    Hi Tony,

    Good to see you there. What a day! The morning was wet and wild. Every stand was blown down by the wind. Ours was ripped and bent before we got there. I feared the worst when driving down from Alston I found a full sized tree almost fully across the road at Slaggyford.

    What is more, a murderer was on the loose a few miles to our west so traffic was being diverted miles around. You couldnt have made this stuff up!

    Hog roasts were very good though and fine tea from the WI. Thankfully weather changed for the afternoon and the sun came out. Jim Hearn AAPGAI and others led great casting tuition and I enjoyed the very informative walk given by Prof. Malcolm Newson, Director of the Tyne Rivers Trust. The South Tyne at Lambley is wild and spectacular.

    Many thanks to Jim & Emma at Lambley and Aiden Pollard and others at the TRT for all their efforts and keeping the day flowing despite the weather!

    BTW Who won the spin casting competiiton?

    Cheers

    Colin
