    Many thanks to Jaws for organising a fantastic - and different - weekend. As usual met several old and several new friends.

    Great to meet ScotJimLand for the first time when he visited for the day.

    Oi, who are you calling old?

    He he, are you wearing PINK?

    Thanks Jaws, I do wish to complain about you allowing a 10 year old nutter to drink and drive at the meet,,,,

    Hugs and all that.

    ShiftZZ, wear PINK and be proud,,,,

    Jaws,
    Thanks for a cracking weekend.
    I know from experience that the apparent off the cuff nature of these things is anything but. It takes a lot of planning and hard work.
    Like Graham, met some existing friends and some new ones.
    (One of the new ones may turn out to be a GIT! Remains to be seen.)
    If you plan one of these daft weekends for next year, book us in.
    Thanks again.
    Cheers

    I was only drinking, not driving!!

    I wanted to buy something pink but apparently some bloke in Lincolnshire has put in a bulk order to the importers of all pink goods.

    Thanks from me too. I had a great weekend from what was an off the cuff extension to a pre-planned trip. For a newbie like me it was great to put faces to forum names, even if this did involve rather rude peering in to ‘vans to see what the inhabitants looked like after reading the name label in the windscreen.

    Thanks for all the hard work that goes in to these events and that is unseen by the participants.

    Happy Travels,
    Richard W.

    Hi John and Mo, another cracking 'Jaws production' week end, including Elvis and Neil Diamond.

    Everyone had a great time and a whopping amount raised for charity.:thumb:

    Looking forward to the next one

    Richard and Gay

    ps One of the best bits was to get a knock on the door "Hello, it's me, Elvis, have you got any face cream?" ::bigsmile:

    For those of you who witnessed my problems with the bike, I had the battery checked this morning and it is completely shot. I can't complain really as it was just over 3 years old, so now I am £54 lighter but with a new battery.
