This is the time of the year when I go green with envy at all you lucky people in Britain who are going to the Mayhem rally. It's just a bit too far for me to go for the weekend   :D

I hope you all enjoy yourselves and that the weather is kind to you  O0.

I look forward to seeing the photos at a later date. Have fun, and try not to sink too many boats.

Peter.

Number 6 you can put up your gazebo on Friday and leave the table and chairs in it, and as I said before park it near one of our caravans or my tent.

Another hour and a half before I finish work bummer

Brian
Thanks for that,hopefully will get down on Friday with enough time to set up. Dave aka Number6 :-)) :-))

Modelboatbits,
You've never seen scouts eat obviously, you'd think they weren't fed at home when they hit the trough on camp.
Looking forward to the pics to come upset i can't be there.  <:( <:( <:( <:(

im really looking forward to coming up tomorrow. it'll be my first Model boat mayhem, unfortunatly, my only finished model which i was planing on bringing is refusing to work what so ever  >>:-(, so ill probably only be bringing up my nitro boat to see if andy can get it running for me. Unless Tug--Kenny has room in his car for my warship then i might consider taking that  %)

Hi All
Well we made it here from down South! Somebody lied to me - they said the sun never shines North of the M25 - Rust prevails.
We got here at around 1.30pm and the sun was out and it was blooming HOT!!!!!
We have now set up the shop at Hunter Systems and is ready to sell you lots of goodies tomorrow and Sunday. I have had my beer followed by my cocoa. Going to walk the dog and watch a bit of telly.
Got loads of Planet radios on board plus the new OCTO 8 way switcher and the really load Diesel generator.
So come to the Wicksteed show - you WILL enjoy it.
See you there.
Regards
Graham

All right guys the full JOCKSTER POSSE couldn't make it due to commitments but two of our lads did.

Big Bri and Gingyer.

Go easy on them as being so far away from their 'ome turf they will probably go into a funny cold turkey state!!!!!!

Missing things like haggis, irn bru,tattie scones, bag pipes,etc etc.

They are also undercover members of the RCB (Richmond Combat Brigade) please beware..............YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!
