A weekend memorable for 'Dr Who', Kelly Holme's second Gold Medal at the Olympics, Eileen's Birthday Party, England's Ashes victory at Trent Bridge and the Sunday night ceilidh spot.
Saturday morning was spent preparing the props for 'Dr Who' in the afternoon.
The performance went well and the audience seemed to enjoy themselves. Amongst the many highlights were:
* The Tardis (constructed by Kev)
* the Entrance of the Doctors
* Davros vs Darth Vader
* the Cybermen
* Davros' attempt at 'Getting Upstairs'.
Sunday afternoon was Eileen's birthday party on the campsite, which was taken over a bit by England's tense victory over the Australians ... leading to a rapid revamp of plans for the evening ceilidh spot ... and some rapid construction of cardboard cricket bats by Trev and Paul.
The spot started with 'Saturday Night' on, which rapidly switched into a pastiche on the recent Ashes victory. The audience were immediately in tune with the switch, entering into the spirit and roaring Dave B on as he ran in to bowl the demon delivery ...
After that, 'Glorisher' with the cumulative leap - Andy over 5.
And then, 'Skirmish at Trent Bridge' with Mike as Umpire dismissing various dancers from the floor.
And afterwards, someone wanted to know how we knew that England would win, so that we could prepare the performance !
A splendid weekend.
