Seems to be a lot of members here from the East, but not the Far East, like Kings Lynn!
Does anyone know if the Kings Lynn club has fizzled?  I can't find it anywhere.
Or maybe the one that used to meet at Mepal water park?

Mayhem is all about FUN, this will be the third one I have had to miss knee operation recovery this year means long drives and kneeling are not allowed. Which I am really p@@@@d about.
When I get there I turn up with a car load of boats, gazeebo and stuff and enjoy the whole weekend, even if we get a bit of the Wicksteed mist (rain), or the gentle breeze called Force 8. It is like I have never been away, everyone is really friendly.

Do not be put off by the BBQ talk, only the crazy ones amongst us talk about what we can remember. Believe me it can be hard to remember, the evening BBQ.
If BBQ food is not for you stay awhile and chat, the food & alcohol are not mandatory.

The boating comes first it is very informal and fun, everyone helps if boaters have a problem, fires run away boats the only rules are, there are no rules, other than the obvious safety ones. Put the boat in the water and sail.

In 2007 the first year Martin had this crazy idea, which is the Mayhem weekend. I turned up with one boat, a Springer and some camping equipment. I only knew the people online, and had never met the people who were there, we had horizontal Wicksteed mist all weekend and everything was soaked, but it was great. I meet the same people maybe once or twice a year outside of Mayhem, and we chat and joke like best friends, it does not stop after the weekend. Ten years on and I wish I was coming no matter what the weather, I already had the Friday booked off at work

The parking is great, access to the lake is really easy nice and flat, there are trollies to use, and if required there is always someone there to help launch the boats large or small.

Did I mention it is all about having fun!

Have a good time everyone

That was 8 years ago!  Yes it's a lovely lake. It's one of the few places in Norfolk with hills and is like a mini Windermere, if they still use it.
Last time I was there (for a beer!) I was told that the chap I spoke to had never seen a model and he was a regular dinghy sailor.
But I'll see if Mr. Crome is still about. 
Actually, I like the idea of using the Walks if that hasn't been wrecked again.

I couldn't do what that old chap is doing.  Or, if I did, I wouldn't be able to get up again!  Well done that man.  That'll be a heavy boat!

Do Smiths still do those sort?
And Top Gear is a rubbish mag.  Now if it were Supercar Classics, with those beautiful hand drawn sketches in, that would be different.
Or better still, Classic Boating magazine, but that's direct subsription.
