    Unfortunately, having dragged it from lands end to John o groats in the pitch dark on the roughest ground in living memory, the photo wasn't remembered pal!!! The joys of the evening stalk. On a serious note though, I was very pleasantly surprised with the new ground Colin. Thanks again for the invite. I have high hopes for the ground this year. I could do a write up on the Sunday morning stalk too but I think you know how that one went........the bang wasn't quite what I had in mind see you again soon pal.
