Doris on the trailer with Ed & James, waiting for the Amoc contingent to arrive.
Just after we got the big green gazebo up on Friday, the rain really started, so loud in fact, that you had to shout to be heard over the noise of it ! As a result, the small gazebo was installed on the trailer to stop the table and candles from getting wet ;-)
Sadly, the candles still had a tendency to blow out at 4mph+, which did spoil the evenings mobile dining. Along with the plates sliding around and the occasional slop of red wine, which could make it all the way to your elbow on hard acceleration.
While on tour with Rob driving, this largish bloke comes over and asks him 'Who is responsible for this vehicle'. Fearing that our passenger service is about to be cancelled I own up, only to find that it's Jukka from the Finland (Viku's mate, who helped with loads of tech info at the start of the project).
With a little sign writing, some more stickers and revised banners, the Amoc Tours ' Deathtrap Express' was ready for the Saturday service.
Jukka returns for some more pictures and a dry look over the car. Perhaps he will convince Viku that he needs a Gazebo'd dining trailer ?
We thought we were lazy having sit down trailer tours around the show to see everything, but the vast number of Mokes seemed to be over filled with people too !
It took literally seconds (and a big sniffy marker pen) to convince Louise to decorate the table with a club logo. Craig helped with colouring in, while everyone else helped by using the table to eat from.
Some low angle 'hanging off the trailer cam' pictures from a sight seeing tour of the site. Including Andy Leach's Beast, Morris dancers, a bit of swerving by other Minis and a bit of swerving by Rob 'Torque-Steer' Sparkes after 'accidentally' hitting the power band when pulling away !!!!!
The dead safe camera position...
With Sunday being the last day (and hot & sunny) we packed up the gazebo in favour of the parasols.
Overtaking Mini World.
Heading straight for MiniMotos.
Passing the MiniList.
This lady caught up with us when we stopped to look at the Portuguese Mokes. Apparently she had been running 1/2 way across the show to get a picture, because her son thinks that Minis are silly little cars and he only likes things with V8s in !!!

After everything was packed up and the table folded down, we just needed to do one more trip, which gave the opportunity for some terribly responsible stand up surfing ;-)

Lastly... After all the discussions on Kev/chav driving styles Mr Town was spotted in the classic 'elbows on wheel' pose.....
