Well no sooner had the VWCC meet finished today, it started to rain! This was after a few of the hottest days of the year so far. Thank you to all of you who managed to make it and in particular those of you who had travelled quite some distance. You all made it a success and Julie and I were delighted that you managed to explore this beautiful area, including visits to the magical island of Caldey. Some of you even braved the sea. From our shady ADMIN spot we watched you getting more tanned as the days progressed. Last night was memorable for many reasons, a particular war injury story which we are still laughing about and of course the Cali Dip Raffle winner and her seagull :) Here are a few photos of the event. I've pm'd some of you to seek your permission to post so I'll hold back on some until I get that. If you need any removed just pm me. Our very best wishes from Dinbych y Pysgod (The town of little fishes) and I hope you all had a safe journey home.

Thank you so much for an amazing time!
The organisation was first class, the welcome warm and so much thought put into the detail.
Beautiful weather and scenery and so much laughter.
I think that my seagull will have to become my van companion although I draw the line at my fellow campers suggestions of mounting him on the bonnet or roof!
Much appreciated. Looking forward to the next one :)

Thank you for hosting such a great meet on you home turf! It was great to catch up with the Cali Club, faces old and new. As usual a bit of van and accessory envy, I hope everyone had safe onward or homeward journeys.

Gareth, Julie, Chris (admin assistant) & Jeanette, thank you so much for the organisation of the Tenby meet we had a great time. It was good to to make new friends put faces to forum names and to discover the beautiful Tenby and Caldey Island a real jewel.
Glad to say Moose made it home with no issues :thumb it was a shame we could not make our trip to St Davids :( but we will be back :thumb.

Enormous thanks to Gareth for the effort he has put into organising such a fantastic meet. Even managed to organise Mediterranean weather for us to go with the cool beer.
Made new friends

And were very reluctant to leave

Can't recommend going to one of the club meets enough.

Thank you Gareth and Julie for a great couple of days inTenby which was our first attendance at such a gathering. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and the tips from other more experienced owners were much appreciated particularly how to open the awning! We look forward to seeing you all at future meets. Kim and Nigel

I can never forget that story which came out of nowhere, with a delivery worthy of a night at the Apollo! :) - glad he's managing!

Thank you to Gareth & Julie (and the Admin Assistants Chris & Jeanette) for our terrific "First" Meet in the beautiful Tenby. Had a really great time visiting your home town and surrounding areas, and meeting other Forum members. Looking forward to future meets.

Thanks so much for organising, Gareth. It was our first time away since returning from our meander around Europe, and with previously undiscovered towns like Tenby on our doorstep, we are wondering why we felt the need to go further afield than Britain...

Big thank you, and lots of admiration for that was achieved over the weekend to Gareth & Julie, plus admin of course :thumb.
As a latecomers to the meet, we were made very welcome by everybody, especially those with dogs of which there were many.
Sitting here now with a smile on my face thinking back to Saturday night dozing off with a rendition of “Hotel California” being sung around a campfire (well could have been Tom’s COB) in the background.

Diolch yn fawr

Adding our thanks to Gareth and his helpers for a lovely meet. We'd left Tenby alone until now but having Gareth's local insight made it a great visit.

We've moved on to West Hook campsite near Marloes (50 mins or so from Tenby). Quite a breeze blowing so we are sitting in fleeces....lovely! 20180702_180947.jpg
