Is that why he also seems to wear braces all the time or is it just too many Whatits ;)

Thanks for those Jo, maybe next year. Some of those Hydro engines look interesting and nice to see a couple of Lightweights in the collection.

Did any traders attend? and if so did you bring anything back for the little one?

Did anyone notice the strap on Mike's engine running Workmate anchoring the back of it to the ground? If that was not there the workmate would be quickly go over due to the thrust from the engines.

No - but I was thinking about the bench flying away with the bigger engines .... so that explains why it didn't happen  ;D

Thanks for the photos, Jo.  Looks like a lovely day.  We had good weather here around Seattle too, cooler than we had last week, and more people out due to our national holiday.

Mike just sent me a picture of the cup we won.

Best news is that he gets to keep it for the year (and clean it  :Doh: ) then bring it back for the show next year  :)

Congratulations to both of you for putting on such a good display.  And nice to have it recognised with the trophy.

Mike,

Problem is, Jo has to keep it clean and sparkly ready to hand back for next year.  :stir:
