The Smurfs Rally 2012



Myself, Mandy, Teach, Gaz, Carm, Dave, Kerry and kids rocked up on Friday night to join our mates Jeff and Ali who will be coming to our rally with a couple of mates.

I will give up drinking and take up religion

We immediately settled down to the serious task of drinking, with Carmy setting about some falling-over juice purchased from Aldi - and yes she did end up falling over in the marquee. On the Friday, Gatecrasher headlined and invited their friends Smokin Gun along who played for a crate of beer. Smoking Gun were absolutely awesome and if they don't rock the place down at our rally I will give up drinking and take up religion. As usual we all partied really hard and led the way in some serious bopping on the dance floor.

The next day we foolishly agreed to take part in the silly games which was where the legend known as Gary Bernard Brooks came into his own. Forget the olympics it was a sight to behold to watch this highly trained athlete destroy all comers in the musical chairs. To see such passion was a sight to behold as he dived under armpits and between legs to take victory in this prestigious event.

I stormed ahead of the field and just as I was about to give my Usain Bolt victory sign there was a bolt of a different kind

Talking about highly trained athletes (not) yours truly then volunteered to take part in drag racing of a different kind which basically involved legging it in womens clothing. I stormed ahead of the field and just as I was about to give my Usain Bolt victory sign there was a bolt of a different kind which shot up my back leg and I ended up pulling my bloody hamstring!

The evening involved more drinking and Salutation Mcc highly prominent on the dance floor. The headline band were Already Gone who were also very good. During the evening, Dave Slack from the Smurfs commented on how we like to party and said that he will be bringing as many of the Smurfs along to our rally as possible.

To top up a great weekend there were two name cards passed around and Kerry won 32 quid on one and Mandy won 20 quid on the other. It was once again great to enjoy a small rally with a great atmosphere and great people.
