    Yes Kev, 2004, the year before the first Newark, I believe.
    I think I spot Mick Em and the wonderful Paul.

    I remember booking that, it was at the Folly Pie pub at Napton, the same place that the BSA owners club used to have their East Midlands camp. I think the pub is still there, but most of the site has been redeveloped for housing....there's a surprise.!!

    Hey, @kev_c ,

    Great photos!! So this was pre-Newark?? VERY cool, indeed!! Who, amongst our Merry Band of Stove Pyros, attended that event? Was this early event, the genesis for the first Newark event? I surely do wish I could make it over there for an event like this one, or Newark, or just to see as many of our Stovie Mates as possible!! Thanks for sharing this, and here's to more fun events in the future! Take care, and God Bless!

    Every Good Wish,
    Doc
