Ain't gonna be no Doom Bar, haven't been to Skinners, but I did take a little trip to St. Austell and the Cider Farm...

I've got the special 'clic' pliers somewhere to sort out those front leak off pipes in a jiffy. An hour of knuckle stripping and swearing can be five minutes of joy.. see if I can find them before I launch tomorrow. No one said anything to me about drunkards though, I only want to talk parts numbers with god fearing herbal tea swilling 'enthusiasts' thankyou [-o<

I'll be there Sat with enough tools to strip the car down to component parts and start again.
I'm thin enough to crawl out from under a BX that's on low too, so no problem, as long as we're all pissed and it's 2AM. It just aint Stratty unless car repairs are carried out by torch light after 90 beers.
Smokes lots, because enough's enough already!

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...

Damn, all this talk of pissed up spannering! I can't come to Stratford... Bloody work again. I expect fuzzy, out of focus pictures of much hilarity though :D

How late do they let you stay if you're not camping? I can't stay overnight but am keen to partake (by that I mean watch and laugh) in this amazing spectacle!

Actually, my car won't be being spannered at 2am, others may well be though!

Mine is my sons mobile bed and will be parked further down the field during "after hours"...

Kitch, I don't think they ever lock the gate, I seem to remember taking a walk pass the swingers camping field up to the gate one year, about 2am, and it was open then.

open 24 hours when events are on.
Jay, your son will kip just fine, we can spanner quietly, aside from the laughing!

You really, really really don't want to bring a camcorder, well not for that reason anyway.


Oooh oooh, there is normally a car boot on the sunday morning as well, but its usually over by 9:30am, so i don't often make it!
