A day out Down South

A day out Down South

Postby exocet_uk on Sat 20 Feb 2010, 3:43 pm

Hi all,

Been a while since I'd been out to play, so me and Geoff Hibbert decided to make the epic journey South to play on the Plain, hoping for better luck after last times blank.

Slow to get going whilst the sunshine was out, typical. However, after the first Gazelle and an epic snow shower, things kicked off and we were treated to multiple visits of several Testers and ever improving weather.
