Hi. Quick update for those that are joining us at Slimbridge this weekend.
If you are booked on the Rally field you do not need to check-in at reception, please come straight through to the Rally field and check-in with me. Please do not arrive before 12pm on the Friday.

For those that haven’t been before below is a map of the site and the yellow line I’ve drawn on shows where you need to go to get to the rally field. The red circled building is reception and the blue circled building is the toilet/shower block.
If you are not booked on the rally field you must check-in at reception.
Look forward to seeing you all Friday!
Any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.

Hello to all that are booked in for Slimbridge this weekend, not long now!

I am going to attempt to make some larger name signs for each member to display on their windscreen, as previously mentioned earlier in this thread.
If you would like you first name(s) on this sign along with your forum name could you please edit the guest list above and add your first names to the Notes section? Humans only ;)
I'll then create an A4 laminated sign for each Cali owner. Certainly helps break the ice and also helps me remember who's who!
I can’t seem to edit. For me its Sam and Sebastian. Thanks

At the last Slimbridge meet, someone provided a gazebo that was erected in the middle of the event field which made a good meeting spot for a get together for a few beers. I distinctly remember Boris holding up a chandelier. It was a good evening and made it easy for people to mingle and get to know each other. Just an idea, but I haven't got a gazebo and I'm coming in an MGB anyway!!

That was us but unfortunately don’t have enough time to get them. Nothing wrong with meeting in the middle with some lamps we are booked into the pub for 7.30 Saturday night. Can we meet up there? Saturday morning is good for wandering round and saying hi and can I have a nose in your van. We would like to talk to anyone who has solar fitted to find out how easy it is to fit/what you can plug in etc.

I installed my kit from Roger earlier this year, happy to show and share what I learnt.

Sorry we can’t join you this time; hope you all have a great weekend.

If it’s not too cloudy you have a chance of spotting the space station …

Thank you @Mr T for your time and effort. You obviously have a good relationship with the " Weather Gods ", couldn't have wished for a better weekend.
Great to meet you and Mrs WG, many thanks for coming and I hope you enjoyed the weekend.
The weather was fab, so lucky!
