Looked like good weather too for once.
Shame we couldn't make it this weekend.
Let's hope the better weather trend lasts for Boddy

Sunday was a lovely day weather wise, shame saturday was not, 1st battle felt a bit like the 1st part of faint hart, with the lack of MOPs but the good weather did bring them out on Sunday

Some really good photo's (and I'm using a :twisted: bow)

Those of you that missed it, well it was a good event, ditches were interesting. From downfiled looked like nothing, up close definite pause for thought moment
Away from the battle all are soldiers.

Although water filled ditches WOULD have been intresting but not one i'd like to experience :shock: . I would'nt have let you push me back through it if it was wet :D [/quote]

Hi , Lord Roos here , (still cant remember my ****** password !)

Got to say thanks to ALL who helped with the joust on both days.Without you myself & Steve would'nt have been able to get on with it as we did , also to The Woodvilles for beating us up before they had to pretend we had killed them :lol:
Ghost , Alan - nice script - hope those that missed it feel wretched .

Paul - Keep it up mate ,it was only the weather that prevented a mass invasion of MOPs
