Hi all, This is always a good weekend. It's a lovely site and we've found some great roads over the mountains. All we need now is for people to join us, the more the merrier. So let us know and we look forward to seeing you there.

Hi Kay
Hope you are well
Stephen and I will be attending this weekend, and after a weekend under canvas in Luxembourg we will be bringing the motorhome and trailer with us.
Do we need to book the campsite direct ? or will you be allocating spaces for us ?
Please let us know and we look forward to another super event
Cheers Stephen & Kate

As 4xmoke has just put some pics on the gallery from 1995, we may have to wait a little longer to get some on of this years Welsh weekend!
Apparently even the digital version of the November edition of Mini Magazine has some!! But not the Moke Club Gallery!!
