    haha that's what I thought too Matt. Ah well, if it comes to the worst we'll all have to sit in a pub for the day drinking

    Sooooooo.....how did the weekend go for you all then ?

    I'm happy to report that I was not in any fit condition to go anywhere following my stag night on the Friday night. Large amounts of falling down water were consumed ( although astonishingly, I didn't...fall down that is ! ). Accurate reports have me being seen returning home wearing a nuns outfit, carrying a blow up cow under my arm .

    ....all of which has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with Manchester photography....but it was a fun night.
    If it 'ain't broken........ Don't try to mend it !

    It's been a wonderful weekend for me and I'm sure for the rest of us....even getting splash shots at the AVP when it was pouring down rain and the fine AVP burgers and chips. At least I didnt get sick, but I did have gas.

    The weather put on a great show for us on sunday!!! (Nooooot)

    Mind you at 6pm, sitting in the Airport pub garden the sun did finally make an appearance. It's a shame there was virtually no traffic though and i had to get back to Sheffield....typical.

    The Friday night!? You want to try going to bed at 4.15am on the Sunday morning from a night out then being up again at 7am

    Back on topic, I too think it was a good meet

    Cheers fellas,

    Me and Kevin made the most of it and were rewarded with the EK 330 at 1930 in sublime light-and within three minutes the sun disappeared for good!

    A good weekend overall and great to see so many people.

    Yeah, go on, rub it in!!

    Glad everyone enjoyed themselves. I have rebooked my ticket for the 30th, so if anyone is around then, and I actually manage to get over, it would be nice to see someone.
