    Safely home and reflecting on the outstanding generousity of Bill and the hard work that must go in to organising an event like this. Thanks to everyone involved. A superb event which seemed to be enjoyed by all.

    Must remember to stand closer to the pizza oven if there is ever a repeat, that way I may get to taste some more of the creations.

    I'm surprised that Rastus, clearly a dog of excellant breeding, continues to associate with Att although it appears that he elequently expressed an opinion this weekend.

    Lastly, just to confirm I'm a twat of the highest calibre (though most probably know this already), I managed to loose another pair of glasses on the way home. Stopped to layer up at Tebay and that was the last I saw of them. Only realised I wasn't wearing them when I couldn't read the predicted arrival time on the satnav. Prescription bifocul, reactolite..........., even more bloody expensive than the last lot I lost at STD2. Aaaaaaarrrrrrgggghhhhhh.

    Bill, you've excelled yourself.

    I'd told my non GS riding mate about the bash, and he was worried he wouldn't enjoy it. On our way to Wales today, he said that as soon as booking for next year is open, we are in.

    Not happy that Att wouldn't answer the knocking on his door at midnight, but it was funny waking the dog up knowing that Dave would've been doing his nut!

    The come down from this will be big.

    Thanks for the accolades, as you all realize there are many involved in making a weekend happen and I lost count of the number of people who quietly asked if there was anything they could do to help.
    Being in the middle of the county helps to draw folks from far and wide, many who haven't seen each other for a few years, so if it helps reunite old friends, so much the better. The numbers who came across the water to be in Staffordshire was nice to see.
    I was given some hand made gifts, a craftsman made knife which feels so right when in the hand, and a caricature drawing which has captured much more than just my image, it's like someone has been following me about for a few months and seen what really goes on around those barns. A fine Irish pewter mug which will only be filled with milk for a day or two whilst I try to rescue a few of the remaining brain cells.
    The weather was with us for the ride-outs and the outside catering, everyone should have a pizza oven I think.
    I do get quite stressed in the couple of weeks leading up to the event, and this carried over somewhat into the event itself this year.
    Thank you all for coming and our thoughts are with those unable to attend for whatever reason this year and those fighting their own personal battles as well.
    Cheers everyone.
    Bill Jakey and Crumpet.

    Thanks from me too Bill, what a great weekend with great company and great food. Everything was taken care of for us.

    Am I the only one that by paying so little it feels like we've had Bill over?

    I can only echo what everyone else has said. Thank you so much once again Bill for another excellent event. It was great to see old friends, some of which I haven't seen for a few years now, and to meet a few new ones as well.
    How long is it until the next one and when does the booking open?

    What an absolutely cracking weekend, it was fantastic to meet up with everybody and for Helly to meet some of these miscreants at last.

    An enormous thanks to Bill the Alchemist who has somehow managed to distill out the spirit of UKGSer for all to enjoy over one glorious weekend

    At least my pair that fell into the portaloo were poundshop ones.

    You are so right! I've decided that I need to train myself to always put them in a pocket when I take them off. I had a habit of hanging them on the tie down point on the pannier, hung there for about 20 miles on Saturday's bimble. The speed and cross wind as I rejoined the motorway must have been too much

    I can't really add to all above as I ain't great with words.

    Bloody Brilliant.
