Great photos - hope your weather stays on the sunnyside of rain and everyone enjoys the weekend.
Looking at the amount of stuff - see why you want parking close to the boating area!

Hi guys
Looks good!
Hoping to attend tomorrow if Mrs Ned allows
Is the going soft or good to firm as she is not
a welly person.
Ive got webbed feet so it don't worry me
but if the rain today has made it soggy she
will probably not want to go.
What time does the car park open for us 'Laity'?
Hoping to make it

If the skies are open as the barbecue smoke will
probably be worse than Iceland!



Have a really good evening

Yours Aye
Ned

Captions during the week when everybody catches up back here on Mayhem!

Well it rained on and off all day but the biggest downpour was just after the sun had come out and it started to warm up about 6PM!
I had lots and lots of very interesting chats and learned loads of new tricks especially from Paul Freasny .
Doug got the day off to a 'rousing' start .... that ended up with the police paying us a little visit!
FLG tried to perform self surgery when setting up his display table. blood everywhere....
Ian put on a awesome flash steam jet propelled boat, that looked like a burst steam line, that shot down the lake at an
embarrassing 2 MPH... and duly won the Model Boat Mayhem award for worst performance of the day!
Ghost dropped his camera in the lake.
Hanna is all grown up and her new hair style is great.
Andy bought another boat.
Someone had a great little electric hydroplane, which after a few fast runs wrapped itself around SteamboatPhil's Straight line poles!
Some very impressive bruhless boat's including a Sea Queen on the plane and Stavro's  large lifeboat.
An impressive American warship put on an impressive sounds, recordings, gun fire effects & smoke screen.
Bill's vintage rebuilt river cruiser sailed past me several times playing cocktail music?!?!?
Alan let me sail his gigantic TID tug. He offered to let me sail the even giganticer HMS Kent... but chickened out.
Debbie's cherry and walnut cake was delightful.
Mrs mayhem's Chili con cane went down a right treat.
A part of Bradders caravan blew off during the night!

 A few more photos from today....

1. why isn't uncle Doug Kenny smiling?
2. what are those smoking trays...wofting smoke around or were they to ward off the rain?
3. who did win the most revolting shirt competition?

I'm so very jealous but it wasn't fair to drag up a sick 5 month old for a day of rain. Looks like an amazing time was had.
I hope I'll finally get to meet most of you at Wings & Wheels, if not then I promise to attend every Mayhem weekend from now until the end of time!

Hi Guys
Well it did rain and then some but it was still a good day out most of the traders attended but there were a couple of no shows
like model slipway. (Shame that)
Now a photo for a caption I think.


I will start

Suddenly after all the rain the normally shallow pond seemed a lot deeper. %% %%

Let me be the first to report.

What a great day. This was the biggest meeting so far, and I've been to five. Stands and displays nearly all around the lake and overspill trade stands on the path leading in.

Made a few purchases and talked all day. I expect a more detailed report will follow when the others drag their selves away.

Here is a movie of my Severn's first launch, which gives a flavour of the meeting. Oh yes, it did rain a bit but we didn't notice.

Made it to Wicksteed on saturday and despite the rain had a great time managed to spend a few quid and down a few cups of tea thanks Mrs Martin and family, also thanks to the people manning the bring and buy, it's a shame more boats were'nt on the water but never mind i'll start praying for good weather for next year.
Thanks a lot Martin, Phil and all the others who helped out.

Well, no rain today (Sunday) but plenty of wind. I think that many clubs will be purchasing new gazebos after today {-) They were flying all over the place. Not sure how much the traders managed to sell - they were all too busy hanging on to their tents and displays - except John P who was sitting back and enjoying himself. O0
Some nice warship models on the water, and a couple of yachts making the most of the wind. Stavros was kept busy rescuing boats (and a hovercraft). FLJ was telling everyone how he almost bled to death from his injury! Only saw two outrageous shirts though.

two good boats seen on the lake were the Queens Privateer's cutter, and the HMS kent, which is some 12feet in length, yes "1/bloomin massive" scale and yes it belies its size, getting moving remarkably quickly, though stopping it, thats a different question

Just got back and sorted out the wet stuff. (Aint it amazing where rain can get when you thought everything was covered up?) Today was much better weather wise but hang gliding from gazebos is to be dropped from next years programme.

A big big thank you to all those who did the organising and setting up. Three enormous cheers to Martin and I hope the meal for Mrs M doen't break the bank  :-))

As for the entertainment? I couldn't possibly comment  <*<
