Thanks to Far Coley for a great days' shooting.
Also to Neil T for being Chief Whip; and Andy G for managing the MFTA (incl. the issue of reprimands for poor time keeping)

A testing day, with the wind. But some great results nevertheless.

I saw Simon and James with their cameras during the morning session and Neil was out with mine.
So there should be some cracking shots of the first session.
I wandered loosely, aimlessly and somewhat euphorically, chatting to folks and taking photos during the afternoon session. So we should have covered the event between us.

And Neil - make sure you get the same caterers for the next shoot - their prices and their bacon butties are first class.

A memorable day for me.
The Mk3 performed faultlessly. The T50 was splendid - all that I'd hoped for. And I hit my target of double figures & PB.

Finally, from me.
An enormous thank you to Tony Cook, for his endless patience; his magnificent sense of humour; his encouragement and support from the our first lane to our last: and the speed of his astonished amazement to sincere congratulation when I hit targets.

Photos on my memory card to follow.
I'll sort out am from pm, as I go along.
You're only young once - so it's best to make it last for the whole of your lifetime.

Food was good - worth the 220 mile round trip
