...Hi Guys...

I was planning a wee trip down to the event from Bonnie Scotland for the weekend but due to unforeseen circumstances I can no longer make the trip...

I hope you have plenty of fun & post lots of pictures...

I even had a  "Big Big Big"  Surprise !!! for you all, (Possibly, The Star Of The Show")

 Alas it will have to wait until another Show...

I might just have to "Let the Cat out of the Bag" at Glasgow Richmond M.B.C. Open Day on Sunday...( Look out for Pictures)...If i manage to attend...All Will Be Revealed...

I enjoyed my first ever visit to the meeting and saw some terrific models - particularly the lifeboats and Ray111's 'personal' display - I wish I could make models like that.   :-\ ;) O0

A special award was given to Phil Abbott ( SteamboatPhil ) for services to
'Mayhem at Wicksteed Weekends' way above the call of duty.... and a thoroughly nice bloke to boot!

( Speedy recovery to Mrs Steamboat too. )

Tomorrow we'll tell you about the straight running competition! 
Phil will never live it down! {-) {-) {-) {-)

After a long windy day but with lots of sunshine and bags good humour, Phil proposed a toast to all the
absent Mayhemers.  More tomorrow ZZZzzzzzz.........  :)

Glad you folk had a great day. It looks good in the pics. Hope today (Sunday) is good for you.

I was thinking of you all and hoping you had better weather than I was having here in France. I was going to go sailing on my tod to think about you but it rained like there was to be no more tomorrow!

In the next lot of pics. any chance of putting some names to faces?
