 Applause Party!

Looks a good selection of games.
Though I'm now dreading being roped into playing in a few, since I know people running them. Totally ruins my miserable sod image  No talking

I'm going to be a normal show-goer this time, so I s'pose I'll have to pay this year to get in  Cry

I turn left 99% of the time when I leave the house.

The right turn is a really horrid wiggly-windy' road which I avoid, as much as possible.
Only go that way, to meet the library van, once a month.  Cheesy

Cheers - Phil

I turn left 100% of the time when I leave the house, otherwise I fall over the fence into next door.

I turn right, or I'm in my garage, which only has one door!

Having been sent round some very tiny wriggle roads down your end Techno, I can sympathise! The sat-nav had a habit of deciding we wanted to see "scenic" routes and sending us either along coastal routes you couldn't get a moped down, or through the firing range at awkward times of the day Wink

Nice views and cool rally driving mind Wink

When Meirion popped over to see me.....I sent him 'non sat-nav' instructions how to get to Techno Towers.
From where he was staying, it's a fairly straightforward drive......As long as you don't take the 'short cuts' the sat-nav will give you.

Those are OK(ish) if you know the area.....But if not..... Grin Grin Grin Grin (I certainly don't use the short cuts.....They take longer, anyway.)

Rallying ?.......We get one of those past us, every year, early morning, late in Autumn (They always warn us though.)

It's surprised me that there's never been a bad accident. Though they very occasionally take a lump out of the stone walls that border the roads.

Cheers - Phil

It was more ME rallying than other drivers, all felt a bit like I'd stepped into a very realistic and awkward driving sim Cheesy

After the first years visit you get to know which is the bad route and avoid them Wink

Am really looking forward to the show. The stafford and district crew will probably travel up on the Friday. Any good hotels close by? Any recommendations of a good curry house as well? 😀

There's a Premier Inn only a mile away, where a lot of the traders stay: http://www.premierinn.com/gb/en/hotels/england/county-durham/stockton-on-tees/stockton-on-teesmiddlesbrough.html?cid=GLBC_MIDTAL  The prices are usually quite reasonable, around 30-35 per night.  There's a restaurant next door to it, or there's a whole variety of restaurants just over the A66 in Teesside Park.

I am promising myself a visit next year. Unfortunately finances won't take the strain this year as it will mean a couple of nights overnight.

We can fit you in for a game as well if you'd be up for it?
