So please post your reviews, comments, banter and media in this thread for all to enjoy... 8) 8) 8)

Cant wait to see what you have got... ( but can wait for the Horses45 mankini pics though...can wait a very long time for them!!!!)

Have a safe journey home everyone...
Check out the index thread below where pics/reviews from all our past meets can be found!!!!

Looks like I'm in trouble with the Mrs's again...
She asked me what I'd most like to do to her body...
Apparently "Identify it" is not the correct answer!

...rumour has it that this stunt will be an unbreakable Guinness world record for the worlds biggest wedgie,

...and it was reminiscent of a strand of cotton being placed between two badly parked VW beetles! :shock:

Dont have a lot to say, spoke to a few, had a few beers and a few shots of stronger stuff, which helped with the cold.

What looked like being a very wet weekend turned out to be a nice dry one with a bit of nice sun. Had a cracking time with some good people, heres to the next annual.

Welldone to all involved with organisation too... :thumbup:

Should have followed Jim (wilberforce) into the water then he managed it and then it took about an hour to get him out :rotfl:

We went up for a bit on the Saturday, would have stayed longer if it wasn't for the bloody kids playing up :evil:

I posted a few I took onto FB, hope the link works:
http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set= ... 929&type=1 Feel free to Tag, Share, Like etc.

If that doesn't work, if your logged into FB, they are on my timeline http://www.facebook.com/drewsphotography

Mrs H has also posted the link into the FOG FB group.

Great event, and good to catch up with a few old faces. Shame we missed Jim and Trugga, but there's always next year.
For what it's worth it was worth all the while
It's something unpredictable but in the end is right
I hope you have the time of your life

Had a brilliant time, nice to meet up with dome old faces as well as new ones. Shame most of the lanes were shut but can't be helped. Enjoyed watching people get stuck in weird and wonderful ways Jim was clearly the winner of most stuck for me as it was epic, the paddling bare foot in freezing water was funny as hell.

Thanks to Ste & co for organising another great event, roll on the next one.

I didn't get to go out on the course as the wench killed a tyre (guess what her birthday presents going to be) but it looked great fun and Dan (hippo1024) couldn't help but try every obstacle there was.

Image

Thanks to fudge for helping rescue people out there.

Thanks to Rob & co for the BBQ you didn't let any of us go hungry that's for sure, I'm now repaying you by posting your mankini video in glorious HD :P

Classic vid. Deserves a thread of it's own.

Rob - can you set up a just giving account or similar so those of us who didn't make it can add to the cancer research collection?

Good idea mate, Indeed there is a second video so might be worth doing something like it won't be posted until donations reach X amount. I'll leave it up to the powers that be to decide.

Check out the youtube suggested tags for the video :D

Well great weekend great site. Was a shame about the lanes though did get stuck on the first lane but i am running road tyres and a standard fronty but thanks to jum for a pull soon going again. Car preformed flawlessly on the site and went more places than i thought it would gonna take a week to clean the outside and just as long for the inside. And clothes are a tad muddy. Just dont mention the dogbite :drink: :party: :dance:
