& finally, the caption competition. :arrowu:

What is Disco introducing into Doggy's tank?

A brilliant day out, thanks to everyone who took part, to omega plod & co. for getting the BBQ sorted & doing the cooking and especially to Disco, for making it happen.

Lets arrange the next one soon 8)

Also, did anyone else think DiscoPol looked like Greg Davies the comedian/actor?

A great day out, sorry i havent had chance to get the photos up yet, family holiday seems to be taking up all my time, soon as i get back to sunny poland then i will get the pics up.

A big thank you to Doggy for his BBQ and to everybody else who contributed to the food stock, and big thank you to everybody else for turning up, it was a fine day and must be repeated again soon-ish.

I was impressed by the heritage centre itself, it was a good location and they were very accommodating to us, allowing 15 or so hooligans to use the campsite for an impromptu bbq and a bit of grass tracking too :cheesy:

as everybody else has said, it was really good to put faces to names and then real names to names and then cars to names and faces, well you get the idea, it was a bloody good time and i was shocked at just how fast the day went 5pm and gates shutting time came around very quickly indeed :shock:

Looks like i just missed this. Only bought my 206 a couple of days ago, a bit of a shame as i only live up the road from the venue :(
Looks like a good day.
Any plans for another next year?
