    So when can we buy tickets for LZ12?
    It's been said before, but serious thanks to all who put so much work, thought, blood, sweat and (probably) tears as well into making this a truly great weekend.

    Photos to follow when I've sorted them.

    And wasn't it brilliant to be able to put faces to names!

    A big thank you to Sam and Rob for doing the catering...the curry was excellent. I know how hard you both worked. Hopefully next year you will be able to relax and enjoy the event more :hug:

    Thanks for the video LC. I forgot to put a decent sized card in the camera, so it ran out just as Linda was filming this. The Grandkids will love this:D

    So who will open the planning thread for next year?


    What were your impressions people who went?



    NO PROBS WITH THIS YEAR - REALLY ENJOTED IT - but how many more could have helped? So not all sh*t is taken on by a small few - or was I mistaken?

    Thanks to all who spent their time making such an enjoyable event.

    However to involve the unheard populous :
    Event location - to stop bitching - take a poll.
    What needs to happen?
    What events need to take place?
    Intro Day (Friday.. get ****e to site xxx am.. nn turn up to create the event..)
    Day one (Sat) Green lane 1,2,3 Start 12:00; 12:30; 13:00, whatever
    leaders, 5no max per route, route intro & rules
    Who does what - and by when?

    What is needed?
    What food?
    By when?
    At what cost to create / and per vehicle / person?
    Day 2 - what happens there? - everyone ****ed off it seems to me; OK if a long way to go but no goodbyes - sigh.

    Trying to sort the location isn't an easy thing - there are not many places that are happy to have a load of land rovers turn up, have lanes nearby, can supply the electricity and is near the people doing the organising as there is a lot of background planning and visits to the site that many people aren't aware of. For example 110woman stored the food for Saturday evening at her house and missed the laning to be able to go and get it... With no complaints or objections so everyone else got to go laning and eat when they got back.

    Considering I'm one of the more northerly people and I was home within 3.5 hours I have no complaints...

    Nobody is ever going to be happy, where ever these events are held someone will complain. If it's held further south or North who will organise it? I'm Amazed the main organisers of the event have time to sort it as it is without the added hassle of it being hours away from them.

    There was a vast amount of planning for the food and other activities that many forum users are not aware of or able to see... There was the option of shopping for other halves and a trip to the landy museum place but nobody seemed bothered :)

    I don't understand your comment of everyone seeming ****ed off on the second day? Those who were sticking around to go laning or to P&P went at the organised time of 10.30 and others came up to the marquee to say their good byes...

    Help and suggestions I'm sure will always be greatly recieved but please be aware how much effort was put in behind the scenes and it can be disheartening to hear if people were ****ed off or thought more could have been done.
    I'm sure there will be a thread to take into account suggestions and feedback :)
