Not predictable ... just a creature of habit when it comes to mechanics ;)

man you were a natural, and thought it's only fair you did it so you could explain entire history of frontera :P

I was tempted to say that "The Frontera was merely an Isuzu in drag" to get back at you all ... though I doubt I would of survived the night :D

Thanks for coming guys, I'm just sorry I didn't get time to say hello until about 3pm and there was no one at the stand - all watching the seesaw and twist-off challenge I guess.
Anyway, I think it went rather well, tbh.
Hopefully next year there will be a bigger uptake on all sides now people and traders can see that we are serious about this event taking off.
Please do take the time to email Gary at the office with any useful feedback, it's all very handy.

Cheers
DEANO

PS: SLROC members were giving charity rides as well as Marshalling all the public driving and we raised a wonderful £1280 quid for our local causes.

No problem Deano ... if you want to use some of my photos then your more than welcome. All I ask is you blank the registrations out.

There was some confusion as to wether this was the first show or not. I gathered you have regular events, but this is the first time it was open to the public.

The green laning site wasn't too bad I reckon, but would suggest a 2" lift or even just removing your towball. The marshalls were great as well stopping you before the tricky bit and telling you the best way to go about it asking if you had done the course already and explaining things. The play course was quite technical, though to be honest I reckon some of the areas on the Avalanche site were more demanding.

Well finally got my computer back :dance:, what a great weekend even the weather wasn't too bad, think we found a new member, he is currently looking for a new rad. The show stand looked great a BIG thanks to Tom for getting us all organized, and great to have so many of us down there I think we could of had more, as we grabbed loads of space just in case :?

I think we were the only non LD stand

I forgot what a hangover was until sunday morning damm strongbow :drink: :oh yer:

My comments would be a bit more signage for the show area, try to get more auto jumble stands, but all in all a great weekend.

Here are my photos I took lots :D
