I'm organising some Elgrand to meet up for a weekend on Shell Island, Llanbedr, North Wales, on April poss 27th, it's being organised by Inspiring campers, and I am organising the Elgrand peeps who want to go in conjunction with the inspiring campers.
It's £8 per night which includes the use of shell island s ammenities including toilets, showers, washing facilities.
Inspiring campers will be providing marquees, music, and fire pits to keep us warm, but I'm sure will ask for peeps to bring some food/charcoal/wood along as they provided bbqs. But it's pretty much all muck in, and they are a really fri3ndly bunch and would be nice to have the two groups together on she'll which has some amazing vie2s.

That's a bit of a coincidence! I've been to Shell Island most years from 1979 to present day, first as a kid with the family with dad taking his boat(s) and since with my family / sometimes with my son and taking my boat. My dad was head of the boating club there when he died in 2008 and I believe his last boat (yacht) is still moored there. Lots of memories of Shell Island past and recent years lol. We were thinking of gong to Shell Island this year at some point, we might make that point April now (even though I've known it snow at Shell in July lol). I don't own an Elgrand but lots of owners know me as I converted more than 30 Elgrands to LPG last year and have broken off from converting an E50 to LPG to write this. Anyone I know planning on going?

Hope you don't mind me saying Rapper but might be a good idea to put your full screen name Rapperfrapper in the message you put on the meets page, the girlfriend found your message on the meets page and told me about it by txt but I couldn't find you or anything about the meet when I searched for Rapper...

Unfortunately nissshow has been cancelled again. A larger event has been scheduled for the same date so the couple who organise it have decided to cancel. I don’t think they can make it financially viable since Nissan cancelled their backing either.
