Dave's dead stick <---- Dave's Tumblin' Dice went dead stick and he had to land it in the outfield. He thought the plane was "this" side of the tree .... it wasn't.
Luckily Jim was there to help Dave retrieve it and Simon was on hand to offer advice (?) and record the happy scene. The plane suffered very little damage.

(It must have been like trying to eat chop suey with very long chop-sticks ed.)
12 Aug

Container clearout Items suplus to requirements (i.e. junk)

Andy and Malcolm battled in the searing heat to clear-out the NVA storage container. They did a great job.

This picture shows the items destined for the dump (excepting the mowers we hope). "It's all good stuff, a lot of nice lawn ornaments there," proclaimed Andy Hibbert, trying to flog it off .
