    Just to say it was well worth the 300 mile round trip. I had a great time though no too much sleep! My camera when after the first picture, so I'll give it a try to get the pics up tomorrow.

    Thanks to everyone who made this event.
    I was too busy to take any photos so hopefully somebody else did.

    ...and then he usually lights up his 111 for a brew at about 6.00am... =; [-X

    I thought I had it all arranged but I couldn't make it in the end. It's a long story, beginning with the opening of the Tyne and Wear Metro in 1980. Basically, my plans just turned to sh*t... ](*,)

    I thought it may have been some thing medical David, I hoped you had not done your back in lifting all those stoves into the car boot from your lockup for me :lol: . I really enjoyed the whole weekend, Gary and his family, even the dog, worked really hard to make sure every thing went off with out a hitch. Well done Gary :D/ :D/ . I cannot wait for Newark now, the excitement =P~ =P~ has already started building.
