lot easier to put up and take down.

that sounds like a really sensible idea Helen, as you say it gives you shelter if it rains but is much easier and quicker to put up

so sad i'm not going Sad will def be going to another meet but timing just bad for this one

want lots of pics and posts to let me know what i'm missing lol

hope you all have a fab weekend with amazing weather as i know the company will be lovely xxx

We're going to get organised today ......... roof box is going on the car, Leisure battery may want topping up, sun canopy is going with us so we need to dig that out. Sleeping bags are up stairs, we want to dig a cool box out of the garage rather than take the fridge. It's our first outing of the season so we have to get a few things organised but

We're going Dandying February/March meet - Page 3 2702329197

As we're taking the coolbox I did think it may be able to go in there, no need for the wine wellies, we're only there two nights so we don't need to take that many bottles. Laughing

I'm not taking my lappy this time as I never got around to getting a dongle, will be back Sunday.

Terry still managed to wake up singing this morning, John required quite a lot of coffee before he got going Rolling Eyes

They hit the wine and gin last night as it was Terry's Birthday, John ended up talking in his sleep all night long and snoring very loudly Shocked

First night there we sat and had a drink when it went dark but we were a little tired so we looked at the clock inside the Dandy and decided to have an early night, we just forgot that it still had the extra hour on from last season so ended up going to bed at 8.30 February/March meet - Page 3 3180756863 February/March meet - Page 3 3462454224 On the bright side we got a good nights sleep and didn't have to change the clock this morning.

Bailey had a lovely time as usual Very Happy

We forgot to take pictures of the beautiful lake but I'm hoping Beverley has taken some as they are staying on for another couple of nights, they have friends joining them today in a camper van and had friends staying on site in a caravan while we were there.

I will do a review on the site which I'm sure they will comment on.

I would like to thank Beverly and Barry, Terry and April for the lovely company February/March meet - Page 3 1710857839

Hi everyone.

Thanks to Helen and John for making us feel so at home. We had a lovely weekend and look forward to joining you all soon. We are looking to book at Woodhall Spa as we speak. Had an easy drive home and all I need to do now is repair the little scorch April did (That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!!!). Thanks also to Beverley and Barry who kept the flag flying on the first night when the rest of us went to bed (separately)at 8.30pm!!! February/March meet - Page 3 3180756863 It wasn't until I got into bed that I looked at my watch. Ooohhhh how we laughed!!!! Razz Razz Razz February/March meet - Page 3 2024858757 Wonderful weekend only spoiled by the money grabbing attitude of the campsite owner and the poor view which we had not asked for. See you all soon.

Terry and April.....
