Well what can i say.....fantastic weekend. Very well organised thanks to Si (Toomanytoys ) and all the helpers marshals and drivers. I drove total of 27miles of rides over two days. Nursie behaved impeccable and jayne was pretty good as well. Great food and company as always. You all should come next year even if 2wd. Mockie hope all is ok with the little un we saw you returning as we left.

Second that, in every respect. Thanks for the quick spin around the course at the end of the day, I am starting to feel like a syncronaut again ;)

Glad she's OK Zoe, hope it all heals nicely. Aside from injuries it was a great weekend and my Hannah loved it, although I'm not sure she or Simon have recovered from my driving the doka around the off road course!!

Yes, thanks to everyone there for your concern , support and help, Phil for looking , Shaun for your fast response , Simon and Gilly for keeping an eye on Jack while I fought with the traffic and fetch Zoe and Georgi back this afternoon.
The Camperjam medics were fantastic, going over and beyond what they needed to do, the ambulance service were useless and I will be making a complaint .
The staff at Telford Hospital were very nice and professional by all accounts ....


Georgi is tough, me not so !

To all the drivers and the support team, thank you so much for making this weekend another memorable one. Hopefully when the final tally is in, it will be worth the sweat and time. I had a great time and although I put £6 in the jet wash, I doubt I got rid of all the red mud. Mind you I'm also probably not welcome at Tescos jet wash again...

Thanks in particular to Simon for arranging it once again, which i know is no mean feat. To Gillian, Jim, Ethan and Fiona for running the passenger terminal - Stansted could learn from you! Also the marshals, Ian, Phil, Sharon, Aidan, Paul and of course Hannah for being probably the scariest marshal! Did we ever practise the emergency stop?

Special mention goes to Daniel for his tireless and ever jovial cajoling to keep the line busy.

Well done to Jane, Kirsty, Luis for sitting in the blazing sun selling merchandise to top up the pot for charity.

And of course the drivers: Geoff, Simon, Dave, Ben (and me), who kept smiling as yet another sweaty yoof, dripping small person, or screaming scouse girl clambered into their trucks. There were some sights you can't unsee.... eh Geoff?

Thanks also to Jenny and Clive who are doubtless still counting £s and accounting for the cash. Of course thanks for supporting the event, ensuring the insurance etc was in place - a thankless and unseen task.

Until next year!

(Weren't the bogs nice a clean for a change.... :run )

I'd just like to echo what Winchweight posted, and say well done to everyone who helped out and put in so much hard work.

Plus a big thank you to everyone who made it across to us and put their pounds in the boxes, particularly those people who stuck in a few extra quid.

Hopefully more people will join us next year to camp even if they can't help out, and also more of you will get a chance to come and have a ride.

:ok

Only made it for the day but was great to see everyone well done to all the drivers and marshalls for their hard work and representing the syncronauts. Good to the smiles on the passengers faces and the screams and yelps coming from the vans going around the course

Morning all..
Well.. it was gone 7 before we had finally packed and cleared up and left Weston Park..

I was too tired last night to post.. sorry..
So here, in addition to the above.. :ok

Those that gave up their time helping and tirelessly putting in the effort, you are truly amazing people.. I think all of you appreciate how much work goes on in the background.. (Its a lot) I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your support. :ok

So a MASSIVE personal thank you to:- David, Kirsty, Esther, Scarlett, Daniel, Ian, Sharon, Ben, Hannah, Dr Phil, Mocki, Zoe, James, Fiona, Shaun, Geoff, Jayne, Paul, Aidan, Kaye, Simon, Luis, Ethan and Gillian. (have I missed anyone?? I really dont mean too, but we all know how good I am with names...)

Of course Clive and Jenny for you advice, support and encouragement..
I also thank the CamperJam team for assisting with my requests and being bloomin nice people..

Fantasticly, we took the following..



The donation boxes had £25.31
The CJ18 family pass draw in honour of our good friend Pete Pollard (PC 52) kindly donated by CamperJam, made £185
The rides and merchandise (charity items and the superb limited edition badges made by Daniel) made a staggering £1530


Thats a total of £1740.31

For that.. I have to thank the totally wonderful passengers and passers by for being generous and finding out what an amazing ride it truly is.. :ok

I really hope to see more Club 80-90 members next year..

Now that is something worth shouting about!
Next year, more vans, more drivers and more publicity.
Maybe a bit of a static display to catch the eye? Can we fund a big syncro flag to help people find us?
My own plan involves a guerrilla poster attack on the rear of the land train ;)

I can't add much to what's been said already, but even so, it's worth saying again - a big thank you to everyone involved, the organising, driving, marshalling, cooking, corralling and cajoling were all excellent! :ok

A great weekend, and always good to catch up with everyone, and with the small bonus of raising a very satisfying amount of cash for charity.

I just need to buy my old man a bottle of wine now to make up for what was left on his drive after I cleaned my van on the way home yesterday.... though I'm sure it'll be good for the roses. :)

Brilliant result as was last year... thanks Simon and everyone else listed.


Let's add Georgia Pollard to that list of helpers who pulled in a lot of punters like Jane and helped sell a lot of tickets too...
And Jenny of course who spent most of last night in the counting house... while I was watering 3 allotments hehe... :)

While Sharon was shooing the interlopers away inside got a few good photos... which I'll put up in due course
