    Well Just been hunting through my stoves and found a 96. Looks complete. I cant bring many stoves with me as prob short on room ( mobility scooter takes up the boot. So tent etc will be on back seats).
    The 96 will be coming together with one or two stoves that have some meaning to me. I am sure someone will be able to give me a hand with the 96 if any problems. I seem to remember firing it up not long ago.
    Going to start packing tonight.

    @David Shouksmith They are fine but in recovery, waiting for some more mature and dare I say wiser blood to arrive. Have a good time counting 1,2,3, etc. What a way to urn a crust.

    I took along a load of odds & ends Bryan had left after he'd sold off his collection. I'm pleased to say that just about all of it sold & along with the money raised by the stove wanging competition (thanks to Big @kev_c for contributing his winnings!) I'll be handing over £469 to Sandra tomorrow for the St Cuthbert Hospice in Durham.

    Top effort! :clap:

    That's excellent Ross.

    The pizza party raised £50 for Theo's favorite charity, Leash of Life.

    Well we are back in Stoke on the way home.
    We BOTH had such a fun weekend!
    Everyone has been so helpful and friendly.
    I must confess I came with some trepidation about if I would manage and how Anne ( who was not a camper) would find things.
    Well we both had a great time. Great food, fun company. Everyone was so helpful.
    I never though I would be stove throwing lol.
    I am sure there will be pictures in time.
    Next year we will be in the rally field.
    We would both like to thank all who went for such an enjoyable weekend.
    Alan and Anne
