Mollie at CamperJam 2014

This weekend we traveled down with the Harrogate & District VW Club to Weston Park in Shropshire for CamperJam 2014. It was a long drive with the Bob, Mollie and PeggySue, but we had fun on the way and once you arrive its all good. It pretty much rained all Friday night but the rest of the weekend was hot and sunny and perfect festival weather.

Here’s Bob, PeggySue and Mollie in the HDVW Club camp

We nervously entered Mollie in the Show and Shine on Sunday. Nervous, as CamperJam was the show that has massive competition and brings in buses from all over the UK. It’s also run and judged by David Eccles who has pretty much written every book on VW buses, so this was the challenge for Mollie.

I lined her up among some amazing looking buses, all with their own character and feature to make them all so different. It was a long wait for the judges to come round. I was so excited / amazed when Mollie was awarded a rosette putting her in the Top 5 splitscreens at the show.

Being a winner in the category meant that we were then all getting judged for the Best in Show. That’s 5 splits, 5 bays, 5 T25’s, 5 T4’s and 5 T5’s … we weren’t holding out any hope of getting any further. The Best in Show went to a great bay window and the runner up was a splitscreen that Dave had already picked as the winner at the beginning.

Here’s me collecting my trophy with David Eccles … fortunately I didn’t look too bad after the weekend camping!

and here it is .. the trophy to beat all trophies 🙂 … Well done Mollie, massive achievement with credit to Dubtricks for making her so stunning!
