Just home now.

I had a great weekend thanks to Roy for badgering us into going down.
To Seanie and John for the quiz and to Kevin and Joulke for the burgers.

See you all next year.

Michael.

John, ill refer that to our sponsorship division :-D

Many thanks to Roy for organising such a brilliant event, and for the invite. The skies were fantastic , the company was even better.
Skelligs Lodge couldnt have been better, and thanks to Kevin and Liz for keeping us fed.

Also a small thanks to those of you who picked up various bits and pieces over the weekend from us :-)

Roll on 2015!

Clear Skies,

Stephen
