    We kicked off the Saturday with a bigger crowd than we were expecting tbh!
    Was an awesome day!
    Now will you listen to your elders when they speak from their experience and tell you that it will work!

    I am glad that it was awesome and that "no exit wound" was well received.

    Had hoped to get down with the WeeBurdies on Saturday avo, alas major tantrums and tiaras from a BabyBurd who refused to sleep all day, meant there was no way I could possibly inflict them on members of the public. Her screams would have drowned out anyone attempting to play music over her ! Glad to hear it went well though. Well done all involved!
    WeeBurd.

    Well done eveerybody involved! Despite uncontrollable encumberances throughout the festivities the music was brought unto the crowd!!

    That's not gonna happen... ever!

    Had a really good weekend. A few highlights for me -

    The Diesel N' Dust set. A few of us had a good ol' dance at the front and thoroughly enjoyed Kevins double pedal country rock.

    Stevie.T rocked the place. Perfect end to the two days. Holy Diver and Hurricane were superb. All 3 band members and guest played extremely well.

    Thouroughly enjoyed being on stage with Astronot and BH. Cheers to everyone who watched either band.

    Cheers to Ryan for the kit, Andrew and Moncur for the amps and to everyone involved with the P.A. I also feel Mr Hobbs deserves a huge pat on the back for his organisational skills. Well done!

    One last shout out... to Davie Hobbs senior's hat. Brilliant!
