July 2003 - Billing Aquadrome
Well what can I say apart
from an amazing weekend was has by all..... Most people set of Friday
afternoon for the 150mile drive down to Northampton, when I arrived
at 8am on Saturday morning everyone looked a bit worse for wear!
Not surprising when I saw what they had been drinking and that they
had spent over £160 at Tesco that day! Things where going
great all day the sun was red hot and there were no clouds in the
sky, Kelly, Lisa and Laura decided they would sneak off to buy some
things which later turned out to be water pistols. A water fight
was started to which they did loose, afterall we got our buckets
and soaked them. Ben and Chris had bought a large party marque (which
Mike had then slept in on the Twister mat friday night) Come mid
afternoon a rather strong wind got up and the next thing we know
our Marque has decided to take off! Dropping our beers we ran after
it to watch it land on peoples tents and then blow further across
the site, it took a fair few people to catch it. Once we had it
held down the wind seememd to die off, under closer inspection the
Marque was totally wrecked the polls were bent in half and all the
plastics were smashed.
We were camping right
at the side of the river that runs round the side of the site many
threats were made to throw people in and Wayne was the first with
a helping hand from Greg. Later on everyone attacked Buzz who as
he went into the river managed to take Shane with him, once Shane
got out he then threw Buzz's trainers and everyone was either jumping
in or being pushed in (see pics and videos).
Come the night and after
a meal in the pub we went over to the fairground where we played
on the arcades and went on some rides (Laura, I wont tell everyone
what happened.....hehe) before heading back to the tents for some
more beer drinking.
