I was all set to go, and the girls were set to go (Saturday riding lessons cancelled), but then I came down with what is probably a bug or virus on Thursday night. :(

I've hung off and hung off calling a halt to it, in the hope that I might feel better this morn, meaning we'd be able to travel down, but no, sadly still don't feel anywhere near well enough. >:(

My sincerest apologies to everyone there for not being able to attend (especially Jane and Lil' Barry), but my very best wishes to you all for a great meet-up in loving memory of a great man. ;)

Sorry to hear that Gambo; hope you're OK now.

It was another good weekend this year, with the weather holding up very well until Sunday evening.
Dezy, Mark and myself from this great forum present, the rest being made up of family and other friends. Iwould say 20in total.

This year the cup was a 3 way tie on score between Barry and Jane's Sons, Jack and Ben, and last year's winner, Rob.
So it was eventually decided on time, Jack ultimately walking away with first prize by just 3 seconds.

Then end of the day saw us all at Uncle Barry's memorial tree with a bottle of Tribute in our hands.

Cheers Uncle Barry. You old Goat.

Thanks Nic.

Quite a bit better now, but still not 100%. The older I get, the longer it seems to shake off/recover from illness.


Great to hear the weather was kind and every had a good time at Barry's favourite permission.

I was gutted I couldn't attend, made all the worse by the disappointment from the girls who were looking forward to it as well. :(

Mark brought the fishing gear too.

Not to make you feel even worse, you understand.  ;D

Yeah...I know!!! ::)

The girls were looking forward to a spot of fishing too, as they really enjoyed it last time when Mark was kind enough to loan them his fishing gear and bait.
