Big Thank You to everyone for LATP 2018
« on: August 29, 2018, 09:56:09 am »
What an awesome weekend!  ;D

It was great to see lots of old friends, and fantastic to see so many new faces and their Land Rovers.

Hope everyone had as a good a time as we had. It’s the people (old and new) that make the event such a fun, friendly and relaxed weekend.

A massive thank you to everyone who helped behind the scenes. I’m not naming names as I don’t want to miss someone out. But you, and everyone else, knows who you are

All the people, the great beer, and delicious grub made Friday and Saturday evenings lively and enjoyable. Special thanks to Vinny and his little helper Mick for doing the catering
 
For the people that stayed Sunday night, we had a cracking evening - who could forget Mick’s conversations with Violet, AND the rest of it!  He says he doesn’t know what came over him but he’s worried that it may be Ashcroft!

We had a 150 vehicles on Saturday – a very very respectable turnout. Sunday’s weather was a ‘tiny bit rainy’ but some hardy people still turned up

This was our last year at the NCM and, despite the weather on Sunday, we managed to raise a very respectable £1075 for them

The 2019 venue will be announced soon – make sure you block off August bank holiday 2019 for the NEW Leafers at t’Pit!

Cheers from the 2018 organisers ... Paula, Mick, Vinny, Alex & Calum

NB Due to the weather on Sunday, we have quite a few 2018 plaques left over. As the profit from the plaques is used to pay for the running of this forum, we have decided to make them available to any forum member who wants one. They will be £5 each (which includes P&P). If you’d like one, please PM me

Two quick thank yous from me!

Firstly, to Paula and the rest of the folk who helped behind the scenes. Paula (and her mighty to do list) are the reason that the weekend was a success ❤

Secondly, to you guys for turning up, offering to help, and generally being wonderful.

I was pretty nervous in the run up to it, but I needn't have been. As everyone says, it's the people that make it what it is.

We'll keep you updated on our plans for a new venue, but for now it's over and out.

Fifth year at Leafers but the first time camping on site and Oh what I have missed the other 4 years.

A big thank you to all those who worked so hard to make it happen, and cleared up after we had gone.

Met up with lots of old friends and made plenty of new ones.

Thanks again
