Sounds good, we are really looking forward to it.

What time do the talks you mentioned start?

We probably won't arrive until 7.30pm.

Great show, moved on from last year which is always a good sign. A massive selection of vehicles to see and loads of stories / trips / experience to talk over with owners. Have to say that the Syncronaughts showed in force and there was a real buzz about the crew. A really good turnout. :ok

Had a great time, got some good ideas, drunk some bloody strong rum and some nasty Buckfast and stayed up well too late :lol:
Was good to catch up with everyone :D

This was my first show with the Syncronauts, and I'd like to thank everyone for the warm welcome. Enjoyed the show immensely, but sadly I had to shoot off early to get home. The only thing missing was some auto jumble.

Man that was good.

It was awesome to be part of the Syncro presence at the show. All the the people from the Overland network that came by our stall to say hi were sent straight over to the Syncronauts afterwards by Harriet as they really liked the Syncro vans. Saturday night was probably one of the best laughs I have ever had at an event and I had to make myself go to bed.

Thanks to everyone who bought stuff from us and hung out with us. All the kids had a great time playing in our storage/stock box's and I have just unloaded the bits we brought back into boxes all coloured in and look like train carriages :lol: When Jake turned up on the Sunday and I managed to have a good walk round and bought some choice bits and bobs. Isaac was very upset when we all split up and had to leave but there is always next year.

Loved it :ok

Absolutely amazing weekend. We, as usual felt really welcome.

This is by far the best show we go to. We will be definitely be going again next year and we will also be attending Hubb UK.

Saturday nights gathering for nibbles turned out to be a tasty meal with lots of variety and plenty of booze and laughs.

We managed to attend the game preparation and the tracking talks and demonstrations. Both were very interesting. Gemma removed the breast from a Wood Pigeon without a knife and also helped with cutting up a Deer. Not bad for someone who is a bit squeamish!

what A weekend !

again thanks to everyone that helped put the club area together ! Cracking weekend, rally loved the Mexican night, all the food was superb, really really awesome time to be around you guys (as always). To my opinion, our club has such a diversity of people with different background / age / stories / etc, and still we have a lovely time ! Best club around !
Booze was awesome ! Shame that a few of you guys left before Saturday night ! We had a really good lough ! A couple of blurry guys came over and sat with us and i think they loved it too !
Only down, shame we couldn't camp all together, maybe next year we can make that clearer to the organizer.

Truck wise: impressed but also a bit desapointed, not enough army vehicle converted to camper which i would have loved to have a look inside. 250K for them big one ... not my cup of tea...
Going around the campsite we met some brilliant guy, specially an old guy that was nearly living in his landies full of little bits ... brilliant person !
one HUGE 101 that looked superb covered in Iron Maiden sticker ! ACE !
one GAZ chemical nuclear and biological tactical vehicle with a interesting trench passing over wheel devise.

Product wise; mmmmm some stuff was expensive but overall i think was super quality stuff ! (spent hours in the army surplus) (can't go wrong with army gear!)
Campervanculture stand was brilliant, and all the other stand.

Definitely a show to go back to !

Special thanks to The pianist .... and Craig for his bottle of Buckfast ... the Mexican refreshing drink (with Everest salt) was lovely

well it's gonna be a long wait to the next one :-( already feels like ages ! . Carla and me didn't take much pics if anyone has, please share :ok
