Well-Known Member

Just a quick summary with a few photos of SD members meet at the CLA.

I would just like to thank Gwen and Malcolm (Mr & Mrs Sikamalc) for their hospitality and generosity over the weekend.

It was also good to meet some of the other members and to put faces to names.

Morena as alredy said on another post it was really good to meet some of the members and there was a really good feeling and buzz about the group.

Sorry Muddy seemed to miss you off the photos.

From left to right - Morena, Tartanjock and Sikamalc putting the world to rights.

Steyr243 (alias Uncle Fester!) with Tika308 and Ghost.

Further debate!




Group photo showing the T Shirts which caused considerable interest in and around the show.


Techman on the right picking Morena's vast amount of knowledge on ageing deer by cast antlers.


Tartanjock and Sikamalc relaxing.


Guess who these knees belong to!


More clues to who's knees are these. Its evident he does not do much stalking on his knees.


Right said Fred relaxing after a busy day signing autographs!


The bar-be-que of venison steak and sausage JAYB was fantastic and it was a great evening with Robin, Cherry, Gwen, Malcolm, Andy and Nick and quite a large amount of drink was absorbed to the heat. Once again thank you and hope to meet you all again soon.

Absolutley fantastic time was had meeting all the other Site Members, good general chit chat and banter.

Glad I made it in the end, as has already been said, nice to put a face to a "Forum Name" and then their proper names.

Cheers Again "smithp18" for one of your many T shirts that you bought (Mine Still Not Here).

A good day, red hot, enjoyed the pint with you all in the bar.

Cheers to ALL who I met.

The T shirts look great

As a new member to the site, we missed the opportunity to order the T shirts.
Is there any chance of doing any more T shirts? We would be up for a couple.
Great photos - shame the photos missed off Muddy but his mug shot is on the site enough already!

Well, I'm glad you all had a great time. I just want you to know I am not jealous at all at not being able to get there. I spent my time productively slashing the tyres on, my one time mates, camper van, the one that we could not use for the show as he was going away :evil:

Well done people.

hi all,
Just to say how glad we were that we made the journey to meet some of the other members.
Malcolm, you do a mean roebuck steak and thank you and Gwen for your hospitality. bye the time Andy and Nick had arrived things had started to become hazey :confused: She who must be obeyed said that the malt whisky was disappearing very quickly and that i should slow down so the others can catch up, I replied sod that if we wait too long it will all have evaporated, ;) .
As for the Sunday I remember it was very hot and that we met Stone and his partner, his t-shirt looked very smart, all we have got to do now is get him to fit into it as well as mine fits me :rolleyes: :rolleyes: sorry mate couldn't resist it :evil:

We went to the show to look at the different moderators, and decide which to buy, what did I buy? a bloody salmon rod, dont ask me I dont know why either :oops:
It may be because we are in Scotland for the end of August and I must have thought I would give myself a challenge, throw a spinner round its antlers and play it to a standstill. :oops:

great show and great company

Hi Everyone, Have not been able to get on the site due to our internet connection being down.
It was great meeting you all at the CLA and daughter and future son in law enjoyed your company also.
Incidentally Lins says the Wedding Evening invitation on the 23rd is still on.
Send me a PM for directions. You will probably have to introduce yourselves on arrival as I could well be under the influence by then.

Hi all, looks like a great time was had, I wish I could have been with you all. Sadly that would have meant comming home off holiday a week earlier, and that was never likely to happen! So glad to see the shirts worked out well, I hope everyone has theirs by now, except ME!
I'm told theres a parcel waiting for me, so I hope thats it!
I can start a new order list if enough people want them. I suggest we run the next lot with just the S.D. logo, and donate any profitds to H4H. Let me know what you think.



Kind regards,


Site Staff
