    We've had a few newbies this year so i'll start the thread with a bit of an explaination.
    What is TECHENDERS?
    TECHENDERS is a meeting of (mostly) bay owners to camp and fix/learn about their van in a central location, it's a chance to ask all those questions you try to explain on here or compare your engine and oily bits to someone elses with assistance or back up from people who've probably done the same job you're attempting.
    Where is it held?
    It's at victoria farm near Lutterworth http://www.victoria-farm.org/
    When is it?
    It's held over the weekend of Fri 26 Sat 27 Sun 28 of september. Those turning up on the friday please note we can't go in the bottom field until after 4pm but can mill around up top from anytime.
    Who can come?
    Anyone, including pets or kids - come to mess with vans or just come for a weekend break.
    What can i expect?
    It's whatever you make of it, in the past we've removed and replaced engines or just helped people change a bulb, all we ask is you explain fully what you expect to do and do it early, no use saying "can i take my engine out" on saturday night..... also be aware we won't do your work for you, we expect you to get dirty - or be willing and we can point you in the right direction.
    What about entertainment and food?
    This isn't a vw show, it's just people meeting at a campsite owned by a vw owner who lets us use his facilites, there are no stalls or tat it's just camping, there is usually a run to the local chinese for a feed and Eddy the campsite owner usually does a full english at a £5 a head (i have to confirm this nearer the date) the local shops are 10 minutes away with a Morrisons etc. The site has a bar and a heated barn which we have the use of for a small fee if we use it due to bad weather etc.
    What will it cost?
    Usually £8 a night to camp with no hook up or £10 with, this will be confirmed nearer the time incase it's gone up - we do not take any money, this charge is from the site. Electric is limited in the lower field although there is plenty in the top field if needed - you can always walk or drive down during the day.

    If i've missed anything ask away and if i'm not online @zed @Baysearcher @tuesday_wildchild will also answer most questions - i'm just the fool who talks to the site owner.....

    Below is a list of who's coming and what they want to do, try to copy and paste the list now and again just for a rough idea on numbers for me to tell Eddy.

    Cheers Rick.

  4. Hello

    I've not been for a couple of years but would like to come back now I've got a new van after amicable split up from old van and driver.

    Would like to learn anything at all so I don't look like a total spud in the likelihood of a break down.

    I'm happy to bring cake and cook when I'm not getting covered in oil!

    Hopefully see you all soon.

    Cat & Paul & our matt black prototype.

    dubster; Maybe shocks (sound like a nice group to get into), maybe service, maybe trying to get my roof on straight, maybe a bit of this and bit of that, maybe nothing at all but making coffee and drinking cider!
