Well I can't find any other 'after' JAE threads so we'll go with this one :thumbsup:

What can I say, another awesome weekend was had by all I believe with the old, the new & some converts I believe as well to the GTROC culture :p


My special thanks go :

* SIMON & JACKIE who much to my surprise turned up on the Thursday to help me set up the stand & keep guard on it till the rest of the rabble arrived on Friday! They also stuck around on Sunday pack up our stand as well as saving my aching back from by sourcing an inflatable mattress that I forgot to bring on Saturday morning as two nights on that ground was hell!

* ROSS & PENNY/PENNIE !?!! (aka. Grandad & G.W.A - Grandma with attitude - or GWAGWA (pronounced Gwaa Gwaa) if you also call Ross 'Grandad with Attitude' ;) ) who constantly pulled rabbits out of the hat to provide freezer services so you all didn't die of food poisoning. Lighting, petrol, the BBQ, charcoal & a whole host of stuff that kept us all going that you wouldn't have been aware of behind the scenes.

* Those responsible for the new GTROC media unit which obviously was well liked or envied by the number of times our stand was mentioned during all the events on Friday & Saturday by the commentators!

* The FUG & all his team for another dam fine J.A.E - what a top location Wicksteed Park was which many people agreed - though next year can we 01.) have the same spot? 02.) Have Team Sushi in the same place too as they were superb neighbours! 03.) Maybe a little earlier in the months than September so the evenings are warmer :chuckle: 04.) A toilet block nearer to us please so guided tours & 'armed' expeditions weren't needed in the hours of darkness from a few twats there ...

* DANNYH our raining eating champion who didn't manage to vomit in this years eating contest :thumbsup: :p Apparently though, Danny informs us that MOO will be taking his place next year ... :p

* KEVIN & the 'DARK SMURF' from the Nissan stand as well as CINNY & her son from Banzai :thumbsup: Legends are you all & you know why :p

* IMS & DAVEW for the banter, the valeting & of course the pyromaniacs dream of a brazier (sorry BBQ as your not allowed braziers) for warmth on Saturday night :thumbsup:

* MOO for the comic relief & built in PA system :runaway: :p

* Everybody for not dying once more after my BBQ's so my reputation continues ... not :p

* Everyone who contributed over the weekend who made this years stand what it was & we also won a nice big trophy for our troubles too in the form of "BEST ACTIVITIES ON CLUB STAND" :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: Well done everyone :clap:


As I said I could go on as there were loads of you to mention, but I'm crap with names & still bloody tired after seven hours of sleep between Thursday & Sunday - so as your names come back to me or I get reminders I'll post those later :thumbsup:

I didn't take many photos as I left that to others this year with everything I was doing but I'll post what I have soon. In the meantime ...

Just to add to the comments:

big thanks to :
  • Fuggles (& all those involved in the fit out) for the excellent events vehicle (and JAE of course!)
  • Kriss and his partner (...aka "his glamarous assistant") who looked after the stand, cooked, forced themselves to stay awake when they should have gone to bed, just so they could lock up our drinks/equipment etc and made sure everything ran smoothly.:bowdown1:
  • Everyone there for the company and fun (sorry if I appeared rude - I was just doing my annual all day clean to the car and happily chatted to people imbetween).
Pity so many left so early on Sunday - not normally what happens:runaway:.

few pics to follow (though mostly mine and Dave's...sorry, we had to record some of the cleaning results):p;)

Lots! The Club is always looking to provide the best facilities it can for members. Even now the GTROC Unit is not finished but it was close enough to be used at this event and was what won us the trophy for "Best Activities on a Club Stand"

What you can't see is the 42" plasma, DVD player, PC and other stuff inside the unit, as well as the 20' telescopic lighting tower used at night, all run off our own generator. A pretty good start admittedly but we could do with more! :)
