First things first...
Get the mandatory pics of 101s
in the arena out of the way...

The 101 Club didn't have a stand at this show
(for various reasons) and although the organisers
suggested we go on the SureTerm stand, we felt we'd
prefer somewhere a little more 'social', so off we
went to find the nice people on the GLASS stand...

Although quite sunny during the day,
it got somewhat cooler in the evening...

At some point in a rather drunken state, I noticed there
was a mini fairground with... dodems!
So off we trotted to have a go...

Obviously, being the responsible sort, and
not wanting to give any mixed messages about
driving whilst under the influence, I had to
quickly recruit a driver...

Elizabeth
Now make no mistake, at a mere 9 years old
Elizabeth was by far the best driver on the track

We totally annihilated the opposition!

I reckon you can expect to see her in some
serious competition in a few years...

The next and final day we took Simons
bargain of the show, a 200Tdi Rangie off
around the surprisingly excellent albeit not
too challenging off-road course.

Obviously, as this was the last part of the show, the wind stopped
and the sun shone in time for a nice leisurely drive home...

Thanks muchly to GLASS for having us, it made a very nice and
welcome change from being bombarded with 101 questions all weekend!
