    Even better than last year! Thank you to the organisers who put in so much time and effort to ensure it all went well. The food stall and bar were just what was wanted, laning brilliant, if surprisingly slippery, and best of all was meeting so many new faces and blasts from the past. James Martin appearing set off a buzz like rumours at a gig that some surprise guest star was appearing (sorry James:D), and every vehicle that went out on the lanes seemed to reappear mostly intact.
    Roll on LZ13!

    Thank you to the organisers. We had a brilliant weekend, it was our first time taking the Disco out and we felt in very safe hands with all the lovely, experienced and helpful people around us. Looking forward to next year already :)

    Thanks to everyone in group 5 who made the Laning trip such good fun. Well done to the hippos who managed the river crossing with the doors still attached.
    The smiles afterwards were so big that they wouldn't fit on my camera.

    Best start on the routes for next year as I've got a feeling there's gonna be a few more than this year.

    Well done everyone!!

    A superb weekend. Our first and very enjoyable! Thanks to Funkykipper (group 5) for the excellent leading....no map reading-Just did it! and thanks for the gate openers/closers- we were lucky enough to be in 2nd spot so no work for us!
    Thanks to all the organisers...it all went very well!
    No Disco damage in 6 hrs laning but cracked windscreen on way home!!

    Yes, see the constructive criticism thread. It was my first one having only joined late last year I think but I thought it was great. Few tweaks to make it awesome :D:D

    Dunno why I remember it now, but ... I have to apologise for not setting up the slalom event. Simply put I led laning on both days and wasn't available on the field!!

    Have to say thanks ....

    The A-bar from a Discovery I picked up free from LZ12, I believe it was from @Lakes Rob and @110woman ... Many thanks, it's fitted a treat after a bit of a hacksaw, fettling the plates for it, welding and a lick of paint .. ;)

    Have to take the winch apart to get it out now, but I'm looking on that as a planned in security feature ... ;)
