mainly using A roads it was a clear and enjoyable ride, it could however have
been a lot warmer
welcome at the site was very warm though it must be the orange glow from the T
slowly the Yodashire Massive arrived
never been a fan of camping in the damp, and erecting my poor battered pit
(really must find some more poles) in the drizzle and rain was not nice.
refuge was found in the bar where real ales and good food awaited.
loads of bands on over the weekend we had some real treats from some of the Best
bands on the rally circuit including “The Almaboobies” “General
Skullduggery” “Some kind of Mushroom” “Stevie one man and mandolin”
“Doughboys” who often also joined each others sessions, with all groups
having waived their fees this was some gesture.
sweepstake was also placed on when Ernie would be wasted, sadly the wee fellow
failed miserably in his normal activity and all bets were cancelled. Once again
a rally provided a decent real ale bar and over the weekend we drank the pub and
outside bar dry.

lasses in the food stall and bar did a sterling job providing almost 18 hours of
service per day and smiled almost throughout.
was however dragged kicking and screaming to the pub Saturday night, where I was
accosted until chucking out time.
best morning of the weekend and time to pack up and wend my way sleepily (it was
freezing the night before) down the A1
brilliant weekend. Well done to Creature and all his helpers from the wozwolf.
