Well what a lovely meet-up again. Me and my trusty Scarver were once again made very welcome at this excellent annual event. A special thanks to Mike Wright who (with a gentleman who's name I didn't catch) helped lift my bike off my muddied self when I toppled over on arrival at the campsite (my lace had caught on a bungee hook as I was getting off... :doh: ) The heavy rain didn't spoil the weekend one bit! Sorry I didn't get the chance to say farewell on the Sunday, Mike, I had a sore head :whistle:

See you soon, and once again I thoroughly recommend you put next years Princetown bash in your diaries.

Cheers Mike, I won a Dunlop jacket. A bit of 3-way bartering went on and I have ended up with a Belstaff jacket which I will pick up some time soon. Someone also got a tarp out of this negotiation. Apparently there's a get-together in your neck of the woods at the end of October (I think) but details are a bit sketchy due to my aforementioned sore head :oops:
Oh yes, it was a good weekend. :big grin:
