    Overnight camping

    Hi Nige, we have some concrete floored cattle pens at the North end of the Showground for rolling the kombis under and plenty of grass nearby if you prefer. It might be warm enough for your friends to sleep out under a tarp slung off your van or on some airbeds on the concrete. There will be hot showers and toilets available. We'll be posting further details later about camping and the Christmas Party. You can send me a PM if you want more specific information any earlier.

    Cheers Doug

    We'll be there, Yogi has a new motor - thanks to Noel's skill and patience, and a bit of tool passing from me, not to mention muscle power, lifting the motor from the garage to the back of yogi!

    Going well, loving being back on the road getting kombi love, waves and peace signs xx

    It's a bit far for my kombi to go in one or two days just for 1 day and 1 night. I might not come up in the Kombi.

    I might change it to a tentative yes.

    I'm sure there are a few of us who would happily have you stay a day or two to make the trip worthwhile :D
