    RTTS - Run to the sun.
    The organisers put it on each year (I think busstop sponsorship started the first one) at a cost due to the location hire, ect.....
    Then if there is any money left over at the end of the show it gets put into a kitty to be used for the following year to pay for some of it.

    That is what I understand anyway from chatting to a couple of the volenteers at camping (I was a little tipsy at the time but remember fairly well).

    Guess that any leftover is going to Busstop festivie night as there was no RTTS last year.

    My girls are very keen for a theme park day.

    I will have to squeeze it in somewhere in the agenda - probably Sunday if it works with everything else.

    Dont know which park as there are a few.

    Wet & Wild dress theme - that could be almost anything - might be a mermaid amongs my girls.

    Liss, you have to share a site with me and I dont have a wife and daughter to keep me in check this time. Ha, ha.
    not that I misbehave, just will snore you and Paul out.

    Syncro. Have a look at the yearly passes. They cover wetnwild, movie world and seaworld. You could easy devote 2 hrs each day and doo all three.

    Nah I'm just kidding :) I'm glad you can make it despite a new bubba possibly arriving, though disappointed your family won't be with you, but I guess there is always next year :cool: - Liss

    Yep I know how she feels on that one. Hopefully she can lie in the pool and take the weight of the baby off for a while. - Liss

    Is this tappet cover races? or any VW model?
    Does it have to be self propelled? Ie - Pull back and release? Track length?
    Or is it motorised??

    If it is motorrised can I put a vw logo on my toy helicopter? It still won't win but will create a different dynamic.
