Just back this morning, and caught up on sleep before work. An amazing weekend so great to meet up with everyone again and meeting new members, to me anyway :D
Thanks to Neil, Nick and Jes for al their hard work putting

together :ok
Also a huge thank you to Neil and Sally for their hospitality and Neil and Nick for their Syncro aftercare which got us home. :ok , and of course the use aidans syncro hospital which helped us get down there :wink:
Still yet to empty the van of all the long overdue collection of various syncro bits that were waiting for me.
Regards the event very enjoyable and tested our driving skills very well proving that within reason and with a little help from your friends you can get a hightop into places where few would imagine possibile, although quite scratchy but some lovely lanes and no major damage suffered by anyone. :ok
I was one of the guilty few who didnt have working CBs I had the CB but no aeriel and wasnt connected in all the panic to get the van ready but will be prepared next time. I would say that I did miss the CB banter a lot and it adds another dimension to the whole laning experience so extremely recomended if you dont have one. I would say a quick briefing just to refresh people would be a good idea as sometimes we do forget and it gives everyone an idea of the day aswell.
It might be a good idea to grade of lanes/routes in colours like skiers do, the club in Ireland did it and made for a quick and easy visual reference for all concerned. This could also be done in terms of fluffyness aswell ?
As regards scratching paint I definately think that should be discussed in another thread which I may start :twisted:
In summary a great event and thanks again to all concerned for having us and in the words of Arnie I'll be back :) vids and pics to follow!

Hi All. Great to see that all enjoyed another great Syncro weekend. Just really sorry I couldn't get there.

In response to Wedgbury's

Anybody up for some scouting trips in the Shropshire/Powys area? for some suitable routes for a weekend for everybody.

This little video

was shot on lanes in that exact area. I'm pretty sure we kept a record some where of the co ordinates. (Not Trying to Hijack this thread so may be this should be continued on a new thread :oops: )

New vans are great but they just ain't got no soul!

Thanks Rich.
I remember watching it when you first posted it.

Been and brought some new paper maps (prefer them than digital) as mine from when I use to go green laning were a bit out of date.
Marked up the BOAT's from the definitive Map so now for a scope.

I'll start another thread and see if we have any takers, then sort out a weekend once they have been checked as I know the Landrover lads use them a bit and bolt on ali panels are cheaper to fix than best German Steel. :D
