    First Pic

    I went over for a ride and to shoot the breeze with a few of the Tossers. Had to ride through a snow storm for the last couple of miles Arrived to find Shep putting his tent up in the Teepee village

    Lingered for an hour or so, a few more had turned up looking a bit chilled (not in a good sense) and Proff and Barb turned up in the wobblybox.

    Back home in the warm now, I don't envy the happy campers tonight

    Best of luck you hardy people you

    I just got my body core temperature up to near normal again, I set off in falling snow to have a nippy ride down to Broseley yesterday, I just managed to get my tent up before the blizzard hit, there was no choice but to make a tactical withdrawal to the warmth of the "Shed" where thankfully essential supplies were available a jolly evening ensued .
    Big thanks to the organisers, and nice to see old Tossers again and to meet new ones

    I did try to take a picture inside but Proff but a hex on it.

    Thanks to the organisers for their work, and some excellent grub both last night and again this morning. Shame I couldn't do two nights.

    you have forgot to add the bit about you making a fast tactical lay down of the GS on your exit.
    i believe Brother toad managed to capture the moment amidst the larfing

    Karma?

    Brother toad managed to make a fast tactical lay down of his GS on his exit.
    Unfortunately I put my camera down and helped instead of taking a picture . I did think about asking him to re-enact the incident but thought better of it.

    I had to lay er down in order to stop a stampeding horse I was hoping someone captured the moment, I thought it best getting it out of the way early on, there were some decidedly glossy bits in the shade on the way home, perhaps Toad will post the pic?
