    @nmp, I usually used the Nerf on Trevor but decided against it this year, solid rounds.

    As you asked it's a Marttiini knife, find it's very handy in the kitchen, a fully set up photo shoot as you obviously guessed.

    Schoolboy eror with the 00, as I'd assembled it for display forgetting to unscrew the vent, as it was quite warm it dcided to empty the fount on it's own accord. :( It's one of my main users so always fuelled ready. Doesn't look pretty and the jets a bit worn but it'll boil water just fine.

    @Spiritburner. Instead of stove wanging, set up a Nerf firing range in the Arms for target shooting, a lot less energetic if you're concerned about the health of attending members. :)

    Aye - maybe. Would like something stove related. Looking forward to next year - should be more 'mobile'

    @Spiritburner, how about something like a fun fair shoot with stoves as targets to knock over? Not actual stoves obviously. :) Need to find candy floss though......other prize suggestions accepted.

    If we find some where with a solid backstop I can provide some air rifles and pistols.

    @Big Si, was thinking Nerf range, a bit more random. :D

    Polystyrene stove targets, just hope there isn't a stiff breeze to take the targets over is the draw back.

    You could do the air pistol stuff under the road.

    Hi folks

    it was great to see so many people there again this year and nice to see new faces too.

    I must reiterate what others have said and thank Ross for arranging the event and negotiating a cheap price once again.

    Just a few photographs now i have managed to download them from my camera.

    See you all again next year.

    Regards Jeremy DSCF5304.JPG DSCF5306.JPG DSCF5307.JPG DSCF5308.JPG DSCF5309.JPG DSCF5310.JPG DSCF5312.JPG DSCF5313.JPG DSCF5314.JPG DSCF5315.JPG DSCF5316.JPG DSCF5317.JPG DSCF5318.JPG DSCF5319.JPG DSCF5320.JPG DSCF5321.JPG DSCF5322.JPG DSCF5323.JPG DSCF5324.JPG DSCF5325.JPG DSCF5326.JPG DSCF5327.JPG DSCF5328.JPG DSCF5329.JPG DSCF5330.JPG DSCF5331.JPG DSCF5332.JPG DSCF5333.JPG DSCF5334.JPG DSCF5335.JPG DSCF5336.JPG DSCF5337.JPG DSCF5338.JPG DSCF5339.JPG DSCF5340.JPG DSCF5341.JPG DSCF5342.JPG DSCF5295.JPG DSCF5293.JPG DSCF5292.JPG DSCF5296.JPG DSCF5311.JPG

    @AussiePete, put it on the 'to do' list, and welcome. Nice lamp avatar.

    @nmp, new set of plug leads helped for a while. When I finally decided to fit new plugs I discovered at least one was screwed in just over finger tight. Wasn't happy when the head warmed up obviously.
    Bit of a schoolboy error there, I have said sorry to the van and it'll have Redex for a while to make up for it.

    The run to Newark, which was meant to give it a clear out, was possibly in vain, so there will probably be a few action shots on upcoming outings.

    Oops! Let’s hope that better compression etc helps and the van go up in your esteem! Rust is my problem now on my transit Sloan MOT fail may be on the cards!
