Well we arrived home last night at about 10pmish and thought I would just say thanks and add a little review. Thanks to Rory for giving us the low down on the event and what was needed to survive it. On our arrival we sadly had to camp away from the funsters as we needed some grass to errect a tent that the kids had said they wanted to sleep in. We were a bit harrassed on the friday after a torture journey through Notts and a child whom had a little to much too say for himself. So on the friday I could only think what a waste our money was. On Saturday though our mood changed. The kids had become happy and Nikki and I elected to attempt to improve our Jive, so accompanied by a few other funsters off we went to do some jive dancing. Wow, great instruction, great atmosphere and a great laugh. Nikki got dressed in her rockerbilly gear that she had not worn since her teens and off we went. We danced, we listened to music we were in awe of the fantastic cars, bikes and trucks that people must of spent hours in preparing for the show, they all deserve a medal. Looking at some of the fifties cars really made Nikki and I have a great day. Sadly the weather changed a little late afternoon and the wet stuff attempted to spoil the day a bit. Nikki and I however, managed to just enjoy the music whilst getting wet through. On Sunday we awoke to glorious sunshine, if not a little windy.. We then went off to finalise our Jive dancing accompanied by Rory and Jan and Mark and Linda. Once again great tuition and if you live in Ilkley go and see the Ilkely Jivers to get some lessons of this smart lady whom had me laughing all the way through. After Jive we headed off for more music and more fun and another look around some of the cars. we were tempted by the odd buick for sale but one hobby is enough for us at the moment. We were lucky then to go off and watch the Jets before going off to see the band I was looking forward to seeing most!! MATCHBOX. Excelent stuff, Road runner John and Jock came out to sit with the other fusters that were out rory and Jan and Mark and Linda. and together we sang through it and had a great afternoon sat in the sun. Sadly I was unable to stay and watch Alvin Stardust as I had to get home to get the kids to bed. After my initial reservations, mainly due to the cost, I can honestly say Nikki and I and the Kids and the Dog had an absoloute ball. So much so I am now being dragged about to otehr Jive lessons and am looking for a PT Cruiser for Nikki,. So thanks all that went, and a special thanks to Patrick for the air bed (the kids loved it) and to Rory and Jan for your hospitality, and Of course the usual crew. See you in a couple of weeks for some fishing.
