    I know there's a sticky but Zed commented we possibly need a seperate thread to judge numbers and tell you without you reading through all the piffle what this involves.
    Techenders is basically camping (if you like - you can day visit) with a few guys who know stuff and who will help you/give instruction on jobs you need to do on your van.
    It's twice a year and it's here http://www.victoria-farm.org/index.htm The owner Eddie is a vw nut and has a few vans himself, he also has a decent workshop with ramps that he lets you use.
    Camping is cheap (about £7 a night i think) and his mrs does a mean breakfast, there is a chinese and pub close by and also a few vw parts suppliers locally if you get stuck.
    The 2nd one this year is the weekend of the 14th (Friday) through to Sunday 16th of September.
    If you'd like to come there's no set rule of when you arrive it's pretty laid back but it would help if we have a rough idea of numbers - i'll be there from friday mid afternoon.
    If you're a novice who can't even change the oil come along, if you're clued up on any part and fancy helping out come along, we can never tell what "experts" turn up as nobody charges for advice so there's no real guarantee they'll turn up, Zed never misses one and there's usually plenty of guys who know enough to at least point you right - plus half the time it's about having the confidence to do something with someone else there to tell you it won't explode - right?.
    Tuesday Wildchild has (he assured me) booked it so we are all good to go and if anyone's got any questions ask away and if you're coming let us know so we have a rough idea, to be honest if it's just me and zed and tuesday it will be on but we'd like to see you there too, even if you don't want to fix anything but want a chill out weekend think about it - we are allowed fire!

    AMMENDMENT
    Rick can you amend the costings in your lead post please.

    Its £7 a night and £3 for hook up which there are only 2 or 3 so if anyone has a splitter please bring.

    We are in the bottom field. A marquee is possible but that's another £100 but the barn is only £30 which can take 2 maybe 3 van if the great British summer falls from the sky.
     
  2. I'm in! Haven't checked with the rest of the family so could be me on my tod, or could be the whole entourage :eek: but either way I'll be there with me little bag of spanners ;)

    I definitely come under the novice category. I didn't even fit the lino or curtain rail myself ::) ;D
     
  3. I'm coming along. I have a few jobs to do on Myrtle as always.
