    Thanks to Shaun & Karen for organising such a marvellous weekend that was filled with laughter and fun

    It was the best medicine out! The EAC can now face the world with renewed vigour once more!!

    Adhams Guide will never be the same again and the tipples were really tasty!

    Pics when we have conquered Windows 8 again!

    Thanks Shaun and Karen for some brilliant organisation and thank you Sandy and Mike for giving me and Richard a ride. It was a good but tiring weekend, lots of laughs as always. Was good to catch up with everyone at last.

    Pics for the still snowbound would be appreciated, especially the school girls gol!! I'll tell you the same as the other western run participants "wish I was there" I'm glad everyone had a good time. Hopefully I'll meet the EAC if I get to silverstone in July and take the lakes district run with Frankie. It sounds like a beautiful area. Just hold up a Guinness and I'll find it, JIM

    What a weekend, I'm surprised my sides haven't split from all the laughter, the poor guide had no idea what she let herself in for! Well Done to Shaun and Karen for their excellent organisational skills, looking forward to seeing the pics, especially those of SockMan and MattressMan!!! =))

    Thank you to all my friends in the EAC for "looking after me" on this excellent weekend trip, especially Mike & Sandy for picking us up as I'm not allowed to drive yet. Can't wait to try that new beer, ummm what was it called, Betty something?

    Wish we had places like that here in Canada! I've got to travel a thousand miles to find something even close to what you have to drive by every day. Looks like everyone had a fun time. JIM

    They were the numerous samples of brews and liquors that were part of the tour package at the end, Frankie. Which is why we all had a Taxi back to our hotel for the night, we then had a great meal before falling into bed and sleeping like logs, because we were all so well oiled!!!:beer

    Yet another great EAC experience.:cool:

    Looking forward to the Lakes, Frankie:D
