to this month’s newsletter.
After last month's chapter and
verse, I thought I would give you all a break, and trim it right back.
Mainly because I have been so busy with my own sheet I have not really done
much UKP related.
month I had a sitting at my tattooist that lasted 5 1/2hrs, thankfully my
arse had gone numb so that took my mind of the pain being inflicted upon my
left arm. Being gluten for punishment, I am booked back in on the 14th
September for another full day of torture.
have been quite a few shows on over the last month, none of which my time
or finances have allowed me to attend. Therefore with VW Festival happening
last weekend I was well and truly ready for it. VW Festival usually signals
the closing of my show camping year, so I am planned on going out with
style. Foolish, child like behavior mixed in with a little bit of dressing
up, all gently rationalised and gelled together by my good friend ;alcohol!
weekend was a blast! Meeting up with
old friends and new, which is what it is all about for me. The cherry on the top, was UK Passats
winning Best Watercooled Club. Well
done to all of you guys, not just the ones on the stand, but to all of the
dedicated members who have helped spread the good word, and flown the UKP
flag with pride.
said previously, VW Festival signals the close of my weekend show season,
which is why a group of us were still sat in the camping field at 6pm on
the Sunday. With the added bonus of
us leaving at this time, there were no traffic jams on the way out. Another excellent show organised by some
truly dedicated people, which always seems to leave me with a good feeling
and makes me wonder what next year will bring……
August saw another local (to me) show, VWNW at Tatton Park in Cheshire. I
keep missing this show year after year, every time I plan to attend,
something gets in the way. By all accounts it is a cracking show, with all
the elements you would want. Air and water pumpers sharing the same space.
Gone are the days or the 90's when this would never have thought to be
possible. Thankfully all parties have now opened their arms to each other,
and both share the love for the VW emblem, regardless of its method of
show pics can be found here
a little taster to get you started.
next month, I wish you a fond farewell and wish you all luck in whatever
adventures you are upto.
