just a quick wee note about the past weekend- it was awesome and even though the weather was pants to begin with, it brightened up and pure sunshine for 2 days. there was a CF roadshow and a big way organised by Gordon Hodgkinson which looked awesome from the ground (didnt take part in any of that stuff) but big thanks goes to Gordon and the rest of the guys from IPC, Ian, Pat, and Jason for the CRW, Francis, Jade, John, Judith, Maggie, PD and the rest of the guys from the Wild Geese, adn the Queens Uni Club for making it a successful weekend. Dont know if any of the guys who came over from England are on this forum, but big thanks to yas all!!!!

25 Years! I feel old now - I was 19 and on SL in the IPC when the Geese started.

Great to see its still enduring with enthusiasm. Here's to your next 25!

Yes, it was a fab weekend. Here's a link to some photos I took and of some that were taken of me. Including a 12 stone pig which we ate for dinner! Yum!
