    Well i've just returned from Pontins, with a 4th place in the second section *go flixton* And it was an exceedingly good weekend :) Friday was to say the least eventful........ Those who where there will probably heard of Lynchies antics lol! And I met loads of tMPer's! Drummergurl, geordiecolin, super_sop, skweeky. john, roger, t-horn, neiltwist and loadsssssss more!!!! The tMP concerts were great :D:D:D:D

    Did everyone else have a good time and has anyone got any embarrasing stories!?!?

    Just back (decided not to stop the sun evening)

    Well, Pontins hasnt changed - chalets up to usual standards ;) Stompers still as good / bad as ever. Met so many ppl - all that chatting stopped me drinking too much :shock:

    Funniest thing - Craig in a skirt / blouse and wig. (hope you can repair that split in the seam) hehe.

    Does enyone know the names of the Saturday night (2-4.00 am ish) cornet/flugal soloist - very well played but I suspect very p1ssed. Where you tMPers?

    Nice rendition of Star Wars, Imperial March, Orange Juice and loads of other well played random tunes - also lots of cheering so there must have been a fair sized audience. Why was this concert not in the Pontins Programme?

    The tMP concerts were excellent and the highlight just had to be Do-Ray-Me in the main hall - is that excellent choreography from Staffordshire Band in the score? If not should be.

    Saturday night was brilliant... much fun indeed! A slight possibility that I drank too much, but it's a close call (no hangover on sunday although I do have a nice bruise in the middle of my head from an 'incident' with the window sill!)
    Very nice to meet lots of people from here again, would love to mention everyone but then I'd forget someone and they might cry.
    I'm going to bed very soon.

    Well we only stayed the Saturday night but what a night! No hangovers at all but that's no suprise as I've never had one! Big apology to Jez from tmp - I think it was twice during Saturday that you called me by my name and I claimed not to know who you were! Ever so sorry. Met quite a few people but predominantly partied with the Wem lot. Highlights of the weekend for me:

    1) - A fantastic performance..................at the 11am rehearsal.
    2) - Stopping, we'll go down in history for that!
    3) - Watching Mrs Thorne get drunk on Baileys (he,he).
    4) - Erm..........participating in the Bavarian Stomping show, it was very scary hanging upside down between that man's legs! Thought the 'boos' from the crowd when it was stated I was from Wem was a bit unfair and uncalled for.
    5) - The Floral Dance by tmp band on the Saturday night - excellent atmosphere.
    6) - Hearing those fish making a noise!!!!!!!!!!

    I think I will be having a well-deserved sleep this afternoon!! What a great weekend!! :biggrin: Was pleased with our result (4th in 2nd Section) and thought the tMP band was brill :cool: Was nice to meet lots of tMPers we hadn't seen before and see all those regular faces again.

    Highlights for me:

    1. Our great result despite all the things that went wrong on Sunday morning and the dire start to the piece!
    2. tMP Band Concert on Saturday night
    3. Super_sop dressed as a woman...very amusing
    4. BBCBari and Toby (think it was him quite a bit of wine by then!) singing Cheeky Girls in the Sunday night Karaoke.

    ???? Is this something else I can't remember? Doh!!

    Weekend highlights include:

    1. WINNING :D :D :D
    2. Celebrating winning :p :p :p :p
    3. Pythagoras getting his head trapped in the sofa bed when BBC_bari and myself decided to shut it while he was sleeping on it. The screams of "you've trapped my ear!!" seemed a little understated when it is considered that we couldn't see his head at all!!
    4. Me hiding in a wheelie bin and jumping out at Andy_Euph.
    5. Tmp band saturday night, we went down an absolute storm, well done everyone.
    6. Kari riverdancing by herself.
    7. That strawberry tequila stuff i was drinking last night. good stuff.
    8. My temporary acquistion of a Haydock Tie.
    9. Waking up this morning and i suspect, still being drunk.
    10. The amazing tmp pontins laundry fight, which incidentally aidan won. sorry about the noise Roger!!
    11. Is it me or do the mutant seagulls get bigger every year??
