Yep, a superb weekend.

Thanks to Dave for organising it, Sheila for sorting me out with camping gear (and dinner... and breakfast!) and Eddy, for sharing his pitch.

I can't wait for the next one.

Back home only 5 1/2 hours ;) was great to meet a few if you at last. Thanks for making me welcome. Must remember to check my kit before next time. I was missing the correct t-ring for the DSLR. Thanks to Mike for the loan of his and Ron for pointing out my mistake when setting up. That's what I get for updating the handset the night before I left. ;) and thanks to all who stopped by to say hello it was good to be able to thank Baz in person for the battery and Glider for sorting me out with the missing part for my auto-focuser a while back. A very friendly club and well worth the journey

Thanks Dave for sorting this, it was a great success. Thanks to all those who said hello.

Tom, you're most welcome, shame you never really got a chance to use it, but at least we now know what you need. Glad you made it back safe Tom. I was back in ust over 2 hrs, and have had a quick power nap. 5.00am Sat morning and 4am this morning and 1 degree C are getting towards my limits I think... need to invest in better camping equipment and a fan heater I think!

Thanks again one and all, great time was had by all I think.
