Summer fun.....at the end of September

Handmade bunting to greet visitors to the show
Image

Image

Thursday nights, kebab night
Image

and the fires ablaze
Image

now where can we get some wood...

Don't try this at home, Laurence encouraging the fire with a little WD40 :shock: :shock:
Image

after 2 hours of sawing, hammering, cursing and inserting various types of wedges, the log wasn't budging, but it had kept everyone amused
Image

Image

Friday morning dawns bright and sunny
Image

and its not long before its beer o'clock
Image

There was even some bikes out on show, along with Jamies smart new wheels, and our not so smart new ride to the left!!
Image

Thrills and spills
Image

and more smart wheels
Image

Image

as the afternoon draws on, the log becomes the focus of attention once again...this time JC and hes on a mission
Image

Image

the cheese and wine are soon being consumed
Image

Image

too much wine as becomes apparent later!!!
Image

Image

Pam enjoying the warmth from the fire
Image

Image

Saturday morning and the suns still shining. The fields getting busier as more people and bikes appear.

An unusual trio, chromed Chopper, Grifter and our RSW16
Image

Saturday evening and the Billing moon makes its appearance
Image

time for a selfie, with moon :)
Image

Albo with a challenge no man could refuse........all that free beer!!
Image

Rob was up for the challenge
Image

Alice had celebrated her 6th birthday earlier in the week, Marianne had brought along a cake for all to share in the celebrations :D :D :D
Image

There is a video from Saturday evening on the you tube board, view with caution :shock:

If you want to know what Rob was on .....it was this. Yes that's right 11.8% Rocket Fuel (available from Lidl in France)
Image

Easy like a Sunday morning
Image

Image

A big thanks to Mike and crew, for a fantastic weekend. Thanks for organising the weather.

Mike, keep up the karaoke. :wink:

Great pictures as always Elaine.

You're a really good photographer as I never see you actually taking any!

I'll get some practice in ready for next year on the karaoke (although several people did say i was rather good. I do however accept that the majority of them, if not all, were drunk! :P

Brilliant! (the time spent that weekend and your pics, as usual Elaine). I can also sympathise with Rob - my May injury, sustained after an encounter with far fewer litres of beer and a Spacehopper / tarpaulin / soapy water, is still in the last stages of healing! I did wonder for a second how you could sleep with a cracked rib - then I watched that video again :P

I can totally understand how Rob managed to break a rib. I'm suprised he stayed on his feet for as long as he did to be honest! Give him his due though, he was up there boogie'ing with the best of them!

Has anyone found a link for the vid yet?

Mike
