Every year the Syncropendence Organisers have to take a refresher course in pyschic studies before announcing the event...
After months of shouting... when is it, when is it... always the weekend before Camperjam and originally the 4th July Independence weekend.
Then the long long road of dribs and drab bookings begins...
Its now 3 days away...
If you intend to come we NEED your booking form TODAY for legal reasons... Jenny would also like not to have to dig an underground stash every year for hundreds of £cash for safe keeping.
So payment by cheque on arrival OK but BACs transfer or PayPal best. Genuine no shows always refunded.
Many thanks for those commiting early
:)

Hopefully now all the bookings are in and paperwork was sent out to everyone last night. If you haven't got it check your spam/junk mail etc first and then get back to me!

Hi Guys.

I hope the weather is kind to you and you all have a great weekend of drinking, eating, off roading and syncro talk.

Hope I can catch you all later in the year.

Cheers Rich

Thanks Rich.

Very quiet in here.. Maybe everyone's busy in the garage on last minute prep... Or are you all on 'social media' ?

Anyway. ONLY ONE MORE SLEEP TO GO !!!

:D

Home again. Weekend was blessed with fine weather and finer people. Thanks Jenny and Clive for organising yet again and thanks to all the people who make things happen throughout the event- without whom we'd never shift our butskis away from the beer fridge. Top job.

Sorry to say i'll not be loading my pix on here, my patience with PB has reached its end - very little to get excited about but I'll chuck them on FB.

:ok

We don't do Facebook... it would be a shame if photobucket managed to kill this forum, where others have failed.

Well just to give an idea, here are pics of (1) Saturday night feast gathering and (2) a young man in a Land Cruiser and (3) the same forcing down breakfast after a night with Mr Smirnoff :))
Really good to see faces both familiar and new, lots of hugs all round (aah!)
It was a storming weekend.ImageImageImage

What a great weekend!
The weather was mental... everybody at work has been complaining about bad weather... im complaining about sunburn.

Thanks to everybody who did anything to help organise the event. You guys are great.

Special thanks to Shaun for ferrying us up and down the hill, and also for helping to get the parents T5 in and out of the field. Really appreciate it buddy. Thank goodness Sam drove it out hey??!!

If i get time tonight i will sit and go through the photos.
Only took us 6 hours to get home last night. boo.

As usual, Rose loved the off roading (thanks again Shaun)... Sam might have had a little accident at the top of the steep hill on the course.

Thanks again folks!

In truth Aidan, I did very little, just stuck my oar in :roll: . Dave, Shaun and Ian had it well in hand and made it what it was. I think that's why I was banished to the other side of the hill to "Marshall point Billy" :rofl

Nice to see you again, time just flew by, till the next time :ok

We hope that the little trials course was entertaining enough without being intimidating for newcomers? We went for variety ;)

Shaun did a great job of repeatedly scrabbling round it without lockers on road tyres (and getting jammed in G for a short while) and we only had so many white canes...
