    many thanks to sid and team for another great wee-kend

    is there any truth in the rumour that the event is moving to wales next year to increase the level of rainfall?

    Thanks Sid and Ann for opening your home up to a load of (mostly) old tossers and making it THE EVENT OF THE YEAR once again, also thanks to all who helped.

    Yes many thanks Sid and Friends for making it a cracking weekend. Went to watch only and ended up replacing the front wheel bearing (well I fetched the tools at least) .

    Many thanks to all those who made it possible for me to get home.

    Wheel bearings lasted the run, though something strange going on with it so will take the shop in the coming week or so.

    Can only agree with previous comments. Many , many thanks to Sid and Anne for opening their home and all the hard work by them and others, Sumprat for this cooking skills and for making me laugh on Sat night. (gawd knows how he got up to do breckies, Proff and especially Barb, the BBQ team and anyone else I may have forgotten. Especially all the other Tossers who make this such a pleasant, enjoyable event..... Totally bonkers the lot of you
    Just a funny aside,When I got home .I have to get the bike off the trailer at the top of the drive then take the trailer off the motorhome and walk it down the rather steep drive to the side of the garage before backing the motorhome down to the side of the house. First bit went well and the bike was put in the garage, doors left open. Trailer lined up and started off down the drive ,controlling the speed with the handbrake. Bloody thing started to gather speed so I let the lever up to apply the brake.... you guessed it, FA happened and the trailer set off at an ever increasing rate of knots, I went and fell over so let go and had to watch as the bloody thing first hit the side of the drive on the left, changed its mind and decided to attack the right hand side before casting its beady eye on the open garage door with my nice RT sitting snugly inside... Good job I had decided to not bother washing her until tpomorrow. I had to watch helpless as it changed direction again and headed towards our car, then thankfully it took an instant dislike to our nice new plastic drainpipe outside the front door and ended up shattering it and finally coming to rest. Gave it a bloody good thrashing, I can tell you

    That was close

    You know the caravan club lay on reversing courses don't you?

    Alternetively 'and somewhat more fun' you could fit a dickie seat and a set of twitch brakes. To add a little extra control of course

    Glad the damage was limited to a plastic drain pipe, could have been so much worse.
