    Just a quick one fella,

    How about user name badges? I'd have worn one.

    Being a newbie to UKGSER events I spent a fair bit of time wondering who was who so to speak?

    Just an idea

    I have to say ... (we had a quick chat on Sunday morning (990 Adv) that is was a bloody fantastic weekend in all aspects! I amazed how relaxed you looked throughout!

    a taller/ bigger tent... cos the bands heads all looked chopped off and the beams got in the way abit from further back. it could also be a wet weather/ sun protection area...

    otherwise it was the best one I've been to so far...

    thanks very much for all the hard work Steve...that you and everyone put in to make it work.

    I'm with Shep on this - I think Elvis has done his time.

    Blues Brothers were a complete hit - brilliant. I missed a large chunk due to babysitting duties, but could hear from the tent

    I wouldn't be too bothered about an outside bar - sounds like alot of effort in comparison to a few steps up to a fully equipped bar

    It's a great event Steve - you've little to worry about

    Maybe a bit less Elvis.

    Other than that, 'if it ain't broke don't fix it'

    We all reckoned it was the best Hograost yet

    Wasn't able to join you this weekend but on the choice of music, Ska bands are great at bike do's.
    Tiff had a local band playing at her weekend in Lands End earlier this year and they were brilliant, everyone ends up dancing

    I'd love to come up with something brilliant but I can't. It was great just as it was.

    Perhaps less Elvis though.

    I thought that Elvis should have been a little further away from the food queue - somewhere like Basingstoke would have been fine!

    I heard his 'Don't clap on your own' joke(?) three time while I was queuing.

    It was a great, relaxed weekend. I agree that perhaps Elvis maybe past his best, or maybe just a shorter gig?

    I would have like to see the hog roasting! A few others commented on this too.

    Maybe some more picnic tables for folks to sit round during the day / evening?

    All meant as vague suggestions, not criticism.

    Thats not really viable for large numbers of people, as the pigs are roasted in steves bakery ovens.

    I did go along and help the "two daves" into the oven as they are heavy buggers and need a lot of man handling into the ovens.

    An success of an outside bar is obviously weather dependent. OK, so far it's only rained once out of the 5 Hograosts I've attended, but you can bet that the minute you go to the expense and effort to get an outside bar, there will be a hurricane warning.

    My suggestion would be more custard donuts. You can never have too many custard donuts.
