A busy rally with 23 vans booked in, nine of which were UK visitors joining in our fun in the sun.  Four  from East Mids, three from NW Mids and NW, one from Essex and one from Yorks. Unfortunately our Secretary and Chairman couldn’t attend as they are currently in the UK.

Our vice Chairman Bob Johnson opened the rally on Monday afternoon and welcomed all our visitors from the UK groups. The hosts set out a fantastic buffet and lots of cerveza and vino. We were again  lucky with the weather as the sun shone and we continued to party until 7pm at which point we went back to our vans and put the heating on.

Tuesday involved scooter rides and bike rides for some to explore the area, the rest of us did some retail therapy at the market which was round the campsite bar (very convenient). In the evening we all met up for a meal in the campsite restaurant. Good food and great company, as a bottle of wine each was included in the meal we only vaguely remember staggering back to our vans.

Wednesday was another get together where we had a street party at lunch time which again lasted until evening and included a quiz and entertainment. We are lucky to have two guitar players in the group (Bob Johnson & Clive Winter) who entertained us with music from our younger days so we could dance to some old favourites.

On Thursday the hosts had set up a treasure hunt around the campsite which was won by Maria and Richard Janson-Gilbert from the East Mids group. Following that the group got together for a valentine quiz which was won by a couple from the Spanish group, Val and Bob Johnson (alias Bobby Valentine). The campsite had entertainment in the evening for Valentines day and many members went along to that.

All too soon it was Friday, prize giving and time to say goodbye. Tony and Ann Child won the van quiz and Lynn and Clive winter won the Film quiz. Many hugs and double kisses until we meet again next month.
