Hamilton Ghosts Weekender
Up the Junction - Lesmahagow 23-25 June 2006

Officially , commitments meant I couldn't attend this weekender, but I was free by Saturday 12pm so I called Gary to see if he fancied doing his first 200 miles running in on his new scoot by nipping through to Lesmahagow - and he duly obliged.

A nice (very) leisurely jaunt along some country roads - through some towns I'd never heard of... stopping once for coffee and once for fuel.

Once at the site, we meandered about the stalls , café (had a chicken burger as you do) and checked out the campsite for any well known reprabates.

We found Minxxy - half couped and feeling a little worse for wear - a sign that the Friday 'do' must have been good.
There was quite a good attendance spread over the campsite area and stalls/bar area with the usual high-jinx going down.

Unfortunately - seeing as we were averaging 45mph, we had to leave within an hour of getting there, so I'm not the best person to be telling you how good this weekender looked to have been - maybe Geoff (who left early on Saturday to avoid our planned race) can do me a Friday night review... ? And Minxxy one for Saturday ??

I get the feeling this will be one to try to stay over for in future.

Oh...almost forgot...here's a wee video of the music that kept people 'going' all night on Friday... although apparently it was 3 albums of Spear of Destiny :)
