Yes, a great weekend meeting Rumcar people. Pity my car's exhaust broke it's back and spoilt the Saturday for me. Also , a shame over a dozen listed cars never arrived.

Thanks for the praise and gifts Jean for the 6-7 year struggle  ;D with Gordon. Also thanks to Jackie for the "Gordon" spanner. I hadn't got that size in my kit.

Rob.

Dear Forum Friends

Have you played spot the marshalls avoiding work at the Celebration Weekend?

Just go to the photo gallery on the celebration weekend web site and see Jim Lugsden pretending to be interested in invalid cars and Mike Plant trying to ignore his small shadow.

I gurantee there will be more on the way.

Hmm! If I censored everything there'd be nothing left! :-X I'm already sworn to secrecy concerning which micro bits fit what and what rarities are where etc etc...

 Ah yes, such were the high jinks that developed after dark following an unholy hook-up of the combined might of the Peel Mafia & the ICR...   ;)  Just remember though Peel fans, the ICR holds the incriminating blackmailable photos of just WHO was raiding the bar....   ;D  :o

 It's now late Monday night & the photos of the weekend are yet to be transferred from the camera, but from the ICR's corner, the weekend's highlights include;

 Myself & Ian Hellings traveling up by temperamental Sherpa pick-up & breaking down in the centre lane of the M25 in the middle of the Friday rush hour & causing "several" miles of traffic jams whilst I was under the bonnet whacking the diesel pump with a large stick....     :o

 Myself, Ian Hellings & Richard Morley dashing off into the Kent countryside just before the Saturday roadrun & coming back with a freebie Harding Electric carriage we had been offered providing we were prepared to drag it out of the hedge where it had lain for over a decade...    8)

 The aforementioned unholy Saturday Night union between the ICR & the Peel Mafia....   ;)

  Grant Kearney setting off across the field in pitch dark in his Peel Trident & almost rolling it after launching straight into that ditch which runs right across the field....    ::)

 Lining numbers 1, 2, 3 & 4 of the world's four smallest production cars up side by side.....    :o   8)

 Bob Dobie & his mate Ernie doing athletics on the back of the Sherpa having "volunteered" to assist loading up the AC All Weather & Harding on the Sunday Afternoon....    :-*

 My tent slowly disintergrating ever further as the weekend wore on.....   ::)

 How many can you remember?   ;D

So that was your tent!  We thought someone had reversed into it!  :o

I'd just like to add that it was a great weekend and we enjoyed it no end so thank you to all those involved for organising it.   :)

 Yep, that was my tent. Things started badly when one of the main poles broke at midnight Friday night, leaving me to prop the roof up with sticks. Then Sunday morning the sun melted the seams & the whole thing split down the middle & up the sides, so Sunday afternoon I jest scooped the whole lot into a wheelbarrow & brought it round to the field to try & pack it away in the Comtesse. I think the roving cameraman planty cought some of this? I  seem for some reason to be gaining a reputation for extreame camping, on the one hand with the amazing disintergrating tent & on the other turning up at the Peel rally in 2005 with the world's smallest micro tent which some folk mistook for two black sacks sewed together....   A big thanks indeed to the top bananna  :-* for taking pity on me for Sunday night & leaving me his pop-up tent for the duration when I was fully preparing to kip on a load of old cardbourd in the hay shed.   

 Right then, photos!  Here's four for going on with:-


The ICR's small contribution to the occasion.....


Deep in the Bubble Building, something intresting lurked....


Micro Marshall being persuaded that this is what he wants for next Christmas.....


Guess who got the booby prize....

NIce pictures Stuart. The story going around was that Ian had reversed into your tent, just a rumour then? My theory is that you fell onto it in an inebriated condition after being lead astray by the hard drinking Peel scientists, after all it is reported that you were holding two pints at a time or is this another rumour? I'm only pulling ya leg! It was good to meet Ian and his wife , they are really nice people. I wonder what the chances are of Jean allowing another two day event at the farm in the future? Maybe a biannual event?

You'll all be pleased to know that the booby prize was rapidly rehomed to one of the kids at the rally - on
condition that I took her and her Dad for a spin in the Tuk Tuk!

Seems like everyone had a cracking weekend - looking forward to the next one already.  Thanks to everyone
for putting it together.

Amities a tous et a toutes
