Why is your foot unservicable?

Quote from: "Skweeky"
A few more from me.

I know some of you have fallen for the frankly unbelievable story that 558's been U/S  :roll:  but I can now exclusively announce that she was actually in Turkey with us:

558 had a lovely time chilling out on a lounger with Captain Pampers:


Then 558 cooled off in the pool with Xander:


558 also had a great time splashing in the sea:


So there, now you know the truth.

Unservicable, my foot!  :D
We had two Whales washed up recently on the banks of the River Humber,I see a third found it's way onto a sun lounger in Turkey !

 :lol:  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

I've been to Rome for a break with Mrs Sickbag this week and so here's my Vulcan cap’s tour of Rome (photos aren't brilliant as I only took my compact rather than carry my Canon about):

Firstly, outside the collusseum


Then inside the collusseum


Vulcan at the Vatican - in St Peter’s Square


With Mrs Sickbag at the Trevi Fountain


And finally at the top of the Spanish Steps

and another one from me courtesy of Barclays (they reserve copyright but I'm sure a bit of publicity will please them), I went to the ATP Tennis finals at the O2 yesterday (should have seen Andy Murray but unfortunately he pulled out) and Barclays who sponsored the event had the Premiership trophy and the ATP World tour final Trophy on display and were doing free pics of people with it - fortunately i was wearing my vulcan fleece!

Since comments, serious, funny, quasi sarcastic or otherwise have been posted about the Fun Competition this is to clarify that the competition is still running, the initial brief was that towards the end of the year a winner would be chosen, well we are only 11 months through the year so the Competition is still open.

Nice to see the entries to date and that the logo has been to so many places ......................

So keep the entries coming it's not too late enter it is free  ...................

Well given that in 4 weeks or so it's "the end of the year" I would have though we were now well within the remit of "towards the end of the year" as it's December this week.

I'm not bothered how long you run it for but in my opinion the longer you run things like this, the staler they get towards the end, and for the sake of the participants (many of whom have probably forgotten they entered), perhaps it would be nice to publicise a finish date (even if that's not for a few weeks).

Midday on Jan 1st is 'towards the end of the year', albeit only 12 hours.....  :twisted:

Why not draw the line at say Xmas eve, and announce a winner on New Year's eve?

Ok, only 15 days to go till closing of competition.

Competition will close at 03.00 hrs on 1st January 2012, that gives you three hours after midnight to get your fun entries in and can include any festive creations that you may feel like posting.

Judging will commence early in the New Year and will be undertaken by completely a impartial team from outside of the Club or Trust and who will therefore be completely unbiased..............................................

Results will be posted as soon as possible after the 10 January 2012


So give it your best for the short time left but please no  :oops:  :oops:  :oops: ones  :!:  :!:

Bob

A late entry from me.
This was taken earlier this year at Braunston Marina near Daventry. I have also posted a description of the boat.

Not a great picture but an interesting perspective on BIG Pigeons!

Thought it might be interesting enough to post in this part of the forum as well.
