nice G,

all i was getting at, again, is you are not allowing newbies to join you, you are all experienced off roaders and valued members of this site, as it was once said you are all at a certain level of of-roading, (or something like that, can not be bothered to go back and get the right words) but we where all newbies at one point,

if we all organised of roading of the site, the newbies that join would never get a chance to get out with the experienced lads like yourselves

G maybe it would be a good idea for someone to give Rich a lift over to the next BC & S pub meet so that we can have a real time chat on this issue & get the official Admin input on this,it may be that Greg is expressing a personal view rather than a "team" view/policy.

What ever any member of this forum do in their time is their business, should they jump out of planes or go laning with mates it is up to them and up to them who they take along.

If a group of FOG members want to get together to go laning off forum it is up to them, I occasionally go laning with mates from another forum, does that make me a bad person?

People arrange newbies laning days because they want to organise them, it is not compulsory, people can do what they want, we are a free group not a club .

Cheers Ste, enough said on this matter I think.

What I want to say is a Big BIG THANKS to all you muppets (said with endearment) that yet again made this a great weekend to remember.
And Special Thanks to the Ben, Andy (Diders), Mick (Dogga), Nelson, and Jack, who took over changing my wheel faster than a formula one pit crew :lol: on Chapel Gate when the side wall of my tyre was holed.
I bet Jack can never take a shower again without looking over his shoulder :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
