Congratulations you have found Fables which usually means someone has recommended us but why........do you qualify to join us?
Read on if you are fun, fit and fabulous company seeking like minded people and wish to join the 200 club by first checking below if your character falls into one of the following catergories:
200 Club Minimum Requirements
Sexy and you know it, Teachers (what goes on tour stays on tour, Rock and Rollers, Movers and Shakers, Fifty Shades of Grey and counting (literally) little and often), Nurses (out of uniform but never off duty!), Men in uniform, Single by day / Twinned for the night, Work Outings with no consequences, Golfers and Hackers, Virgins and Milfs, Shop till you drop, Music lovers, Sophisticated or simply Riff Raff who just like a ticket to ride!
Ok but you need to move fast as 2017 is proving very popular with the first weekend trip already sold out ! Small must be beautiful as what Fables Fantasia achieved for 25 years worked and whilst People May Change (Brewster, Oxley, Spencer, Roberts, Cholerton, etc.).......Legends Live On. (Bloodworths, Stock, Whiteman, Clifton etc.) Thanks goes to one and all our customers past and present and not just those named.
Viagra and Alcohol drives our success
The volume of bookings to-date suggest last year's trips despite the usual hiccups have left lasting memories on our" clubbers", or an alternative theory could be GP'S are simply prescribing a trip with Fables as the perfect antidote. Good idea, not a cheap fix mind you but fortunately Ron (driver and self confessed ladies man) carries a stock of those blue pills and of course I (The courier and font of all knowledge) know where the bars are........and lest we forget those beautiful places Fables visit, distinctive hotels to sleep "it" off and stylish executive coaches to take you to your favourite places.
So for all those new customers who "we" fondly call virgins please be aware if travelling on their first outing, (you either come once or become friends for life with one of the self styled groups who make up the 200 club) please double check you fit the criteria, book your virgin ticket, have it verified by Simon and Ron and become a seasoned traveller of the 200 club. (no fee)
