    Just a note to say how much I enjoyed the Newark 2010 Meet. Thankyou to all the people who helped me with the two stoves and the two lanterns which I brought along for help with. It was good to get the Primus 210 working. Changing pressure cap seals etc and a combined effort with the pump NRV that I'm sure they'll all remember!. There is still a small yellow flame from the base of the jet indicating maybe that the thread may be damaged there? I think I'll try changing the jet...... The SVEA 123 is still intermittent, however after fixing most other components, I'll have a go at the wick and adjust how far I've inserted it up the tube. Both Tilleys seem to be GO, and the time and effort the experts put into them was staggering! However I now know to check whether it's White Spirit I'm trying to run them on!
    Rosemary and myself would like to thankyou all for making us welcome. If any of you are visiting the Derby area, we'd be pleased to make you welcome.

    Yes, Newark 2010 has come and gone, to quickly as usual, but up for Newark 2011 I guess.

    A lot will change this year for me, all for the beter I'm sure. Interestingly, Newark sounded off an era for me.

    But I hope to see you all again next year, next year.

    Hi my name is Ben and this was the first time my family and I visited Newark and met up with the CCS crew. We came down with Ian and Mrs M who we are like family to and had a great time. I am very new to the stove and lantern experience but so far like what I have seen. The displays were amazing and the people were just as nice. I liked it so much that I returned home with a Bialaddin lantern which I am now in the process of restoring and fettling.

    Looked like lots of fun. I love those spotlights. Are they from the UK? I don't believe we have anything like them over here that is pressurized liquid powered. Mike...

    Hi Mike,

    Yes - there are floodlights (FL6) and spotlights (i.e. focusable) both made by Tilley. They also made a variety of hand carried lamps rather than just the more common lanterns.

    Others here will probably be able to quote other model numbers off the top of their head - I've included FL6 as I happen to hae one. Would love one of the spotlights but I've never seen one in the wild.

    Cheers, Graham.

    Greetings, Friends,

    Thank you, one and all, for sharing Newark with us this year, as always!! I love seeing what you share at this stellar event, and ONE DAY would love for Sweet Bride and me to be joining you all!! As we would have to travel very light, I imagine we'd be sharing the tarp with Brother Ian!! ;) ;) :shock: :lol: :lol: But, that would be fine, too, as long as we did get to join you Lot at a future Newark!!

    I love putting faces to names, and seeing long-time friends there, as well as the new folks. Nick, your hair is looking "right up town", Mate! Keep your distance from Master Shouksmith, when he's priming anything, or else you'll soon be sans hair once again!! :shock: :shock: ;) ;) :lol: :lol:

    I've never seen a barbeque rig like Presscall's (John's), and it was intriguing, to say the least! How did it work for you, John? Steaks, cooked on such a rig, at a fine event like Newark, seems to be the dogs db's, I'm thinking!! :thumbup: 8) :D

    The displays, as they always are, were outstanding in the extreme, Mates!! GREAT stuff, and many thanks for sharing it with those of us who could not have been there with you!! By the way, Brother Henry was actually here in CA, enjoying the Wet T-Shirt Marathon in Los Angeles that weekend!! :-$ :-$ ;) :lol: :lol:

    SB and I have already discussed what sort of camp we could pack along for such an event in the future. We're thinking a small tent, small pads and sleeping bags, and a small tarp out front. As for stoves, we'd probably just pack a Meths stove, and call it good, as shipping stoves in luggage is not an easy thing to do these days, and we'd hate to lose one to an over-zealous TSA Agent!! :shock: :shock: Someday, we'll be there, though, no matter how it turns out logistically!! Again, well done, one and all, and thanks, again, for sharing it all with us!! Indeed, "Roll on Newark 2011"!!!! Take care, and God Bless!

    Every Good Wish,
    Doc and Sweet Bride
