Captain K's Class of 09 memories, in no particular order...

- The Edwards' man bag + Heathy's golden shower
- Being chased down by Mad Klein Chris
- The 'Church of Retro'
- Max's cat fight in the woods
- Beating Kenda every time
- The Valins' family fun day
- Edwards' gay protest start line walk
- Simon's Ti Tim Davies attack mode on the shute (and top 40 first lap)...
- Sage words from Papa Hilts on the hill
- Sufr's practice stack on the shute of death
- Fondant fancies on the final lap
- Stato Jo's home-from-home camping set-up
- Max's team talk at 6am outside my tent...
- Watching a Tenth Anniversary racing hard in 2009 - way to go!
- Fluoro in abundance...
- Meeting Mr Regard in the flesh
- Smokey logs
- Lots of Sports Casuals 'virgins' turning out and having a good time
- Rain starting on my first lap - 2am
- The Roberts holding up in its first race
- Jez's mid-lap comfort break...
- Failed generator = no tunes :-(
- Chez Edwards 2am hospitality - not ideal preparation...
- Trading paint with the Kit Kats over 24 hours and tying on 19 laps each
- Homecoming queens' welcome on the last corner

More as amnesia releases...

Lots said already but another great MM weekend. Rain held off enough to keep it enjoyable and keep laps a bit interesting.

Highlights for me

mid lap on course heckling with/inspired by Heathy
The hard route downhill, “mad skills” required.
Not crashing all weekend
Knocking off the unicyclist on L2
Alcohol induced dwarf conversation on Friday night

Lowlights

The numpty who crashed into my rear disc/qr on lap 1 on a fireroad!
3am Sunday ‘trainspotting’ experience
No gorillas or disco in the woods
M1 drive home. Clutch cramps.

That was my first mayhem and I really enjoyed it,although getting up at 3am Saturday to get there and then not being able to sleep until Sunday night was 'interesting' (too much caffine :twisted: )
Big thanks to the rest of my team,especially Cchris2lou after I forgot it was my lap next :oops:
Retro camp was definatey the best place to hang out and I can't belive my fastest lap of the weekend was on the Fat Chance :D
C u all next year :!:
