Excellent piccies, which if I may, will add to compliment the article for group mag.

Richard, my new rule for you (I apply it to myself) is that you must never wash your kit! LOL. I reckon four more days or events wearing that kit and you'll start to look nicely rag tag!!!! rabbit

Btw I do like that picture of Sam and Richard walking along, both look fecked!!!

Feel free to use which ever ones you want for the group mag.

By that stage, about 1030-1100 on Sunday, we were all knackered Sleep Sleep

BTW, here's a pic of Richards boudoir, complete with memory foam pillow Laughing

Oh ffs, the 'Pick on Richard weekend' has continued into the following week!!! Sad
Yes I was a bit clean, so no clothing will now be washed. My belt looked a bit loose as well. As Sam says it was knackering and the pillow is not memory foam it is latex... Razz
Seriously though those are some great pictures and just goes to show what we can all achieve.

Cheers

Richard.

Richard, you deserve credit for attending, I can't talk I slept in the car on Saturday, at least you had the foresight to bring a cot and so forth. You are a valued member of the team mate.

Murph, thanks for your kind words. Nothing has been taken personally it is all a great bit of banter!! I was just going along with it. I meant nothing serious by my comments so please don't think I am upset!!. I couldn't wish for a better group of blokes to spend the weekend with. Cool BTW The furry thing on me bed is my M43 liner.

Tony- absolutely superb!!! Looking forward to collating the article. My minds is in overdrive with this one. I've spoken to Murph about my ideas for the article and I'll say no more than that.

Richard, if we didn't feel you could take part in the banter, we wouldn't include you. It is not our aim to upset anybody silent

And that does look like baby beowolf Laughing Laughing
