Well what can I say . . . It would have been a great weekend if the weather had been nice (my clothes were still wet even after the 4 hour journey back :eek: yeah supposed to be 2 and half hour)
But Saturday night more than made up for it with a nice curry in the town then a night in Churchills bar with Chris&Tim, Alan&Vonnie, Mark (charlie) & his wife (who's name escapes me) and Mark (sabertooth) & his wife.

It was great to see the usual suspects & put faces to some names I've not met before.(y)

The weather was awful, gusting wind with driving rain all day long, I don't know about plaques, I think everyone who turned up deserved a medal for 'Services Above & Beyond The Call Of Duty' lol!:)

Well after finally peeling my ass outta the driver's seat after a mammoth 5 hour journey home, stuck in a mega traffic jam on the M6, here are the pics I took for anyone who's interested. Those who didn't attend, sit back with a nice warm cuppa & count your lucky stars, those that did, pour yourself something stronger & check between your toes for signs of webbed feet & beneath your ears to see if you've grown any gills!:LOL:

Great photo's Mark, you defo deserve a medal for all of that. The battering we all took just doesn't show in these photo's, but the rain was torrential, the wind was just staggering, apart from that it was a very nice day o_O
Just a few from me:

After a ten minute battle with the elements, we arrived dripping at the North pier coffee bar.

I think Adz has some allergy to anybody with a camera! :LOL: Mark aka Sabretooth in the background checks his head is still securely fixed :oops: and Tim i think is just looking for a dry spot :)

Meanwhile, Mark (charliecd001) contemplates beating the living daylights out of that penny daisy o_O
