Sounds good to me!
Been to Jersey lots of times and Sark once - but only touched down on the runway in Guernsey so would make a nice change.

Guernsey does sound good, in my 39yrs I've only ever been to mainland England & Wales.
A Mini show doesn't really appeal to this household though, but you never know. Never say never, an' all that..... And Reg's Monster Scamp might just but I doubt it have had its Audi Turbo engine conversion done by then, so a long drive out will be nice.

The money side of it is not really an issue... For us, every event depends on dates, and whether we can get that much time off work in one go. Reg is a Master Locksmith and I'm a farm girl so we tend to be slogging when most others are chilling. Over the last 8yrs the longest that we've managed to get off work in one go is................. wait for it................ 3 days! And that was when we got married!


Do let us know more as it goes on though. Oh, and good on you for coming up with the idea,
Elaine&Reg.

Only 3 days - I hope you got paid holiday pay in lieu of taking your holiday cos your losing out otherwise!

When I was Pres I recc'd the Isle of Man for a possible Scamp holiday but to get the discount on the ferry names and vehicle reg is required and we all know how damm difficult it is to get members to commit to something months in advance and to collect the deposits needless to say it did not happen shame really it would have made a change from Wales.

One trip that has been successfull but is not really a Scamp holiday is the Italian Job Tours organised by our Mr Steve Edmonds which has to be planned for well in advance.

Sounds really good, we know how much the Scamps love water Smile

What are the dates, as i work shifts and have to fight with the rest of my team for holidays, the more notice the better.

I'm on my friends wireless connection so idont know if this is going to work, heh ho.

Guernsey Mini show

Post  Mk3rob on Fri May 28, 2010 5:36 pm

I e-mailed them today



Rob

We will not be deciding until around October if we are hosting a show or not, but if we do, it will most likely be the 2nd Sunday in June.

I will put you on my mailing list to keep you informed.

thank you for your interest
