I am happy to be able to invite you to the 2012 event.
The dates and venue have changed.
The dates are July 20-21 2012.
The venue is Malton Community Sports Centre (very close to the old Terrington venue)
www.maltonsport.org
We have changed dates and venue for two reasons;
1. I now live in Cairo and so the event needs to happen when I can be in the UK
2. Terrington Hall double-booked themselves and couldn't host us this year
The new venue is excellent - bigger and with better AV facilities.
Costs and Lecture schedule are being prepared and will be email to you imminentlyLooking forward to seeing you again
Best

Well decision made, we thought we could equipe the D1 with a bed and side awning, would be room for bed, recling front seats, but when we messured the engle fridge in the back, bed would be too high, very clauastrphobic.

So going to sell are caravan and buy a Long Wheelbase Delica, and turn into camper van.

The search is on. clinking teacups

edit just had a chat with a dealer, only approx 8-9 inches between Long and Short wheelbase modules,
so now just looking for a good one long or short

Hope that's a typo and not a premonition! affraid

Off to the Baltic, reckon going in a Lada Niva is a good call? They're great vehicles, would do the job a treat.

Update on a motor, after looking at a lot, and I mean a lottttttttt, realized can not stand up in one, have seen a few with pop up roof, can't find any for sale. So looked at Bongo's also some mazda's and simaler makes, also looked at a Carawagon, and a very very good camper on a Discovery 2, but the disco far too mutch for us, been told of some campers on Defender motors local, so will be haveing a look at them.

Tom still on for after C4H, see you then. clinking teacups
