Sorry Doug,

A special award was given to Phil Abbott ( SteamboatPhil ) for services to
'Mayhem at Wicksteed Weekends' way above the call of duty

Phil loaned us a very expensive Radio mic,
Provided prizes for various fun competitions throughout the weekend,
Provided much of the Tea, coffee, Sugar, etc.
Did the straight running demonstrations,
Set up his own display of steam boats,
and is one of the most enthusiastic model boaters I've ever met.
.... and a thoroughly nice bloke to boot!

 I'll get the photos sorted and we'll tell you about the straight running competition! 
Phil will never live it down! {-) {-) {-) {-)

PS: Bradders helped a bit and got a large bottle of his favorite tipple for his trouble..... he should resurface about Thursday!  ::)

Thanks Shipmate60 and Martin.

A very deserved recipient indeed.  O0 

I'm still mad at SWMBO who double booked me, and the lunch was mediocre.  :'(

cheers

Doug

PS I'm surprised Bradders will be out until Thursday with a bottle of J20 Apple and Mango  :angel:

A big thank you to Martin and Bradders who thought I was deserving of the award, and of course to Guy who made a fantastic job of it. I does hold pride of place on the shelf, and I feel very proud (and indeed humble ) to have received it, for doing what I, and all us Mayhemers really enjoy doing, boating and talking boats (humm maybe the problem is shutting me up !!!!!)

OK folks - here it is - Wicksteed 2008 - the video

Unfortunately due to some  circumstances at home I haven't been able to do more than a very little editing (adding a title, eliminating the parts where I forgot to switch off the camera and got lots of sky and editing out some audio swearing in the background) so enjoy what there is.

Is it just me and my computer?

Don's video was less than 20% buffered after 1 minute and the Youtube bit will not load at all.
