North, South or wherever, we're going to make the effort to get there next year, it usually coincides with our summer holiday but my leave dates have been sneakily adjusted for 2014

We could well be heading there straight of the Brittany ferry so the New Forest is quite convenient really!

We was there ... along with the Jimmers and Webbs to represent the South.

Camelot was a good laugh as it goes, not an easy thing to organise (Well done way Gaz)

I can still hear the campfire song from young Adam ... under his new name "Chuffin Hell" Ahh, such good memories

That was a good weekend, small, but good. The fire session with chuffers was quality

Is it time we looked to have a number of official forum weekends? Maybe do a South, Midlands, North and Scotland? There are enough people on the forum to make them all work financially. We managed 71 for the northern unofficial meet with 50 units camping. I know it's not on the scale of the South meet but its a start. Each one could have a theme, but i won't go into regional stereotypes lol

I'm new to the T5 world but I would certainly be up for a northern meet unofficial or otherwise

North sounds like a good idea I think some of the locals of the northeast would be up for it
But is that really North. Yorkshire, Scotland, Northwest and Tyne and Wear (Northeast) all have large areas and these are truly in the North

If you book it they will come, good luck with it

Tyne and Wear area meets 3rd Wednesday of the month
Next northeast area meet 18.5.16

Neither North or South, somewhere close to the middle

How about Warwick racecourse ?

The closest I have found (North wise) is the heritage-motor-centre J12 of M40, I have made an application, currently awaiting to hear back from them
Never heard Gaydon called North before - its still south of the Watford Gap.


Saying that its about 20 minutes from home so great for us :-)

Could do a good drive out to Stratford as well from there
