NABD Rally 2009



The weekend began with what should have been an hours drive turning into about 3 hours, due to the usual miserable Friday traffic on the M6. I arrived, accompanied by 3 excited kids (first rally this year), to a tent already put up and a nice cold cider...cold playing a big part in the weekend!!! The gang were already there Syze, Paul, Thora, Lauren, Tracey, The Beetles, Billy and Pat. Paul complete with bubble wrap on his head, as protection against dangerous rocks, with his record he should have wrapped himself up completely!!

The first surprise of the eve came with Syze getting down on a bended knee...amongst the sheep shit

The first surprise of the eve came with Syze getting down on a bended knee...amongst the sheep shit - to make it romantic...and producing a ring, bought from Murghens Keep. Of course I agreed, how could I not after seeing the ring and already surviving a 20 year trial.

The bands in the evening were good, as we all started the drinking of cold beers to keep us warm and were joined on the dance floor by Steve and Mags. Then, with the kids, we retired early to the gazebo to play an 'electrocution' game, whilst getting shouted at by a fellow rallier for being too noisy. Just after retiring to bed, the others returned and decided to play the same game...the poor fella was well pissed off!

Saturday was interesting, friendships between ex members were re kindled, flyers were given out by the kids and then found on the floor later on. Dan celebrated his birthday with an inflatable guitar that amazingly turned into a real one at some point. More drink was had and again we all retired to the gazebo, no buzzer game this time, but Tim made up for it by being a little loud, much to the upset of our friend in the next tent, who decided to make an appearance to inform us that he had to ride home the next day...ahhhhhh!

Sunday...time to pack and go home and yes it was bloody hot, typical, first time all weekend. Still a great one was had.
