Found some snaps - hope they help redress Hudge's impression that mine was the only buggy that caught Vanessa's eye.

And the most important photo for my buggys provenance going forward is proof of it's experience - at least once - of an accredited award winning cleaning professional !


I echo Vanessa's thanks to Flags & Karen for making Swanage such a relaxed and inclusive event.

Sorry I couldnít make it guys. Had to be on my ship due to the weather. Next time.
A bad day on the water is still better than a good day in the office.

Thank you to Flags and Karen for a cracking weekend, shame about the weather but catching up with good friends made the weekend worthwhile.  ;-)up

Iíve got to say a big thank you to all you guys and girls for a cracking if somewhat moist weekend.

Not only to all that were daft enough to stay for the carnival procession but to everyone that made it to the weekend.  With the weather warnings that were in place I really do appreciate the effort that you put in. If Iím honest and it wasnít the show that I donít organise I would not have stayed for the whole shebang.

Special mentions have to go out to Snowy and Jazzy for the BBQ, the Disco and the hospitality tent where many found shelter and alcohol. Ruben for being the only crazy Dutchman to ever make it to the carnival. Patrick, Sabrina and kids for bringing the Belgian contingent.
And a massive thanks to Karen for keeping me sane whilst Iím not organising it.

Iím sure there will be lots of stories and photos to share, just ask Dave C and Gail about Fawlty Towers!
If anyone has pictures of the quickest/wettest show and shine in history can you post them?

The winners were:
Max for the Disco Dude dancing prize
Rob for the Runaround Drivers choice
Steve for the judges choice
Ruben for the least windscreen wipers on the wettest weekend in 2 months
Mark for the Bandit run (Chad will hopefully explain)
Chad for Paddyís choice.

Again thanks to you all, we raised £250 on the buffet, £810 camping plus over 40 Breakfasts, all of which has gone back to the football club for which they have asked me to pass on their gratitude and invite us back more to follow on this.

Remember it never rains on carnival.

Whoops wrong posting then thrown off the site and had to log back in...

Thatís an impressive amount of money - Iíd been led to understand buggy owners spent their last pennies on shineybli g and cheese parts.

Great Flags that you continue to not organise Swanage so we can continue to meet up and enjoy the crack...

Finally got round to uploading my pictures.

Here are the trophy winners..

Coming to England without wipers - Ruben

Wing and a prayer - Mark for driving 180 miles solo, with no back up or mechanical knowledge after his buggy hadn't been on the road for 4 years

Drivers Choice - Rob in his nice SWB JAS

Judges Choice - Steve and his very tidy and well used Sidewinder

Final carnival line up on Sunday afternoon

Using the kitchen as a workshop. Well we did need to warm up the Serpentine pulley in boiling water to get at Rob's bearings

Jazzy and Snowy's fantastically hosted Thursday night barbeque

At the Great Swanage Globe
